SNSD "Run Devil Run" Taeyeon Inspired Makeup Tutorial

Hello lovelies! Today I have another Kpop-inspired look, since it's been a while since I posted my last one. This is inspired from a SNSD (aka Girl's Generation or 소녀시대) video from last year called "Run Devil Run" and is the makeup that the leader of the group Taeyeon wears. 


So to preface this video, I just want to note how much a pain in the butt this tutorial was to create! 

While I was recording, the sun quickly went down making the video coloring really dark and off. Then, several times throughout recording I had issues with application. My Dolly Wink liner was drying out and caused a bunch of wing attempts to look bad, which is why I switched over to the Eyeko liner later on. The first crystal I used was too large and I had to switch. Then, after applying the lashes my eyes decided to become uneven with one double-lid and one monolid. Even with editing the video, I finished editing in Windows Movie Maker and it wouldn't export due to an error (omg hours of work gone)! Had to completely reformat each raw video to work in iMovie and re-edit completely. >_< 

Please forgive any weirdness going on here because it took a lot to get here and I debated not uploading it at all! -_-;;;

Anyway, here's the video. Hope you enjoy it~


If you've never heard of Girl's Generation then definitely check out their leggy, 9-girl awesomeness below. They are basically the most popular girl group in South Korea and watching their videos is like virtually playing with Barbie dolls. They are pretty, sing well, and have catchy, synchronized dance moves. Definitely eye candy for sure! ^_^


Here are some screen caps I took of Taeyeon's makeup from the video. The basic concept is a clean lid with heavy black eyeliner which is winged twice, and crystals at the outer eye corners. She also has a clean, glowy complexion and thick brows.

And my facey face:




I wanted to show my hair but it's kind of a fail since I have a ton of baby hairs at the front-sides of my face so it doesn't look good on me! T^T
Obligatory smile cause that's how I roll.

One last attempt at looking angsty like I am angry at a devil 정말 bad boy.

I also recorded a look on IU for her "Real" album cover look recently so you can look forward to that as the next Kpop tutorial I have coming up. 

Just for kicks, let me know in the comments who your favorite Girl's Generation member is! Not gonna lie, I do love Taeyeon but Tiffany is SUPER super adorable as well and happens to be Korean-American. Gotta rep my Korean-Americans! ;)

  5. I always enjoy how you translate Kpop looks onto your own face. Regardless of how well you think you did, I always like your effort. :)

    I have to say, my favorite member of SNSD has to be Hyoyeon. She's an amazing dancer and I don't think she gets enough attention. She's also hilarious in variety shows.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Dear Jen, maybe you can be GG's 10th leggy member? heehee :P

    i love taeyeon i think she is super cute! :) thank you for posting this review despite the setbacks you encountered.

    ReplyDelete
  7. SUNNY!!! She's such a cutie and my all time favorite ^_^ But I also love Tiffany and Soo Yuong, edgy and beautiful!

    Thank you for rep. for K-pop Jen! I'm a full on American white girl, but I love, love, love Korea and SNSD!! Sorry, it was such a hassle though T.T

  8. jen, im super sorry for making a third comment, but i just remembered a question i had from one of ur old outfit videoes- u showed us a 'promise' ring~ and i was wondering, what is that?

  9. My favorite member would definitely have to be Sooyoung! :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love this look! And I have a few favorites. I love Tiffany, but I have a soft spot for Yuri, Hyoyeon, and Sooyoung. But my absolute favorite is probably Yuri. Thank you for going through all of that hard work! The look came out great! Just a question, if you see this, do you have any suggestions for hooded eye makeup? I have hooded eyes, but my eyelids make it look like I have monolids, and applying any sort of eyemakeup just ends in failure. =/

  13. where did you buy the dermafx bb cream? i can not find it anywhere, and does it leave a grayish tone to your skin?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Awesome tutorial!

    And my eyes do that all the time!
    I'm right handed and my right eye usually becomes 'double lid' and my left eye is usually 'mono lid'.....
    I can never figure out the right angle to put on my false eye lashes to get the double lid look

    Any suggestions Jen?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I like yoona because she's naturally skinny and she is overall natural! She didn't get any plastic surgery at all! haha

    ReplyDelete
  16. omg u look totally awesome! I love how u did those eyes. Thumbs up hunny

    ReplyDelete
  17. It looks so pretty and you got the look down to be just like hers! Nice <3

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love your kpop inspired looks! Great job on this one :) It's amazing how simple black liner can instantly turn edgy and unique by just adding that rhinestone. ~Emily

    P.S. Learning all of their dances is is so much fun! I know the choreography to "Tell Me Your Wish" :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love your celeb-inspired look because you always do such a great job :) although the video quality was kinda not at its best but I still love it :) awesome job jen! ^_^

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  22. i love this make-up look , so prety on u ˘˘

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh I LOVE SNSD and their songs...especially "Run Devil Run"! I think "Run Devil Run" is the stand out. The MV is so cool and the make-up is so nice.
    My favorite member is Jessica, Tiffany and Yuri. I can't decide who is the best.

    And I have to say now I love this tutorial<3
    You always create nice make-up, and I always looking forward to see your new look.
    I have already known you are so cute, but I surprised to see the photo on this article. You looks like Taeyon so much on this photo!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thank you so much for the tutorial, Jen! =D You look fabulous, thank you for your hard work!

    OMG, it's so difficult to choose my favorite member of SNSD... I guess it's Yoona, she's so beautiful and cute, I really wanted that she was my unnie! ^__^ But I looove Taeyeon's dork moments and Sooyoung's spontaneity!

    Can't wait for the IU look, she's adorable!

    Lots of love from Brazil! <3

    ReplyDelete
  25. ahhh it's almost impossible for me to choose my favourite

    but i'd have to say jessica, tiffany and yoona probably :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hej Jen, amazing jobs!!!I found this girl and really Fascinated by her look, wondering if you would have interest on doing one of her look?

    thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Awesome tutorial! The eyebrows really change your the look of your face. Oh and my fav is Tiffany too!

    A few suggestions though... For your photos, you should look into setting the white balance of your camera based on your lighting. Looks like you used fluorescent lights which tend to sway green. There should be a fluo or custom setting in you camera to compensate for it.

    Here is what they look like with a closer-to-true white balance:

    And here with a grade that resembles the MV:
    http://min.us/mfkOvZvoOiHaC

    For your videos, maybe consider getting proper video editing software. Sony Vegas is simple to learn, more capable than imovie and windows movie maker and is more affordable than adobe and apple's offerings.

  61. hi!
    I am a huge fan of you from korea.
    yesterday I wan on the train(KTX) and I was reading the magazine there(KTX magazine) and found out that your blog was introduced!!
    The title of the article was "I learned make-up through YOUTUBE!!" Did you know about this?
    I took the pictures of that page with my cellphone so I have those pictures now. (I wanted to rip that page off but I couldn't T.T)
    If you want, I could send you the pictures!!
    My email is trusthiddink@naver.com

    You are a real huge celebrity in korea now too!

    ReplyDelete
  62. You definitely don't do the moody look that well because you're such a sweet smiley person!! Love the look!

  63. Hi :)
    I noticed that the trend now for Korean celeb eyebrows are like Taeyon's. Any advice on how to get that look?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Do Koreans (generally speaking) have the highest cheekbones of all asian ethnicities? Or is that just my imagination? (deff trying not to be racist here, I'm japanese myself and don't have cheekbones)

    And so true w\hat she said about barbie dolls.

    ReplyDelete
  65. @Chiharu

    Here's an average of Asian faces based on gender and country. They even did an average of some of the actors who look quite different from the average male and female composites of their country. Quite interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Ahh I love this song!! You did a really good recreating Taeyeon's look :D

    ReplyDelete
  67. So sophisticated > <!
    I was getting sick of my smoky looks for going out at night.
    I'll def. try this one!
    Thanks for the tutorial!

    ReplyDelete
  68. thank you sooo much for uploading this look jen. i love love love snsd. and i love iu. so i'll be looking forward to that look as well.

    you're my favorite make up guru that covers kpop <3

    love you jennnn!

    oh and my favorite member. i have like four tied. ummm yoona, yuri, taeyeon. and maybe jessica, seohyun, and tiffany not far behind. well, basically all of them xDD

    ReplyDelete
  69. @Vuthy

    the average korean female face is reallyyy pretty.

    but most of the average composites are pretty good looking for each race--especially the average actors for each, haha. the average actors for each one actually look alike--probably indicating the similar beauty standards that east asians have in general.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Looks wise, Yoona hands down. Personality wise I like yuri and Sunny better ^_^

    Hope to see more tutorial for looks on SNSD!

    ReplyDelete
  71. omg Jen!! that's a great tutorial ^_^
    I just love it when you do kpop make up tutorials!!I get so hyped up each time I see a kpop inspired tutorial ^o^

    Will you be doing the IU make up? not the bronzed one but the more "natural" and more "everyday look" type of make up? We'd be forever grateful!hehehhe <3

    ReplyDelete
  72. i LOVEE LOVEEE LOVEEEEE yoona! :) heard she doesn't really like singing but omgosh she kicks ass at dancing (but defs can't beat hyoyeon). also adore jessica the "ice queen" cause her voice is super unique. but taeyeon and tiffany are veryyyy close third and fourths.

    jen! i think if you joined snsd the others would have to step aside haha. thanks soo much for posting a tutorial based on them and would LOVE to see more in the future! you're AWESOME for pulling through with all the setbacks :))

    ReplyDelete
  73. Hey Jen,
    the looks really suits you! I especially like the glitter!
    I'd have to disagree with you though on how talented the group is ... i find SNSD's popularity lies more on the girls' beauty than their musical talent. Only a couple of the girls actually knows how to sing, most of them are just really pretty...

    ReplyDelete
  74. this is so cool. i LOVE their video :)
    and i think i look out for yoona the most, but taeyeon is awesome at singing :)

    and im really excited for the IU tutorial! i love her in Dream High omggggg<3

    ReplyDelete
  75. wow Jen you look like twins! great job! can you please do a Park Bom makeup tutorial (perhaps her look in you and I)? I love her...thanks for introducing SNSD to us!!!! another Korean group to go GAGA over!!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Great look!! I love all your Kpop looks! Dara's red lip was the video that brought me to your channel! Anyway, my favorite SNSD member is Yoona... I have a total girl crush on her. She's not my favorite singer nor even my favorite dancer but altogether, I just like her the best.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I lurve this tutorial. Sooyoung is my absolute fave, followed by Sunny, Hyo, and Fany.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hi, Jen! You look beautiful in this make up! You are an artist!
    I start my blog this days and I'm following you and linked your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  79. OMG Jen u look like Taeyeon Twin sister..i got confused for a second so pretty xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  82. Hi Jen!Thank you so much for the makeup tutorial.I LOVE TAEYEON!!! she is just an awesome awesome person!!
    Oh,i was wondering if you could do a makeup tutorial on BoA's My Sweetie? Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I hope you can show us Yoona's look too!

    ReplyDelete
  84. HyoYeon is my favourite! I think she's completely underrated. She's an amazing dancer, obviously being the main dancer in the group, and has such a distinct look, she's the reason I got into SNSD! I think she's gorgeous, and definitely needs more lines in songs!

    Love your video by the way, you're beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Could you do a Nana tutorial too? Thank you for doing Taeyoon's tutorial!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Honestly, I like Tiffany and Yuri. But after watching the Goguma couple... I've come to like Seohyun the most! And you're so pretttyyyy!!! And I'm Super looking forward to your interpretation of IU's Real Album look. She's so pretty, and her makeup for those pictures are gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  87. i really like taeyeon's hair too and you did it so well! can you do a tutorial for her hair as well, please??

    ReplyDelete
