Park Bom Inspired Look


So, it should be no surprise to you that I'm into K-Pop! I love, love, love K-Pop!!! I wanted to recreate a look from "Can't Nobody" that the lovely, fantastic, beautiful, regal, heavenly...I think you guys get it, Park Bom wears.

Keep in mind that Bomtastic and I have very different eye shapes. My eye is more round and I have a bigger lid. I'm going to post the pictures and tell you everything I did wrong! What better way is there to learn than to go over your mistakes, right?

This is what I was going for! It's beautiful!
Here's what I did

My best Bommie face
Okay, so first off, I blended the color in my crease too much. It should've been more intense. Also, the bottom lash line shouldn't have gone so far in, maybe a quarter of the way in, not almost half way. I think I got the lashes okay. In the video, it looks like she has two pairs of lashes, one strip that kind of flares up and corner lashes. I didn't get a strip but put on a pair of corner lashes towards the center of the lid so that they kind of flare up when you open your eye. Finally, the crease color should've created a triangle shape with the wing, so that it looks like the wing of my eyeliner is smoked out. 

In the video, she doesn't wear a lot of face products. Her skin (like mostly all K-Pop idols) is flawless. I just put on a foundation and added some highlighter that isn't picked up in my picture (lame -_-). In the scene I was trying to recreate, it looks like she's not really wearing lipstick, in fact it looks like her natural lip color which, is really rosy. I just took a red lipstick, dabbed it on my lips, and smoothed a nude lip gloss over it. 

At least I know where it went wrong! It still came out pretty though ^_^.

  • Inglot 391 Eyeshadow (in the crease, as liner around the eye)
  • Inglot 353 Eyeshadow (all over the eye and lid)
  • K-Palette Eye Liner (over the eyeshadow to create a more defined line)
  • Make Up For Ever 6K pencil (in the inner rim)
  • Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara
  • Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #4
  • Nars Albatross Highlghter
  • Lime Crime Retrofuturistic Lipstick 
Well, I hope you've enjoyed my attempt! I'll try again soon!
