As much as you love your matte gradient lips and neutral eyes that K-beauty is known for, it’s time for an update. And who better than Rowena Chan, Trainer at HERA Singapore, to give us the deets on the hottest K-beauty trends this season? We caught up with her at the recently-opened HERA boutique at ION Orchard.


The first standalone store in Singapore, it features the entire line of products across makeup and skincare as well as the perfume line, which is exclusively available at the boutique. It’s also the first HERA boutique to feature the new store concept that fuses urban femininity and futuristic elements to create a space that’s ideal for a Seoulista.

According to Rowena, these are the top K-beauty trends:

  1. Glossy lips
    Make place for gloss or gel lipsticks in your makeup stash because matte lips give way to a juicy pout with high shine this season.
  2. Satin eye look
    Ideal for the workplace, it can be achieved with your favourite eyeshadow, using just your fingers.   
  3. Natural, glowing skin
    Rather than achieving this trend with skincare, it’s all about using highlighter in the right places.
