Korean beauty guru and YouTube vlogger Pony shared some of her favourite make-up and skincare tips and tricks with fans in Singapore last Friday (May 13).

Famous for her tutorial videos on how to achieve the iconic make-up looks of pop stars such as Girls Generation and Taylor Swift, Pony's fans were more than excited to meet her in person at the launch of Etude House's newest outlet at Bugis Junction. 

Just under a month ago, Pony perfected Swift's signature red lip look in her transformation video. Within days, the video went viral and garnered over 7 million views and 104,000 likes. 

However, Pony shared during a question-and-answer (Q&A) session that the red lip trend is slowly dying again.

She referenced Korea's current obsession with the MLBB (My Lips But Better) shade - a shade of nude lipstick that's almost identical to your natural lip colour - as an example of how women are trying to bring back the "less is more" look. 

Pony also spilled one of her biggest beauty secrets during the Q&A session - how to get her flawless complexion.

Many probably expected to learn about a complicated beauty regime, but her answer was simply: "Hydrating face masks".

The beauty expert then went on to emphasise the importance of keeping ones' skin moisturised and nourished throughout the day, especially when living in a hot climate like Singapore's. 

"Back in Korea, I use face masks 2-3 times a week. But when I'm overseas, I use it every day. It's very important to keep your face moisturised," Pony advised. 

At the event, Pony also taught fans how to achieve two different looks with a live make-up demonstration.
