Annyeong! Hallo there!
Today I’m back with an exciting post! You see, I’ve been obsessed lately with the new 2ne1’s music video.. You guys sure have known about it too, yup.. It’s “Falling In Love”! I just love this new song, the reggae theme is so enjoyable and fun!
I embedded their Youtube video in here so you can see..
For this post I will start by making the inspired look of CL’s makeup in this video.. Note in the “inspired” word, I tried to make it as close as possible, not exactly the same. Because I have to adapt it on my face, so I have to make some changes to make it work on mine.
CL’s makeup look: subtle cut crease, strong eyeliner with cat-eye shape, bronzed goddess look with brown goldish lips.
Ok, after getting all of the makeup points down, I’m ready to give it a try!
Start with the eye first, I’m using these:
For eyeshadow primer, I’m using Urban Decay Primer Potion to make sure everything holds in its place.
Since CL’s look is heavy on the eyes, I’m using this Bourjois Effet Smoky in Ultra Black for lining my eyes. This eye pencil is currently my go-to product since it can draw lines beautifully and can be smudged to make the perfect smokey eyes. I'm loving it! I think I will buy it in different shades.
For eyeshadows, I’m using palettes from Etude House and Revlon. First I’m using the matte shadows from Etude to make a good base and then to spice things up I added the shimmer one from Revlon.
Halfway done, with eyeliner and matte shadows only
Added shimers and bottom eyeliner. Her makeup was more subtle than this, but I realized when I follow her subtle cut crease, it doesn’t show well on me, so I have to add more drama to it. So this is the result.. :)
Time to add some lashes! I’m using Iris Fashion Lashes which was sent to me to be reviewed. This is #305, more spiky and thicker than natural ones and it’s perfect for makeup style like this. It’s made of 100% natural human hair so it’s soft and follows our eye lining so it won’t hurt your eyes.
Ok let’s put on the lashes!
Wuah, lashes can really change your look! I think this lashes are really comfortable and easy to wear, and the design is so pretty! It’s thicker and longer on the outer corner so it makes the perfect cat-eye shape. And at first I thought it would be heavy, but turned out they’re not! I’m really happy with the quality of these lashes and highly recommend this to you! Go visit the website at http://www.irislash.com/ and Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/irislash. ^_^
Full lashes on! Love it!
For my face, I’m using these:
Because in the MV CL’s face was pretty tanned and bronzed, I’m reaching for my Revlon Photoready Airbrush Makeup in the shade Golden Beige, which is clearly darker my NC20 skintone. It made me darker to NC30-35, which is the look I’m after. So, if you have foundation that is darker than you, don’t throw it away! You might find it handy in times like this! Also, it’s good for contouring. :D
For the cheeks, I’m using MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Stereo Rose for blush and The Body Shop Bronzer in Warm Glow for added glowiness.
For the lips, I’m using Fresh lipbalm to moisturize it before moving on to NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Natural and Bourjois Effet 3D Max Lipgloss for brown goldish lips.
Haha! Check out the difference of my face with my hand! XD But nevertheless, I’m showing you the power of makeup, hehehe..
Oh gawd so different… XD
But you know, I tried, hahaha.. And the most important thing, I had fun. Makeup should be fun, right? :)
On a side note, here’s a video from Simon and Martina’s Eat Your Kimchi (I LOOOVVEEE THEM!) talking about 2ne1’s Falling in Love new MV. So funny!! XD
My favorite line of their video is: “Cause Real Men admit when they like KPop”. Oooh yeah! I think it will make a great T-shirt (which I would definitely wear), hehe.. No joke, seriously. :D
Well then, I hope you enjoy this post and stay tune for the next one! I’m still contemplating on which one I should do first: Dara’s blonde goddess look, or Minzy pink wig one, or Bom’s blue eyes stunning look? They’re all so pretty I can’t decide!
See you on the next post! ^_^
