K-pop idol Wonyoung may only be 20 years old but that doesn’t mean we’re not clamouring to find out what fuels her incandescent beauty and glass-like skin.
In 2018, the charismatic Wonyoung earned first place in Mnet’s girl group survival reality television show Produce 48 where she was in project girl group Iz*One. Today, she’s a proud and dazzling member of K-pop girl group IVE, impressing her fans with her euphonious voice and skilled choreography.
Other than being a fashion icon who sports bold and edgy outfits to express her individuality, Wonyoung is also well on her way to becoming a beauty queen worthy of worshipping.
Gear up, because we’ve got all the beauty tips of rising K-pop “It Girl” Wonyoung and it’s not because her name has “young” in it. A
ll jokes aside, if you’re a fan of Innisfree too, you’re going to love these tips by the newly appointed Innisfree ambassador too!
She loves serums!
Gone are the days of only using serum after your toner or only in the mornings and nights. It’s time to do it like Wonyoung who regularly applies it to her face throughout the day!
In a video interview with Allure, the bubbly star shared that she tries to apply serum every time she’s able to.
This is also her essential skincare tip for achieving skin that deserves the honour of being called flawless.
She also believes that it’s impertinent to keep the skin moisturised, which is what keeps your skin well-balanced and radiant.
The Innisfree serums that she uses are the Green Tea Seed Hyaluronic Acid Serum, the new Vitamin C Green Tea Enzyme Brightening Serum, and Retinol Cica Moisture Recovery Serum — each with a specific function to address skin concerns, but all with the ability to lend you even-toned, healthier skin like Wonyoung’s.
Innisfree Green Tea Seed Hyaluronic Acid Serum (RM132) and Retinol Cica Moisture Recovery Serum (RM156) are all available at Innisfree. The Innisfree Vitamin C Green Tea Enzyme Brightening Serum is available as a set for RM168 at Shopee.

She uses an all-Innisfree skincare routine
Sure, Wonyoung’s an ambassador for Innisfree, but the young star is known to only preach what she loves.
Maybe an all-Innisfree skincare routine is what makes her skin undeniably flawless, especially in IVE’s recent Kitsch MV.
To maintain her bouncy, glowing skin, she makes sure to cleanse her face well and keep it well hydrated. Wonyoung cleanses her face with an oil cleanser first before using a water-based cleanser to remove all impurities.
After her serums, she reaches for the Innisfree Cherry Blossom Glow Tone-up Cream or Jeju Cherry Blossom Jelly Cream.
Fit for daytime wear, the tone-up cream keeps the skin supple and provides a natural brightening effect. Meanwhile, the jelly cream is a great choice for a nighttime skincare routine, giving deep hydration to the skin and using cherry blossom flavonoids to repair the skin barrier overnight.
Both creams can also be paired together for a brighter and more dewy finish! Take note that the packaging for the creams may differ in various countries and some retailers may still be selling the previous tub design.
Innisfree Jeju Cherry Blossom Glow Tone-up Cream and Jeju Cherry Blossom Jelly Cream both retail for RM52 at Shopee.
She prefers using sunscreen as a tone-up base
We’re already aware of how serious she is about her skincare, so it comes as no surprise that her suncare entails hybrid products that enhances her clear, glassy skin.
Wonyoung never leaves the house without sunscreen and her top pick is Innisfree’s Mild Cica Sunscreen SPF50+ PA4+ which features a cica-infused formulation.
This new 4th generation sunscreen has a green base that covers any redness and corrects the skin tone to just the right shade for a natural skin-brightening effect without any excessive white cast.
With this trusty beauty product, Wonyoung won’t have to wear any foundation or base makeup on her off days!
She wears coloured contact lenses from Hapa Kristin

Korean idols have been wearing coloured contact lenses for decades to add a certain flair to their whole look, be it cool and edgy or soft and elegant.
A must-have for the lovely Wonyoung, the Devoted Kristin lenses from the highly popular Hapa Kristin is her go-to. She switches between grey and blue lenses for performances while keeping brown lenses for photoshoots.
Word on the street is that Wonyoung even brings along an extra set of these Hapa Kristin lenses in her bag in case she needs them.

She emulates the “no makeup” makeup look perfectly
As with many other Korean celebrities (and the whole world actually), the “no makeup” makeup look is a popular and well-loved option when it comes to everyday looks.
Wonyoung, with her glowing skin, is known to pull off a “no makeup”, bare-faced look incredibly well. She skips the mascara to maintain a “pure” look and at times she spruces it up with a little glitter or a bold cat eye.
For a more dainty effect, she piles on pink, doll-like blush and wears a clear lip gloss. Usually seen flaunting a juicy lip, Wonyoung uses a plumping lip gloss over her bare lips on casual days and uses it over a bold pink lip when she’s on stage.
She swears by Innisfree’s Plumping Lip Glow, which is lauded to make your lips look like glass beads.
It also moisturises your lips with 10 different vegetable oils and has a light, jelly texture that won’t cause any stickiness even with multiple applications.
Innisfree Plumping Lip Glow retails for about RM37.65 instead of RM39.63 at MissBeautyKorea. A discount is offered at the time of writing. Tap in to see updated price.
For fancier occasions, Wonyoung often swaps out her girl-next-door look for a more feminine and doll-like one!
Recently, the trendy cosmetic brand AMUSE announced Wonyoung as the new face of their products, and her Barbie-esque charm in the campaign photos are undeniable.
The singer looks stunning in her full glam with feminine features like rosy pink cheeks, matching eyeshadow, and fuchsia lips. The singer also took to her own Instagram page to share the news, and we can’t get enough of the looks she’s serving.
Amuse is well known for their Jel-Fit Tint and Dewy Lip Tints, though they have a range of other makeup products that are worth checking out as well.
AMUSE products are available at Sephora.my.
She drinks soy and almond milk
In the same Allure video, Wonyoung also revealed how she went from drinking soy milk to being obsessed with almond milk (to the point of ordering huge-sized almond milk).
Your skin, being the largest organ in your body, reacts to the foods you take. You may have noticed how your skin gets more inflamed or has more breakouts when you’re consuming more sugar or processed foods. In the long run, this can also result in premature ageing!
If you’re drinking coffee on a daily, why not switch to soy or almond milk? Soy has isoflavones (antioxidant compounds) which pull all the heavy lifting in diminishing wrinkles or dull skin.
We wouldn’t be surprised if soy milk is what gifts Wonyoung a more youthful look and glowing skin.
Almond milk, on the other hand, contains a rich source of antioxidant vitamin E and other flavonoids to banish free radicals while preventing wrinkles and sun damage.
Plus, it’s a low-calorie beverage, which means you’ll be able to drink a lot of it every day without causing weight gain!
She perks herself up with vitamins!
According to a video interview with W Magazine Korea, where Wonyoung shows her daily essentials in her bag, she brings out a vitamin and mineral supplement that she said is as precious as her soy milk.
For the star, taking vitamins helps make her feel energised and ready for the whole day.
She adds on about how she can’t do without vitamins, which makes us ponder if this is the secret to her positive attitude and commendable work ethic.
She snacks on pistachios
K-pop stars may be likened to goddesses, but they get peckish too! For the chirpy and multi-talented singer, pistachios are her favourite food to snack on.
Known as the “smiling pistachio”, this antioxidant-rich food has anti-ageing properties and helps in maintaining healthy skin. One could wonder if it’s also where Wonyoung got her infectious smile and ability to radiate cheerfulness.
Pistachios also have good-quality biotin to nourish the skin and hair. You’ll also experience better skin elasticity that’s free from blemishes and fine lines since the vitamin E present combats premature skin ageing.
