Blog #18: Lips Like Unnie (KPOP Idols and Them Juicy Lips)


Annyeong yeorubun!

This entry today is actually a week late. I was supposed to post this last week in honor of the National Lipstick Day (which I had no idea existed until I read a tweet of Marie Claire magazine) but I caught a bad case of flu so I was bed-ridden for a good full week.

But now that I'm up and about, I might as well get this out in the open. After all, better late than never, right?

So yeah, here we go. Lemme share with you my fascination with KPOP idols always perfect, never smudged, lips and what the experts recommend to us to snag 'em juicy kiss!

TTS TAEYEON - HOLLER MV

Never been a fan of Taeyeon. There's something about her that put me off but I've got to admit she's got mad vocals. One thing though that I dig about her is how absolutely on point her lips were!

Bright pink lips, dark petal inner lips. Gradient make-up has never been this fab! But how can we, mere peasants recreate this look that top celebrity Taeyeon pulled off?

Luckily, there are crazy genius ladies like Lamuqe who helps us with beauty steals. Watch her video on Taeyeon's Holler look for tips on how to snag Taetae's beauty:





As for the key tool used to mimic this look? Lamuqe recommends this ingenius product by Espoir in RD201:

KARA GYURI - MAMMA MIA MV

From a "kid leader" to the "goddess leader" of KARA, Gyuri stands out for me as the true visual of the group. No offense to Hara but I just find her beauty common whereas Gyuri looks more Japanese rather than Korean. Anyhow, let's talk about how insanely good Gyuri's lips look in their Mamma Mia music video. That creamy salmon peach shade did just right. Not too matte, not too glossy either. I. WANT.

SUNHWA - I'M IN LOVE MV

When Secret came out with their "I'm In Love" music video, I went cray with their bold, vamp concept. I especially looooove Sunhwa's blood wine lips that screamed F-A-B-U-L-O-S-I-T-Y!

Burgundy wine lips are all the rage this Fall and Sunhwa nailed the look with her bloodshot lippie. Since not all can pull off this bold lip color, there's a way to rock this look without OD-ing on goth: lip gradation. Try Espoir Lip Stain Water Glow in Bite Me ffor a subtle effect.

SANDARA IN FALLING IN LOVE MV

The glorious blonde hairstyle was not the only on point element in 2NE1's vid, Sandara's ethereal make-up stood out as well. I've never been a fan of light, pale lips (ok, there was a time when JLo made nude lips all the rage but I was very young then so, I don't know if my judgment's valid that time) but I know when to appreciate a great styling when I see one.

My fave make-up artist, Pony (Park Hye Min), did a special tutorial on Sandara's look in Falling In Love and I must say, she's on point. 






As for the lippie, her reco to match Sandara's soft peach lips is this vermillion shade, Ameli Platlips in Plastic Orange.

NANA IN CATALLENA MV


Nana is super blessed. Not only is she so goddamn good-looking, she's also tall and slim. Being a part of the sub-unit Orange Caramel was a big boost in her career and in 2014, her group came out with an addicting bop, Catallena. Here we see Nana sporting weird costumes and make-up. But her lippi managed to stay afloat despite the huge ass make-up she wore.

Pony made a special feature for this look and I was surprised that Nana's lips didn't need much effort. To get the perfect baby doll lips, try Innisfree Glossy Lip Lacquer #9.

And there you go! I'm sure there are a lot of other lips we want to have but for now, this is my list. Hope the reco have given you an idea how to score their puckers. I think they're pretty useful.
