Manyo Factory Bifida Biome Complex Ampoule (P1,300)


Yoon Se-ri from the Netflix hit Crash Landing On You may have been stranded in a remote North Korean village, but this didn’t stop the heiress from smuggling a few skincare products from South Korea to keep in her simple routine. The anti-aging essence from Manyo, the Factory Bifida Ampoule, was highlighted in the show. It fortifies the skin barrier and visibly plumps and nourishes skin for long-lasting hydration. She reminds everyone that skincare doesn’t end in your face; use it on your neck, too!


Why not try a facial device? 

We can learn a lot from Yoon Se-ri! Once the wealthy business woman returns to her loft after being stuck in North Korea for a while, she makes a beeline for her facial massager, the VANAV UP6 Total Skincare Device. Upgrade your routine with beauty tools; in this case, the handheld beauty tool for facial therapy and 3D vibrational massages. Treat your face to a spa-like massage after applying moisturizer on your skin at night.

A bold red lipstick instantly upgrades a look

It’s no secret that Korean actresses are so influential that the products they wear on their current TV projects sell out easily. This is the case for Suzy Bae, who starred in the top Netflix series Start-Up, where she navigates life as a fresh-faced Samsan Tech CEO hopeful.

 Lancôme Bad Blood Ruby 01 ($32)


For the show, it’s been reported that her two picks from the highly pigmented Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Ruby Cream collection are Ruby Queen 02 (a deep burgundy) and Bad Blood Ruby 01 (classic red). 


Try gradient lips!

The simplistic, natural K-beauty approach to makeup materializes in gradient lips, a soft gradation of color from light to dark, with a tinted finish. Take your inspiration from Cha Eun-jae of Dr. Romantic 2. Because of her busy schedule as a second-year surgery fellow, she doesn’t have much time to do any product reapplication throughout the day. With this reality, she uses products that work as hard as she does. 


Makeup is definitely for men, too!

For antisocial Kwon Jung-rok, one of Seoul’s top attorneys in Touch Your Heart, his vanity is filled with the entire range of Boy De Chanel, the luxury house’s dedicated makeup collection for men. Upon closer inspection, you’ll see a foundation and concealer. Also a hydrating lip balm that his movie star girlfriend loves to borrow.
