Wearable Eye Makeup Looks Inspired By K-Pop Boy Groups

K-pop stage makeup helps groups convey a certain mood and image during their performance, and it’s fascinating to see how makeup plays a big part in that. Although their stage makeup is known to be on the thicker and heavier side, don’t let that stop you from trying out some of your favourite makeup looks as seen on your favourite idols. Here, we’ve rounded up 3 trendy but wearable looks — from the boys of K-pop — that you can easily recreate.

Taeyong is arguably the member who has tried the widest range of makeup looks and hair colours in the group, and it’s not surprising why. He pulls off every look and makes them work according to the concept and mood of the song. Truly versatile. This tutorial was inspired by his makeup look during NCT 127’s ‘Cherry Bomb’ promotions, with pink and brown hues as the main eyeshadow colours.

 

 

Tip:
Add shimmer to the middle of your lids to give an illusion of wider eyes.

This peachy eye makeup look was inspired by V’s look from the group’s ‘DNA’ music video.  Nicknamed ‘CGV (computer graphic V)’ thanks to his good looks, he is one of the rare idols who can pull off almost any makeup look and fashion style. We may not be as blessed to have a face as attractive as his, but this particular eye makeup look is flattering for many skin tones, so you don’t have to worry about not being able to pull it off. Peachy eyeshadow shades add a nice, warm wash of colour to your lids and are perfect for the summer! It’s an everyday look you’ll love.

 

 

Tip:
Apply a similar but darker shade on the outer corners of your eyes to add depth.

Wonwoo became known as the ‘Hallucinations Guy’ to non-fans after performing ‘Auditory Hallucination’ at the 2016 Seoul Music Awards, and his eye makeup from that stage gained considerable attention. If you want to try a slightly bolder look that’s still suitable for daily wear, then this slightly smokey, burgundy eye makeup tutorial may just be what you need.

 

 

Tip:
Lightly blend the edges of the eyeliner for a softer and wearable everyday look.
