If you are looking for makeup inspiration, don’t worry as K-pop idols got your back! Here are the five best idol makeup looks for the last half of 2020.
K-beauty is always giving you new looks as Korea is a place where beauty is an integral part of their culture. The beauty looks from K-pop idols can range from bold to soft, but they always steal the show.
K-pop has given us this year’s album releases and debut singles, which means a lot of new K-beauty makeup concepts to try out. So, let’s begin!
1. Thin Lashes
In K-beauty culture, the dense lashes are a thing of the past. For the last half of 2020, we will see more delicate, natural-looking lashes. The look is thin, curled, and separated, with only one mascara coat to give a wide-eyed.
You can try INNISFREE Skinny Microcara Zero, available in brown and black. It is perfect to create curls eyelashes neatly without clumps. The INNISFREE Skinny Microcara Zero uses a micro 1.5mm brush to curl your eyelashes. It is waterproof, and it provides a lightweight finish.
2. Cotton Candy Hair
Taking beauty inspiration from Twice’s “Feel Special” music video, Sana’s cotton candy hair and makeup is not surprising. We will always be a fan of the pastel pink and blue hair trend.
For the glossy skin and shimmery lids you will need:
- MISSHA Triple Shadow Brownie Pink eye palette on your lid
- Black eyeliner from MACQUEEN Waterproof Pen Eyeliner
- ETUDE HOUSE Drawing Eye Brow
- Sweet Coral Candy from ETUDE HOUSE Lovely Cookie Blusher
3. Glitter Makeup
Glittery makeup is still going strong, as you can clearly see it in all the rhinestones, crystals, and sparkly adornments that decorate the faces of your favorite K-pop idols. For 2020 the K-beauty trend is all about glow and radiance.
You can experiment in several ways from full sparkly eyelids to a simple accent to brighten up the corner of your eyes.
If you want them to last all day, it is an excellent idea to apply a primer such as HEIMISH Artless Glow Base to your eyelids before applying these liquid shadows.
You can use them alone or apply them over the top of a powder shadow such as ETUDE HOUSE Look At My Eyes to add some bright sparkle and glitter to your eyelids.
4. Matte Lip
Glossy lips have been a trend for a long time, but now matte is the look to go for in K-pop beauty. Korean celebrities are going for a fuller, more voluminous lip lately. They are choosing velvety lipsticks in bright, hot pink shades.
These lipsticks can be wear as a sheer tint, or if you prefer a bolder look, apply a few layers. To make them last longer, use a lip primer, powder, and lip liner to your lips first.
5. Blush Under Your Eyes
The latest trend is to apply blush under your eyes, and all over the centre of your face, just like (G)IDLE's Minnie from the group Luv U. This trend began in Japan, and it is known as “me no shita chiiku,” which means “undereye blush.”
In Japanese and Korean pop culture, flushed cheeks are often associated with young people. The usually angled blush from under your cheekbone can make you look more mature.
