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! ;)
