Have you caught the Hallyu craze and gone crazy for everything Korean? Have you stocked up on face masks to get that enviable complexion Koreans are known for? Here’s a book that has got you covered in the beauty department so you can take your K-loving to a whole new level!

Out now from Summit Books is Unnie, You’re So Pretty: Korean-Inspired Skincare, Makeup, and Fashion Basics for Every Pinay, your all-in-one guide to K-Beauty. Filled with helpful information, handy tutorials, and product suggestions, this beauty book is perfect for every Pinay who wants to achieve that distinctly Korean brand of freshness, cuteness, and charm.


Unnie, You’re So Pretty lets you in on Koreans’ skincare secrets so you, too, can achieve that enviable flawless glow. Besides tackling the tenets of K-Beauty, it helps you determine your skin type, breaks down the famed Korean multi-step skincare routine, and schools you on the common ingredients found in Korean products.

After helping you master skincare basics, Unnie You’re So Pretty identifies the essentials of signature Korean makeup looks and offers tutorials and product suggestions so you can shine like your favorite K-pop and K-drama stars like Song Hye Kyo from Descendants of the Sun, Taeyeon from the group Girls’ Generation, Jun Ji Hyun from My Sassy Girl and My Love from the Star, and more.

Finally, Unnie You’re So Pretty lists the wardrobe and accessory must-haves you’ll need to snag Korean ladies’ classic yet trendy style, and inspires you with dreamy, quirky, and feminine style pegs you can cop for different occasions.

A book on K-Beauty wouldn’t be complete without touching on Korean culture and lifestyle, and this book does just that by walking you through the Korean spa experience, introducing you to Seoul’s shopping haunts, and of course, using the word “unnie” in the title—if “oppa” is what Korean females call older males, “unnie” is how they refer to older girls!

Unnie, You’re So Pretty was launched at the 38th Manila International Book Fair on September 13-17, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex. Copies will soon be available at P295 each in newsstands, bookstores, convenience stores, and supermarkets nationwide.
