Straight, bushy brows, zero contouring, and two-toned lips…these are just some of the famous Korean beauty trends that fans of K-beauty aspire to achieve.
And who better to look at for inspiration than the Korean stars themselves, namely, Song Hye Kyo of Descendants of the Sun, and Lee Sung Kyung of Doctors? Both play surgeons in their respective shows and both of their makeup perfectly capture and reflect their characters’ personalities: women of power with a hint of girly sweetness.
Want to learn how you can recreate and ace their makeup looks right in the comfort of your home? Here are our tips and tricks to copping the looks these K-stars made famous!
Look 1 - Natural
The most popular Korean makeup look is a ‘no-makeup’ makeup look that is both glowy and peachy. To get started, you will need a flawless base! Take the LANEIGE BB Cushion Pore Control to even out your skintone and for that long-lasting dewy finish. Next, take the LANEIGE Edge Drawing Eyeliner Pen to draw a thin flick. This will softly define your eyes without being too harsh for a “day” look!
Complete the look with the LANEIGE Serum Intense Lipstick in “Twinkle Coral”. Its nude, warm hue will brighten up your complexion as well as give the whole look a classic touch.
Look 2 - Bright
If you’re into makeup looks that make your features ‘pop’, then this is the one for you! Start off by taking the LANEIGE BB Cushion Pore Control to give your complexion a porcelain finish. Its oil-controlling formula will ensure that your makeup stays on all day and night! Next, define your eyes with shimmer shadows using the LANEIGE Two Tone Shadow Bar in “Coffee Bronze”. This eyeshadow seamlessly applies two different shades in one swipe, allowing you to rock that perfect eye look on the go, with ease!
To finish the look, go for the hottest lip gradation trend with the LANEIGE Two Tone Lip Bar in “Dear Pink”. Just one swipe and your lips will have that chic “bitten-lip” effect!
Look 3 – Bold
A modern take on the classic “red lips and winged liner” makeup look, this stunning MOTD will truly make you stand out. To recreate this, simply take the LANEIGE BB Cushion Pore Control to perfect your base. Second, take the LANEIGE Edge Drawing Eyeliner Pen and draw a tiny flick on your eyes for a soft wing that will add a touch of sweetness to this bold look. As for the star of the makeup look, gently apply the LANEIGE Serum Intense Lipstick in “Flash Pink” to give your lips a beautiful fuchsia tint!
Look 4 - Seductive
Whether you’re going on a date or having a night out with your best girlfriends, this sensual K-beauty look will definitely become your new go-to! To recreate this, apply the LANEIGE BB Cushion Pore Control as your base for that perfected look. Next, gently swipe the LANEIGE Two Tone Shadow Bar in “Golden Rose” all over your lids for that soft, shimmery look.
