Fall is in full swing, but there’s still plenty of time to try out the latest K-beauty trends! There’s a lot happening in the beauty space right now, but thanks to your favorite K-pop stars you can always stay up to date. Here are some of fall’s hottest K-beauty trends – and how to wear them – as presented by your favorite stars!
While the hazy, blurred lip line has been a K-beauty mainstay for years, overlining is taking the space by storm. As shown here on aespa’s Giselle, the K-beauty version of overlining focuses most of the color on the center of the lips – leaving the corners their natural shape. With the added gloss on top, blurring the overlined lip gives the illusion of an ultra-plump pout. Making sure that the shape is perfected is the key to making this look cool and not crazy.
Makeup usually takes a darker, more smoky turn in the colder months, and Jisoo of BLACKPINK proves that this Fall/Winter season is no exception. While warm peachy looks have been popular for years, now it’s time for cool tones to have their moment. This purple-leaning eye look with a smudgy dark liner looks fantastic on Jisoo and is a great way to try out the look without going full-on gray.
The look you get when you’ve just come inside from a chilly, windy autumn day just can’t be beat, and that’s exactly what Joy’s makeup is trying to emulate. A red blush might look terrifying in the pan, but it’s the key to achieving this look. Starting at the cheekbone right under the eyes, lightly sweep the color over the cheekbone and towards the nose. Blend out the edges with a more neutral pink color to mesh it all together.
Using eyeliner to elongate the outer eye is a classic makeup trick, but did you know that the same can be done to the inner corner for some extra oomph? Dahyun has been rocking this look for a while – simply take a dark brown or black pencil liner and carefully extend the line from your top lash through the inner corner and all the way down to your bottom lash line. Just be careful not to poke your eye in the process!
While aegyosal (the little pad of fat beneath the eyes) have long been a key part of the Korean makeup style and probably always will be, lately the approach has been a little more pared-back. Where once makeup artists used to pile on shimmer and sparkle, now the aegyosal is carefully contoured and highlighted with a subtle matte or satin eyeshadow. The result is more subtle and natural-looking while still staying true to the K-beauty look.
