Korea is primarily known for its beauty industry, which is gaining global popularity. One of the most notable K-beauty trends is achieving Glass Skin. Whether it’s through skincare or makeup, having clear and glowy skin is everyone’s common goal.
A quick and easy way to achieve smooth skin is through makeup. If you’re not sure where to start, here are some of the best foundations that will help you achieve this latest beauty trend.
