Seventeen, K-pop idol Vernon, is known for his pretty striking brows. His eyebrows are so beautiful that even without makeup, they look full. Vernon’s secret is having a straight and thick eyebrow.
Korean eyebrows are natural and horizontal. Straight eyebrows make your face look more youthful. If you want to have a straight eyebrow, you need to drop your arch line by drawing it with a brow pencil and filling in delicately.
We are in love with ETUDE HOUSE Drawing Eye Brow New, which creates well-defined brows that frame your face. It comes in seven colours to fill and shape your brows as you wish. It comes with a spoolie brush for blending and shaping.
To get Vernon eyebrows to follow these simple steps:
- Always brush the eyebrows in the direction of natural growth before filling it in
- Don’t forget to draw the outline
- Use a smudge tip to select a small amount of product
- Fill in the areas on the inner corners of the brows
- Finally, brush them out
2. Apply Makeup With Your Ring Finger
According to model Jung Hoyeon, her secret for applying makeup is to do it with the ring finger. Don’t forget to wash your fingers before touching your face.
When you apply a foundation such as ETUDE HOUSE Double Lasting Foundation with your ring finger, it will blend more easily into the skin.
It is best if you avoid applying excessive foundation around the eyes, nose, and lips zones. Remember that the primary goal of the foundation is to even out your skin tone. It is best to use a concealer such as THE SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer SPF28 to cover skin imperfections.
If you prefer to use a cushion foundation, such as MEMEBOX Pony Effect Everlasting Cushion Foundation SPF50, make sure to pat the foundation on the forehead, cheeks, and chin. Then spread it out with tapping motions.
Once you finish applying your foundation make sure to brush over the face a powder such as INNISFREE No Sebum Mineral Pact to control excess oil and minimise pores.
3. Use A BB Cream
K-pop idol Min admitted that the best way to target discoloration is by using a BB cream. Most Asians have yellow and red spots on their faces, and using a lightweight BB cream is terrific for fixing skin issues.
Our favorite is MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF42, which comes in five colours. This fantastic formula is a miracle skin cream as it serves as a makeup base and sunblock with only one application.
4. Get Your Cheekbones Pop
Korean makeup is all about looking radiant, so K-pop idols such as JooE’s mix a lip lacquer with a BB cream to create a natural-looking flush on your cheeks. Our favorite lip lacquer is ETUDE HOUSE Matte Chip Lip Lacquer, which not only creates playful lips, but it is perfect for applying in your cheekbones to make them pop.
If you prefer using a blush, you can try ETUDE HOUSE Lovely Cookie Blusher, which is perfect to provide your cheek apples with a soft natural look. If you want to look younger, it is best to brush horizontally!
5. Apply Lip Balm
For actress Lee Sung Kyung it is critical to apply lip balm to hydrate lips. If you want to get plump lips, it is an excellent idea to use two different tones, a darker color at the ends, and lighter in the middle.
Lee Sun Kyung uses an eyeshadow brush to blend the corners of the lips carefully.
A perfect option is LANEIGE Two Tone Tint Lip Bar, which adds a silky to to your lips. This lip bar allows you to add bold definition to your lips with a subtle gradation.
