Alexander Lee Eusebio, 25
The South Korea-based singer and actor was in Singapore last month to shoot a TV commercial for denim brand Denizen.
He is also one of the three leads in home-grown movie 3 Peas In a Pod, which is currently showing in cinemas. In it, he plays a university student who gets caught in a love triangle.
Eusebio rose to stardom in 2008 as a member of Korean boyband U-Kiss. He left the group in 2011 to pursue a solo career.
Since then, Eusebio, who is of Korean, Chinese and Portuguese descent, has also released a solo album and starred in the Korean drama show Immortal Masterpiece.
What is the one product you would not step out of the house without?
Sunscreen. I don't want to be too dark or have pigmentation on my skin. But I do like going out in the sun, so I'll always wear a cap and put on sunscreen.
What is the one grooming service you cannot do without?
I go for facials about twice a month in Seoul for a thorough cleanse and to get dead skin off my face. Facials help my face look brighter.
What, in your opinion, is the best beauty invention?
BB cream. It evens out skin tone and covers spots, without being too thick. I prefer it to foundation. It's quite common for guys to use BB cream in South Korea, but some of them put way too much and end up with very white faces. I like the Etude House Precious Mineral Bright Fit BB cream ($25.90, for 60ml); it's actually for women, but it works for me.
What is your favourite perfume?
L'Eau Par Kenzo Pour Homme by Kenzo ($81 for 50ml). I like scents that are fresh.
What is the most ridiculous thing you have done in the name of beauty?
I did an intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment on my face to remove some pigmentation, but I ended up with a dark patch on both cheeks around my sideburns. They were about the size of a small coin and I had to go for laser treatments twice a month before the marks eventually went away two years later. I have not done IPL since.
What is the best beauty tip anyone has given you?
Make-up artist Larry Yeo from Singapore told me that if you use sunscreen every day, in the long run, you'll look 10 years younger than you are.
