If you are a makeup lover, you probably love the natural look of Pony. Fortunately, looking natural is a Korean makeup trend that you can look forward to and follow.
We have put together an easy makeup tutorial to learn how to look like your favorite K-pop idol without needing professional methods.
Here are the steps you need to follow to achieve Pony's flawless, natural look.
Step 1 Cleanse
K-beauty begins with clean skin. It is crucial to clean your face to remove dirt and sebum.
Our favorite cleanser is BANILA CO Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm, a cult favorite amongst K-beauty fans. It offers three uses for the price of one: removes makeup, cleanses the skin, and provides moisture to rejuvenate, and hydrates.
Step 2 Prepare The Skin
Pony emphasizes that the best way to achieve her light effect and lock in moisture is by using a BB cream such as MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF42.
This BB cream corrects your skin's yellowness and redness without looking like you applied anything on your face.
It is known as the "miracle skin cream" because it heals skin imperfections, serves as a makeup base, and sunblock with only one application.
Step 3 Concealer
You will probably need a concealer to hide those stubborn blemishes and dark circles to achieve a flawless complexion. It can also diminish redness and acne scars.
Concealer is the perfect tool if you want to make your cheekbones more prominent. If you're going to use a concealer as a highlighter, choose one shade lighter.
Please note that concealers are not required for a Korean natural look. If you don't have noticeable spots or blemishes, you can apply a little more BB cream to the targeted area. This way you will look more natural and less likely to cake.
Our favorite concealer is THE SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer SPF 28, a high performing high coverage concealer. It is available in 3 shades, and it is so good it can be used instead of foundation.
Step 4 Go For Thick Brows
Eyebrows frame the face, and you can notice that K-pop idols are all about the straight, thick eyebrow. A refined, thick eyebrow makes you look younger and cute. Besides, it is easy to do as all you need is an eyebrow pencil like ETUDE HOUSE Drawing Eye Brow.
The ETUDE HOUSE Drawing Eye Brow creates well-defined brows as the pencil fill and shapes your eyebrows. The formula mimics your natural eyebrow hairs, giving you a natural brow that frames your face.
Step 5 Eye Makeup
Eye makeup is key as the eyes are the central focus of the face. Pony prefers to keep colours on the eyelids to a minimum since she doesn't want to have makeup too obvious piled on. The best option is neutral and light colours, like brown, pink or coral.
You can try All About Chocolate from MEMEBOX I'm Meme Multi Cube since it is the perfect makeup kit for traveling with its complementary mix and match colours that provide the ultimate convenience on-the-go.
If you don't know which colour is the right eyeshadow, you can find colours that suit your skin tone. Try different shades of eyeshadows until you find the colours that accentuate and complement your eyes.
Step 6 Gradient Lip
Since you are going for a natural look, you need to avoid using bold lipstick. The best option is to opt for a gradient effect. To achieve this look, you need to apply BB cream around your mouth and then use a little bit of the lip lacquer on your lip center.
Our favorite option is BE101 from ETUDE HOUSE Matte Chic Lip Lacquer. This lip lacquer is thin, with oil that locks it in while moisturising.
Step 7 Blush
Finally, you need to add a healthy glow to your face. You can select powder, cream, or liquid blushers, depending on your needs.
It is best to apply them on your cheeks' apples towards your temples and blend it to look as natural as possible.
A'PIEU Juicy-Pang Water Blusher is a light blusher that is easily blendable. The watery texture leaves a sheer colour payoff with a soft, dewy finish that you love.
