THE NEW K-BEAUTY LOOK: PRETTY-COOL

Female (Singapore) - - CONTENTS - – SK

Not quite the dewy porce­lain skin and Bambi eyes va­ri­ety that you’re used to.

Recre­ate the barely there blush look seen at The Cen­taur with (from left) Hera Flash Blusher in Co­ral, $55, Hera x Blind­ness Cell Essence, $99, and Hera UV Mist Cush­ion, $68.

Korean beauty is still largely as­so­ci­ated with dewy porce­lain skin, Bambi eyes, and kiss­able lips and cheeks (aka tele­genic girl-next-door looks – or BTS). Go­ing by what we saw at Seoul Fash­ion Week (SFW) S/S ’19 though, a re­bel­lion could be brew­ing. At brands from The Cen­taur to Ro­manchic, the typ­i­cal pink­ish, fresh-faced blush is now barely there (see op­po­site). Ja­son Lee, chief makeup artist at Hera (the main beauty spon­sor of SFW) de­scribes it as a paler, toned-down look that uses blush not to add colour, but to lightly con­tour and im­part a glow. And while eye­liner has al­ways been used to make peep­ers pop, it was un­ex­pect­edly seen along the en­tire wa­ter­line at Ku­mann Yoo Hye Jin. Com­ple­mented by tawny smudged eye­shadow, the look is rock ’n’ roll yet so­phis­ti­cated. K-rock the new K-beauty? We re­peat the BTS an­them: Dope.
