Makeup Tutorial: Ji-yeon T-ARA inspired smokey eye

I’m back to doing make up tutorials after a long break :)!! Yay!! Mainly because I realised how to use my compact Olympus camera to film them so I can actually see my face when I’m doing the make up. Previously it was hard staring into a endless black barrel lens while trying to hold a mirror on one hand and then half seeing – you get the picture, it was just really awkward!

My olympus has a flip screen thats big and clear and the camera is so small I can wedge a mirror btw the tripod and camera and dangle it. (You probably have no idea what I’m talking about at this point)

Anyways so yes I’m going to be trying to do one every week now :)!! I think my next one I want to do is maybe a look for Park Bom I love you clip :)!!

I totally love how 20% of the YouTube comments are about my chapped lips :P!! Haha yes my lips are dry, like today I put on paw paw and like 10 minutes later my lips were dry again go figure. Then I forget to reapply then it goes downhill – damn you winter!! It’s bad enough in summer for me. I guess a tip is if you want to wear nude lipstick it’s not a good idea on chapped lips haha ๐Ÿ™‚

Before I get to the video I’ll just quickly talk about the products I used:


Foundation: Etude House Mineralize BB Cream
Concealor: Make Up Forever Waterproof Concealor
Powder: SkinFood Red Orange Sun Pact Face Powder
Cheeks: Etude House Blush


Eyeshadow: Smashbox Eye Wish Pallet 
Eyeshadow: Jill Stuart Crystal Eyes Pallet (For the white shimmer shadow)
Eyeshadow: Chanel Eyeshadow in black glitter

Eyeliner: Naris Up ModeReal 24h perfect GEL eyeliner

Mini Review time for this eyeliner:
Previous to using this eyeliner I’ve tried MAC blacktrack and Bobbi Brown Gel Liners and this eyeliner not only lasts longer the color is equally as rich or richer and is a breeze to apply. It comes with a brush too which I used in the tutorial. I highly recommend this liner if you are looking for a well formulated gel liner.

Please show some love to their Facebook page 

Mascara: DaSODA Mascara
Lashes: SkinFood Lashes #11


Lips: MAC Lipstick in Creme De La Mer
Lipgloss: DiorShow

Now for the tutorial:

Hope you enjoy the tutorial ๐Ÿ˜€ Let me know if you have any more kpop makeup requests :D!!

It’s sleep time for me ๐Ÿ™‚
