Oppa Grooming Tips, According To Celebrity Makeup Artist Jake Galvez

Calling all men who love watching K-Drama, this one's for you!

We’ve come a long way when it comes to grooming. These days, the men in our lives are almost as informed as we are about the latest in skincare, hair, and everything in between. We don't blame them for wanting to look more put together, in fact—we appreciate a man who knows how to take care of himself!


The old soap-and-flannel routine that served men for generations has, in the past years, been swept away in a multistep routine of scrubs, masks, moisturizers, serums and balms. In fact, it looks like a meticulous beauty routine for men is taking over the world, as evidenced by the many Korean actors headlining beauty brand campaigns.

Case in point: all the swoon-worthy looks we can't seem to get enough of!
