1st Bloggers' Choice Makeup Tutorial: KARA "Lupin" Makeup Tutorial

Goooood evening everyone! Remember the poll on the sidebar that asked which Kpop/Jpop Celebrity Look should I do?  Well here it is :) The winner of the 1st Bloggers' Choice Makeup Tutorial is.....KARA!!!!! And what better tutorial to do than the makeup they wore in the Lupin music video. :)

The look in this video is very dark and sophisticated yet very sexy.  I believe when this video came out other groups such as Girl's Generation and T-ara were making videos similar to this: feminine, dark, and alluring.  I have to say, I look the whole look of their video and the song is very contagious.

Goo Hara is my fave out of the five girls ^-^

And for those who haven't seen the music video, here it is:

Products used in this Tutorial:
NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
Clinique concealer in 05 Medium Beige
bare Minerals foundation powder in Summer Bisque
bare Minderals mineral veil
Smashbox Brow Tech & Cream Eye Liner Palette
Ulta eyshadow kit (colors: shimmering cinammon, metallic dark brown, matte dark brown, and black)
Revlon eyeliner pen
Ulta eyeliner pencil in Black
Smashbox Lash DNA mascara
Ulta blush in pale rose
Victoria's Secret lipgloss in Toy

So first off, wash your face and be sure to use a good moisturizer.  Fill in your brows with an eyebrow pencil or powder because they will be framing your face.  Use a yellow toned concealer to cover up those dark spots and shadows and use a finishing powder to set your face.

Now take a shimmering cinammon color and fill in half of your eyes, from the inner corner to the middle of your eyes.  Next with a a metallic dark brown eyeshadow, fill in the other half of your eyes which should be going from the middle of your eyes to the outer corners.  Blend the two colors together to remove harsh lines. Take a matte dark brown color and outline the outer corners of your eyes then take your index finger and blend it out to create a smokey effect.  With a black eyeliner pen, outline the upper lash line then take a black eyeliner pencil and line the lower lashline.  Take a bit of black eyeshadow and go over the eyeliner and carefully blend/smudge it to darken your lines.  Curl your lashes and apply your favorite mascara.

With a pale pink blush, apply it to the apples of your cheeks.  We don't need a lot of blush for this look so lightly brush it on your cheeks. Finally, take a bubblegum pink lipgloss and apply it to your lips for the finishing touch.  Now you're finished! :)

And here is the final look:

Recreating their wardrobe was fun.  I even did Goo Hara's puff in the video. It didn't really suit me (it looks so much better on her hehe).

Wardrobe for this Look:
Blazer from New York & Company (size sm)
Sequined tanktop from Forever 21 (size sm)
Jeans from Forever 21 (size 0)
Boots from Rainbow (size 7)

I even did some photoshopping to give it a "Lupin" cover feel to it. :)

I had a lot of fun recreating this look and I hope you all too.  Good night!
