There may be K-pop groups now, but legendary Girl’s Generation (otherwise known as SNSD) always holds a special status in our heart.
Main dancer and rapper, Hyoyeon (also known as HYO), may be 33 years old this year, but she doesn’t look too different from when Girl’s Generation was still active as a group.
Curious how she transits from her 20s to her 30s with such grace, we put together a list of Hyoyeon’s best beauty tips so we can all learn from her.
“Mo makeup” eyebrow hack
If you ever manage to catch any music videos that features this star, you’ll notice that her eyebrows are constantly on fleek.
The main dancer believes that the key to any makeup look is the eyebrows. In a video with Cosmopolitan Korea, she reveals her secret to perfect brows.
This idol uses the Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow (RM119.50) in her makeup routine.
Most of us are familiar with using an eyebrow pencil for our brows so we’re fascinated that she uses a waterproof eyebrow gel that comes out of a tube instead.
She skilfully dabs the gel onto an angled brush before gliding the product in clean neat strokes to outline her brows.
Afterwards, she’s gives them more volume by swiping on the gel with a clean mascara brush.
HYO does not waste any product when she does this simple look. She scrapes off the remaining product onto a thin, stiff brush and applies it to her eyelids as an eyeliner.
We love how clean and youthful this brow method makes her look. Even though she is wearing little to no makeup, the subtlety of the brows does enough to complete this “no-makeup” look.
Big doe eyes
If Hyoyeon isn’t serving us killer moves in her music videos, she’s often seen about town with eye makeup that accentuates her big doe eyes.
Just looking at her gorgeous eyes can melt the hearts of anyone and we found out how she does it.
One of her must-haves is the Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara (RM139 for 8.5g, RM78 for 4g) and what she uses when she does her own makeup off duty.
Its Hook ‘n’ Roll brush features tiny custom-designed hooks to catch, lift, and curl her lashes. With this, she creates her iconic sexy and wide-eyed look.
16:8 intermittent fasting
This main dancer is known for her fantastic physique and apparent abs.
She has revealed that she practices the 16:8 intermittent fasting method that involves limiting her consumption of foods and calorie-containing beverages to only eight hours each day.
For the remaining 16 hours, she drinks lots of water to detox and to stay hydrated. She also uses this method to restrict herself from consuming unhealthy foods and beverages.
Aside from this fasting method, Hyoyeon also believes in keeping to a healthy diet and exercising regularly to maintain a healthy body and complexion.
Dewy skin with natural glow
Aside from the dramatic “girl boss” looks that she has sported in her solo songs like DEEP and DESSERT, the celebrity usually wears natural-looking makeup for a youthful glow.
To keep her skin glowing throughout the day, she carries a facial mist around with her to get a hydration boost when she’s on-the-go. This keeps her skin looking dewy and supple.
On top of that, she usually prefers natural makeup looks that feature neutral tones and a slight hint of pink only on her cheeks and lids.
The subtle play of colours gives her a fresh, youthful glow.
The rapper has taken to Instagram to share her love for beauty devices. The one she has shared is the LG Pra:L Intensive Multi-Care Product that helps to boost her skin elasticity.
She commented that as she gets older, she wants to focus more on improving her skin elasticity and this beauty tool has the technology to help her in this area.
Plus, it’s also convenient for her busy schedule since she can use it whenever and wherever she is without the hassle of visiting a medi-spa or salon.
Though we can’t find the exact beauty tool in Malaysia, you can try exploring the LG Pra.L Total Lift Up Care (RM2,800) which is a high-frequency thermal therapy tool that similarly help tighten and lift your skin.
