When it comes to skincare goals, flawless skin goals, and beauty goals, Koreans are popular with Filipinos. Have you seen them take a ‘jwu selfie?’ How about an ‘after-gym selfie?’ And because of that some Filipinos would say, “Haggard na pero ang ganda pa rin.” or “Wow! Sana all!” However, one of the Filipino struggles concerning beauty and skincare is that most of the Korean products were meant to cater to fit fair-skinned individuals. “Paano naman kaming mga moreno/morena?”

Candy Magazine released an article on how to pull off Korean-Inspired Makeup Look for Filipino morenos and morenas. When it comes to beauty, K-beauty trends have had a massive following not just around Asia but even in the West. In the Philippines, Korean makeup and skincare products are also quite popular. K-beauty for morenas, however, is a bit tricky to try. All you really need to do is to keep in mind the basic principles behind these K-beauty trends and look for an alternative that will easily work for your morena skin.

Here are some ways morenas can experiment with different K-beauty trends:

Coral hues

Coral colored makeup, particularly for blushes and eyeshadows, has been a big trend in the K-beauty scene primarily for the subtle pop of color this shade adds to the face. That slightly warmer pinkish shade is a great way to add some life to your look, especially if you're going for the trademark polished glass skin Koreans love.

Glossy lips
‘Glossy’ and ‘dewy’ are two words we’d often associate with K-beauty because with dewy skin comes glossy, healthy-looking lips. Most of the glossy K-beauty looks come in muted pink shades to match fair skin tones, but morenas can pull off the same glossy result with shades like mauve-pink.

Glass skin
Glass skin is probably one of the biggest K-beauty trends to ever invade the beauty scene because we love a good dewy base. The trend definitely helped make the pawis look sound more chic than it actually is. To get the look, beauty junkies often rely on BB cushions because the creamy consistency helps add to the reflective look we’re aiming for.

Full, dark lips

A relatively new trend you’ll see on your favorite Hallyu stars’ beauty looks would be full, dark lips which sounds completely different from the two-toned, gradient lip look we’ve all come to love.

Undereye blush
Another popular K-beauty trend is the "drunk blush" look that gives off either the illusion of booze-induced rosy cheeks or kakabilad-ko-lang-sa-araw look. The trick is to apply your blush just below your eyebags and even across your nose instead of along your cheek bones, like how we normally do.
