We’ve loved the K-Beauty trends for a long time but what are trends if they are not translated and updated every now and then? Let us help you fine-tune some of them just a little bit so that it’s more modern and natural looking.
1. Dewy skin
This look isn’t about getting a dewy sheen across the entire face, but adding brilliance to specific parts like the cheekbones and outer corners of the eyes.
Try: Zoeva Strobe Gel in Galo, $24
2. Black eyeliner
Forget the flicks or wings. The Korean approach is to fill the water line and softly smudge out the bottom line to subtly define the eyes.
Try: Hourglass 1.5mm Mechanical gel eyeliner in Obsedian, $28
3. Ombre lips
Ombre lips have a more subtle look this season. Apply lipstick on the inner centre of lips then blend the colour out for a soft gradation.
Try: Laneige Two Tone Tint Lip Bar, $34
4. Straight brows
The straight brows are looking a lot more natural this season, with a slight curve at the end.
Try: Late Lasting Eyebrow W (LQ) in BR1, $20.50
