Kim Ji Won in The Heirs
The girl we love to hate - minus her hot pink pout.

She plays Rachel Yoo— professional ice queen, heiress to RS International and fiancée to Kim Tan. She's the girl we love to hate. But her popsicle pink lips and chic blunt mane is something we're a little envious about, despite her prickly personality.


In the past few years, a lot of the leading characters in our favorite dramas have been wearing the hot pink lips look. This ignited a popular makeup trend in Korea—almost every girl in Seoul is wearing the bright hue no matter the season. Read our tips on how to go hot pink this winter and vote on your favorite Korean actress that wore the look!

Hot pink lips are perfect when creating a flirty and playful look and can brighten your face instantly. Best of all, it flatters all complexions. If you are ready to go hot pink, here are a few tips you should follow:

1. Avoid heavy eye makeup and blush. The hot pink is the focal point!

2. Make sure your lips are properly exfoliated prior to application. The bright shade has a tendency to accentuate dry and flaky lips.

3. Blend the color on your lips with your fingers for a more natural, flushed pout. Skip the lip liner, it can make you look less youthful.

4. Add a sheer gloss in the center of your lips to create the illusion of fuller lips.

To get the look, check out two popular pink lippies from Missha and Etude House.
