101 skincare products, beauty products, and makeup trends have come out of South Korea in the past few years, and we’ve loved almost all of them, so it’s no shock that the world is looking to Korean influencers to show us what looks will be the beauty hits for summer 2021. If you are interested, we have a collection of Korean beauty brands we offer here in the Philippines. Here are a few trends that’ll have you enjoying your hot girl (or boy) summer.
Glass skin is still in! We doubt the dewy flawlessness of this trend will ever go out of style. It’s simple, clean, and easy enough to touch out through the day. Make sure your skin is well moisturized with Momo Puri’s Gel Cream. Not just that, protect yourself from the sun’s rays with an excellent sunscreen like Murad’s Oil-Control Mattifier with SPF45. While we want a dewy look, we want to control the dewiness, and the mattifier allows us to do exactly that. Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer is a nice base that moisturizes, while it doesn’t add unnecessary shine, and if you’re one of the lucky ones with blemish-free skin, you could totally stop there. But for most of us, a layer of Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation Compact with SPF 25 helps us perfect the Glass Skin look. It’s also pretty easy to pop in our bags should the need arise.
Whether you choose taupe or mauve, keeping one color on your lids is the way to go. Having a tiny compact that has your shade of choice makes matching colors simple. Peep Prestige Cosmetics Bold Eyeshadow Trio in Mirage that you could layer on your eyelid. Or if you want to move away from the subtle brown tones, Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Modern Renaissance Palette contains all the mauve shades you need to frame your beautiful eyes. A nice light swipe of a glittery shade buffed all over the lid and you could call it a day, but to add a little more dimension, diffuse the lightest shade all over your eyelid, then layer another darker shade, but keep your buffing closest to the lashline. Want even more dimension? Smoke a third, darker shade along your lashline to add a sultry feel. Brush on a few layers of K-Palette 1-Day Lash Up Silky Volume Mascara and voila! Your peepers are ready for the day.
Gone are the days of overdone brows, the less you touch them the better! Just a little brush and you could walk out the door, but you could swipe on a little clear gel to set them in place. Take Full Brow’s BROGel and set your shape so that you can keep your feathered brows throughout the day. If you feel like your brows are too sparse for your liking, K-Palette’s 1-Day Tattoo Lasting Eyebrow Mascara can fix that right up. Just pick a shade that’s one shade lighter than your natural color to achieve that ‘I woke up like this’ look.
The key to this year’s Korean summer makeup trends are ease and effortlessness! Less is more, and the more comfortable you are in your own skin, the better it’ll look! So go on and be your bad self so you can shine brighter than the sun this summer!
