[BNTgirl Collab] 4MINUTE – Cold Rain (Gayoon) Make Up Tutorial

Good morning guys (10:25am here).

Today I’ll be doing a make up tutorial wooooo!

Inspired by 4MINUTE’s Cold Rain mv, the BNTgirls decided to each do a make up look based off of a group member in the MV. I got Ga-yoon, dark lips on point.

Check out the other BNTgirls’s links;

So let me take you guys on a winter wonderland, err, I mean show you how I did this (see picture below or video).

Alright let’s do this.

Using the Wayne Goss method for dewy skin, powder then foundation, I used;

LANCOME – LA BASE PRO (primer)
LANCOME – DUAL FINISH MATTE PORCELAINE 1 (powder)
LANCOME – PHOTOGENIC LUMENESSENCE BUFF6W (foundation)

I applied the foundation using my beauty blender for a more even natural finish.

Next using the NARS contour kit in Paloma, I contoured my face, creating. a more chiseled face, contouring my cheek bones and around the face.

Continuing with the contouring, I used my YSL Touche Eclat (2) to highlight portions of my face, as shown below.

After that I did my brows using:

ANATASIA BEVERLY HILLS – DIP BROW MED BROWN
ETUDE HOUSE – COLOR MY BROWS 1

Next up is the most intense part of the tutorial, the eye make up. Bling bling~

For my eyeshadows I used Urban Decay’s Naked2 Palette and theBalm’s Nude’tude Palette.

I first primed my eyes with Urban Decay’s Original potion primer all over my lids to make sure the shadows intensify and stay put all day.

Next I put NAKED 2 – FOXY all over my lid.

After that base it’s basically a gradation, or a build up of color that looks natural. I like to create a sort of smoked out outer corner V shape (like shown below in the big picture).

First off I’m going to use NAKED2 – TEASE in the crease of my eyelid and then with a pointed shadow brush I’m going to build the gradation (brown hues)

And then I’m going to put a light shimmer on the middle of my lids NAKED2 HALF BAKED.

After that I’m going to go back in with a lighter more skin colored highlighting shade ( NAKED 2 – BOOTY CALL) in the inner corners of my eyes and on my lower lash area creating a aegyo affect (supah cute).

After that I’ll highlight my brow bone again with NAKED2 – FOXY and tightline my eyes using CLINIQUE – GEL EYELINER TRUE BLACK.

After that my camera died, awks. So I had to charge it, in the mean time I put on false eyelashes and mascara.

HEROINE MAKE – LONG & CURL MASCARA
EYLURE – NATURALITES EYELASHES 020

4minute cold rain.Still023

Using Benefit’s Boi-ing (01) I covered up my lips to help create a finer lip in the end game.

Starting up the lip game, in this look the lipstick or the lips are the statement piece. All focus should go on the lips so a little prep goes a long way.

I’ll be using LANCOME – COLOR DESIGN in PRETTY BURGUNDY for my lipstick shade.

By using the X mark technique for the top of the lips, you make a more defined top lip.

With the lips being the statement piece of the look it never hurts to go back in with a concealer (in my case YVES SAINT LAURENT – TOUCHE ECLAT 2) and make sure the lips are on point.

After that, we’re finished. Ta-da, my 4MINUTE Cold Rain Gayoon look is finished, let me filter it up and we have the finished look!

Interview Make Up Tutorial!

 

Hello everyone, I’m back! Sorry for the almost two month long hiatus. I swear I’ve been secretly taking pictures and stuff… I’ve just been in a sort of slump/busy school year, gah.

Anyways I’m back by request of a friend to do interview make up! It’s really a no make up make up tutorial but matte, you don’t want to seem dewy/oily for your interviews! You also want a make up regiment that doesn’t take more than 10 minutes. Since you’ll be preparing yourself with materials before the interview to prep yourself. This should optimally take less than 10 minutes.

I know it’s interview season now, so good luck everyone! I’m hoping to do well also…!

It’s a really simple tutorial, that makes you look ready and fresh faced for your interview. Basically it makes you look like you’ve actually had 8 hours and sleep.

Alright so I’m going to also do a written tutorial of how to my interview make up, just in case you’re really busy and you don’t have time to watch a 4 minute video or you want a brief refresh. I’m also going to list my products here! 🙂


 

1. You start off with a sleep deprived face. So the first step is to prime + moisturize your face, primer + lotion + chapstick if you’d like.

I just used my Burt’s Bees chapstick (my fav) and some face lotion to moisturize (Fresh’s face lotion).

Interview.Still004

Aww yiss look at my tired naked skin, don’t worry you’ll look fresh and ready after my tutorial!

2. Second step really is to conceal EVERYTHING. Eyebags, pimples, red spots. Everything. You want to seem like you aren’t freaking out about this interview, that you’re ready….So ready in fact you look like you slept like a baby last night, but you didn’t.

I’m using Missha’s Under Eye Concealer, it was a pretty sweet deal at $5. I’m using it today instead of my higher end products because those are pretty time consuming, but I suggest if you do have more time than 5 minutes to do your interview make up, use your higher end ones.

Interview.Still005

Remember to use only your ring fingers when blending away the concealer under your eyes! We don’t need a early onset of eye wrinkles.

3. Step 3: Is to use a MATTE foundation, really stressing the matte-ness of it. You don’t need to look so fresh and dewy, you’ll eventually look oily. Because let’s be real, when we’re stressed we sweat and produce oils on our face. Best method is preventative. So let’s go with a matte foundation, yes you may not “glow” but at least you won’t be oily.

I’m using Lancome’s Dual-Finish Powder Foundation in Porcelain.

Basically I just buff it into my face using a large powder blush, light but even coverage. Feel free to layer in some more if you need high coverage.

Interview.Still006

Step 4: I like to add some blush with a light hand, because I’m already pale, I don’t want to seem sickly, so I like to add in a nice flush of color. Choose a really natural shade, I wouldn’t suggest a suggestive blush like NARS orgasm…yeahh…no. Go with something neutral and that looks natural.

I’m using Mood Exposure from the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush palette (review coming soon this week, huzzah). With a light hand I sweep it from the apples of my cheeks to the side of my face.

Interview.Still007Step 5: Is really optional, I wouldn’t suggest heavy contouring but maybe some light “natural” contouring. You don’t want stage make up here, ladies.

I’m using NARS laguna, and I just sweep it under my cheek bones lightly and around my face.

Interview.Still009

Step 6: Tightlining, What tightlining your eyes really is, is going over the spaces between your lashes with a eyeliner, or in my case gel eyeliner, to make your lashes seem fuller. It’s a super natural technique so it’s very usable for interview make up. I even slightly winged it out from my lash line to make my eyes seem bigger.

I’m using Sephora’s Gel Eyeliner in Brown. Remembering natural no make up make up!

Interview.Still010 Step 7: Is again optional. So If you don’t have time really, skip it. Curling your eyelashes + mascara, shouldn’t be really really important.

I’m using Benefit’s They’re Real! Mascara, remembering you’re not here on a date, but here to make a good first impression for your LIFEEEEEE…..So kind of like a date but more serious, we’re not trying to flirt our way up in life, show your skills…err you know book wise.

Interview.Still012

Step 9: Is the last step, to use a natural MYLBB (my lips but better) lipstick, or you can stick to your chapstick, whatever floats your boat. I just like to have my lips a even coverage. Completing my look, yeah?

I’m using NYX’s soft matte lip creme in Amsterdam.

And ta da! You’re Finished!

Interview.Still014Finally some tips from me, a asian girl, to help you with your interviews.

A. Don’t wear crazy nail polish (like myself in the video)

B. Be confident about yourself, I’m not talking overconfidence, but you know…confident in yourself, you already got the interview! They’re impressed with paper you, you just have to impress them with you-you.

C. Lastly, don’t panic. Cold sweats meh, keep calm and zen.

D. Good luck everyone!

Hello everyone!

Sorry for my realllllyyyyy long break, haha. Today I won’t be talking about food unfortunately and if you were only interested in my food stop reading now or maybe continue if you’re bored!

If you want to see how I turned into this.

So my new hobby lately besides food has been make up, and I recently got some new items from The Face Shop.

I’ll be featuring 3 out of 5 items today.

First The Face Shop Lovely ME:EX Design My Eyebrow in shade (05) which is the darkest grey brown as recommended by the store associates. I also got the Lovely ME:EX You & Face Blusher in (09) cinnamon dream, which is their darkest contour color and their Eyelashes (01)? No idea they were the “smallest” looking ones so I thought they’d be more natural.
