9 Best Looks From Korean Stars

Here are some of the looks spotted in celeb Instagrams and latest magazine shoots:

Glossy lips

Matte lipsticks were all the rage all over Korea last season, but because they can look a bit heavy, the trend has slowly died down. Nowadays, Korean beauty brands are updating their glossy lip colors and lip stains. Stars like Lee Sung Kyung, Suzy, and Park Bo Young look more bright and youthful with glossy vivid shades.

Fresh, barely-there makeup

Go Min Si is enjoying a rise in popularity right now not only because of her great acting skills, but also because of her natural beauty that captivates viewers. The barely-there makeup is the best choice because makeup is hard to keep especially during the summer. Clean skin is the highlight of the no-makeup look. Go Min Si’s had just a bit of color with subtle touches that enhance her features.

Blunt cut with a fringe

Looking for a hairstyle change but afraid to get that drastic cut? Try Hyeri’s in-between bob cut with a light fringe. This frames her face and makes her look chic yet effortless.

Short cut

When it comes to short cuts, Go Jun Hee is definitely the queen. Unlike the common perception that you can only do a few looks with short hair, she proves this wrong by being creative with her hair styles, whether wispy, straight, wet look, or sleek. She always looks like a girl crush!

Hair color streaks

Feeling adventurous but don’t want to cut your hair? Try hair streaks! Sunmi did a shoot for Allure magazine with a hair color inspired by the Disney movie character Cruella de Vil, which is looking like summer’s hottest movie release!

A hint of fruit colors

Tired of the typical blush? Try an unexpected color! Kwon Yuri modeled for a beauty brand where her eyeshadow and blush had a subtle yellow color. This trend was seen in the past with singer Heize and another makeup brand. It’s not a new look, as it is a popular retro style of makeup, but now that it’s more subtle, it can give a fresh, unique look for you!

Another color idea is the combination of pink and corals, which gives off a Spring vibe. Take cues from BIBI’s collab with Nars Korea!

Sharp cat eye

Is all about keeping your makeup routine easy, and Han Ye Seul is the master of this quick but no-fail makeup combination: a well-defined cat eye and bold lips. She has made this her trademark look, and it can be perfect for day or night wear!
