2NE1 "Try To Follow Me" Dara-Inspired Rainbow Eyes Tutorial


I'm not gonna lie, I'm especially excited about this tutorial. Remember that whole Facebook doppleganger thing where you'd choose the celebrity who is your lookalike as your profile photo for a week? I chose 2NE1's Sandara Park since she is the celebrity I'm most often told I look like. In fact, a sweet girl even private messaged me to tell me that someone else was stealing my photo to use as their facebook photo (but it was actually that I was using Dara's photo! hehe...)

2NE1 is one of my favorite Korean pop groups and I've always had a soft spot for Dara so I'm totally flattered to have people think we look alike! Most times when people tell me I look like someone I don't see it but for Dara I can somewhat see the resemblance as with Narsha from Brown Eyed Girls.

Check out their Try To Follow Me video here:


And my tutorial here:

What do you think? Do we look alike?



Some screencaps I took. Love her rainbow shadow!!


Products used:

Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream
MAC Blot Powder in Medium Dark
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
NYX Single Eyeshadow in Olive Green
NYX Single Eyeshadow in Wildfire
NYX Single Eyeshadow in Hot Pink
Stila Barbie All Doll'd Up Palette (turquoise and champagne shadows)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
Pretty and Cute synthetic lashes in Victoria
Shiseido Eyelash Curler
Lioele Up & Down Waterproof Mascara
Lioele Artist Auto Eyebrow in Gray Black
Lioele Cushion Touch Blusher in Cutie Pink
Revlon Fantasy Lengths lashes in Lush (lower lashes)
YSL Rouge Volupte #1 Nude Beige
Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder in Candlelight

And here are my shots. Plz to appreciate my hard work in curling my bangs like this. I am no hairstylist. I swear, Sandara's must have been an actual tube inside or fake hair or something because this was NOT EASY! I'm pretty sure I used an entire can of hairspray. Don't ask me to do a tutorial cause I swear it will be soooo bad. XD


My best Dara impressions. She does lots of silly faces!


And just having some fun with the light. Ooooh, backlighting~


Let me know what you think in the comments!! What should I do for my next "inspired" look?

xoxo

  7. You guys have some similar features, but not total twinkies. You both have different qualities, she's more on the cute side, you look more mature and sophisticated/sexy. Thanks for the tutorial :)

    ReplyDelete

  14. Jen! Aw you did such an awesome job! I love 2NE1 and Dara is one of my fave girls out of that group. That music video is also one of my faves. When it first came out, my friend and I couldn't stop admiring their make up! Especially their eye makeup! It's just toooo pretty! And I think you did a great job. The bangs looked super difficult to do. I think you're right, Dara must have had something rolled up in her bangs or they were fake bangs lol for them to be THAT perfectly rolled lol!

    One of my friend's went to YG Entertainment building to deliver stuff to 2NE1 today (: haha I was so excited, and wished that I was still in Korea so that I could go with my friend Lol.

    ReplyDelete

    Check List of thoughts by me that others have thought too a millions times before:

    [X] You DO look like Sandara!
    [X] You both are soooooo prettyyyyy!
    [X] Your skin is flawless.
    [X] I think you're a bit prettier than Sandara but you both are GORGEOUS!
    [X] You should be Sandara's stand in and be part of 2NE1 when she isn't available for appearances.
    [X] You are talented. You have mad artistic skills with make-up and with everything you do!
    [ ] You are a pretty pink pony in another life I've decided.
    [X] Looove you!

  28. WOW!! Your makeup and hair is DEAD ON!

    ReplyDelete
  29. WOW... I am speechless.

    You did such an amazing job Jen!
    I like your look better than hers. I think it's something to do with the lashes. STUNNING!!

    I don't know what other look I'd want to see but I know I'll love whatever it is you do. I enjoy all your videos.

    ReplyDelete
  31. i've never commented before but just had to this time!
    WOW that was amazingly done

    ReplyDelete
  32. oh! and to add.. I remember commenting on one of your vids that you resembled sandara but from certain angles you resemble boa too! :D maybe you could do a boa-inspired tut next ^-^

    ReplyDelete
  33. That's a very cool look...
    Thanks and keep it up!

    In your opinion, do you prefer Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream or the Lioele Beyond Solution BB Cream ?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  37. OMG! You look practically the same! =D

    ReplyDelete
  38. You are just soo incredibly amazing and talented, Jen!! Lol I agree with Kassia's checklist 100% You look STUNNING and you definitely really nailed this look to the POINT!! I think you guys look SOO similar!! Except your nose is slimmer and "taller" than hers. I think you're prettier and cuter just because I somewhat know you "personally" (thanks to the good old Internet) and I don't know her at all--I just know of her since she is a celeb! hehe I always enjoy all of your videos! LOVE watching every one of them!!

  71. Really nice! Thanks again for anothe great tutorial :D I'm also very interested in skin79 BB cream. Are you going to do a review on it? Because I think Lioele is too light for my skin tone, so I was wondering what your thoughts were on skin79.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Stunning! You two looks the same, but i agree that you're more gorgeous.. I've been itching to try a makeup with "rainbow colors" since the time i watched alice in the wonderland.. Love how the color are combined... So this is posted on the right timing.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Stunning lookalike! Beautifully done =) Esp the hair!!

  78. :) Great tutorial Jen! You really pulled off the look.

    Gotta love 2NE1. All their songs are so refreshing and different to the other girl bands out there. Looking forward to their new album, I hope it's as good as their previous one. ^^

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hi Jen,

    I googled Narsha of Brown Eyed Girls..i got to say..she works a better doppleganger of you rather than Dara. just check out this pic..

    http://popseoul.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/narsha_hannah_20090903.jpg

    the likeness...doesn't it creep you out a bit??? =^.-=

    ReplyDelete
  80. you look amazing! like a twin sisters, hehe.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. gorgeous! you do look quite a bit alike :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. You should deinitely try something from the new Final Fantasy game, big in Japan.

    ReplyDelete
  83. The picture had me confused for a second.U guys look so much alike there. but man...u and narsha! i can see the resemblance. :)

    continue to do kpop inspired makeup. i loved the abracadabra video btw

    ReplyDelete

  86. You look so gorgeous! The look is so good on you! You make it look wearable! haha, I'd love to see a BoA inspired look sometime!

    ReplyDelete
  87. OMG. Your resemblance to Dara is seriously uncanny.. Wow, you really did an excellent makeup tutorial based on the music vid. I'd definitely rock this look at a neon 80's party! :)

    ReplyDelete
  88. AWESOME job!!! i love your blog and tutorials!!

    ReplyDelete
  89. This was such a great tutorial!!! The two of you look almost identical!!! Thanks Jen, it was so much fun watching and I love how in the end of the video you sarcastically say this a great everyday look especially when you are shooting storm troopers or something lol

    ReplyDelete
  90. you do look like her! but you have a more mature feminine look, while hers is a younger almost tomboyish face. (it's the eyebrows and nose~)

    I thinkkk you should experiment WAY OUT for your next tutorial and do a Japanese popteen girl look. Buy a blonde wig and do the falsies!

    It'll be tough to pull off but it'd be great to experiment just to see, and for fun!

    I know I'd appreciate that tutorial :)

    ReplyDelete
  91. Oh my gosh! You made yourself look just like Dara! So pretty... did you not use eyelid tape? Amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  92. wow you really look like her!

    ReplyDelete

  96. sooo pretty *-*~~~ thank you for the new tutorial~~ I LOVE 2NE1

    ReplyDelete
  97. When I first started watching you on YouTube, I immediately thought you look a lot like Dara. There are similarities between the two of you. Wonderful job you've done.

    ReplyDelete
  98. wow you do look like dara! xx

    ReplyDelete
  99. Great job! :) Love the make up tutorial! You do look alike ^^ I've seen Sandara Park on a lot of TV shows before on The Filipino Channel. I guess she started the Korean frenzy back there. You two are adorable! Sweet! *two thumbs up!*

    ReplyDelete
  100. Love the tutorial! You look like dara.! You look better than dara !!

    xox

    ReplyDelete
  101. i think i like your version better, hahah! :D

    ReplyDelete
  102. sandara joined a tv contest here in philippines. she didn't win though. but she had lots and lots of fans! then she went back to korea to study acting. when she went back to philippines, there were others who became more popular than her. I guess it was a good decision that she chose to try the limelight in korea. because she became an international star.. ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  103. personally i think u look BETTER than the original!! :) i love your rendition of it <3

    ReplyDelete
  104. You look exactly like her! >o< OMG!~

    ReplyDelete
  105. You should do a SNSD look for your next tutorial! May I suggest Sooyoung or Yuri? My two favorites!

    ReplyDelete
  106. uh, are you sure you're not secretly an asian star pretending to be an every day blogger?

    haha you look so alike, great look!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I actually like ur look way better, esp the lashes.

    ReplyDelete
  108. loved the tutorial! could you please do one on Hyunain her music video change?

    thanks in advance!

    ReplyDelete
  109. SNSD look next please! Genie or Run Devil Run.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Can you do Tiffany Hwang from SNSD? Can you do a tutorial on all of her hair styles or maybe most of them and her bangs? :D Much appreciated! :)

    ReplyDelete
  111. Are you guys separated at birth? You look so much alike! I so love the eye makeup, it's beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  112. 안녕하세요~ 한국팬 입니다!
    인터넷을 보고 알게되었어요~
    정말로 멋진 여성이란 것을 알 수 있습니다
    I LOVE YOU~

    ReplyDelete
  113. oooh you look like her with the backlit photos!

    ReplyDelete
  114. U both are really like twins!!

    ReplyDelete
  115. I love this look! I tried it last night and I was able to use MOST of the colors you used in this look, from the UD 15th anniversary palette (the olive green was the only one missing). I'm also asian and i have small double lids, but the only thing I wasn't able to see the colors as much when I opened my eyes, maybe next time i'll bring the color up higher. otherwise i loved it! i love your inspired looks & all the fun lashes you experiment with! ;)
