Yet, as young as Hyori always looks, netizens think the idol has aged backward even more after her recent editorial where the makeup was done by NewJeans’ makeup artist Lee Nakyum.

Hyori recently appeared on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine and showcased a youthful and innocent side to herself with a simple but impactful concept. From the outlook, the idol’s makeup was simple but seemingly allowed Hyroi’s natural beauty to shine.

Many also noticed that the light makeup and application made Hyori look even more ageless than normal. In particular, many joked that she could easily pass as a fourth-generation idol and even compared the look to NewJeans’ Minji.

Yet, the reason it has become such a huge topic was because of a previous event where Lee Hyori’s makeup was criticized. On October 6, KST, at the BURBERRY brand’s pop-up event, Hyori debuted a new makeup look and it wasn’t received that well by Korean fans.

While the harshness of the lighting tends to impact photos, seeing the new editorial had fans praising just how stunning Hyori actually is. In particular, along with sharing how young the style made her look, many even compared the veteran idol to the members of NewJeans.

  • “How could they make this person look like that last time!”
  • “She already looks young but she looks even younger.”
  • “Nakyung MUA is my bias please do make up forever please.”
  • “They don’t always have to look young. I like this natural look. Hyori unni is pretty.”
  • “The last makeup look was too much…she looks so pretty here.”
  • “Oh she gives off NewJeans’ Minji vibes with this makeup.”

As always, makeup is a huge part of being an idol and the style and application can impact someone massively. You can read more about the reactions to Hyori’s previous makeup style below.
