K-Pop Beauty Icons: Blackpink

Light Up the Sky, the eye-opening documentary on the K-pop sensation Blackpink has debuted on Netflix.

We take a closer look at the trend-setting beauty and makeup styles of the four starlets.

Their makeup is the quintessential K-Beauty look: not over the top but accentuating the natural contours of softer Asian features.

#1 – Subtle smokey

Their lightly-lined and faintly smudged eyes keep the faces looking youthful while sultry and pretty.

Thin eyeliner to define the upper lashline, and lightly smudged neutral shadow just below the lower lashline.

Even while dramatic, Jennie’s eyeshadow is kept soft and feathered at the edges

#2 – Skin-glow-up pastel makeup

Flattering pastel rainbow shades on the hair, eyes, cheeks and lips.

#3 – The Ingenue makeup

Bright eyes with a flick and perfectly-lined bright red/ pink lips. Simple, but so glamourous.

#4 – Glowing skin

The makeup look of a Korean celebrity is not complete without beautifully luminescent skin.
