Warning: spoilers ahead!

If you’ve already seen this K-Drama, you know that there are a lot of moments that made Yu Ri cry. Remember when Yu Ri got to hug her daughter for the first time, when all Yu Ri wanted was for Gang-hwa not to cry again; and when Seo Woo said “Bye, mom” to her in the last episode? These are just a few of the most emotional and heartbreaking moments in the show. (Don't say we didn't warn you to stock up on tissue paper!)

That’s why in this beauty video, Ju-hee shared her top tip for making sure makeup does not smear after a crying scene. “When your base makeup has a good adhesion, it also lasts longer. It doesn’t come off easily, it doesn’t easily get ruined."  

The most important thing is the base skincare. "If you put too much skincare product on, you can’t maintain the makeup. Make sure you use enough amount of makeup and let them be absorbed into the skin,” she says.
