2NE1 CL Birthday Makeup Look

2NE1 fans all over the world are rejoicing right now because finally 2NE1's long awaited second full length album was just released a few hours ago! I'm so happy because 2NE1 is honestly one of my favorite KPop group. The album, CRUSH, is released on the leader, CL's, birthday which is February 26, and as a tribute, I'm here to bring you another CL inspired makeup look. if you have missed it, I previously a Bad Girl inspired look, you can check it out here.

Anyway, this makeup look is from the birthday poster that was uploaded at YG-Life for CL. I tried my best in recreating the look, but keep in mind I have totally different features as her. Hope you enjoy this!


  • Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation - Apply foundation all over the face for a flawless and smooth canvas.
  • Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Concealer in Medium 28 - Cover under eye circles
  • NARS Bronzer in Laguna - Contour the face lightly
  • NARS Blush in Deep Throat - Lightly apply the blush near the back of the cheeks for a subtle flush
  • Benefit Watt's Up Cream Highlighter - Apply on the forehead, bridge of the nose, around the nose, Cupid's bow and under the eyes. Blend out with a brush or a clean finger. 

Urban Decay eyeshadow in Buck - fill in the brows into a rounded arch shape to mimic CL's brows in the photo


  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Original - Prime the eyes
  • Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in Irresistibly Ivy - Apply the antique gold shade (2nd shadow) all over the lids with a shadow brush. Next, take the reddish brown shadow (4th shadow) with a fluffy brush and apply it on the outer corner of the lids, bringing it up on the crease, blending it with the gold shadow. Also, bring the brown shadow on the bottom lash line.
  • Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Liner in Blackest Black - Outline the shape of the liner on the lids and then fill in the gaps with the gel liner. Do the same with the lower lash line. Don't forget to line the upper and lower lash line with the gel liner too.
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Blackout - With any black shadow, pack this shade on top of the gel liner to set it. Also do this on the bottom lash line and blend it out for a softer look. 
  • Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in Irresistibly Ivy - Take the light, shimmer shade on a pencil brush and apply it on the inner portion of the lower lash line below the gel liner. 
  • Maybelline Volum' Express Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara Waterproof - Curl the lashes and apply one coat of mascara
  • Lonjure Lashes in N2 Angel -Apply full lashes.

  • Estee Lauder Lipstick in Pinkberry
  • Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Hot Pink Rage - Since I don't have a lipstick with the same shade as CL's I just mixed this lippies to achieve a slightly similar shade.
  • NYX Lipgloss in Mauve - Top it off with a gloss.

Sharing my love of KPop. Give a listen to 2NE1's new album, CRUSH. Seriously, all the songs are great! A good mix of hip-hop, R&B, reggae, electro and a lot more! The album is available in iTunes! Let's wait for their MVs to drop! ^^
