[by Jung Yoo Jin/ translated by Yanchingsally Chu] In 2015, there were stars who actively participated in diverse activities and created hot issues in the beauty and fashion industry.
As every move celebrities make has been spotlighted recently, their fashion styles are also in the limelight. Artists are always being praised for dressing nicely and have gained the nickname ‘fashionista’. The items they used are always sold out. However, their face is the key to completing their styles. Glistening makeup makes their fashion stand out.
Nana, Choa and Shin Min Ah are the representative fashionistas. We will not only introduce their fashion styles, but also makeup tips of these perfect stars.
★ Nana’s Lip & Eye Point Makeup
Being selected as the most beautiful woman in the world for two consecutive years, Nana flaunts flawless styles with her pretty face and outstanding body. She puts emphasis on her eye and lip makeup to complete unique clear eyes and sexy lips in daily life. Let’s examine her makeup tips.
Without special color makeup, she gives a strong impression easily because of her long eye shape. She uses a low-profile nude eyeshadow to appropriately contour her eyes and applies an eyeliner to fill in her mucous membrane for more defined eyes. By strengthening her long lashes and applying a slightly matte red lipstick, she completes her makeup that grabs one’s attention effortlessly.
★ Choa’s Dolly Makeup
With a doll-like appearance, AOA member Choa is active both on stage and variety shows. She mixes brown and pink colors to pull off dolly makeup.
Apply a champagne creamy eyeshadow as base on your eyelids and top it with a pink or brown color that is a shade darker than your base on a smaller area for contouring. Then, use a dark brown eyeliner to fill in your upper lash line.
Repeat the step for under lash line with a brown eyeliner and link it with your upper eyeliner. Lastly, apply a delicate gold eyeshadow below your under lash line and get lavish lashes with a mascara. Complete your eye makeup with a pair of brown contact lenses to create pure and elegant doll-like makeup.
★ Shin Min Ah’s Lovely Coral Makeup
Although Shin Min Ah doesn’t have a lot of colors on her face, she showcases a bright complexion with natural coral makeup. Natural makeup can present a beautiful image unpretentiously. Efforts are particularly needed to obtain this effect.
The selection of base products is of prime importance. Get a translucent and glowing skin with a light foundation that has a high adhesion. Then apply a coral pink blush and lipstick to present a natural complexion.
