We can always rely on the Koreans to deliver the best in terms of beauty trends. They simply have the ability to decode the beauty secret, be it in the way they approach skincare or the way they highlight particular makeup products or techniques. In particular, Korean makeup trends have recently taken the beauty world by storm.
This has all been made possible by the cultural influence that K-pop and K-drama have had on the rest of the world. It’s important to keep it unobtrusive when using Korean makeup along with a 10-step skincare routine. Discover five Korean makeup looks that you can adopt this year by scrolling down.
This trend is also known as ‘fruit-juice’ makeup, which is rather simple and clear to achieve. The objective is to have your cheeks look as flushed as ripe fruit. The Korean fruit juice makeup gives your skin a fruity, fresh-faced radiance and is definitely the kind of makeup that will save you on days when you’re looking tired or sleep-deprived.
To create this one-of-a-kind Korean beauty look, choose a fruity blush. We’re talking about strawberries, peaches, and watermelons, among other fruits. Instead of blending it in an upward or downward manner as you typically would, just apply it directly to your cheeks.
The classic winged eyeliner look is just not popular among Koreans. They prefer softer puppy-dog-eyes over the savage cat eyes. This Korean eyeliner style makes the eyes appear more rounded, youthful, and delicate. If you’re looking for a quick eyeliner look that can be done in under 30 seconds, this is it.
The application is comparable to that of winged eyeliner. Simply draw a tiny line across your upper eyelid. When you get to the end of your lash line, instead of extending the flick upwards, draw it downwards. The length of the eyeliner should be somewhat longer than the length of your lash line.
If you’re a fan of K-dramas or K-celebs in general, you’ve probably noticed how simple Korean eye makeup is. When it comes to eyeshadow, Koreans prefer to keep it simple. For a natural Korean makeup look, they prefer delicate, neutral colours.
Choose neutral colours that are close to your natural skin tone. Avoid bright reds and greens and instead opt for matte nude eyeshadow palettes.
In the world of K-beauty, glitter makeup is quite popular. Koreans, on the other hand, use it differently. They would rather have glitter at the bottom of their eyes. This gives their eyes a naive, teary-eyed expression.
How To Create:
Apply regular black eyeliner to the outer corners of your lower lash line. Then, using a glitter eyeliner, line the inner corners of your lower lash line.
One of the most popular Korean lip makeup trends is the gradient lip. To create this look, make sure that the centre of your lips is darker than the corners, giving you a more youthful appearance overall.
Instead of applying the lip colour evenly throughout your lips, concentrate on the centre region of your lips. Then, using a lip balm, apply it to the top and bottom lips. This will result in the desired ombre look. Alternatively, dot your lips with liquid lipstick and mix it with your little finger.
