Think Of A Camera Filter For Your Face In Real Life And You’ve Got The Idea Behind Korea’s Latest Trend.

Get our top tips and the best products to use for trying Korean Beauty’s blurring technique at home.

Why Blurring?

Blurring is a popular K-beauty technique that involves layering moisturisers, primers and creams to reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and acne.

It’s designed to get the skin looking naturally dewy, radiant and fresh by “blurring out” any imperfections.

Rather than contouring or piling on the makeup to cover any flaws, creating a blurred look is all about using minimal makeup – the idea is for the real skin to be visible so that rather than an oil painting you look like a more enhanced version of your natural self.

How To Blur

Skincare For Blurring

To achieve Korean beauty’s blurring technique, you’ll want to start with the right base to prep your skin. We love Jelly Ko's Dewy Glaze Toner, which brightens, hydrates and preps the skin to properly absorb your next layers of skincare.

Continue with a brightening, hydrating serum to get the complexion looking radiant. Try Tosowoong’s Propolis Sparkle Ampoule, which helps give the skin a poreless, smooth finish but is not too heavy to layer under makeup.

Complete your morning skincare with a light moisturising cream. Jelly Ko Bubble Tea Steam Cream is perfect as it contains a bevvy of skin-refining ingredients like niacindamide, hyaluronic acid, adenosine, and squalane, while also creating a smooth base for your makeup.

Makeup tricks can help perfect the look.

Makeup For Blurring

Koreans will first apply a cream to cover imperfections like pigmentation and spots to improve the look of naked skin. Heimish Artless Glow Base gives skin a radiant sheen before you even apply your foundation. Subi's Holo Dream Mask is a great option for oily skin. 

Skin79’s BB Creams are ideal for blurring acne and pigmentation.

The rest of your makeup can be applied as normal but we suggest opting for a sheer lip tint or gloss to balance your new blurred look and minimal eye-makeup to keep it fresh. A slick or mascara rather than falsies or soft, natural eyelash extensions are the perfect finish.
