Despite being a busy actress, Park Min-Young has a good skin-prep routine when it comes to her dewy skin. Her beauty secret? Just be a hard-core masker. When filming What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim, Park Min-Young has to wear makeup for 20 to 24 hours, which makes her face dry up easily. That’s why she reveals that she puts on 2 to 3 masks a day just to make sure her dewy skin is well-rested and replenished BEFORE having her makeup done.

Step 2: Primer

Flawless base makeup is practically the basic requirement for dewy skin look. Start setting your face with a good primer to conceal your pores and smooth out your skin. This is why, when you watch What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim, Park Min-Young’s luminous complexion always looks on-point even in the close-up scenes. Simply choose a primer that moisturizes your skin with a refreshing texture that doesn’t mattify your face.
