The K-drama television series Descendants of the Sun has been a staggering hit not only in South Korea but in Southeast Asia as well—the Philippines included. While there’s no denying that the cute scenes between main characters Doctor Kang Mo-Yeon and Captain Yoo Si-Jin got us falling hard, we also have to admit there’s one other thing that kept us glued to our screens: Song Hye-Kyo’s radiant beauty.

The lead actress of this popular drama didn’t fail to mesmerize its viewers from the pilot episode up until the finale. Song Hye-Kyo’s fair, flawless complexion and rosy lips effortlessly stole the show and cemented her place at the top of our list of Korean beauty pegs. That brings us to one important question: how does one cop her signature no-makeup look? Lucky for you, we did our research:


On Song Hye-Kyo: 1-BB Cushion, 2-Brow Shaping Kit3-Two Tone Lip Bar in Juicy Pop, 4-Natural Eyeliner, all from Laneige (available at Robinsons Galleria and SM Aura Premier)

Being the celebrity endorser of South Korean cosmetic brand Laneige, it’s a no-brainer that the actress uses the brand's products, all while staying true to its “sparkling beauty” campaign. In fact, several scenes from the show revealed Song Hye-Kyo applying the brand’s bestselling BB Cushion and Two Tone Lip Bar, two key items to achieving her on-screen look. To finish everything off, she sports a very subtle barely-there flick on her upper lash line and then makes sure that her brow game is on point with well-groomed and softly filled-in arches.
