Video Tutorial - Metallic Monochrome Makeup (Inspired by Ulzzangs and Chinese Net Idols)

Here is my latest makeup tutorial, inspired by Ulzzangs and Chinese net idols. Ulzzangs (Korean for "best face") are good-looking guys and girls who posts their photos online and gain fame and fans; sometimes they go on to become real celebrities and star in advertisements! Chinese net idols are similar, and they are frequent features of Taiwanese TV shows too. The girls in these two groups are known for their flawless yet soft makeup, which are frequently imitated.

This makeup tutorial is INSPIRED by these two groups of beauties. I do not claim that I am (or will ever be) an Ulzzang or net idol, but I love their makeup and how it can change a relatively plain girl into a stunner. Hope you like it!

Here are some closeups of the eyes. I am wearing Pop. C Dark Blue circle lens.

Have some more picspam :)

I really love this eye look. I wanted this look all about the eyes so I went with a toned down lippy. I feel I should have used a nude instead of pink. I'm not diggin' the pink paired with the eyes... Celebrity Media Appearances Sydney
