K-pop singer and actor Sandara Park, has been serving some class-A K-beauty looks

Post her rise to fame through a Filipino talent show (2004), Korean native Sandra Park, enjoyed a successful acting and singing career. She chose to stay in the Philippines for a few years but then came back to her home country to try her hand at K-pop.

In 2009, Park made her debut as a K-pop singer in the girl group 2NE1. And to no surprise, rose to international fame. Fans were not only left swooning over her singing chops, but also her flawless beauty.

It was only natural then that even after their group disbanded, Park maintained her K-pop status and was hired by international beauty and cosmetic brands like Etude House, Moonshot, and Clio, as their brand ambassador. 

Today, we're taking our holiday beauty inspiration from Park's looks over the years. 

Proof That Sandara Park Has Been Serving The Best Beauty Looks

Park knows how to pull off a no-makeup makeup look with poreless skin, rosy cheeks and delicate pink lips. This look can pretty much compliment any outfit and can be created for any season. The most crucial part of this look is the base. So for that poreless skin, we'd recommend using products that contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs). 

You can get the cult-favourite Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant (S$43) for oily skin and Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA (Glycolic Acid) Gel Exfoliator (S$43) for dry skin. 

2. Boy beat brows

Park naturally has thick bushy brows and she clearly loves them just as much as we do. Boy beat brows are not that tough to grow out, but they can be difficult to tame. 

If you have similar light brows but prefer them to be more bushy, we recommend the Brow Magic Brow Boost from Eyeko (S$22.50).

3. Nude blush routine

Korean makeup routine is very particular about letting that flawless skin shine through. This means they love a bit of rosy cheek, but Korean women are also suckers for a nude blush.  

As we've mentioned earlier, your skin tone plays a key role in determining the right shade. The good news is that you can never go wrong with perfect nude blushes. They look natural on any skin tone and liven up the face.

We recommend the Nars Orgasm (S$50) as well as Laneige Ideal blush duo in No.4 California Coral (S$39). 

4. Platinum locks

Your hair plays a huge role in putting your entire look together and Park is no stranger to quirky hairdos. Back in the day, she was giving us major platinum babe vibe. The beauty of the look is the sleek straight look that is not very shiny.

If you like your hair to not look too shiny as well, you can use the Hanz De Fuko's Heavymade (S$30) for that solid grip that doesn't let your hair move around too much and keeps it in place. 

5. Glass skin routine

Sandara Park is famous for her glass skin, and she clearly follows a stringent skincare regimen. After all, having a clear and clean base makes makeup glide on like a dream. 

If you want yourself some glass skin too, we recommend this simple glass skincare routine. You don't necessarily have to do the 10-step Korean skincare routine. This one will suffice if you are a busy girl on-the-go.
