We’ve searched for the exact lipstick colours so you too can channel Suzy’s effortless everyday look!
Thanks to the multiple lockdowns, we’ve seen some great K-dramas this year. One of them being tvN’s ‘Start-Up’, which follows four main characters – sisters Seo Dal-Mi and Won In-Jae, and tech business founder Nam Do-San and venture capitalist Han Ji Pyeong – as they take on the challenges of launching their own companies in a programme called Sandbox. Think of it as Seoul’s version of Silicon Valley or even Google (the company). Of course there’s a love triangle involved, but that part is a bit complex to get into here, so we recommend you just watch the show.
Its main character, Seo Dal-Mi played by Bae Suzy is the lead you’ll love. She’s determined, earnest, hardworking, relatable and of course, really beautiful in that girl-next-door kinda way.
Suzy debuted onto the entertainment scene as a member of K-pop girl group, Miss A in 2010, and since then has dabbled in acting. She has starred in many notable shows, including ‘While You Were Sleeping’ in 2017 and ‘Vagabond’ in 2019.
Currently, the 26-year-old is the global beauty ambassador for Lancôme and in fact, has been with the brand since 2017 as its Korean brand ambassador. This explains why we see a lot of Lancôme moments on the show, from the foundation she uses to the lipstick she occasionally applies.
Episode 7: Burn Rate
In this scene, after defending her sister from an attack that was about to happen, Dal-Mi goes to the toilet, pulls out a lipstick from the pocket of her jeans and reapplies it while telling her sister that what she did wasn’t really that big of a deal. Here, she wear’s this creamy rose nude shade seen below.
Episode 9: Risk
While on the way to secure a big project for her company Samsan Tech, she touches up her lip colour in the car to boost her confidence. This shade she wears is this vibrant strawberry hue.
