♥ CL 2NE1 "Come Back Home" Inspired Korean Makeup Tutorial ♥ 이채린

Saturday, May 3, 2014

CL is probably one of my favorite K-Pop stars ever. I love her style, fashion sense, and her confidence! She's such a fierce girl and I ALWAYS love her makeup and hair. After seeing the 2NE1 music video, "Come Back Home", I knew I had to try and replicate her look. I love the idea behind the "Come Back Home" music video and I literally can't stop listening to it! Here's my video tutorial on CL's look! :)


Now let me go ahead and show you the products I used for this look! :) 
Prior to filming, I'd already applied my foundation and filled in my eyebrows. I used the same techniques I showed in my Korean Ulzzang Style Eyebrows Tutorial :)

Here's a close up of the eyeshadows. The top left eyeshadow looks a little bit more brown in the pictures but in "real life", this is a more grey that has a brown tone to it. The top right eyeshadow is a light gold color, the bottom left eyeshadow is a cream colored matte eyeshadow, and the bottom right eyeshadow is a cool-toned matte brown. It looks really red in the picture but again, in "real life" it's much more cool-toned.

These are the lashes that I used! I bought these off of a Ebay for a couple of bucks (sorry I can't remember the seller's name :( ) These are fairly natural looking lashes with a bit of a flare at towards the end.

The concealer I used was the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in "Medium".
The brush I used in my crease was a pointed crease brush from Coastal Scents. (I also did a review on some other Coastal Scents and Crown Brush Brushes!)
For my eyeliner, I used the Essence Long Lasting Eyeliner in "Black". 
For my liquid liner, I used the Almay Liquid Liner.
For my lashes, I used the Revlon Lash Potion Mascara.
To prime my eyelids, I used the NYX HD Eyeshadow Primer.

On my cheeks, I used MAC's "Blush Baby" blush.
For my bronzer and contour, I used ELF's "Warm" Bronzer.
For my highlight, I used MAC's Beauty Powder in "Shell Pearl".
