When it comes to beauty, most people will look to Korea for the next big thing. It’s a place where BB creams, compact cushions and sheet masks all started, and is now pretty much a staple in our daily lives. The great things about K-beauty products is that they combine the perfect amount of gimmick to get us excited, then backs it up with facts to prove it right.
So after doing some research, here are some of the latest beauty trends that are said to be really huge this year.
As the name suggests, This cream is said to literally filter your face from imperfections. It works like a regular moisturiser, while blurring imperfections and making your complexion look luminous and dewy thanks to ingredients such as pearl powder or pearl extracts. I need this in my life!! I’m super lazy, so i think that by just applying this everyday could probably do the trick!
Korean actresses play a big part in starting K-trends, and this is one of them. Popularized by lead actress, Song Hye-Kyo in Descendants of the Sun, fans found out that she used a lipstick from Laneige. A two-tone lipstick that gives the Korean gradient lip look in one swipe. I have one that a friend gave to me.. and i must say.. it’s not really my style.. Haha!
We’re used to face wash in in liquid, gel or oil form, but that’s all going to change with this new trend. All you have to do is wet your face and and apply the cleanser directly onto your skin and rub it around in a circular motion. Besides cleansing your face, the application is also said to improve circulation and help brighten skin, which i think is super easy and great!
Koreans are also obsessed with making their face appear slimmer and smaller. While in the west, contouring your cheek bones are a norm, Koreans are taking contouring to different part of the face- the jawline. I’m not sure if I can apply this trend to my face, cause i don’t really have a jawline and i have a double chin, so… not quite sure if it’ll work.
