Korean Makeup Artist PONY Breaks down Her 10-Step Evening Skincare Routine
Take notes for glowy skin.
Chances are you’ve come across at least one of PONY‘s viral makeup tutorials on YouTube before. Hailing from South Korea, the makeup artist is known for her transformative beauty looks and has garnered almost five million followers on Instagram. If you’re a fan, you’re probably familiar with PONY’s makeup techniques by now, but have you ever wondered what products she uses daily to achieve that flawless, glowy skin?
In a new video for Harper’s Bazaar, the beauty expert gives a comprehensive guide to her nighttime skincare must-haves. We’ve always known that having a 10-step skincare routine is quite common in Korea, but we must admit that we haven’t seen a regimen as meticulous as PONY’s.
Not only does she triple cleanse with a makeup remover, a cleansing oil and a foam cleanser, she even treats her skin with an unexpected ingredient: green tea powder. Mixing a small scoop with a sink half-full of skin-temperature water, PONY shares that the mixture is perfect for detoxing skin and tackling any sensitive blotches. After using a facial mist and moisturizing her face with a sheet mask, she goes on to seal in all the hard work with a toner and face cream — but that’s not the end.
“Before I go to bed, I always put on cuticle oil,” says PONY. “I take care of my nails and cuticles because my hands are always in my videos.” Finally, after applying a generous amount of lip balm, she’s ready for bed.
