BoA "Game" Inspired Makeup Tutorial

Hi everyone! Today I have another "inspired" look to share with you. I have pretty much been obsessed with BoA's new music video "Game" ever since it came out, and it's been a pretty big deal since it's her first Korean debut for the last 5 years. I've actually been a fan of BoA from the beginning when my cousin shared the "ID: Peace B" video with me. What can I say, she was everything I wanted to be: choreographed, cute, with a bomb voice, and no awkward stage!

I still can't dance or sing quite like she can but what I CAN do is pretend like I'm as cool as her makeup artist and copy the look. ;]

Here's BoA's music video "Game" from her just-released album Hurricane Venus.


And here is my version of the look:


Sorry about the bad lighting. It was actually daytime when I started recording but I ran into a few roadblocks along the way during recording and by the time I finished the cicadas were roaring outside and it was pretty much time for bed. ;3

If you noticed the change in editing style, it's because I completed this on my new Macbook Pro using iMovie! I know you probably don't care but I didn't type out all the products during the video since it was a lot of extra editing steps and I don't know if people actually read them. I also talked through the video which I still kind of suck at! Haha. I just want to test a few different ways of recording and editing so if you have any feedback, please do let me know what you prefer to see. ^.^

Her and me. Me and she.


Here are some screencaps I took of BoA's video:


Products used in this look:

Urban Decay Primer Potion
L'Oreal HIP Crayon in Black
MAC Carbon Eyeshadow
NYX Jumbo Shadow Pencil in Cottage Cheese
NYX Ultra Pearl Eyeshadow in White Pearl
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
Coastal Scents Cosmetic Glitter Powder in Crystal Teal
Pretty and Cute Glamour Lash in #048
Pretty and Cute Glamour Lash in #077
Covergirl Lash Exact Mascara
Rock & Republic Contrived Pressed Blush in Tease
Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in 070 Soft Nude
Lioele Blooming Gloss in Vanilla Pink




Maybe some of you caught on that I took the makeup look from one section and the hairstyle/outfit from another. ^.^ It's because I loved her 80's style outfit from the "street" look and thought it would be more fun to recreate. Here's more picspamming because you can't do a look this crazy and not take tons of pics to remember it by, M I RITE?


And just because I can, here is an overdose of inspired silliness.


My hand and I have great conversations.


Those with keen eyes may notice that I popped in my black Geo ck-109 lenses to try to get BoA's super black eyes. This was a fail, but an interesting effect nonetheless. I think the lenses actually balance the cray cray of the look in general.

I do also want to update you guys on my Pretty and Cute coupon code. Previously you could get a free Lioele mirror but I was concerned that a lot of you already have the mirror now, so I wanted to update my code so you could get something else fresh with your orders. I talked with Janie and we decided on a free Pretty & Cute foundation brush with a P&C order of $35! I do have one myself and it's very nice quality (much softer and higher quality in my opinion than the Sigma one that I tried and hated).


OK, I think that's everything. I hope you have a good weekend! As for me, I have a Hanson concert to see. I will not be wearing this look to it lest I scare the long, blonde hair off their heads. It could happen.

XOXO

  15. This is awesome! It actually doesn't look too outlandish on you LOL, if you were walking by on the street I'd be like "whoa, cool!" I'm also an original BoA fan and I love all the looks from the Game MV and the song itself. Can't wait to see her Hurricane Venus MV!

  16. Omg you loook sooo soooo gorgeous! I love the eye make up :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. wow you're really good at creating inspired looks. i think this is the most dramatic one i've seen and you completely nailed it :) the outfit and hair looks great on you too!

    i do think having the names of the products you use typed into the video helps a lot more. i know you write down what you wrote after the video, but actually having a visual of what product you're using and the name sticks to my head more and i get more interested in the product.

    great video :)

  34. I'm an on and off fan of BoA's, but regardless I'm also excited about her comeback to Kpop. Can't wait to see what else she does. You totally nailed her look! I think you rock it better than she does actually. :) Great job! Love your Kpop inspired look tutorials!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I am not familiar with BoA, being that I am from the US..but I like the song 'Game'...who would you compare her to in the US? Madonna, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Janet Jackson?? I'm just trying to get a feel of how popular she is..but she is super cute and her video is so much fun. But you are gorgeous..I actually like the make-up better on you than her! hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love this look, Jen!
    Will definitely try it out when I go clubbing next! :D
    And...I've always thought you look like BoA too! XDXD

    ReplyDelete
  37. Nice look~ I would love to try this out! I'm so amazed how BOA looks different every year.. In the photos you posted she looks more like a well known Japanese popstar!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow it's like I'm seeing double!

    You look gorgeous, and you've done a wonderful job :)

    I just wanna steal you because you're so cute XD

    ReplyDelete
  39. amazing tutorial! thanks so much for sharing :):) just wondering, did you use eyelid tape before recreating the look? don't know if i should use the tape or not if i'm gonna try and put on this much eye makeup. thanks for the tips!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow! Your recreation is pretty spot on!

    ReplyDelete
  41. You look so gorgeous as always! It's funny, my hubby used to be a BoA fan way back when (I have a few of her Japanese songs)... she looks so different now than from what I remember.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I like it when you talk during the tutorials rather than little popups. Thanks.
