1. They Choose The Right Coloured Eyebrow Powder
Getting the right eyebrow colour can really do wonders for your face.
Too light and your face might look sullen, too dark and you might look angry and harsh all the time.
Protip: Go for a shade that’s slightly lighter than your original hair colour. Alternatively, go on lightly and then work your way towards getting it darker. Then even it out with a spool.
2. They Always Wear Sunscreen
Okay, this can also apply as a skincare hack but makeup-wise, wearing sunscreen can really help you save time when you’re trying to get made up.
We already know the benefits of sunscreen. They prevent wrinkles, pigmentation and the many different signs of ageing. That said, with less skin imperfections, you’ll end up with more even coverage when applying foundation and concealer.
3. They Go Light On Eyeliner
For Korean women, it’s all about getting that natural and youthful glow.
So, instead of piling on thick black eyeliner (don’t get us wrong, we love a nice cat eye), they use brown eyeliner to make their eyes look awake.
Alternatively, soften the look further with a brush.
4. Their Lipstick Tends To Be Nude Or A Natural Colour
Once again. it’s all about getting that natural look for Korean women.
Instead of going for a bold lip, Korean women tend to choose lipstick that’s nude-coloured or just slightly pinkish to bring out the natural hue of their lips.
5. They Colour Correct
Instead of piling on many different layers of concealer, Korean women tend to focus on colour correcting to even out their skin tone.
Getting a more even skin tone creates a smooth canvas so that when they apply foundation or concealer, it doesn’t cake or look patchy.
6. They Embrace Traditional Beauty
Sometimes there really isn’t a need to buy fancy new products or get expensive creams.
Korean women love embracing their traditional beauty items (just look at the amount of products that tap onto Korea’s natural resources).
