My last K-pop makeup tutorial was all the way back in August last year (wow that long ago?!?), so of course it’s time for new one!
I asked on my Facebook page about what K-pop looks you guys would like me to do and a few of you suggested SNSD (aka Girls Generation). SNSD is not doubt one of the most popular Korean girl bands and I am a fan of their catchy tunes (love ‘The Boys’, ‘Hoot’, ‘Oh!’, ‘Genie’ and good old ‘Gee’ – ok pretty much all their singles!).
I loved SNSD’s stylish MV for ‘The Boys’ and Tiffany’s sparkly makeup really caught my attention. Even though this look has already been done quite a few times on Youtube, it didn’t stop me from giving it a go and (hopefully) making it my own.
This look is all about glitter and lashes. Shades of brown eyeshadow were used to give the eyes definition and the lower waterline was lined with gold eyeshadow to highlight the area. To add the sparkle, a silver glitter was applied over the brown eyeshadow and a champagne glitter was applied over the gold eyeshadow.
After lining the eyes (remembering to add the ‘double wing’), I used a pair of somewhat ‘natural’ false eyelashes for the top lashes and added clumps of individual eyelashes to the lower waterline. Although the individual lashes were the shortest I could find at the Hairhouse Warehouse, they still looked a bit too long so I gave them a trim with a pair of small scissors.
The look is finished off with a natural pinky beige blush on the cheeks, illuminiser to highlight and a light pink lipstick and clear gloss for extra shine.
Tiffany wears a green and black sequin dress in the MV and the closest dress I have to that is a silver sequin boob-tube dress from Supre. I bought it at the Supre Warehouse and I believe it was under $10 (I also bought the same dress in black). I kept the shoes simple with a pair of patent black peeptoe pumps from Tony Bianco.
I stuck with silver for the jewellery with a pair of silver jewelled chandelier earrings, a silver ‘collar’ necklace (great statement piece!) and a big bejewelled ring – all purchased from Diva.
In the MV, Tiffany has big loose waves which can be achieved by using a large barrel curling iron. As I don’t own one, I curled my hair using my hair straightener. It didn’t come out perfectly as I am not the best at using my hair straightener as a curling tool, but it was not too bad!
This outfit and makeup is perfect for clubbing events! The makeup alone is a great choice for the prom as it can pretty much match any colour dress.
Lastly, if you are a big fan of K-pop and live in Melbourne – don’t forget to check out the autumn HACHIsounds! It takes place at 6pm this Saturday (14/04) and is a K-pop/J-pop concert performed by local Aussie talents. It is a night for everyone to embrace Korean and Japanese music and well as their unique pop culture. Tickets can be purchased at the door – make sure you check out their Facebook events page for more details! One of my friends and fellow blogger Khatsii is an organiser for the event, she has worked very hard so please help spread the word!
