With the spread of the Korean Wave, also known as Hallyu, South Korean culture has become a global phenomenon. From music to cinema to fashion, Korean culture has gained extreme popularity among people all around the world. Part of this phenomenon is the rise of K-pop idol groups and the Korean Idol makeup look that caught people’s attention.
The Korean Idol makeup look emphasizes bringing out one’s natural beauty and glow. It is often characterized by dewy, glass-like skin and minimal, light, and natural looking makeup. What stands out the most in the idol makeup look are the eyes, which are considered to be the focal point of the look. Aside from the eyes, glossy lips add to one’s youthful appearance.
To help you achieve the Korean idol look, we put together these three products!
Offered in two colors here at BAZZAAL Box, the Unleashia Get Loose Glitter produces a shimmery, gorgeous look with just one brush of glitter. The iridescent colors transform the eyes into creating the perfect idol look: Diamond Stealer has glimmers of blue and silver while Sunset Lover is a red and orange colored base with hints of purple.
Apply this glitter directly on the center of the eyelids and on the under eyes (a.k.a "aegyosal") with your own fingers or with tools such as a brush or cotton swab. Once the glitter gel has dried, feel free to layer it with other makeup products. Long-lasting and buildable, this gel keeps the eyes looking sparkling bright all day, even through all the rigorous dancing!
The Dasique Mood Up Mascara Long & Curl creates a soft and delicate doll-eye look. When it comes to achieving perfect lashes, there’s a struggle between a mascara’s lengthening power and staying power. This mascara doesn’t compromise in either area—it keeps your lashes fresh and curled all day long. Formulated with black bean extract, this product helps nourish lashes and promotes hair growth as well.
Use the mascara brush to place the base of the brush on the tips of your lashes, sweeping upwards in a gentle motion.
A K-Pop makeup hack for keeping your lashes curled all day is to use a lighter and wooden stick. After curling and putting on mascara, use a lighter and warm up the wooden stick. Then, use the wooden stick to gently brush it against the lashes to keep them in place all day!
Seulgi, the lead vocalist and main dancer of K-Pop girl group Red Velvet, is the latest muse for Amuse! Infused with 35% water, Amuse's Dew Tints keep your lips glossy. The water-coating finish and water-stained color leave a perfect shine on the lips giving that youthful K-pop look. Its moisturizing formula is made with mango extract, apple extract, and vitamin E acetate to hydrate and protect the lips from environmental stressors. Available in five shades at BAZZAAL Box, this lip tint has a color fit for everyone!
First, apply in the middle of the lips and blend it out as a sheer wash of color all over the lips. Then apply another layer in the center to give the gradient lip look.
Like the K-pop industry, you shouldn’t be afraid to experiment with various looks and makeup inspirations! In this ever-changing industry, there are many looks and styles for you to try.
