If it isn't obvious yet, the whole country has been bitten by the Korean bug. From K-drama obsessions to crushing hard on our favorite Korean stars, it's safe to say that the Philippines is high with Korean fever. But other than our love for Koreans actors and their shows that never fail to tug at our heartstrings, Filipinas are pretty obsessed with K-beauty, too. And who could blame them? Korean beauty focuses on enhancing one's natural beauty. Plus, their beauty products and routines are perfect for the Filipina skin, too!

Because the Philippine heat can be pretty crazy, one common dilemma of beauty girls in the country is how to achieve a shine-free face amidst the sweltering heat. And not surprisingly, K-beauty has the answer to this beauty problem a lot of girls are facing. You're in for a treat Candy Girls because this Korean beauty hack only needs two things: powder and water!


You heard it right, you only need powder and water to foolproof your makeup! Koreans call this beauty trick "jamsu" which means diving. All you have to do is go on with your usual makeup routine of putting on your foundation, or your trusty BB creams and concealer for the dark circles. Grab some loose powder, and gently pat it all over your face. Once the powder has set, get a basin, fill it with water, dive in for about thirty seconds, and pat your face dry with a face towel afterwards.
