Going for date night with the bae and not sure what makeup look to go for? Take inspo from the leading ladies of Korean dramas. After all, surely their makeup is part of the reason the male leads are attracted to them, right? Here are four looks from K-dramas you can steal from.
Park Shin Hye from Memories from the Alhambra
Go for a bright lip colour to instantly brighten up your face, keeping the rest of your makeup natural. When it comes to wearing a bright colour, it’s important to find a lippie with moisturising formula that doesn’t emphasise the lines or dry skin on your lips. More importantly, find one that can last through the date so you don’t end up with just the outline at the end of the night.
Memories from the Alhambra is available on Netflix.
Yoo In Na in Touch Your Heart
If you’re going for a glam look, complement the bold lip colour with a black eyeliner. However, don’t go too dramatic, and skip the smokey eye. The eye makeup should complement, not overpower the bold lips. Finish off with two layers of mascaras. If you must use falsies, pick the most natural-looking ones.
Touch Your Heart airs every Thursday and Friday at 9.45pm on tvN Asia, Singtel TV Channel 518 (HD) / Channel 619 (HD), StarHub TV Channel 824 (HD).
Song Hye Kyo in Encounter
Want a no-makeup finish that gives you the lit-from-within glow? Go for foundation with dewy finish like Sulwhasoo’s Sheer Lasting Gel Cushion. Use a brown eyeliner to tight-line your lash lines for a more natural finish, then finish off with a lip tint for the just-been-kissed look. We recommend using a cushion blusher for a sheer finish, so it looks like your natural flush.
Encounter is available on Viu.
Kim Yoo Jung in Clean With Passion For Now
To get this flawless finish, use the Laneige Layering Cover Cushion & Concealing Base. The cushion will set the dewy base, while the concealer covers imperfection. Then, use a matte tint in a rose petal shade. Apply a thin layer, then spread out with your fingers for the blurred edges effect. Then, apply a small amount just to the centre of your lips and spread out for the gradient finish.
