It’s official – Get It Beauty On The Road (GIBOTR) is serving fab, Raya-ready tricks in its second season here in Malaysia!
Here’s an FYI if you’re new to the show: Get It Beauty is a sharing platform for everything K-Beauty for close to 13 years now! The tvN Asia original show scored huge during its Malaysian debut last year with Kaka Azraff co-hosting alongside beauty content creator slash makeup artist, Kim Ki-Soo and TV personality, Kim Jung-Min. This year, actress-entrepreneur Nadiyah Shahab joins Ki-Soo and Jung-Min in the show for flawless festive season tricks!
Raya in Malaysia is often hot and humid, and Ki-Soo gets that. He explains that while Koreans experience similar weather conditions (festivities or not), there are ways to ace your looks nevertheless!
Here are a few of his tips to perfecting your Raya makeup:
- Get your skin prepped right before putting on makeup. Hydrate your skin thoroughly for a minimal to no-crease finish all-day long! Ki-Soo loves the Hada Labo Premium Lotion (Light) for its airy yet moisturising feel. Lotions can be used three ways: swiped with a cotton pad, as an instant mask with cotton squares or simply dabbed on with your hands (the best way yet, cos direct absorption is in the picture)!
- Try the ‘Non-Touring’ look: it’s basically contouring but without contour-specific products! Dab slightly more compact cushion down your cheeks instead of mindfully patting it all over your face. Gently, smudge the product as you go and let it fade out. This will avoid a flat or ghostly makeup finish.
- Avoid a patchy base by using the pinky trick. Do you often find foundation sitting in between your nose slits? Bring up your pinky, slide it near the opening of your nostrils and push your nose to the side! ‘Though a bit funny-looking, this will allow you to smooth out products around the nose area in a jif.
- Put on eyeshadow Ki-Soo’s way. Instead of sweeping shades at one go, apply onto the inner corners of your eyelids first, followed by the outer corners before you join them together. This will give your eye makeup more gradient and depth, while looking natural.
Nadiyah admits that Ki-Soo has changed the way she puts on makeup. Through unique shortcuts and new found tips, she’s happy to score better makeup points this Raya! “His next-level Korean makeup skills aside, I’m proud that we agreed on one tip though. Never highlight the whole bridge of your nose. Instead, dot just a bit on the tip to accentuate it and create a bit of a bunny slope. It comes off more natural, without your nose looking twice as long.” Nadiyah is also a fan of the lotion step to hydrate the face all-day long.
For Kim Jung-Min, it’s her second time to Malaysia following her first GIBOTR season in 2018! She loves learning about the Malaysian local and beauty culture and to star in this Raya-ready version of the show. Jung-Min has yet to try fasting, but she does practice regular meditation and eating in planned portions. Her way of staying hydrated: “Avoid a salty food binges and keep everything in moderation. Also, keep your face bouncy this Ramadhan with ampoules or essences!”
