Ever wondered how K-pop idols manage to keep their under-eye areas flawless, even amid their demanding schedules?
Despite their jam-packed lives, their makeup helps them maintain a radiant and youthful appearance, completely free from any signs of dark circles.
The key lies in a brilliant blush technique that is widely used by K-pop makeup artists, including NewJeans’ talented makeup artist. Thanks to the efforts of TikTok beauty expert Serin Kong (@serinkong), we are now on the verge of unravelling this secret as well!
Quick Under-Eye Hack to Conceal Dark Circles
Step 1: Create Your Custom Blush Corrector
Start by mixing your palest pink or coral blush, which has a potent white pigment, with your purple blush.
This blend not only cancels out any dark circles under your eyes but also creates a perfect base for a subtle and natural flush on your cheeks.
Step 2: Apply Seamlessly for a Natural Flush
Apply your personalised mixture directly beneath your eyes, but don’t halt there! Softly glide it outward along your cheekbones, flawlessly blending for a soft, effortlessly natural flush.
This method helps prevent the accumulation of colour only on your under-eye region, preventing a harsh or heavy look.
And there you go. The blush’s purple undertones and brightness will gently counteract any darkness, while the overall pink flush will give your cheeks a healthy and youthful glow!
With this simple blush hack, you can now ditch the heavy concealer and layers for a lighter, more breathable base that feels fresh and looks incredibly natural, like NewJeans’ makeup!
