Hi everyone! Today I’ll be showing you how to achieve this regal look from Kara’s Damaged Lady MV. It is very easy, and looks perfectly sultry yet classy for a late night out. Here we go!
I’ve started off using my Petit Aqua Jelly BB Cream from Holika Holika, and mixed it with my liquid highlighter, in order to create soft, dewy looking skin. Conceal any red spots or blemishes, but leave underneath your eyes for later.
Use short light strokes to fill in your brow in an even arch. The Arch needs to be smooth and gentle, no harsh strokes or lines. Blend out thoroughly, and apply a brow mascara if you have one. I’m using Clio’s Twist Up in a reddish brown.
If, like me, your face is wide or you have a prominent chin, take some dark contouring powder and apply it along your hairline and jaw in sweeping strokes. Gently pull it a bit in to make your cheekbones, but focus on shaping your jawline to look like more of a V-shape.
Highlight the cheekbones, nose bridge and chin, and the middle of your forehead.
For the eyes, I’m using a nice champagne color and blending it all over my lids. Then, taking a shimmering light colour (I used Etude House’s Bling Bling eyestick), highlight the inner corners and line underneath your eyes.
Using a white eyeshadow, dab in underneath your eyes, focusing it on the inner corners and blending it out.
I’m using a charcoal grey colour, and applying it to the outer corners and blending it in underneath my eye. Try to create a droopy looking puppy-eye effect by blending it down following the line from your upper lashline.
Taking a pencil liner, line your lower waterline in the inner and outer corners, leaving it natural in the middle. This will open up your eyes.
Using a gel liner, or if you don’t have that, dipping a thin pencil in a bit of water and using black eyeshadow, line your eyes. Og as close to the lashes as possible, and use short strokes to connect. When you’re done, blend it downwards and into/over the grey from before. Be careful not to wing it upwards.
Apply your favourite mascara, and take your time. You don’t want your lashes to glue themselves together. Use a q-tip or make-up remover to remove any left overs from your eyeshadow or mascara spots, and apply your concealer to cover up dark circles.
Finally, take a nice pink/red shade and line your lips. Fill them in, and finish it up with a nice full lipstick. I didn’t have any quite as purple-ish as Gyuri’s, but play around and find any shade you prefer. Finish up with a nice gloss and you’re ready to go!
