Gesgep founders Son Dae-Sik and Park Tae-Yoon believe that cosmetics should work with your skin so they approach skincare as the first step in a good makeup application. Known as masters of nailing a naturally glowing complexion, the two Korean celebrity makeup artists developed Gesgep as a minimalist line of base and colour makeup alongside cleansers, toners and creams that prep skin properly so you can achieve the most flattering makeup application at home. Gesgep Bare Cream has gained cult status as an intensive moisturizer that primes your complexion for makeup while creating a serious lit-from-within glow. Layer it over top of the multi-hyphenate Bare Water, formulated with a potent mix of five plants extracts to hydrate, soothe, soften, keep oil at bay, and balance skin’s pH levels – there’s no end to how you can use this brilliant toner. When it comes to colour, flattering, sheer formulas that blend and layer easily is this duo’s MO. Less is more at Gesgep. The Lip Cottons exemplify this with their sheer, silky formulas that can be built up for more intensity without any stickiness. Try Compote for a universally-flattering antique rose hue.
