The umbrella term for that signature K-beauty glow with six variations on the theme—from a low-key highlight to full-on face gloss.
The most natural kind of lit-from-within glow that comes courtesy of a consistent skincare routine, hydrating on the regular, and getting plenty of sleep.
Derived from the K-beauty buzzword chok-chok (meaning bouncy and hydrated), this one literally means damp or dewy glow.
The upgrade to chok-gwang. Mul-gwang is the most covetable among Korean women for its intensely-hydrated, almost wet-looking sheen.
Like you highlighted your face with honey (or kkul in Korean) to achieve an allover hyper-glossy, mirror-like shine.
The K-beauty equivalent of a photo filter: It describes a complexion that has a velvety-smooth, poreless, and slightly blurred finish.
A halo-like effect that happens when you strategically strobe with skincare, placing hits of shine on the high points of the face (think cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, on the cupid’s bow).
