Courtney Min a.k.a. @courfney_makeup is a South Korean born, New York City based student and Instagram makeup-artist extraordinaire. We got to know the young artist including her top five beauty products, skin care ritual and the best beauty accounts on Instagram right now.

Hey Courtney, how did you first get into makeup?

The first time I touched makeup was when I was twelve, but my mom didn’t let me wear makeup then. It was in my junior year of high school when I actually started to get into it more.

Where do you get your inspiration for all your looks?

Music, modern art, and my own imagination.

What are your top 5 beauty products?

1. Glossier cloud paints
2. Charlotte Tilbury light wonder foundation
3. Milk Makeup face gloss
4. Glossier stretch concealer
5. Dear Dahlia eyeshadow duo :)

“I don’t feel like myself when I’m not wearing blush”

What’s one beauty product you couldn’t live without?

Definitely blush. I don’t feel like myself when I’m not wearing it.

What’s your skin care routine?

I don’t really have a set routine because my skin condition fluctuates a lot, but I always use a toner, serum and moisturizer.

“I always use a toner, serum and moisturizer.”

What’s your fav beauty tip?

Keep it simple yet fun :)

Do you have any beauty icons? If so, who are they?

Probably Jane Birkin.

If money was no object, what fashion or beauty items would you buy?

The new palette from Pat Mcgrath. It looks heavenly but I’m too broke unfortunately.

Who would you love to collaborate with and why?

Definitely @coolgirlswearmugler on IG. We both love doing the whole glossy eye look and she’s just a sweet person in general.

What song have you got on repeat?

Cherry by Rina Sawayama!

Who should we follow on Instagram?

@coolgirlswearmugler but you probably follow her already because she’s a queen. Also @honeydon.t and @m0nkos

“[Check out] @coolgirls wearmugler but you probably follow her already because she’s a queen.”
