A look at Park Bom and the first thing that captivates you is probably her eyes. The 2NE1 member is rarely seen without her signature doll-like eye makeup – and when she doesn’t have them on, you’re most likely to spot her in sunnies.
She might have a group of makeup artists on hand to create the immaculate look, but it’s possible to recreate it in front of your vanity table. Here’s how.
Shiseido Maquillage True Eye Shadow in PK363
Use shimmery eyeshadow
Park Bom is almost always seen with shimmery eyeshadow. However, she usually opts for silver, gold or champagne shades to bring out her eyes.

Lengthen your lashes with falsies
Unless you’re born with naturally full and long lashes, we suggest using falsies to build up the volume and length, and then setting it with two coats of mascara. This helps to enhance the doll-like effect. Of course, remember to curl your lashes before you put on the falsies!
Use fake lashes on your lower lash line
What sets her eye makeup apart from the rest is the fact that she uses falsies on her lower lash line too. However, don’t go overboard – just stick the individual lashes on the outer corner of your eyes to open up your peepers. Also, don’t be too concerned about having it right at the corner. It’s fine to leave a bit of space to give the appearance of larger eyes.
Draw a thick eyeliner
While you don’t want to go crazy with the cat-eye look, you do want to ensure your eyeliner is fairly thick – at least enough to cover the lashline of your falsies. Flick the ends to create a winged effect.
CHANEL LE CRAYON KHÔL in 61 Noir
Fill up the gap on your lower lashline
Use a kohl eyeliner or dark-coloured eyeshadow (this depends on what colour you’re sporting on your eyelid) and smudge slightly along the outer corner of your lashline towards your eyeliner. Then, extend the line about halfway along your waterline.

Dab some colour on your inner corners
Pick a shimmery eyeshadow that’s a shade or two lighter (or brighter) than your primary eyeshadow colour and apply it on the inner corners of your eyes. Alternatively, use a creamy pearlescent eyeliner. You’re all set to rock that party!
