If I were still doing video tutorials I might have done one for this look because I really like how it turned out in the end.
I've seen the Trouble Maker MV a few times and always liked this particular styling on Hyuna.
The mix of sage and bronze eyeshadows with a random pop of a baby pink lipshade, I think it's cute. Since I had all the time in the world to get ready today I thought to try an inspired-by look.
It's particularly challenging as when I say inspired in these situations, I really mean that I'm trying to get the exact thing she has going on - the tones and shades etc. It's not going to be perfect, hence the 'inspired' disclaimer, but overall I like how it ended up.
Here's a screencap of the look that I was going for:
I thought to skip on that lower lash eyeshadow thing that she has going on because I'm not used to doing that but in end I tried it anyway. My take was a lot more subtle and shaded out, compared to hers.
Here's my take:
When some people do inspired-by looks they really end up looking like the person in question. For me, I feel I just don't 'look like her' because of my face structure? So I thought why not throw on some grey contacts to bring me that one step closer!
Cheap trick, I know.
Apologies for the scary closeup picture mid-way through but the full face shots turned out to be rather scaled down after uploading. Thus I felt a close-up would be a good representation of the complete look.

Accidentally left Smashbox's Primer in Luminizing out of the groupshot, oops.
Here's a breakdown of what colors were actually used (and how) since a couple of quads/palettes were used.
- All over lids, below the crease, blend the edges!
- Dab on the inner corner of the lids
- Layer over color (2) because I wanted a slightly lighter tone.
- Dab (with fingers because this color has fall out!) on the centre of the lids
- Blend from the outer corner to the centre, extend it slightly out of your lids. Dab color (5) again if it gets muted
- Blend this lightly above the inner corner (crease area). You can see the bronze in the images above!
For the heck of it I tried my hand at center-parting (which Hyuna has), something I haven't done since my secondary school days...
But eep... no.
I think I am much better off with my bangs or to compromise maybe slightly centre parted bangs. heh
All that aside, today was such a gloomy and rainy day with so many things going wrong but within all that wearing this makeup just made me feel that tad bit better, is that weird?
If I don't manage to get on here later today or on Christmas, I want to say...
Thanks for reading!
