If the latest releases from streaming platforms are anything to go by, reality dating shows have been given a new lease of life. Formulaic franchises experienced hard resets, new gimmicks are being introduced by the day, while writers’ rooms are enacting more diverse casting. It comes as no surprise, then, that Netflix was quick to expand upon their current repertoire with Single’s Inferno, which boasts all the conventional trappings of the genre with a hallyu twist.
The premise is deceptively simple: A group of ludicrously attractive people are tasked to find love while stranded on a deserted island. Scheming and shenanigans ensue; antics that soon earned several members of the cast international recognition. Such is the case for Song Ji-A, a beauty YouTuber otherwise known as Freezia. Her charms and prowess in enchanting her suitors serves as a large plot point within the series—as do her stunning make-up looks. Intrigued? Lucky for you, we’ve gathered the best beauty tips, tricks, and techniques she’s expounded on, below.
Opt for a moisturising cushion compact to conceal your pores
While a targeted skincare regimen is your best chance at eradicating blackheads, Freezia does look to cushion compacts for a quick fix. The trick, it seems, is to go for hydrating formulas as this ensures it doesn’t “flake” off throughout the day. She recommends the Clio Kill Cover Fixer Cushion in her “Makeup from Busan” vlog.

Ensure that you’re applying eyeshadow to your lower lids
“Make sure not to miss these spots underneath your eyes even when you do bare-faced makeup,” she states in her “Makeup from Busan” vlog. This allows for peepers to appear more pronounced and defined—without coming off as OTT.
A light touch is all you need when it comes to pencil eyeliner
Freezia’s immaculate eyeliner is achieved with the gentle flick of her wrist. She advises “Pringies” (her legion of fans) not to press down too hard when attempting a cat eye as the stroke might emerge pigmented and chalky.
In fact, don’t even breathe while doing your eyeliner.
An entirely valid point, of course.
Pair two complementary lip colours to score a luscious pout
The ombré lips trend is easily achieved with two distinct lipsticks that are relatively close together on the colour wheel. Freezia’s advice? Apply the lighter shade all over the lips, and the darker one on the inner portion of your pucker only. She swears by a vivid red and plum combination to make an eye-catching statement.
Always layer up with two powder blushes
Freezia is an advocate for fine, sheer formulas. To make the colours pop, she dusts the lighter hue on her cheeks before following it up with a darker shade. Her highly popular “Persimmon Makeup” video utilises this technique, where she masterfully layers the Too Cool For School By Rodin Blusher De Ginger alongside the Dior Rouge Blush in 999.
