In a recent radio interview, beauty YouTuber Risabae detailed the efforts that go into every one of her “cover” makeovers, in which she recreates another person’s look with astonishing accuracy.

Host Park Myung-soo praised her ability to perfectly remake another person’s look with makeup -- an art form known in Korea as the “cover” makeover.

“I like seeing how my look can change through makeup. Sometimes I get surprised too,” Risabae said. “Although makeup is considered most important, (duplicating a person’s) hairstyle and clothing is a must to be more realistic. I practice my facial expressions too while I’m in the shower. My diverse facial expressions are what my viewers love the most!”

Risabae started off as a member of MBC’s special effects makeup team and is one of the most popular YouTubers, with about 2 million subscribers. She won the Korean Consumer Forum’s 2018 Brand of the Year Award in July.
