Flawless Beauty

Up close, South Korean actress-model Lee Sung-kyoung is everything you’d expect her to be. With her dewy, fair skin, sparkling doe eyes and rosy lips, the new Laneige global ambassador looked like a dream. At 1.74m tall, Lee, who looks set to be Korea’s next-big-thing, also towers over most women.

How does one achieve such perfection? TODAY gets the sweet-but-reserved 25-year-old star to answer eight questions (with the help of a translator) on her skincare regime and personal style while she was in town for the launch of Laneige’s new concept store at ION Orchard.

The store, which was relocated to a new spot and given a facelift, is the first and only store in the world to carry three exclusive products — the Water Science Mist, Sleeping Ball and Lip Card. It opened on Thursday last week with much fanfare.

“I’m truly excited to be the brand ambassador of Laneige, a global brand loved by many countries,” said Lee, who is currently starring in the drama Cheese In The Trap. “I’m motivated and definitely looking forward to promoting K-beauty.”

Q: What is beauty to you?

A: Beauty is not just about following trends and wearing a lot of make-up. It’s about having self-confidence, because only when you have confidence will you be able to emphasise and bring across your best features.

Q: What is the key in your make-up regime?

A: When my skin is not looking its best, I would focus more on my base make-up, such as my foundation. But if my skin is good, then I think the next most important thing are the eyebrows because they really make your face look good.

Q: What are some make-up items that you cannot leave the house without?

A: There are three things I usually carry — at least one shade of lipstick, which I can use both for my lips and my cheeks as a blusher, Laneige’s BB Cushion Pore Control because it can serve as a foundation base and help adjust my make-up, and brown eyeliner to touch-up my eyes and eyebrows.

Q: When it comes to make-up, what should a woman refrain from doing?

A: It’s a bad habit for someone to cover everything with your base make-up. It shouldn’t be too thick. You should focus more on toning, cleaning your face and making your face fairer. mermaid prom dresses Your make up should be light, though you can use concealer to cover any flaws on your face.

Q: What is your daily skincare regime?

A: I emphasise a lot on moisturising. But before that I’ll use a toner and then apply some essence as well.

Q: You lead a very busy life as an artiste. What do you do to unwind after work?

A: During my free time I like to relax alone at a cafe, or I play with my cat at home. I also like to clean my house (laughs)!

Q: What’s your personal style and who is your style inspiration?

A: I prefer a more natural plus size prom dresses style. In terms of fashion, I like something that is girly and yet mature at the same time. So, sometimes I’d pair cute accessories to make an outfit more girly, say with earrings. I don’t have a specific style inspiration to name, but usually if I’m watching a movie and I see an attractive woman, I’ll remember her and try to emulate (her look), though not in exactly the same way. I’ll add my own style into it.

Q: What’s your favourite Laneige product?

A: I especially like Laneige’s BB Cushion Pore Control. Other brands also have BB cushions, but I have personally used the one from Laneige for a long time ever since I became a fashion model, because I really like it. It’s moisturising and gives a naturally bright look.
