Unique Korean Make Up Brands in Malaysia

When you think of Korea, the first thing that probably comes to mind is its music. There’s no doubt that K-Pop has taken the world, particularly Asia, by storm, but did you know that Koreans are also notorious for their beauty products? And for good reason too!
Korean beauty revolves around makeup and skincare that is milder and for the most part, natural. When compared to Western beauty products, which place more emphasis on improving one’s features with highlight and contour methods, Korean beauty products are aimed at bringing out a person’s natural features and the optimisation of skin health.
Koreans are serious about their skin care. They know what they want – revolutionary, high-quality, gentle ingredients, pleasing packaging -  and they don’t want to pay a fortune for it. These wants and needs of its people eventually led to Korean beauty brands upping their game with innovation which has drawn the attention of beauty lovers the world over.
Here are some Korean makeup brands you should be trying out for yourself:

If you’re looking for bright, glowing skin when you put on make-up, Laneige just might be the brand for you!

One of its most popular products is the Laneige BB Cushion which is a global bestseller with one sold every 10 seconds worldwide. Check out 11street.my to try out Laneige cosmetics and experience the hydrated radiance they’re all about.
