What Do They Look Like Without Makeup?
Makeup is a powerful tool—it can instantly define one's public image, and it is an essential part of being a K-pop idol.
But because we are so used to seeing our favorite idols in flashy makeup, we can't help but wonder what they look like without it.
BTS are often thought of as the "defining K-pop group of our generation." Their handsomeness and charisma are known around the world. So, how do they maintain their visuals? Find out the beauty secrets of the seven members and discover why they are considered the best K-pop group (even when they're not onstage).
BTS Band Members
V is beautiful with makeup, but he looks just as beautiful without it. In fact, he is always good-looking. On stage, he usually wears contact lenses and eye makeup. He also has a mole under his eye and a beautiful nose. Occasionally, he changes his hair color from dark to blonde. But, whatever his eye or hair color is, he has glowing skin that everybody wants.
That said, our "visual king" admits that his skin becomes dry and oily. He is also concerned about his skin being tight and losing elasticity, so he is trying his best to prevent it. He recently shared that he’s still seeking the right beauty products to match his skin type, and he won’t give up until he finds them.
One time, during a V-live broadcast, he shared his bare face on camera and pointed out his pimples, which he called his "friends!" Not everyone would treat their pesky pimples as friends, but Taehyung seemed excited and happy about it, which made him look irresistibly cute!
While he's cute, he's also very confident. He is not ashamed to share the fact that he gets pimples too. Maybe we can take after V and proudly show off our pimples!
V’s Beauty Secrets
- He uses facial cream. He believes that putting a lot of cream on before going to sleep is good for his skin.
- When traveling, he uses damp cotton pads with toner to balance the moisture on his face.
- Lotion is an essential part of his routine. He puts on twice as much lotion as he needs to.
Jin, our "worldwide handsome," can have no makeup on and still look flawless! Jin’s naturally smooth skin is to die for. Even girls envy his porcelain face. His face has a sweet heart-like shape and attractive plump lips. His makeup style is not as bright and colorful as the other members. It is naturally light and is quite similar to his no-makeup look.
Jin is the oldest in the group (he even likes to crack dad jokes). Even though he's older, he takes good care of his skin, so you won't find any age lines in his smooth face. Skincare is very important to him. He really values his appearance. But, if there's anything he's worried about, it's sun exposure. When skin is exposed to sun for a long period of time, it can lead to loss of moisture, causing dry and flaky skin.
To maintain his "flower boy" image, he focuses on maintaining a bright and moisturized complexion. We can all agree that he is successful in keeping his skin radiant! So, what's his secret?
Jin's Skincare Tips
- Skin sheet masks are his favorite beauty product! After that long battle with the heat, his skin needs to re-hydrate to make up for the lost moisture, and sheet masks are his holy grail.
- He eats a very healthy diet.
- He uses sheet masks after sun exposure.
- He recommends using sheet masks when you feel like your skin is dry. It will not only moisturize your skin, it will also brighten your complexion.
Jimin's smokey eyes are his signature look. But, even without his eye shadow, he remains extraordinarily handsome. His dewy cheeks and rosy lips are incredibly beautiful. What could be the secret behind it? An expensive line of beauty creams? An expert dermatologist? Surprisingly, Jimin admitted that he uses a very simple and ordinary skincare regimen.
Although he hasn't revealed much about his skincare regimen, Jimin didn't deny the fact that he is conscious of it. Taking care of his soft and smooth skin is a form of self-care because his mind feels relaxed while removing makeup and cleansing his face. Jimin says that it's refreshing to let your pores breathe after performing concerts and shows!
Because BTS tends to travel a lot, their trips could become a hindrance to their beauty practices, especially when they are inside the plane for a long time. Trips like this could be very dehydrating to the skin, so Jimin advises drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated. Simple, isn't it? After all, drinking water has amazing benefits for our health.
- Drink lots of water to avoid dehydration. When your body lacks water, your skin becomes dry.
- As you do your cleansing routine, you will not only wash away your makeup, but you'll also clear your mind. That way, you'll feel more relaxed.
We admire the "Golden Maknae" not only for his talent, but also for his visuals. He seems so manly because of his tall and muscular build, but he still has a cute and adorable side to him. He can be kind, innocent, and playful. Sometimes, he loves teasing his BTS brothers because he likes to express his emotions in a clever way, and his older brothers find him cute. He is sexy when he's serious, but he is lovable when he smiles. Is there anything that this young man can't do to make us feel good?
Jungkook likes to keep a healthy lifestyle. Recently, he revealed that when it comes to taking care of his skin, he feels frustrated whenever he gets acne pimples. When we're tired and stressed out, it can trigger some annoying zits to pop out of our face, and Kookie is no exception. We can all relate to this bothersome acne problem.
Jungkook's Skincare Secrets
- He deals with pimples by using toner and cream in the morning and in the evening.
- He applies toner and cream every morning and every night.
Snow White isn't the only one with a skin as white as snow. Look at how white Suga's skin is! Fans who have seen Suga in person would definitely say that he's got milky white skin. Plus, with his sweet gummy smile and fox-like eyes, he really is a charming man. Well, what could be the ultimate secret to his milky-smooth skin? Sadly, he doesn't have any beauty tips to share. He was just born that way. His white, glowing, and spotless face is all-natural.
Recently, Suga admitted that he has a bad habit of not taking care of his skin. Among all the members, he does the least skincare maintenance. Unlike the other members, who spend so much time applying toner, moisturizer, lotion, and cream, Suga doesn't do much for his skin.
Suga's Skincare Secret
- Nothing much. He was just born beautiful.
As an idol, J-hope believes that taking care of your skin is the first rule for all celebrities. He's very polite and always wants to look at his best whenever he meets his fans and greets them face to face at events. Even without makeup, J-hope's face is smooth and flawless, but he still wants to look good for all the people who want to see him. He's such a nice person!
J-hope's Skincare Tips
- Apply toner and face cream in the morning.
- Follow the five-step procedure: toner, essence, acne care, lotion, and cream.
- Visit your trusted dermatologist regularly.
- He is a very cheerful person with a positive attitude and a funny personality. His positive attitude helps keep his skin looking healthy.
What could be the skincare secret of our smart and genius leader? Could there be a scientific explanation behind the products that he uses? Is he analyzing the chemical properties of the toners and creams? RM, just like the other members, is also concerned about keeping his skin fair. He is a strong leader and rapper, but he is also very beautiful.
Even without makeup, his skin looks smooth and soft. Recently, RM opened up about his skincare routine. He explained that his skin is naturally dry, so his goal is to keep it moisturized to avoid getting flaky. He said, "My skin is dry most of the time, and my biggest concern is keeping it [moisturized]. I get zits from time to time and that concerns me as well."
RM's Beauty Tips
- Using sheet masks after a long day of work is good. His favorite brand is Mediheal and they have a wide variety of masks you can choose from.
- Using essences helps him maintain smooth skin.

I think they are perfect no matter what they look like, and not to think too much about what people like them to be and about the opinion of others. Just be themselves and who they are.

Semina on June 28, 2020:
Shame of you, what is this phrase: "V is beautiful with makeup, but he looks just as beautiful without it"?
You can use the word "handsome" for boys, because the word "beautiful" is used for girls, please.
Azaria on June 16, 2020:
Okay maybe its because I wear glasses, but they look the exact same to me with and without makeup, and they look perfect to me^^
Mrs Taehyung on May 18, 2020:
Kpop idols not only get plastic surgery for even minor defects but also whitening injections. Jimin went overboard with Glutathione
Bts on May 06, 2020:
