South Koreans are not just known for their lovely dramas, but also for their unique and meticulous skin care routine. Luckily, Lee Sung Kyung, known for being a top model and actress in the highly-acclaimed “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo”, shared her go-to beauty products.
In her interview for HerWorldPlus, Lee Sung Kyung shared it would take eight steps for her to achieve the flawless look every day.
“I’m quite a stickler for cleansing and applying skincare in the ‘right’ steps, especially when time is not an issue for me,” the actress shared. “I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to discover for yourself what works for your skin. You may find that you may require fewer or more steps than me.”
She also revealed her non-negotiable beauty product saying, “A good sunscreen is absolutely essential, and I don’t leave the house without it, even on my days off.”
The actress also shared that when it comes to K-Beauty, it is a must to adhere to cosmetics rule: Play up your eyes or lips but not both!
“My go-to look is all about a brown liner and coral lip,” Sung Kyung says. “But no cat eyes, please, as I generally prefer very natural-looking peepers that will make my puckers pop.”
"I'm obsessed with the Two-Tone Lip Bar! You get two hues for the price of one [in just one swipe]. Plus, the creaminess of the formula means it can double up as a [blush] in a pinch," Sung-Kyung said.
The actress also confesses about ‘that base’.
“One universal bit of advice I’ve been given by the many makeup artists I’ve worked with is to apply your base makeup in as thin a layer as possible for a natural look,” Sung Kyung says. “Stick to hydrating formulas to prevent your makeup from caking, and blend well to avoid looking as if you’re wearing a mask.”
Might as well follow her tricks and in no time, we will look just like her (I wish!).
