The 10 K-Pop Beauty Icons You Need to Know
I'd like to think that I don't know how I got into Korean pop music. I was a rock snob from a young age, so pop has always been simply beneath me. But the truth is that I'm a sucker for a catchy song.
Everything about the K-Pop genre is catchy: the clothes, the style, the beats, the little dances in each music video, and (thanks to a year of Korean classes) the lyrics I can almost follow along with. So, it's really not all that surprising how I, along with hundreds of thousands of other fans around the world, can talk for hours about Big Bang and shell out great deals of cash for a single concert ticket whenever the Hallyu wave heads our way.
In addition to the global rise of the country's pop music, the obsession with Korean beauty trends has surged worldwide. These days, no self-respecting skin care and makeup junkie would be caught dead without Dr. Jart+, Sulwhasoo, or Chosungah 22 in their stash. Indeed, Koreans and K-Pop stars have been killing it on the beauty front for ages, and we're only just catching up.
Need some inspiration? I've pulled 10 of the hottest K-Pop beauty icons to break down their must-copy looks for you to emulate ASAP. Prepare to be as hooked on them (and their music!) as I am!
