Love all those lip-looks from Doctor Crush, Descendants of the Sun and Legend of the Blue Sea? You’re not alone, we often lament over their perfected pouts from our office desks.
With more cult-Korean beauty brands coming across the shores, we are getting closer and closer to nailing that hallyu (k-wave) look. The reason that Korean beauty is so big over here in Singapore, is because we’re all slightly obsessed with their ability to create the illusion of a flawless face.
From their perfectly pore-free base (it’s like they have NO pores at all, how) to their ‘au naturel’ finished makeup look that offers subtle feminine charm, they seem to really know how to deliver ‘I may have woke up like this, you will never know’ final look. The devil, of course, is in the detail: their secrets are hidden in the dewy skin, straight youthful eyebrows and ombre lips.
Let us focus, for now, on my personal favourite from the above: the K-drama lip look. Think glossy soft pink lipsticks and pale cherry red lip tints, inspired by some of our favourite K-stars such as Park Shin Hye, Song Hye-Kyo and Jun Ji Hyun.
