You might’ve initially disliked her character as Oh Soo Ah in Itaewon Class, but you can’t deny that actress Kwon Nara really nailed that K-beauty glow down to an art. In the K-drama, she usually wears minimal makeup—just a flawless base, the tiniest hint of blush, and a reddish nude lip.
During her recent photoshoot with Nylon Korea, Kwon Nara spilled some of her beauty secrets.
A thin layer of foundation will make you glow.
For your base, focus foundation and concealer on problem areas only. Use thin layers to avoid getting cakey. Then get rid of excess shine by powdering your forehead and chin.
Brown eyeliner highlights the eyes without looking too harsh.
For everyday looks, ditch black eyeliner in favor of brown—it’s more forgiving and opens up your peepers while still looking natural.
Use face oil to highlight your features.
Apply a small amount of face oil to your fingertips, then lightly tap the product onto your cheekbones. Use any remaining product to hydrate your lips.
A tinted lip balm will brighten up your face.
Kwon Nara’s go-tos include Dior Lip Glow and Guerlain KissKiss Roselip, but any tinted lip balm will create a subtle, natural look.
