Still can’t accept the fact that Captain Yoo ended up with Kang Moyeon over you? There’s a way to get closer to being her. Celebrity makeup artist Ryu Hyun Jung dished out the exact products that Song Hye Kyo (the actress who acted as Kang Moyeon, in case you didn’t know) uses during the recent media conference in Taipei, Taiwan, to launch the new Laneige Silk Intense Lipsticks. Scroll the gallery to find out how to create her looks.
For the everyday work look
To create the romantic, lovely look…
First, apply Laneige BB Cushion_Whitening in No. 13 Ivory using tapping motions.
Shape your brows using Eyebrow Cushion-cara. This comes in two colours, Two-tone Gray and Two-tone Browm, so choose the colour that’s closest to the natural colour of your brows.
For eye colours, use the Pure Radiant Shadow in Urban Beige. Apply the brightest colour, which is the champagne colour, all over your lids to brighten up your eyes. Then, use the dark brown colour as eyeliner for a natural-looking finish.
Apply two coats of Lash-fessional Mascara to define your lashes.
Use a round brush to apply the Pure Radiant Blush in Angel Pink on your cheekbones for a girly, lovely finish.
Dab the BB cushion on your lips before applying your lip colour to make the colour last longer. This also helps to create a clean base so you can better define your lips.
Apply Laneige Silk Intense Lipstick in No. 142 Love Me New Me using a lip brush on the inner parts of the lips and blend out for a more subtle, girly finish.
For date night
To create the… All Eyes On Me look…
Use a cool-toned BB cushion like the No. 13C in Cool Ivory to create a contrast with the red lip. Even if you have yellow undertones, you can use a cool-toned base to neutralise your skin tone.
Use the Eyebrow Cushion-cara to shape and define your brows. You can use the two tones to create a gradation effect. If you’re heading to Korea, grab a Brow Shaping Kit, an eyebrow powder palette.
A soft smokey eye makeup complements red lips well, so use the Pure Radiant Shadow in No. 10 Rosebay Garden. Use the top-left corner to apply all over your lips.
Then, use the burgundy tone on the bottom right corner as the eyeliner. Use the same shade to apply on the lower lashline, but do so only on the outer corner so your eye makeup doesn’t appear too bright compared to your lip colour.
Apply two coats of Lash-fessional Mascara on both your top and bottom lashes.
Pat the BB cushion onto your lips as a base. This step is most important especially if you’re using a bold colour.
Use a lip brush to draw the outline using Silk Intense Lipstick in No. 335 Get The Red. Applying just one layer gives a sheer finish, but if you’re looking for a bold finish, apply another layer.
