In the quest for glass skin, youthful radiance, and the sought-after dewy finish, fine-tuning our routines can seem like a lot of work. But when you take inspiration from some of Korea’s biggest pop stars and celebrities? You’ll find that it’s much smoother and more effortless, especially if you allow yourself to be naturally drawn to ubiquitous asian beauty trends. From Blackpink’s Jennie to Descendants of the Sun’s Song Hye Kyo, we’ll tell you which K-Idol you could be based on the products they use. Right this way!

Let’s be real—who doesn’t want to look like Song Hye Kyo? As the leading lady in some of SoKo’s most popular drama series, from Full House (2004) to Descendants of the Sun (2016), it’s clear that the face of Sulwhasoo’s signature serum is one that transcends time. Perfectly fitting, considering the exact formula was designed specifically to tackle five signs of aging for that youthful and radiant effect. Whatever it is, it definitely seems like it’s working. We’ll take 5.

You don’t have to be a Blink to notice how impeccably flawless Jennie looks around the clock. (Her Instagram is solid proof of that.) But even for this YG princess, some days call for a little help when you always need to put your best face forward. Luckily enough, Hera’s Black Foundation does just the trick with their seamless 24-hour coverage. More than the naturally glowing finish, it helps capture her effortlessly cool persona whether she’s on or off-duty. Just the all-around vibe we’re after.

Recognize this adorably sweet and familiar face? K-drama veterans will know: Kim Yoo Jung is famous in Korea as one of the best child actresses of her time. (So much so, she’s dubbed as the “Nation’s Little Sister”.) And even if she’s all grown up, her skin remains to be as clear and supple as ever.

The key, she says, to keeping her dry skin in check, is Laneige’s Water Bank Hydro Essence. It deeply hydrates, keeps that moisture locked in, and leaves her face with a much healthier, more luminous glow. That, or it’s being in the presence of Park Bo Gum. You know, whichever is doable.

What can we say, Kim MinKyu might not have made the cut to become a member of X1, but his stunning visuals is a force to be reckoned with. In fact, as the first ever male model for Banila Co, we can’t say we’re the only ones who have noticed. So while we wait for the singer to make his debut, he’ll be reminding us to make sure we remove our make up with the Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm. Love us a guy who knows his priorities.

Take a good look, folks: Lalisa Manoban is a Thai angel personified. Find her on the covers of magazines, rapping away in Blackpink’s music videos, or simply sprinkled across your Instagram feed—wherever you catch her, you’re in for a visual treat. But her spotless, unblemished look isn’t completely hinged on genetics, some of the credit goes to Moonshot Cosmetics, too. Their Micro Setting Fit Cushion, for one, does a superb job at evening out skin with a lightweight finish. Pair that with SPF50 and it’s more than just coverage, it’s strong sun protection. Need we say more?
