Wanna One’s Manila leg of their world tour is finally happening tomorrow. As both a celebration and preparation for D-Day for Wannables, KStreet presents a new beauty series: K-Pop Concert Looks!
This series is inspired by the amazing lineup of K-Pop concerts happening in the Philippines this year, and aims to showcase fun makeup looks that are perfect to rock on concert day- or any day when you feel like getting dolled up and showing some fandom spirit.
If you’re looking to dress up for concert day, but haven’t figured out what makeup look to go for; you’re in luck! We’ve prepared two eye makeup looks that are inspired by Wanna One’s striking gold motif. These makeup looks are bound to get you hyped, energetic for the concert, and have (hopefully even your bias’) heads turning.
Makeup Look 1: GOLD
This is a simple gold makeup that is easy to apply and super cute to pair with a pink or peach lip.
- Start off with a clean base.
- a Add a matte, flesh-coloured shadow over the brow bone area using a fluffy brush.
- b Using a round-tip brush, add a light, yellowish-brown transition shade in your crease area, overlapping slightly where you applied your brow bone shadow. Blend these two together until there are no harsh lines!
- Apply a bronzy gold satin/shimmer base shadow all over your eyelid using a flat eyeshadow brush or your fingers.
- Add a yellow-gold shimmer or glitter shadow on the centre of your eyelid. Don’t forget to blend the sides!
- Add the same bronzy gold base shadow on your lower lid, where the aegyo-sal is.
- If everything has gone smoothly up to this point, you should have this result.
- Take the same yellow-gold shimmer and apply at the centre of your aegyo-sal area.
- Take time to make sure everything is blended and there are no harsh lines. Use a fluffy dome shaped brush that is not too dense and don’t apply too much pressure when blending.
- Add a shimmery highlight to the inner corner of your eyes for a blinding look!
- Line your eyes with a dark brown eyeshadow or waterproof pencil liner and smudge for a soft but defined look. If you’re feeling adventurous, use a liquid liner to elevate your eye makeup!
- Apply mascara to your lashes with a waterproof mascara.
Makeup Look 2: BOOMERANG
This is slightly more advanced, but definitely a standout look from the crowd. If you have confidence with eyeliner, try out this makeup look.
- Start off with a primed lid. You can use concealer or eyeshadow primer.
- Use a dark brown cream base all over the lid. A pencil eyeliner will work also.
- Make sure to blend the cream base well into your skin to avoid creasing or hard lines under eyeshadow
- a) Apply a matte, flesh coloured shadow on your brow bone. Then, b) use a mid-toned brown shade in your crease as a transition shade.
- There are still some hard lines, but we’ll get back to that!
- Apply a matte, deep chocolate brown shade all over your lid with a flat eyeshadow brush.
- Blend everything with a fluffy dome brush!
- No hard lines = happy eye makeup.
- Line your outer eye with a gold shimmer or glitter liner. For that perfect flick, think: isosceles triangles! Also, your liner shouldn’t pass the tip of your eyebrow.
- Draw a curved line slightly above your crease and connect it to your eyeliner. This is a little difficult at first, but with a little practice can yield beautiful results.
- Because I used a cream base instead of a liner, I’m just setting the cream with a yellow-gold eyeshadow.
- Don’t worry about messing up at this point, a rough outline is a-ok.
- We’re going to define the line by cleaning up the edges with a matte smokey brown shadow, this will help define the outer corner of the eye, while allowing the gold liner to pop.
- Apply black waterproof eyeliner to the upper waterline.
- Apply your transition shade to your aegyo-sal.
- Use a chocolate brown shadow to define the inner and outer corner of your lower lash line. Also, add a yellow gold shimmer shade to your inner corner.
- Apply the same yellow gold to the centre of your aegyo-sal.
- Hang in there! we’re almost done.
- Line the corners of your lower waterline with a dark brown liner.
- This is optional, but applying a white/flesh-toned pencil to the centre of the lower waterline makes the eyes open and pop more.
- Apply waterproof mascara to your top and bottom lashes.
