Things have been on the down-low for the actress recently, besides pictures she took on her trips, which give us a serious case of wanderlust. But, that’s probably because there have been preparations for her next project. In anticipation of that, we managed to catch Julie for a few quick beauty questions – read on for more!

A quick glance through Julie’s Instagram is enough to put anyone in awe over how great her skin is. So naturally, we had to get her routine down – and it’s as fuss-free as the cool gal herself. We asked her what her beauty routine was, and she says, “Using facial masks so my skin is hydrated”. It’s straightforward, but when you think about it, hydrated skin does do wonders.
Her holy trinity of products? Before leaving home, she has to put on a hydrating mask (of course), wear sunblock, and pop on a little concealer. You can check out her super quick makeup routine here.
Is she an avid K-beauty fan?
When it comes to K-beauty trends, Julie cheekily admits, “Yes I do read up on K-beauty, but you have to watch the show (Get It Beauty On The Road) to find out what my favourite K-beauty trend is!” ‘Till we find out, call us curious.
One thing that she does reveal, though, is her belief in the famous multi-step K-beauty skincare routine. “I do believe in the skincare routine, but don’t have the luxury of time to actually do it. Every step has its purpose in keep the skin looking good”. We couldn’t agree more, what not with the lifestyle the average Singaporean woman leads.
