KPop Inspired: CL (2NE1)

As my avid readers might have known, I love KPop and on the top of that list is 2NE1. This girl group surely know their music and fashion and has been crowned by MTVIggy as the Best New Band in the World before 2011 came to an end. Watch out for their US album produced by Will.I.Am to come out this year.

Today, well actually yesterday (February 26 in Korea), was the birthday of 2NE1's leader, CL and as a tribute I recreated her makeup in their music video of Can't Nobody with the help of screen caps and Jen of Frmheadtotoe at Youtube.

Here's the look:


Face/Cheeks:
L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Creamy Beige - since this is too light for me, but has amazing coverage, I applied it first before the foundation; I applied it under my eyes, around my nose and mouth
Revlon ColorStay Foundation in Medium Beige 
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
NYC Sunny Bronzer - contour the cheeks
Estee Lauder Blush in 11 Nude Rose

Brows:
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Buck


Eyes:
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original
Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner in Charcoal - outline the shape of the eye and fill it in, do the same for the bottom lash line making the inner corner of the eye defined and pointed (I know mine is not even in the photos - one is pointier than the other and I only noticed after taking the photos!)
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Creep - with a flat shader brush, pat this shadow on top of the gel liner to set it and to deepen the color
Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner in Blackest Black - Line the bottom lash line to intensify the color; also line the upper and lower waterline
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Blackout - with a smudge brush, light smudge the black liner on the bottom lash line to soften the look
NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in Turquoise Pearl and Yellow Gold Pearl - spray MAC Fix + or any mixing medium on the back of your hand and mix the two pigments together to achieve a lime green shadow (since I don't have any intense lime green liner or shadow), with an eyeliner brush, line the inner third of your bottom lash line
False lashes - apply criss cross demi lashes (I forgot the kind of lashes I'm wearing since I don't have the box anymore)
Maybelline Falsies Black Drama Waterproof 

Lips:
Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipstick in 909D Coraline - since I can't find my lip tint, I used a lipstick; apply on the center of the lips, rub the lips together and blend out with your finger so that you get a nice gradient




Hope you like this look!  Oh, I also did a Park Bom of 2NE1 makeup look a few months ago, you can check it out here

I'm attaching the English Version of 2NE1's Can't Nobody MV. 



Tell me what KPop inspired look should I do next.

  25. While I'm not a fan of 2NE1's music. I love their make up & style. I've always wanted to replicate Park Bom's make up looks that she wears in her music videos, but I never got around to it, haha.

    Great job on the make up. While the eyeliner is strong it's still quite a wearable look in my opinion. I love it. ^-^

    1. Bom always have crazy long, falsies and they all have thick liners. I recreated a look of Bom from Ugly MV link is up in the post above. :) I have a hard time looking for their looks that uses shadows since they mostly use liners. I it is really wearable. :) Rock it anywhere, any time. :)
