Amidst all the K-pop rookies trending here and there, we can never forget a legendary K-pop girl group like Girl’s Generation (otherwise known as SNSD).
We can’t believe Hyoyeon (also known as HYO) is already 33 years old since she doesn’t look a day over 25. And we’ve got great news to share too: the main rapper and dancer of this idol group will be making a special DJ appearance in Singapore on 18 November 2022!
The star has been in the industry for about 15 years now, so she definitely has all the experience and beauty tips to share. Keep reading to discover some of her top tips!
Simple “no makeup” look with an eyebrow hack
If you ever manage to catch any music videos that feature this star, you’ll notice that her eyebrows are constantly on fleek.
Hyoyeon believes that the key to a complete makeup look is the eyebrows. In a video with Cosmopolitan Korea, she reveals her secret to perfect brows.
This idol uses the Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow (S$43) to achieve her perfect arches.
She skilfully dabs the brow gel on an angled brush before creating clean, neat strokes to outline her brows.
Afterwards, she gives them more volume by swiping the gel on her brow hairs with a clean mascara brush.
HYO does not waste any product when she does this simple look. She scrapes off the remaining product onto a thin, stiff brush and applies it to her eyelids as an eyeliner.
We love how clean and youthful this method makes her look. Even though she is wearing little to no makeup, her brows do enough to complete this “no makeup” makeup look.
Big doe eyes
When this K-pop star isn’t serving us killer stares in her music videos, she’s often seen with makeup that accentuates her big doe eyes.
One of her must-haves is the Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara (S$47 for 8.5g, S$26 for 4g). She often does her own makeup looks on or off schedule and she has mentioned that this mascara is a staple for her.
Its Hook ‘n’ Roll brush features tiny custom-designed hooks to catch, lift, and curl her lashes.
16:8 intermittent fasting
Of all the SNSD members, this main dancer is known for her fantastic physique and abs.
She shared that she practices a 16:8 intermittent fasting method which involves limiting her consumption of foods and calorie-containing beverages to only eight hours each day.
For the remaining 16 hours, she will then supplement herself with lots of water to detox and stay hydrated. This way, she can discipline herself by restricting how often she consumes unhealthy foods and beverages.
Aside from this fasting method, Hyoyeon also believes in keeping a healthy diet and exercising regularly to maintain a fit body and glowing complexion.
Dewy and natural skin
Aside from her “girl boss” looks that she has sported in her solo songs like DEEP and DESSERT, this artist usually wears more natural-looking makeup for a youthful glow.
She often carries a facial mist around to get a hydration boost when she’s on the go. Each spritz gives her skin a dewy and supple look.
On top of that, she usually prefers natural makeup that features neutral tones and a slight hint of pink only on her cheeks and lids.
Not even K-pop legends can escape the hands of time. Despite this, Hyoyeon seems to be ageing backwards as we can barely spot any signs of ageing on her skin.
The rapper has taken to Instagram to share her love for beauty devices. The one she has shared is the LG Pra:L Intensive Multi-Care Product that helps to boost her skin elasticity.
She commented that as she gets older, she wants to focus more on improving her skin elasticity and this beauty tool has the technology to do so.
Plus, it’s also convenient for her busy schedule since she can use it whenever and wherever she is without the hassle of visiting an actual dermatologist.
Though we can’t find the exact beauty tool in Singapore, you can try exploring the LG Pra.L Total Lift Up Care (S$258) which is a high-frequency thermal therapy tool that will help tighten and lift your skin.
