Hot on the heels of Mary Kay’s Asia-pa­cific grand fi­nale that gave recog­ni­tion to their top beauty con­sul­tants and mod­els (team PH got top nods), we sat down with Jung Saem Mool, one of the com­pe­ti­tion’s judges, whose ca­reer in makeup started 25 years ago, to learn about pulling off that dewy look that high­lights a nat­u­ral kind of beauty—one that’s far from stark and is lit from within. “Nat­u­ral makeup gives you more con­fi­dence,” she says, and we heartily agree.


On mois­tur­ized and primed skin, ap­ply 1 Mary Kay’s Glow­ing Skin Il­lu­mi­nat­ing Stick in Gold (P829, tel. no. 859 6222) to the un­der­eye area, the cen­ter of your chin, and above your brows. Then mix your foun­da­tion: 2 Time­wise Lu­mi­nous Wear Liq­uid Foun­da­tion (P785) or a color-cor­rect­ing cream, like the 3 CC Cream with SPF15 (P855), with the 4 Per­fect­ing Con­cealer (P530) for longer wear.

Use a bit of the 5 On the Go Pressed Pow­der (P699) to con­trol oil on the tip of your nose, chin and T-zone.


Mimic thicker brows by fill­ing in sparse ar­eas with the 6 Brow De­finer Pen­cil in Brunette (P299). Gen­tly smudge the color into the area, then brush off ex­cess prod­uct with a spoolie—no ex­ag­ger­ated arches, please!


While a per­fect cat-eye is all the rage, JSM prefers a tight line. Use the (7) Eye­liner in Deep Brown (P299) on the wa­ter­line to “nat­u­rally open up the



To sport the gra­di­ent lip trend, JSM shared two ways to work this look: For a fuller lip, use a darker shade on the outer area and a lighter hue on the inside, and blend with a cot­ton swab for a sub­tle om­bré ef­fect. But for a thin­ner pucker, do the lighter shade on the outer edges and the darker one on the inside.
