It is not surprising why everyone wants to look like K-Pop idols such as Lisa of Blackpink, Nancy of Momoland, Girls Generation and BTS just to name a few.
What all these K-Pop idols have in common is that they are not afraid to experiment and try out different looks and colours to generate beauty trends.
So, prepare yourself for some major inspiration ahead because here are 7 K-Pop beauty ideas that will blow off your mind!
7 K-Pop Beauty Ideas
1. Winged Eyeliner
If you want to draw attention to your beautiful eyes you must try this look. To get it you need to try pairing tapered, winged dark eyeliner such as TonyMoly Back Gel Eyeliner Long Brush, and plush eyelashes with a light or nude lipstick like 3CE Velvet Lip Tint.
To get more inspiration you can look at Chaeyoung which left quite an impression when she combined K-pop glam with western-style makeup.
Aegyo-Sal is a K-pop makeup trend that it is a little bit different. It is about faking a little eye bag underneath the eye. To do it you have to swipe the contouring stick where you want the eye bags to begin. You can do it with Etude House Look At My Eyes.
After, you need to create a puffier looking eye bag. You will need a matte highlighter and produced the shadow below the lower lash line. This technique will make your eyes look bigger and your face younger.
3. Straight Brows
K-Beauty and makeup are all about looking young and beautiful and the straight brows give you exactly this. To get your eyebrows straight you need to complete the arch.
Here is a little trick if you have a long eyebrow, you need to erase the finishes by touching lightly glue over it. Once the glue is dry, go over with a concealer such as Too Cool For School Art Class By Rodin Shading and set it with Etude House Zero Sebum Drying Powder, and that should give you short and straight brows.
4. Glowing Cheeks
Having healthy-looking glowing cheeks is what Korean makeup is all about. To get this look you a lotion blusher in pink or peach and apply it on the apples of the cheeks and softly blend in a circular motion towards the temple. Finally, just let the brightness of the blush take effect.
5. Glitter Eyeshadow
K-Pop idols focus their look in their eyes. To do it they wear glitter eye shadows, like Peripera Sugar Twinkle Liquid Shadow, on their lids. They finish the look by putting on falsies to make their eyes appear bigger.
K-pop stars like Hyuna like to combine glitter eye shadows with red lipstick to make her makeup colourful and unique.
6. Gradient Lips
This list could not be complete if we don’t include gradient lips. This Korean makeup trend is without a doubt one of the most popular and the great thing is that it is easy to do it.
To have gradient lips all you need is to choose a bright pink or orange lipstick, from A’Pieu Water Light Tint, and then apply it along the inner part of your lips, finally just swipe it throughout once.
For the gradient effect grab a small lip clean and blend it outwards. To complete the perfect lips just top with a clear shine. Or you can just use the Laneige Two Tone Tint Lip Bar for instant gratification!
7. Porcelain-Smooth Glass Skin
K-Drama actresses are famous for their porcelain-smooth glass skin. If you want this same look you need first to prepare your skin with a dewy primer, then softly pat cushion base makeup, such as Memebox Pony Effect Everlasting Cushion Foundation, over the face, and only use The Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer, on the parts that need coverage.
