K-Beauty Trend: Pop Of Colour On The Lids

(cover photo from LUMINNEJ)

If you've been a K-Beauty enthusiast for a while, you'd know that the secret to nailing that K-Beauty makeup look is simplicity--barely-there foundation, lightly tinted lip, a natural flush of blush on the cheeks, and the eyes kept neutral, mostly focused on creating the illusion of bigger eyes. But with the Summer air reigning bright and happy in Korea, K-Beauty has started to lean towards bright colour subtly added on the lids--a welcome change from the usual neutral shades.

So if you want to get in on the trend and add a pop of colour to your eye makeup, here are 5 makeup items you need to add to your K-beauty collection.

This dual waterproof eyeliner from Laneiege is perfect for creating that alluring eye makeup by adding a flick of colour to your cat-eye.
