Annyeong-haseyo, dearies! I’m sure you’ll all agree that 2017 is the year of the K-Revolution. We can never have enough of Korean food, particularly thesoju (distilled rice liquor) samgyeopsal (grilled pork belly) tandem. K-pop, K-dramas, K-fashion? They’re selling like hotcakes!

And then there’s Korean beauty, which is all about fair, flawless skin. Thankfully, all it takes is the right makeup products and a few tricks up your sleeve to achieve that dreamy, ethereal look.

Want to look like you’ve just come from eight hours of sleep? Try this no-hassle makeup routine that’s perfect for day or night. Start by using Benefit’s Triple Performing Facial Emulsion on a clean, bare face. Besides protecting your complexion from the sun’s harmful rays, it deeply moisturizes your skin. For a pop of color, dab a touch of Benefit Cha Cha Tint on your cheeks and the mid-portion of your lips, creating a gradient effect. Its mango shade gives a warm, tropical glow.

Here’s how to channel your favorite flawless, poreless Korean star. Blending beautifully on all skin types, Benefit’s POREfessional Face Primer mattifies oily skin and doesn’t clog pores. For that dewy quality, try Benefit’s Cheek Parade, a palette of the brand’s most beloved blushes and bronzers. I used Galifornia to get that coral hue shimmer and contoured with the deep Hoola hue. To finish, dot and blend Benefit’s High Beam, a light liquid face highlighter that doesn’t make you look or feel overly done.

A typical Korean’s eyes are monolid and chinky. Eyeliners are the magic wand that can transform your peepers from creaseless to doll-eyed. Benefit’s They’re Real! Push-Up Liner comes with a slanted tip for easy application. Just pattern along the lash line, drawing as closely as possible, then extend a bit for a wing upshot.
I also used Benefit’s BAD gal Waterproof Eyeliner to support the upper and lower lash lines for a tighter black lining. After that, apply Benefit’s They’re Real! Mascara to achieve a “falsie effect” on your lashes.

Complete the Korean superstar look with Benefit’s Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation, and top it off with the golden pink pearl finish of Benefit’s Girl Meets Pearl liquid luminizer.

Brushed brows are not only effortless, they lend a youthful appearance. For this look, I used Benefit’s Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil: I traced the direction of the brows to achieve a raw yet clean finish, and made small, light strokes to mimic hair and serve as sparse fillers. Benefit’s Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil helps enhance and fuse the color, and Benefit’s 24-hour Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel tames unruly strands.
Pretty is just a product away, sweethearts!
