Hi everyone! I have yet another Kpop-inspired tutorial to share with you today. It's one I recorded kind of a while ago and like last time, I had some troubles with the lighting. This always makes me hesitant to post since I want to produce really nice quality for you guys but -sigh- sometimes I feel like I put so much work into it, I might as well post.
In real life, I was super happy with how this look turned out. I don't think I look like IU myself, but the makeup on this look isn't too heavy and it's quite wearable minus the random lash wispies. It's very Springtime chic! The orange cheeks are unusual but so on-point with the orangey trends this season, no?

Here are the photos of IU that inspired this look. She's so ethereal like a wood nymph, I fell in love with the look right away!
And I decided to add one extra nerdy gif just because I had so many people say I look like IU as Pilsook in Dream High when I wear my nerd glasses. HAH!
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! I have some more photos that I took with this makeup while wearing my regular clothes (because I liked this look so much) that I'll have to post next time. I just don't pull off the all-red sweater as well as the doll-like IU! My face is much more angular and she has softer features than me in general as well, so for some reason I give off a more "sexy" attitude with this makeup. LOL! You'll just have to wait and see next time...
