Ever since the Hallyu wave came crashing upon us, all eyes have been on the Korean beauty scene, with many fans wanting to emulate the looks of gorgeous celebrities. The BB Cream invasion came and took the world by storm. Korean TV show My Love From Another Star caused tubes of YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture No. 52 to fly off shelves. Such is the power of the Koreans and their influence.
In this blog post, I will be sharing my favorite Korean beauty trends of 2014.
Vivid Lip color
Cheon Song Yi is known for her natural makeup, highlighted by vivid, bright lip color. Wearing bright hues of red, pink or even orange are a self-expression of your confidence and beauty.
I’ll admit that I am not that adventurous when it comes to lip color. In fact, I seldom wear anything on my lips. But these damn Kdramas made me wanna try wearing them out more often. That’s me in Etude House’s Dear My Blooming Lips Talk in PK004.
Using base makeup to achieve natural and bright complexion like Yoona of SNSD. She is the face of Korean beauty brand, Innisfree and has been spotted in several of their ads spotting this natural look. Both BB cream and CC cream can be used to achieve such all-natural flawless complexion.
Perfect for summer, the coral blush is a refreshing change from the usual pinks often used. And they go so well with the vivid lip color trend too.
