Get Your Favorite K-Drama Look With These Tips From Anne Curtis
If you have been watching popular romantic comedy series What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim and is totally envious of Kim Mi-so’s flawless complexion, or lusting over Jung Hee-joo’s cute lips in Memories of Alhambra, you are not alone.
With K-Drama taking over, it’s not hard to understand why Korean features are highly sought-after and well loved by many. Their small faces, well-defined V-shaped jaw, small lips, and dewy, fair complexion that is almost translucent and dewy, are seriously just so beautiful, we can't stop dreaming of.
Just like us, many of our favorite celebrities locally and internationally are obsessed with K-Beauty. Lady Gaga, Drew Barrymore, Emma Stone, Lucy Hale, Chrissy Teigen, and more aren't shy about their love for it. Here are some of their posts on social media:
In our country, probably one of the most vocal and enthusiastic when it comes to her love for anything Korean is actress, host and blk cosmetics’ Creative Director, Anne Curtis-Smith. She’s a fan of Korean movies, drama series, artists and beauty products. If you can remember, Anne also chose to hold her prenuptial shoot with Erwan Heussaff in South Korea, on the very site where her favorite K-drama was shot.
Last year, Anne already took her love for K-beauty to life as blk cosmetics launched their first ever limited edition K-Beauty collection. It includes a choice of easy-to-follow starter kit like a BB+CC Cream Stick, Intense Color Liquid Eye Shadow, All-Day Lip and Cheek Water Tiny, Creamy Cheek Paint and All-day Intense Matte Lipstick.
This year, we weren’t surprised when Anne and blk announced that they will be launching another K-Beauty collection. But this time, it’s a beauty line that will live out our dream of starring in a K-Drama! It consists the dreamiest and most romantic hues perfect if you want to achieve the look of your favorite Korean actresses.
Last April 2, we attended blk's private party, where they launch the newest K-Drama Edition. And during the launch, we spoke to Anne and she shared some tips on how to achieve a K-Drama look. “If you’re up for a K-Drama look, just keep it super light—almost unnoticeable. Use a lot of sweet and feminine shades,” she says.
In our interview, Anne also shared how their newest offering is so easy to use. “You can put on everything using your fingers, honestly. I did that in my makeup video tutorial on IG stories. Well, it just happened that I don’t have a makeup artist at that time so, I applied everything using my fingers.”
So ladies, what are you waiting for? It's now time to shop these K-Beauty must-haves!
