16. Minsco

We all know most Korean beauty YouTubers have double eyelids, and for those of us who have monolids, this can pose an issue because not all of the makeup tutorials they share are applicable to us. Thankfully, there are a few Korean beauty YouTubers with monolids, and one of them is Minsco!

She mostly does makeup looks that are great for daily wear – natural and easy to do. She occasionally also shares beauty hacks for monolids, and one of our favourite videos is the one on how to use an eyelash curler and mascara to make your eyes look bigger.

Through these videos, she teaches not just the guest, but also her viewers on areas that people tend to make mistakes in, and how to correct these makeup errors. She focuses on using makeup to accentuate one’s features, which is something that we really like!

You’ll be amazed to see many of these guests looking so much better after the makeover, which just adds more credibility to Saerom Min’s skill as a professional makeup artist!
