[beauty] Gain becomes makeup artist! Shows off eyes & lips tutorial



K-POP singer Gain transformed into a makeup artist.

Gain showed off her makeup skills on KBS W ‘BEAUTY BIBLE 2015’ which aired on April 14. She demonstrated her exclusive, special eyes and lips makeup tutorial.

The first secretive tip to her makeup was using eyeliner. “Actually, I am not very good at makeups, so I use pencil or brush eyeliner as it is simple and easy for beginners to draw lines,” she said.


She also mentioned the importance of contouring. “Reshaping a nose by contouring and highlighting it makes your face look smaller, creating a three-dimensional look by enhancing bone structure and shadowing the face.”

Gain revealed her makeup she has worn in her music video. “I used this so-called tattoo lip tint for my lips. Also, regarding my trademark-apple lips, I drew my lips keeping an angle of 45 degrees,” she said.

Meanwhile, Gain is getting a hot response by her own cosmetics brand, ‘gxp’ which she launched with professional makeup artist and beauty director, Pi Hyun-jung. It not only features a variety of cosmetics, but also provides easy makeup tips and tutorials for customers.
