Where to have your makeup done in Seoul

Model and actress Sarah Stephens at It's Makeup in Seoul

With a cosmetic shop on every corner in Seoul, it seems odd to my Western brain that there aren’t more places to have your make up done.

Luckily, It’s Makeup is around. This large studio, located near Ehwa University metro can handle western clients and preferences. I have visited them three times, including once for an updo, and have never been disappointed.

Moisturize first!

Tips:

  1. It’s a good idea to have photos on your phone that show the look you want

  2. Bring cash. Hair and makeup is 70,000 won. If you pay by credit card, you will need to pay tax, bringing the total to 77,000 won.
