So I arrived in Seoul around 5am which only means one thing, this girl didn’t get much sleep. Good thing the first thing on our agenda that day was (drumroll please)…a BEAUTY MAKEOVER with Korea’s finest! Yay!!! I get to finally feel like a k-pop star. LOL.
Makeup Plus wasted no time in prettifying all of us by bringing us to HERA, a leading global K-Beauty brand which has none other than the gorgeous Jun Ji-Hyun as its endorser. Does this mean I get to look like her??? Well, not really but I get to try. That’s good enough, right? We were all asked to open our Makeup Plus apps and create our desired look for the HERA makeup artists to recreate in real life. In a jiffy, my makeup artist did his magic on me and voila, my tired, sleepless face was transformed! I really love how Korean makeup artists are able to freshen up one’s look without using too much makeup. Everything felt so light and natural.
Next stop, hair styling with Korea’s hair stylist to the stars, I-hee. She’s known as the “Star Hair Bible” in the Korean beauty industry because all the top Korean actors and actresses go to her. Needless to say, she’s a legend. I felt so honored meeting her and having her personally style my hair. Her attention to detail is impeccable. After updating my hair color and styling my hair, she still kept tweaking a few things here and there every time she saw me–clearly, a perfectionist. It was truly an awesome experience. By the end of the day, I felt like a star–far cry from how I was feeling at 5am. Trust me.
