Welcome to Beauty Diary: Seven days of getting glam with an industry insider. From publicists to professional makeup artists, this is a week in the life of someone who lives and breathes beauty.

As the founder of New York-based Korean beauty e-tailer Soko Glam, Charlotte Cho's job is to source the very best cosmetics from Korea (no small task in a country where the average skincare routine involves eight products), test them out, and, if they make the cut, place them one click away from her customers—a mix of Korean expats, global beauty buffs, and women who have just discovered the multitasking pleasure of Netflix-ing in a sheet mask.

For this week's beauty diary, we followed Charlotte on a Seoul workcation—where she hit up the city's night markets, got an impulse bob, hung out with Korean it-model Soo Joo Park in a Chanel-strewn suite, and gave us a sneak peek at some adorably-packaged products that might make it on the site next season.
