Hey everyone! I'm sure by now you've all heard the super-viral Kpop song by Psy called "Gangnam Style". He's been everywhere from Ellen to SNL to local radio stations and it's no wonder considering the song is insanely catchy, comical, and has a corny dance to boot.
Making a cameo appearance in the video is 4Minute's Hyuna who had her signature eyeliner and a funky, fresh-faced look. The makeup tutorial requests came rolling in and of course I was happy to oblige. :)
In case you missed it, here's Gangnam Style with over 350 million views:
And here's my makeup tutorial:

These are a few screencaps I took of Hyuna in this video:
And here are my pics of the look!
You can really see the puppy-dog effect of the eyes here. The eyeliner is drawn horizontally out from the bottom lash line, causing a half moon shape.
The shadow on the lid is a neutral shimmery color which doesn't distract too much from the heavy liner and pink gradient lips.
On the cheeks, those with tanner skin can use a warm bronzer between temples and ears like I did. Fairer skintones like Hyuna can use orange or peachy blushes as well.
And of course, what is any good Kpop look without getting into the cheesy dance spirit as well? I have literally been doing this dance all around my new apartment, much to the chagrin of my husband. Hahaha!
After completing this makeup, my husband called me "Hyuna" and I kept doing double-takes when passing the mirror. I usually don't feel that way, but this time I weirdly did see some resemblance since the eyeliner changed my natural eye shape so much. What an odd feeling! Let me know in the comments if this has happened to you too!
Thanks so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
