Sana’s image has transformed from being bright and innocent to chic and mature. This transformation is by the grace of subtle changes in her regular makeup routine.
Although no matter what concept she follows, she always looks stunning. She is one of the most popular members of Twice and the brand ambassador of the renowned makeup brand Espoir.
The secret to Sana’s makeup is her flawless skin. What does she do to achieve such dewy skin? We are all very curious about Sana’s beauty regime. If you are too, then read on to know more.
Sana’s Beauty Routine
Sana’s beauty routine mostly consists of products that help with making her skin firmer and healthier. She has shared her skincare routine in one of her live streams.
Wearing makeup all day makes Sana’s pores clogged. Her skin is unable to breathe. Thus, the first step in her beauty regime is cleansing. However, cleansing once when you are wearing heavy makeup might lead to residues remaining in your skin and harm it later.
Sana uses a gentle gel cleanser first to melt down the stubborn makeup and wash it away. Next, she takes some toner on her cotton pads and swipes on her skin to remove any trace of the cleanser. Her skin is now squeaky clean and ready for the next step of her skincare routine.
Dermatologists believe anti-aging treatments for your skin should start way before your 40s or 50s. It is said that the best time to start using anti-aging products is in your mid-20s.
Anti-aging products reduce fine lines, wrinkles and improve the overall appearance of your skin. Sana uses the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex. It is an anti-aging night serum that provides smoother, more radiant, and even-toned skin.
As the name suggests, revitalizing moisturizer repairs, nourishes, and rejuvenates your skin. These moisturizers work best when left on your skin overnight. They restore the moisture balance in your skin and renew skin cells. Sana uses the Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Night Intensive Restorative Creme before retiring to bed.
This creme helps in making her skin firmer and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also promotes collagen production in your skin and hydrates it overnight.
The skin around your eye area is thinner than the rest of your face. Due to this reason, the eye area is more prone to hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. Research suggests the application of retinoid eye creams would be the best precaution to this problem.
Sana does not use active ingredients in her skincare routine. However, she uses the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery for her eye area to appear brighter and hydrated. This under-eye treatment also helps in repairing the damage in your skin from UV rays, pollution, and fatigue.
Sana’s Beauty Secrets
Sana’s skin goes through a lot. Thus, apart from having a well-curated skincare routine, Sana also takes special care of her skin on her free days. What are her secrets? Let’s get into it.
Specific Face Masks For Morning And Night
Face masks, specifically sheet masks, are convenient, relaxing, and exactly what Sana’s skin needs in her busy life. Face masks can hydrate skin instantly and improve the overall appearance of skin by reducing pores and removing excess oils.
There are several face masks that target specific skin conditions. Hence, Sana uses different kinds of masks in the morning and at night to get maximum skin benefits.
She uses a hydrating mask in the morning so her skin does not get damaged from wearing heavy makeup later. At night, she applies a brightening face mask to treat her skin overnight.
To heal her skin after a week of a hectic schedule, Sana switches up her skincare routine with toner and masks.
Sana applies the COSRX Clear Regular Treatment Toner to treat any damage caused to her skin during the week. The toner is mildly acidic in nature which removes dead skin cells and helps in the promotion of healthy skin cell turnover.
Sana also includes a mask combo in her skincare routine every week. She takes some of the COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid on a cotton pad and swipes it on her face. This prepping product helps in removing impurities and blackheads from her skin. She later follows it up with the La Trouvée Black Pearl Brightening and Soothing Sheet Mask to calm her skin after the exfoliating mask.
Sana has also shared in an interview that she uses a lip scrub on her lips once or twice a week.
Lip scrubs exfoliate your lips which helps in removing dead skin cells and dry or flaky skin from your lips. It reduces hyperpigmentation and leaves your lips moisturized. Sana prefers sugar scrubs for her lips. After exfoliation, she wraps up her lip care with a moisturizing lip balm.
What’s In Sana’s Makeup Bag?
Sana’s makeup transformation from bright and cutesy to mature and chic is the result of giving attention to the details. She uses the following products for her go-to makeup looks.
Not only are cushion foundations convenient to use, they are also filled with skincare benefits. They add extra hydration to your skin with added SPF for anti-aging benefits.
Sana uses a cushion foundation for a dewy makeup base. It is lighter on her skin and has a buildable high coverage. Cushion foundations are also travel-friendly as they come in compact form.
For a natural flush to her cheeks, Sana applies a cheek tint or a cream blush. Cream blushes are heavier than cheek tints as they provide extra moisture to your skin.
Cream blushes are best used in winter. Cheek tints, meanwhile, are water-based and light on the skin. Sana uses these products depending on the condition of her skin or the desired makeup look.
During her debut and early years in the industry, Sana’s eyebrows were intentionally drawn lighter and straight for a youthful vibe. However, as the years passed, her makeup looks more mature along with her features.
The secret to this is subtle but impactful. She now draws her eyebrows with a little arch at the tail and fills them in to make them darker. She uses a brow pencil and brow gel for this purpose.
Sana’s makeup artist has shared in an interview how she has transformed Sana’s image with just a touch of eyeshadow. She said Sana uses a single neutral shade at the outer corner of her eyes to make her round-shaped eyes appear longer.
Several different colors on a narrow eyelid like Sana’s can make the eyes appear smaller. Thus, it is best to use one color on your eyelids if you have small round eyes like Sana.
Lip Tint And Lip Gloss
Sana does not have full lips which was helpful during her early days for the “innocent and fresh” image. However, for a mature concept, Sana needs plumper lips.
To achieve the illusion of bigger lips, she applies a tiny amount of lip tint above her upper lip. Lastly, she blends it in with lip gloss for the complete look.
The Bottom Line
Sana is the new muse of Espoir because of her ethereal beauty and dreamy features. Her flawless skin is the result of meticulously taking care of herself at every step to prevent any damage.
Along with good genes she has also put in a lot of hard work towards the health of her skin. Her bright aura and chic appearance make her look elegant and has captivated the hearts of men and women all over the world.
