With the holiday season upon us, time is ticking to nail the perfect party look for that upcoming (socially distanced) get-together. If you have yet to tick the box off your desired outfit or makeup idea to try, here are some K-pop looks guaranteed to help you shine bright this festive season!
1. Facial gem stickers
When the shimmers of a plain good old highlighter ain’t sufficient to highlight your beauty, you know it’s time to bring out the big guns – facial gem stickers! Not only do these give you a handy pop of sparkle that draw attention like no other, they are also pretty fuss-free to work with and convenient to apply and remove. Applying a couple of gem stickers near the eyes will help to accentuate your eye make up further for a fun party look!
2. Berry red lips
Christmas will always be the season for a dash of classic red lipstick, but for something more bold yet no less striking, how about switching to a berry red pout? With this look, matching the shade to your skin tone is key, and there’s always a berry red with the right undertone for different skin tones. Here, the shade flatters Sunmi well and gives her a youthful, feminine glow.
3. Veiled fascinators
These have been a staple in K-pop performances of late and while you might shy away from clipping on a bejeweled veil, how about something more subtle like what TWICE’s Nayeon has on? It adds an air of dark mysteriousness and can be a great accessory to pair with a smoky makeup look.
4. Kiss curls
In a throwback to the flapper era, kiss curls are back in fad. Quirky and edgy, kiss curls also help to frame the face in an alluring fashion. Next time you are pondering over how to work with those pesky baby hairs, why not try playing them up into kiss curls instead for a stunning beauty statement?
5. Girl Crush
2020 has been the year of girl crushes, and if you are on the lookout for an outfit that exemplifies that, here is my gold standard! MAMAMOO’s Hwasa delivers girl crush in spades in her super cool waistcoat and blazer combo.
6. Bustier tops and corsets
These are highly recommended for virtual get-togethers as you get all the style points without risking potential frostbite! Bustier tops and corsets are undoubtedly a sensual centerpiece to any outfit and helps you to highlight your figure. aespa’s styling has always been on-point and one of their most dazzling sets would definitely be the bejeweled bustier tops that emphasize their snatched waistlines!
