When BLK Cosmetics brings you a new season of beauty, they bring it to you big. For summer, the Anne Curtis-approved makeup brand is serving you K-beauty inspo—five different kinds of it, to be exact.
BLK’s K-Beauty Collection features a quintuplet of exciting new releases. There’s the BB + CC Cream Stick, which combines two complexion-perfectors in one easy wand. There’s the Creamy Cheek Paint, which creates a soft, sweet, just-saw-oppa flush. There’s the Intense Color Liquid Eyeshadow, which was made for ombré eyes. There’s the All-Day Lip & Cheek Water Tint, which packs vibrant color straight from your fave KPOP music videos. And of course, there’s a new lippie: the K-Beauty All-Day Intense Matte Lipstick, which comes in three kissable shades.
As usual, BLK has the most budget-friendly prices, and these already have us head over heels for the K-Beauty Collection. (We bet your wallet will feel the same!) For minimal spend (and effort), you get a maximum glow-up, Korean-style. To prove it, check out the peachy-coral makeup look we put together using just these products and our fingertips.
STEP 1: CREATE THE PERFECT BASE
USE: BB + CC Cream Stick, P449
Glide the stick over your forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. Gently blend out the pigment until your skin looks even and luminous. Add more product over your trouble areas if needed.

STEP 2: ADD A WASH OF COLOR
USE: Creamy Cheek Paint in Peach, P349
Dot a small amount of the paint over the apples of your cheeks. A little goes a long way! Smooth the color out towards the temples until you achieve sheer coverage. Optional: For a drunk blush effect, add a tinier dot of product over the bridge of your nose and blend it towards your cheeks.

STEP 3: LIGHT UP YOUR EYES
FOR BASE, USE: Creamy Cheek Paint in Peach, P349
FOR SHIMMER, USE: Intense Color Liquid Eyeshadow in Cute, P349
For this step, we combined a beige-toned liquid shadow with the same coral-toned Cheek Paint to create a gradient effect. Just use a small dot of each pigment. Staying close to the lashline (don’t go past your crease!), blend out the colors until you achieve that soft, dreamy, anti-smoky eye.

STEP 4: SEAL IT WITH A KISS
FOR BASE, USE: K-Beauty All-Day Intense Matte Lipstick in My Love, P299
FOR TINT, USE: All-Day Lip & Cheek Water Tint, P249
What do you get when you coat your lips in muted terracotta and smudge some orange tint in the very center? A popsicle-stained look you can pair with a pout and a peace sign.
