Happy evening once again. Today I am back with a glam and glitz tutorial, featuring the former member of Kara: Nicole Jung! In her MV for “Lost”, she is donning a gorgeous evening look, with gold and brown colours, really fit for a diva. Here is my step by step guide on how to look just as good next time you’re hitting the town.
I am starting out with a good moisturising cream on my face. Due to spending all day out in the sun, my skin feels particularly patchy and dry, so it needs a good coat, and aloe vera is especially good for this. Don’t forget your lips, ad smack some moisturising and soothing lip balm on them as well.
Another tip if you’ve got a sunburn, is to smear the area with cool tea. It should help with the burn and prevent the skin from scaling.
Allowing the cream to settle into my skin, I decided to paint my nails a warm golden colour to match my eyes for this look.
I’m using the Holika Holika Naked primer, and applying it to my face. For the primer, don’t use too much, as it will cake up the skin and won’t help the foundation at all. Next, taking my foundation brush and my Holika Holika Petit Aqua Jelly BB cream, I’m applying it and making sure to be thorough and cover any red areas.
Next, for a dewy skin I am taking a liquid highlighter and dabbing it on the high areas and mids of my face. Don’t forget under your brows, and when you’re done, fill them in gently with a shade that’s slightly lighter than your haircolour. Then I’m using a peach blush for my cheeks, and a bronzer to contour, giving that nice glowwy skin we’re looking for.
Now for the eyes.
I’m taking my warm golden cream shade and using it as a base for this look. It might seem intense for a base, but Nicole’s eyes sparkle enough to want a proper vibrant gold base. I’m dabbing it all across my lids, and slightly up towards my brows.
Next, adding a dark brown colour to the corners of my eyes, and blending it out to frame the gold. Keep adding more to the brown until you’re happy with the intensity, without letting it overpower the gold. Make sure to blend it downwards to create a triangle shape in the outer corners of your eyes.
Taking my gel liner, I am adding it as close to the lashes as possible, and only the upper ones. The brown should do most of the work, and the liner will only bring an extra bit of intensity to the look. Then, taking my brown colour again, I am adding it underneath my lower lashline.
Finally, adding a few coats of mascara and the eyes should be complete. Feel free to clean up any residue around the eye areas if you have been working with powder shades.
As a last touch, I am simply adding a touch of golden lipgloss to my lips, and the look is complete!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial, and I will see you soon!
