The most beautiful Korean woman, as voted by South Korean internet users, is not an idol. Neither is she Miss Korea. She is Kim Tae Hee, an actress who embodies both beauty and brains.
Recently seen in hit drama Good Doctor (Yong Pal), the 35-year-old Seoul National University graduate is the epitome of natural beauty. Regardless of whether she has makeup on, she still looks like a million bucks. It’s no wonder that Rain fell for her!
However, what sets Kim Tae Hee apart from the rest of the female celebs is that she is rarely seen in thick or dramatic makeup. Instead of opting for shimmery eyeshadows and bright-coloured lipstick, she goes for nude tones to create a bare-faced look.
Here’s how to emulate her look.
Slap on some moisturiser. Hydrated skin is key in creating the moist base.
innisfree Orchid gel cream
Mix a pea-sized amount of liquid highlighter with a lightweight liquid foundation and apply it all over your face. Alternatively, you can use a BB cushion with essence for a dewy finish.

Blend a cream blush or cheek tint onto the apples of your cheeks for a natural-looking flush.
Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain
Use a brown eyeliner to draw a line as close to the lashline as possible. Brown eyeliner gives a more natural finish compared to black.

Curl your lashes, and then apply two coats of mascara.
VDL Eye Bomb Mascara
Pick a light pink- or coral-toned lip gloss and apply on your puckers. A glossy finish makes you look more youthful than matte lippie.
