2NE1's Sandara "CAN'T NOBODY" Look

Hello everyone! TGIF!!! lol Hope you all are having a great week if not there's always the weekend.  Finals start next week so for those who are in college like myself, I wish you luck :)  So here is a new tutorial featuring the ever so lovely Sandara Park from 2NE1.

I posted the music video below the photos.  Sandara's makeup in the MV is so vibrant and gorgeous and it's great for going to clubs and parties.  I'll admit it was a bit difficult to recreate this look due to the different shades of purple and hints of hot pink but once you finish this look I swear to you that it's worth the trouble.

Products Used in This Tutorial:
Clinique concealer in 05 Medium Beige
bare Minerals foundation powder in Summer Bisque
bare Minerals Mineral Veil powder
Smashbox Brow Tech & Cream Eye Liner Palette
Ulta eyeshadow kit (matte purple, shimmering lilac, shimmering white, hot pink)
Victoria's Secret eyeshadow in Blindlight
Sephora's eyeliner pencil in White
Ulta gel eyeliner in Black
Smashbox Lash DNA mascara
Ulta blush in Pretty in Pink
Victoria's Secret lipstick in Kiss Me
So as always start off with a freshly cleansed and moisturized face.  Cover up any dark spots or shadows under the eyes and around the mouth and nose with a yellow toned concealer to cancel out the purple hues.  Be sure to define your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil or powder.  Take a liquid foundation or powdered foundation and apply/dust it on your face with a kabuki brush.  Use a translucent powder to finish prepping your face.

Now take a matte purple eyeshadow and cover your entire eyelid with the color.  This is going to serve as a base for the rest of the colors we're using.  Take a lilac eyeshadow and apply towards the middle of your eye.  For this step, I used Victoria's Secret eyeshadow in Blindlight.  Now take a shimering lilac color and apply it over the first lilace color.  Take a dark purple and apply it over the rest of the matte purple.  In the inner corners of your eyes, take a hot pink eyeshadow and apply it here then lightly blend it in so the colors transition together.  Now the easy part: the white lines pattern.  Take a white eyeshadow and draw small lines on you eyes.  If you need to, you can practice drawing them on the back of your hand.  Take a white eyeshadow and lightly dab it onto each line to make the white stand out. You can also apply white eyeshadow to your brow bone to define your brows as well.

Take a black gel eyeliner and line your eyes, winging them out a bit at the ends.  Curl your lashes and apply on a volumous mascara.  If you want, you can apply on falsh lashes for a dramatic effect.  With a pink blush, apply it to the apples of your cheeks.  Finally, take a pink lipstick and apply to your lips.  Now you're finished. :)

So here is the final look:

Wardrobe Used in This Tutorial:
Hoodie from Walmart
Shorts from Forever 21
Shoes from Lady's Footlocker

Since I didn't have any cloth that was like in the MV, I got creative and made a Hip-Hop outfit instead.  It was actaully pretty fun doing the shoot for this tutorial since I got to play around with this outfit (though I would never actually wear it out in public :P)

It's a very beautiful look and goes well with any eye color especially brown eyed girls.  I hope you all have fun with this look.  Good luck!
