Beauty inspiration from K-pop idols

i K-Pop Store

Being a K-Pop idol means wearing a lot of makeup and looking fabulous all the time. Of course, they have makeup artists who help them look awesome during shows, photo sessions, and promotions. But what do they do on the days they are not at work? They do makeup themselves! They have obviously acquired a lot of skills from the professional makeup artists and can do the job.

So let’s decode K-pop idols’ makeup routine!

Skin care

Idols have to constantly battle skin problems. With good skin care routine, these stars overcome their skin problems and look flawless anywhere. Before putting any makeup on, they put in a lot of effort to take care of their skin. Use a three-step routine: cleanser, toner and moisturizer and only after you can apply makeup.


Your aim is porcelain-smooth glass skin. To achieve it, prepare your skin with a dewy primer, apply a cushion base all over the face, and dab a lightweight concealer only on the parts that need coverage.


When you are done with your base makeup, add some healthy glow to your face. Lightly sweep a pastel-hued blush on your cheeks. It can be powder, cream, or liquid blushes, depending on your preference. Don’t be afraid to apply more color. The K-pop idols do like more color payoff with their blushes so that they get a radiant glow!


Eye makeup is considered the focal point of the look. K-pop stars’ eye makeup is all about making eyes look younger and brighter. Use neutral and light colors: brown, coral, or pink. Don’t forget to use eyeliner to lengthen your eye shape (if you need this) and put on false lashes.


Your eyebrows should be straight and defined, they should be a little lighter than your hair color. Your helper here is a flat-shaped eyebrow pencil.


Your choice is gradient lip makeup. This trend has taken over the world. It makes your lips look fuller. Use a darker shade on the inner lips, and then use your finger to blend it outwards. A gloss and tint in one is a must-have for every K-beauty lover.

When we talk about K-beauty, we can’t forget that gone are the days when the world used to think makeup was meant only for women. It is not uncommon to see men sporting natural makeup and male K-pop idols speaking openly about their own beauty regime. And they don’t just talk about lotions and aftershave. They talk about BB creams, eyebrow pencils, lip balms, and guyliner. Many male idols use makeup as a way to stand out and create signature looks.

If you didn’t know, here are some male K-pop idols who pull off makeup better than anybody.

EXO’s Kai

He brushes red and blue brow pomades through his eyebrows to add a pop of color to his minimalist makeup.

Got7’ BamBam

Red, pink and orange eyeshadows and lip tints are what he uses to create his glam looks.

BTS’s Jimin

Jimin loves to play with the intensity of his eyeshadow, creating smokey eye makeup. He uses black, brown, or earthy hues. His lipstick color choice is usually pink.
