[Ceci] A Beauty Legend: Shin Min Ah Throughout the Years
There are many actresses who’ve began their careers as models. However, Shin Min Ah has matured into a fashion icon who’s even recognized in the beauty industry. She’s not your typical beauty, but her unique combination of lovable and sexy charms makes her completely irresistible. While her big round eyes, cute dimples, and soft lips make her look like a young girl, her slim waist, curvy hips, and slim ankles emphasize her feminine appeal.
Park Sung Min, a representative of HERA cosmetics, a brand Shin Min Ah endorses, described, “She’s an everlasting icon who receives much love from men. She’s also someone every women in their twenties most want to resemble. Many actresses who’ve been in the industry are normally confined to a certain image. However, Shin Min Ah is a very versatile model who can change her image through makeup.”
Shin Min Ah’s been in the industry since she was in middle school. As such, she knows exactly what to do in front of the camera in order to get a perfect cut. Kim Hyo Sun, manager of the PR team at miss en scene, also a hair care brand the actressendorses, stated “Shin Min Ah actively presents her own opinion during shoots. She would ask how her hairstyle is or whether her makeup needs to be fixed. Recently, she shot a CF for a perfect serum product, and we had specialists from Thailand come in to create certain illusions. During the filming, it was important that the model work and pose in a certain way to create the illusion of a flowy, wavy hairstyle. It was a difficult shoot, but Shin Min Ah completed it like a professional. She surprises us every time with her efforts.”
