While some K-pop stars have to cake on heavy makeup and glitter to look good, Girls’ Generation’s Yoona is what many would call natural beauty – she looks good even when she’s not wearing any makeup.
Even in her new solo music video (she just released a duet with 10cm), she looks gorgeous with glowing skin and almost no eye makeup.
Here’s how to recreate her look without looking like you rolled out of bed.
The key to her glowing skin is, of course, a good skincare regime. You can also fake the glow by using a pearlescent makeup base to brighten your skin tone.
CHANEL Le Blanc de Chanel Multi-use Illuminating Base
Pat on BB or CC cushion or apply a lightweight liquid foundation for a dewy finish. Don’t set with powder or it will mattify the effect.
innisfree Ampoule Intense Cushion (Cover) SPF34/PA++
Blend liquid or cream highlighter to your nose bridge, T-zone, and the areas above the top of your cheekbones, towards your temples. Skip contouring because you want a clean, fresh-faced look.
Laneige Cushion Highlighter
Use a large brush to apply a hint of blush to the apples of your cheeks. Choose a light pink shade for a natural-looking finish.
ETDUE HOUSE Lovely Cookie Blusher in #6
Fill in your brows with a brow pencil or brow powder. The latter gives a softer look.
shu uemura Brow Palette
Curl your lashes, then apply false eyelashes that come in individual clumps to your lashline. Avoid thick and dramatic lashes. You can either use a coat or two of mascara, or skip it altogether.
KATE V Long Lash
Apply pink lip tint onto your puckers. A glossy finish makes you look younger, while a matte one gives a polished finish.
