Hyuna Bubble Pop Inspired Tutorial

Happy heat-infused week everyone! Today I have a super fun Kpop-inspired look for you. This is honestly one of the most requested looks I've ever had and after watching the video about oh, 5 or 20 times I decided I should go ahead and do the look for you. ^_~



Products used:
Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box (Underground, Honey)
Urban Decay Naked Palette (Darkhorse, Virgin, Half Baked, Smog)
NYX Lash curler (my other 2 faves here and here)
NYX Mosaic Powder in 01 Highlighter
Lioele Crystal Muse Lipstick in Juicy Orange 


Here is the original music video by Hyuna of the Kpop group 4 Minute. She's the sassy rapper and this is her sassy sassiness sassing it up in hurrrr. With bubbles. And pops. Lots of pops.


Here are some screen shots of Hyuna's looks in the video that I took. As you can see, there are a few variations to her makeup but they are all versions of the same brown on top/gold on bottom look with black-lined eyes and glowing skin.





This is the look that I was copying the most, her "smokey" version of the look. You can clicky for larger pics. :)



And here are my pics of this look. For those wondering, yes I have gotten quite a bit more tan while laying out on Huntington Beach, which is really quite appropriate for Hyuna's current bronze goddess look! I actually think it's really refreshing to see a Kpop idol rocking the tan since everyone in Asia seems to be so obsessed with having light skin 98% of the time. 

I, for one, think that you can be beautiful at any skin color and I just go with whatever my skin color feels like being. Skin health far is more important than shade, so wear daily sunscreen (even if you are naturally tan) and be proud of who you are just as you are. ^_^




Pretending to be baller like I am in front of a Hummer instead of my apartment wall. Bam.



Closer shot of the eyeshadow shading. Face glow. Matte lips.



OAnd then I got inspired with all the hair flippity-flippage and whipped my hair back and forth a la Willow Smith. How did I get my camera to focus? Magic, luck, and unicorns probably.




And just because I'm having too much fun creating gifs here is a practically film-like snippet of sweet hair-flying action. I was dizzy after being "creative" but boy was it worth it.




Ok seriously, who tried flipping their hair around (or thought about it) after reading this blog post? Be honest. XD

Hope you enjoyed and for those of you waiting for the Nana monolid tutorial, NO WORRIES! That will be my next Kpop look for sure! ;)

  23. OMG Jen you totally read my mind !

    i was gonna ask if you'd do one on Im Jin Ah aka NaNa from afterschool while scrolling down your pictures,but now it seems like i don't even have to ask ♥ !

    As usual,you nailed HyunA's look perfectly,creating that doed eyed sexy look !
    But i think you're prettier ;D

    Can't wait for NaNa's inspired tutorial!
    Always had been jealous cos she has such a small face & high cheekbones that her monolid eye makeup always looks stunning on her !

    Thank you Jen ♥

  29. Hi Jen,

    I was wondering if you have any recommendations for Korean mascara that works for your lashes. I tried Etude House and Skin Food, neither held up my curls (both are curling formulas too). We seem to have similar types of lashes that don't like staying curled up, so I was just wondering, before I fork over more money for them. I love Japanese mascaras, but they seem to lean to the pricier side, so I would love to have a Korean alternative, which are generally cheaper.
