Korean women adore make-up that enhances their natural beauty while being kind to their skin, and “healthy” make-up is a huge trend. BB and CC creams were first introduced in Korea, and are popular worldwide today due to their ability to hydrate while evening out skin tones and leaving a glowing complexion.
Cleansers, toners and moisturizers loved by Korean ladies are fresh, natural and soothing, and make-up is used to enhance natural beauty without looking overdone.
