1. Primer + Foundation + Shading
The first step in getting I.O.I’s signature youthful look is a solid foundation. SeJeong started off by demonstrating how to apply the makeup sticks with the help of Mina as her model. She first glides on the primer in bold streaks across Mina’s cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. Then with her hands, she gently spread the primer throughout the face, while giving it the occasional tap for better absorption. Next, she repeated the same method with the foundation stick, being careful to evenly spread the color around. Lastly, she contoured Mina’s face to give it a natural 3D look. She crossed the shading stick across mina’s chin line, the sides of her nose and across her hairline.
Below, we’ve collected the links to where you can find Etude House’s Play 101 primer, foundation and shading sticks that SeJeong was using. If you’re looking for something a little different, we suggest the latest popular K-Cosmetic line’s I’M MEME’s Mr. Honey Stick and Multi-Sticks. Not sure if you’re into it? Give it a try with Tony Moly’s primer and makeup stick lines; they offer the similar easy-to-use features, but with more affordable prices!
2. Pink Highlighter
The next important step in getting I.O.I’s glowing makeup look is a pink highlighter stick! SeJeong used Etude House’s Play 101 Highlight stick to make Mina’s face pop in all the right places. She gently applied a stroke underneath Mina’s eyes and on her T-zone (forehead and nose bridge). Then with the same gentle motions, she spread the highlighter evenly onto Mina’s skin to make her skin radiantly beautiful!

Lastly, and most importantly, you gotta get bright pink cheeks to complete your I.O.I makeup! SeJeong emphasized how pink cheeks make you look younger and more youthful, a signature key to all I.O.I girls! To make things fun and lovely, SeJeong applied the Etude House Play 101 Blush Stick in shapes of hearts right on Mina’s cheeks. She said this method is cute as it is efficient! She then once again gently glided her finger tips to give Mina an even blush. An extra tip from SeJeong was applying the stick gently on your lips to give it a natural pink look. Pink lips are what I.O.I girls are all about, right?
