We often look to K-beauty for inspiration on the latest trends in makeup and skincare. Regardless of how bizarre some of these trends may seem (synake and snail creams, anyone?), the appeal of the dewy, chok chok glow is practically universal. While the real secret to clear, glowing skin involves a long-term commitment to a healthier lifestyle and products that really work for your skin type, we just can’t resist the allure of a fast fix.


The Tone-Up beauty trend promises just that: instant brightening effects, colour-correction for a more even skin tone, and imperfection-blurring qualities conveniently packed into one easy product you put on as the last step of your skincare, before your base makeup. Think of it as a really good primer/moisturiser that just makes everything look better upon application. Though the benefits of Tone-Up products are arguably short-term (it’s not a replacement for a functional skincare routine), sometimes we just need that little mood boost of looking good to end up feeling good. Here are our product recommendations for Tone Up skincare:


Laneige White Dew Tone Up Fluid SPF35 PA+++

Like many of the trends we encounter, soap brows aren’t actually new. They're a trick from film stars and makeup artists of Old Hollywood to get fuller, perfectly shaped arches that hold. The reason why they’ve suddenly become so popular today is that with all the creams, gels, and powders available promising to give us Cara Delevingne’s brows, sometimes the simplest solution can be the best one. That’s precisely the selling point of soap brows: all you need are a spoolie and an average bar of soap.


Soap for brows


How do we know it’s effective? Brow makeup favourite Anastasia Beverly Hills hopped on the bandwagon and demoed for us an easy DIY tutorial for soap brows on their Instagram page. Basically, the spoolie brush must be damp enough to get some of the soap on to it, then brush up and out. Afterwards, fill in the sparse areas with a pencil or powder, and voila: nice, thick brows that stay in place, all for the cost of a humble soap bar. It almost puts our brow gel to shame. Skeptical? Watch the video below to see it in action.




Now, for those of us who have particularly sensitive skin, a typical bar of body soap just won’t cut it. For situations like these, opt for a mild facial soap in bar form. Choose clear soaps over coloured ones if you’re afraid of leaving tell-tale traces of wax on your arches. Natural soaps may also be more favourable especially if you’d rather skip the harsh, artificial ingredients. It’s not all perfect, though. Soap brows may not work as well under hot and extremely humid temperatures. You can rely on your brow gel for that. If you’re interested in giving this popular trend a try, you can check out our product suggestions below.
