Korean Beauty Trends to Try in 2017

This dramatic look is challenging to pull off, and requires an expert hand.


Who said you can only glow with bright highlighters?

Enter the black highlighter, which Korean make-up guru Sunny tried from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. It’s the world’s first black highlighter and was released over Halloween, but is still available here.

This is more for the adventurous bunch, as black highlighters can get a little too much if applied wrongly.

Use a light hand to apply the highlighter on the cheekbones, and it can be used for contouring as well.

If it’s still too crazy for you, mix in a light highlighter above the black to tone everything down. This takes practice. You don’t want to look like you’ve been punched.
