Want to cop her signature makeup look? All you have to do is follow these steps:

1. Prep the skin with the right primer

Whatever your skin concern, make sure you use a primer to help your base makeup really stick to your face. In this summer heat, you wouldn't want anything to melt!

2. Substitute foundation with something lighter

Lee Sung Kyung is flawless, but the vibe her makeup gives off is *natural*and that's the goal here. So put away that full-coverage foundation and go with something lighter. Who cares if you have a new pimple or two? Embrace it!

3. Be light-handed with your kilay

Even if you feel like your brows are too sparse, resist the urge to do Instagram brows. PLEASE. You don't even have to follow her kilay shape to a T! Just roughly fill them in to make them look thicker, and that's it!

4. Don't go too thick with the mascara

From all the photos we've seen of her, Sung Kyung always has long lashes (and we mean LONG). Use a lengthening mascara to get the same effect, but make sure it doesn't easily clump after a few coats!

5. Use a two-tone lipstick

If there's anything else she's famous for, it's her rosy cheeks and plump pink lips. To get the look, all you'll need is a two-tone lipstick in pink or red for that famous Korean gradient effect. Then, swipe it on your cheeks and blend!
