The Top K-Beauty Trends Right Now

If you haven’t heard of K-beauty (Korean Beauty) before, you’re in for a treat. Korean beauty and skincare products are what dreams are made of. It contains high-quality formulas that aren’t just flattering but provide your skin with minerals and a healthy-looking finish. Plus, they often come in cute packages that are easy to love. K-beauty sets trends that aim to keep your skin healthy and youthful. Here are 5 K-beauty trends you should try this year from sseditorial.

K-Beauty Trend

BB cream

The basis of Korean beauty is a natural and healthy look that combines appropriate skincare and a good blemish balm. BB creams offer coverage and a healthy glow, bringing youthfulness even in the dullest skins. Unlike foundation, BB cream replenishes your skin as it’s packed with nourishing ingredients and UV protection, keeping it wrinkle-free.

Our top pick is Missha which comes in different shades appropriate for all skin types.

K-Beauty Trend

Snail based products

Snail products are another beauty trend that will give your skin that desired dewy appearance. Packed with snail mucus (naturally produced from snails), they have various skin-repairing effects. Whatever problem your skin is facing, chances are that snail-based products will come to the rescue. From fading acne scars and hyperpigmentation to moisturising and anti-aging properties, snail mucus is a must for skincare enthusiasts. You can find it in creams, mask sheets and serums, and include it in your skincare routine.

Some brands, such as Mizon, have a whole series dedicated to this ingredient – our favourite is the Snail Repair Intensive ampoule that will target spots and smoothen fine lines.

K-Beauty Trend

Mirror skin

For those of you who know of Korea as a country that values nourished skin above all, this trend won’t come as a surprise. Mirror skin is exactly what it sounds like. Skin resembles a mirror because of its reflective qualities resulting from a good skincare regimen. Yes, this look has little to do with makeup and everything to do with a healthy radiance. The key to a natural glow is cleansing and using products that moisturise and lighten the skin. While this effect can be achieved with all skin types, choosing products that suit your needs is essential. For example, if your skin is dry, you don’t want to use anything that’s too harsh and does more harm than good.

Face massage

Even though face massages have been a part of the Korean skincare routine for years, it’s a trend that regrettably didn’t stay long on the Western world’s radar. With a face massage, you can kill three birds with one stone. Firstly you can relax facial muscles. Secondly, you promote healthy skin, and lastly, it prevents wrinkles. While we’re used to anti-wrinkle creams that target the age group 30 and above, in East Asian countries, the anti-wrinkle regimen starts as early as the teenage years. The focus is on prevention, not treatment. Even if ageing isn’t your concern, it’s a great addition to your self-care routine.

K-Beauty Trend


This trend was started by a famous Korean singer Jennie from Blackpink, and we are living for it! While Korea used to favour glowy porcelain skin, in 2021, it’s all about the blush. Of course, a youthful appearance is still the most desired. Choose warm colours such as baby pink or peachy pink for an even more innocent and vibrant look. One of the brands to try is Etude House which prides itself on helping you achieve a natural-looking glow.

Pro tip: apply the blush from the corner of your eye to your cheeks.
