4 K-Beauty Tricks Every Girl Should Learn from Bae Suzy in <em>Vagabond</em>

Korean drama Vagabond may have ended its run but I’m still not done obsessing over it. And you know me, I’m always catching bits and pieces of K-Beauty makeup inspiration from Korean dramas, especially from the actress, and Vagabond is no exception. This time we’ll be looking into the Vagabond actress (aka the K-Beauty queen) Bae Suzy and her K-Beauty makeup tricks throughout the Korean drama, where her cool-girl charm as a secret agent and feminine allure is what every girl hopes to achieve. Here are 4 K-Beauty tricks we should all learn from Suzy!

K-Beauty Trick #1

Flawless Base Makeup

Korean Drama <em>Vagabond</em> Bae Suzy - Flawless Base Makeup

The first K-Beauty trick I notice while watching Vagabond is Suzy’s flawless skin and base makeup. Her smooth cream skin look is basically the coveted K-drama worthy look every girl tries to recreate nowadays. So what is the K-Beauty way of doing it?

The superstar K-Beauty essential for Suzy’s flawless base makeup is a lightweight BB cream, which is a “blemish balm” cream that helps soothe and conceal with a light and natural coverage. Liquid foundation is also a good pick for those who have dry skin as it gives the skin a fresher and dewier glow like Suzy’s cream skin in Vagabond.

K-Beauty Trick #2

Bold Lips VS Rose Beige Lips

Korean Drama <em>Vagabond</em> Bae Suzy - Bold Lips VS Rose Beige Lips

Suzy’s “love affair” with bold red lips and her signature rose beige lips throughout Vagabond is another K-Beauty trick you shouldn’t miss. There’s no denying it: red lipstick is a power move, so every girl should learn how to master and style your lipstick shades according to your outfits. Suzy always wears her signature rose beige lips with her casual, everyday apparel for a more toned-down, sophisticated allure. But if you feel like dressing up for the occasion or want to look extra glamorous, rock a classic bold red lip to amp up your feminine charm like Suzy.

K-Beauty Trick #3

Natural Feathered Eyebrows

Korean Drama <em>Vagabond</em> Bae Suzy - Natural Feathered Eyebrows

Let’s talk about Suzy’s feathered brows and how natural they look here. While watching Vagabond, Suzy’s “no-makeup” makeup look always catches my eye, and the key to this look is definitely her natural feathered brows. The K-Beauty trick to nailing these naturally defined brows is to use a brow gel or brow tint to brush them gently in tiny, upward motion. Don’t use too much or darken your brows beyond your natural shade. This should keep your brows looking extra feathery all day long. Remember, a K-Beauty look is always about looking natural.

Bonus K-Beauty Tip:
Use a clean spoolie to blend and sort out your brows after applying your brow gel. This will help clear out any excess clumps or tiny residue and make your brows look more refined.

K-Beauty Trick #4

Suzy’s Silky Shiny Hair

Korean Drama <em>Vagabond</em> Bae Suzy – Daily Hair Treatment

You can’t talk about Suzy and Vagabond without mentioning her stunning curly hair. Although Suzy’s silky and shiny long locks don't look heavily styled throughout Vagabond, it’s still very likely that she (or her hair stylist) still uses a curling iron to achieve these wavy curls, which could be a bit damaging to the hair. So the K-Beauty solution is, of course, to pamper, pamper, and more pamper. Hair care is now a huge part of a K-Beauty routine (and mine too), so throw on a hair mask to make sure your hair is well replenished before styling it with heat or other chemical hair products.
