But, for Sandara Park
what does bare face even mean?
Let’s have a quiz at this moment.
For this photo, when did she take it?
If so, then how about this photo?
The correct answer will now be revealed.
The gap between the two photos,
is as much as 8 years.
Sandara Park was born in 1984, and this year she’ll be turning 33 years old. When she debuted in 2009, she was already 26 years old; it’s been 8 years since she debuted as an idol. She’s called the best “baby face” among girl groups.
☞ Are you curious about the secrets to her baby face? Found at the filming location of OnStyle’s “Get It Beauty 2017,” MC Sandara Park’s beauty honey tips as revealed in this “entertainment special.”
Let’s first take a look at Sandara Park while she’s on her way to work. On this day, she would make her first appearance at the filming site. Wearing a red tteokbokki coat, she showed her fresh visuals.
“Hello! I was selected as one of ‘Get It Beauty 2017’ new MC. Today is our first filming. I will be revealing my beauty tips as well. Go go~.” (Sandara Park)
“Sandara Park, reporting for work”
Preparations for the filming of “Get It Beauty 2017” have started in earnest. The formula ‘cosmetic maniac/addict = shade/tint maniac/addict’ was created for Sandara Park. We focused more on inner beauty.
Have you ever heard of inner beauty before? To put it simply, it’s cosmetics that one can ‘eat.’ Intake like collagen, vitamins, and others that, when taken, are good for the skin.
This interview was really fun! Woody made sure that Dara was comfortable and the general atmosphere was super relaxed.. ^^ I’m glad Dara got to show some of her language skills, and I really hoped they did the interview in English, but it’s okay! ^^ Dara sounded so cute with her limited Thai phrases, she tried so hard to speak even a bit of the language.. ❤ And oh! Sooo happy to watch her talk about “Echo” and I really hope they’ll release it soon.. ❤
Lots of love and thanks to @the2ne1hour for the English subs! ❤
Dara taught Woody how to say “Naega Jeil Jal Na Ga,” she also spoke in English, Tagalog, Korean, and Chinese! The interview was really fun, and I really hope that subs will come out soon.. ❤
Some of the things Dara said in the interview:
Thailand’s weather is good, the food here is delicious too, and I have lot of Thai fans so I like being here.
Head&Shoulders is a popular brand so I feel good to be able to represent it and it is an honor.
On stage I show a lovely image but I want to try to be pretty and sexy this time so I shake my hair a lot.
Whenever I come here to Thailand I eat Yum Woon Sen at morning till evening.
I have met his close friends but I haven’t met him. It would be nice if I get to meet him.
She is equally chill when it comes to maintaining her skin. “I just cleanse it well and put a mask every night as much as possible. I drink plenty of water…and think positive! Yan palaging important,” she shares.
The secret to her youthful, dewy skin? “Naglalagay ako ng mask every night para next day glowing yung skin. Actually I can use any brand, kasi lahat naman pare-pareho yung result. Ngayon meron mga mask pack na animal print so I like those,” Dara gushes. As for makeup, she can’t currently live without three things. “Since summer na rin sa Korea, important yung sunblock. Ngayon there’s sunblock na colored, parang foundation! And blush, para laging fresh and kunwari cute haha. And then lipstick…gusto ko yung mga bright colors like orange and pink para I look alive.” She has an endearing sense of humor.
Famous for her adventurous and colorful hairstyles, Dara knows how to take care of her hair. She confesses to using weaves to lessen the damage and going to salons for regular treatments and scalp massages. For everyday care though, she loves Head & Shoulders’ new Tri-Action Formula. “It helps because I change my hairstyle a lot so parang laging damaged. I massage my scalp with the shampoo, and it helps me protect, moisturize, and cleanse everyday,” says Dara of her new beauty secret.
But what is it, really? The Tri-Action Formula is Head & Shoulders’ biggest innovation in the last decade. According to Saint Anthony Tiu, Senior Scientific Communications Manager for Hair Care, P&G Asia Pacific, years of research led to a breakthrough that allowed them to micronize their active ingredient for fighting dandruff. Eight times tinier, their patented pyrithione zinc or ZPT is now able to penetrate the scalp much more thoroughly to combat the cause and symptoms of dandruff.
They have also improved the formula of Head & Shoulders shampoos to act more like skincare instead of just fighting dandruff. Now, it promises to cleanse better with richer suds, protect the scalp from bacterial infection and damage, and moisturize our hair at the same time.
I am personally excited by this news. I LOVE Head & Shoulders shampoo because it’s one of the very, very few shampoos that doesn’t break me out (I’m super sensitive to hair products). It’s the only one that can keep away my dandruff too! I suffered from so many breakouts and a horrible wounded scalp in my early 20s (I shiver to remember) until I “discovered” Head & Shoulders for myself. I like to tell people that while it’s not glamorous, Head & Shoulders is a staple in my bath shelf. It just works so well for me, especially since it gives my fine hair volume too.
“I love the fact that my work allows me to change my hairstyle almost by the hour! But that also means that my hair needs to be in tip top condition at all times. I’m super excited to be joining the Head & Shoulders family! It’s my complete hair and scalp care solution, allowing me to rock the stage with confidence,” says Sandara Park. She adds, “See you in Manila soon!”
We can’t wait to see what she’s working on as she gave us a hint during the interview. 😉 It was lovely meeting her, and it’s all thanks to the P&G team! If you’re curious, I also posted personal stuff about my Bangkok trip here.
Tell me, what would you like to ask or say to Sandara if you ever see her in person? What’s your favorite Head & Shoulders variant?

Dara is in the cover of the Philippines Fashion Magazine, MEGA for their May 2016 issue! ❤
She looks a bit different here, since her make-up and hairstyle are a touch different from what we’re used to, but hey, still looking great! ❤
The magazine is out for sale already, that’s why we posted. ^^ Please do get a copy!
I love her interview.. Her humility just shines through, and I can totally imagine the scenario with her driver telling her it’s okay to go down and take a picture because she was amazed by the huge billboard with her face on it for Penshoppe.. ^_^ I love her passion for her craft, and how she molded herself into a stronger person after everything that she went through.. ^^ Enjoy!
Check out their article and interview after the cut!

Last Thursday, Moonshot (one of Korea’s hottest beauty brands) launched its new Microfit and Moonflash Cushions (both SPF50+) at Sephora, Mid Valley. And guess what? Sandara Park was there! The crowd went absolutely wild!
Sandara, also known as Dara, is a South Korean singer, dancer, actor, host and is a member of the South Korean girl group 2NE1. Dara is the fresh face of the Moonflash Cushion while Kwon Ji-Yong (better known as G-Dragon from South Korean group Big Bang) is the face of the Microfit Cushion. Unfortunately, G-Dragon wasn’t able to make it for the launch as he was tied up with prior arrangements.
When Dara arrived, she was wearing a sweet frilly white dress and looked even more radiant in person. Her fans cheered and waved their hand-made posters as she took her seat on the stage for her press interview.
1. What does beauty mean to you?
Everyone has different personalities and that really makes everyone beautiful in his/her own way.
2. You’ve always been known to look fresh and radiant at the airport. What is your secret to looking great when traveling?
Moisturizing is very important, especially on the plane as the air is very dry. I like to use facial mists with oil, moisturizing creams and masks to keep my face hydrated.
3. If you only had about 10 – 15 minutes to get ready in a day, what makeup products would you use?
I would use only foundation, concealer and lip gloss. For a quick pop of colour, I like to use cream tints for both lips and cheeks.
4. What kind of makeup do you prefer?
My makeup artist says I look best with natural makeup, and I also prefer a more natural look when I’m not working.
5. What was one of your earliest experiences with makeup?
The first time I used makeup was for prom. I used my mother’s makeup and I looked so terrible and ugly! *laughs*.
6. Do you prefer strong statement looks for your music videos?
Yes, I prefer experimenting with different styles of makeup to suit the theme of the videos. I like to see different sides of Sandara Park.
7. Being a beauty icon, what is your daily beauty routine like?
I know it sounds really boring but I like to drink a lot of water, sleep as much as possible and work out at the gym.
8. How do you stay fit and energetic?
I always try to think positive and I get my energy from my fans! (To her fans) Thank you! Thank you for coming and for always being there for me.
And thank you for coming to visit dear Dara!
Moonflash and Microfit Cushions are now available at all Sephora outlets. The former has a milky pink texture and can be used as a highlighter to illuminate the skin while the latter is a light foundation that brightens the overall complexion.
And have you checked out their Jelly Pot eyeshadows and Cream Paints for lips and cheeks yet? I’m completely obsessed with them! Their textures and colours are pretty darn amazing if I do say so myself.

Another interesting read! ❤ I like how casual this interview seemed and how the article was written. ^^ I can just imagine the easy banter Dara and GD have! YG Family seems really close.. XD I remember the way Taeyang teased Dara too, even Seungri and Dae tease her a lot.. XD
2NE1’s Dara says she can’t put on eyeliner by herself.
SINGAPORE – For someone who always looks so put-together, 2NE1’s Sandara Park admitted that she is, like most regular girls, actually hopeless at applying her own eyeliner.
Affectionately known as “Dara”, the 31-year-old was in Singapore for the launch of cosmetics brand moonshot’s new products, the Microfit Cushion and the Moonflash Cushion, both available at Sephora. The moonshot brand is from YG Plus, the lifestyle subsidiary of YG Entertainment, which is the label to which Park is signed.
Although she loves makeup as much as the next girl, Park said, “Actually, I’m not good at using it. I don’t know how to put eyeliner on by myself,” she said. “Once, I drew my eyeliner on by myself, and when my friend saw me, she was really shocked. She said, ‘You look really scary!’ It was really big and scary.”
She added: “That’s why I use the cushion, and lip gloss. I’m really into the Moonflash cushion right now because it makes your skin look so much fresher, and it’s really easy to use. I think skin is the most important thing when you do your make-up, because if you have nice skin, you will look good in any make-up.”
What if she had to choose between giving up make-up and giving up chocolate? “It’s really hard to pick. But maybe I’m going to give up chocolate – for now,” she sighed.
While Park is the face of the Moonflash Cushion, which is used as a brightening base or highlighter, fellow YG label mate G-Dragon is the face of the Microfit Cushion, which is recommended for touch-ups. We put it to Park: Between her and G-Dragon, who’s prettier?
“Ah, it’s really hard!” she giggled. “He’s also baby-faced. And he’s really cute. But maybe it’s me, because I’m a girl and he’s a boy. I’m pretty; he’s handsome.”
And no, they don’t fight over who has better skin. But, she revealed, “He’s always teasing me about anything and everything. He’s really naughty. And he’s really funny.”
We’re not sure if they tease each other about their eyeliner, but that may be a moot point because Park predicts the next makeup trend will be the barely-there look. “I think nude make-up is really nice, and I think that will be the trend for this year – very natural make-up that looks like you don’t have make-up on,” she said.
And, with her new Moonflash Cushion, “everybody can look like me,” she laughed.
Even while eating chilli or pepper crab.
The Microfit Cushion and the Moonflash Cushion by moonshot are available at Sephora.

Must-read! They had some great, out-of-the-box questions for Dara and I really appreciated how they gave us a glimpse into her mind. I’m glad they didn’t stick to the usual beauty questions, despite what the title might suggest. ^^
Last week, international K-pop sensation Sandara Park (Dara, for short) was in town for the launch of Moonshot’s new products: the Microfit Cushion and the Moonflash Cushion. We sat down with the brand’s recently appointed ambassador to talk beauty must-haves, skincare secrets, and Instagram filters.
What’s the best beauty secret you’ve ever learnt?
I found out that I can use the Moonflash Cushion not only as a highlighter but also as a make-up primer before using make-up.
What’s one make-up product you cannot live without?
I’m using Moonshot’s UV bouncer everyday before applying my make up. Its like a sun block and at a same time, a make up primer – it’ll make you look even prettier.
How do you maintain your perfect skin?
Drink a lot of water and sleep a lot – that is really important. And positive energy!
What’s your favourite Instagram filter?
What’s your favourite way to relax?
I love being a tourist – I love trying out new things, new food and new places.
Name the place(s) in Singapore that you would love to see.
I want to go to Gardens By The Bay, Clarke Quay and The Merlion Statue.
Where in the world would you want to visit the most?
If you could meet anyone, who would it be?
I want to meet my high school crush because I miss myself; the young innocent Dara.
