Eye Candy : Shin Min Ah for Allure


Allure Korea marks it's 10th anniversary with 3 special covers featuring Shin Min Ah photographed by Hong Jang Hyun. I was utterly astounded and not in a good way when I learned that the Arang and My Girlfriend is a Gumiho actress is actually only the first Korean cover model in the Asian publication's history. Like really??!! I guess it saves them money to recycle US covers. Min Ah looks gorgeous with bold magenta lips which is not all that easy to pull off. This has to be one of the prettiest beauty editorials I've seen in awhile and she rocks all 3 concepts channelling sweet, playful and sultry with equal charm. Which is your favorite look? Mine is the one right below this jump.

They are all gorge! But I think the first cover is my favorite. I also like the picture where she has one eye closed. Wow can believe she is the first Korean on the cover of this book. That is pretty sad.

She's so pretty!!! Her skin looks like milk. She looks gorgeous in all three covers, but if I had to choose a favorite it would be number 3. I love the smoky eye look on her. She looks so seductive and I like that it looks a little edgier. Great photos! : )

Hi Rowena, your research skills are brilliant! thanks for setting me know about the brand, its highly unlikely that I will find it here but I will certainly look for a similar shade :)

Mary Jo @trustyourstyle said...

OMG, I just want my skin to look like hers (although I have freckles so probably not happening in this life, haha). Wow is she gorgeous in a really lovely natural way. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

She is always very pretty. I'm still confused about how a Korean magazine took 10 years to put a Korean on the cover, I get it might be a bit cheaper but it still doesn't make sense.

Ozden Ozdogan said...

She's a knock-out, but I'm with you on the 'whuuuut?' homefront. The first Korean covermodel on Allure Asia? Odd.
