K-Beauty Looks From Our Ambassadors | Clozette
One of our favourite things about makeup is its versatility, the ease of creating a variety of looks and moods through subtle changes in colour or texture. Since we've caught the K-Wave fever, we got together with LANEIGE and gave three of our Clozette Ambassadors a Korean makeover, taking inspiration from sweet, girly K-looks and also channelling the makeup style of popular K-Drama actress Park Shin Hye and K-Pop star Hyuna

Here are our Clozette Ambassadors Sydney, Celine, and Kymm before their makeover!

And since one cannot recreate a Korean-inspired makeup look without perfect ombre lips. we were excited to see LANEIGE's latest spring collection launch, the Two-Tone Lip Bar, in action!


Sydney with the Two-Tone Lip Bar

With Korean stars rocking perfectly ombre lips from the runway to the K-Pop stage, the Two-Tone Lip Bar now makes it easier than ever to achieve that dual colour pout that gives the illusion of a fuller, juicier lips. It features a dual complementary colour combination that naturally blurs colour boundaries, while its moisturising texture allows it to glide smoothly onto the lips for effortless application.

To fully capture the K-Beauty looks, our Ambassadors were treated to a full hair and makeup makeover, with LANEIGE and Clozette's talented team of makeup and style experts who beautifully transformed the girls to be K-Beauty ready.



Makeup Makeover Essentials


The LANEIGE makeover team came prepared with the brand's range of top products, such as their BB Cushion, Lumi Volume Primer, Watery Cushion Concealer, K-Secret Cushion Tint, Pure Radiant Shadow and Blush, Jet Curling Mascara, and of course their Two-Tone Lip Bar. The team also prepped the girls' skin with products from LANEIGE's Water Bank line, giving the girls soft, supple skin to complement the K-makeup.

Romantic Spring Look:

In line with the coming of Spring, Celine channelled a sweet, romantic vibe for her first makeover look. Soft, pink pastel colours were used to bring a touch of brightness to her face. The look was finished off with a sleek, braided bun that complemented the lace details of her white dress. 




Park Shin Hye:

Celine's K-Drama look was inspired by popular Korean actress Park Shin Hye who is best known for her roles in K-Dramas such as Flower Boys Next Door and Pinocchio. Shin Hye's style is that of a sweet girl-next-door with a clean, simple makeup look that emphasizes her natural features. This was a perfect fit for Celine who embodies that natural sweetness to pull this off.





Kymm Liang

Party Look:

Kymm's party-ready look featured a sultry grey-toned smoky eye that was well-blended around the crease for a softened look that will stand out at any party. The eyes were balanced out with a peachy-nude lip that emphasized Kymm's naturally full pout. 




Hyuna:

Kymm's K-Pop inspired look channelled the daring style of Hyuna, the main rapper of the K-Pop girl group, 4Minute. With such a unique edge in her personality, Hyuna is known for bold makeup looks that play with colour and texture. Quite similar to this look which saw Kymm in a bejewelled lips, bright eye makeup, and tousled ombre hair ensemble.





Sydney Ho

Fresh & Dewy:

For Sydney, the team chose to accentuate her features with a fresh and dewy makeup look that Korea has been widely known for. The key to achieving this look is perfecting the skin with a moisturising product for that supple, pore-less look. The skin is then finished off with a light application of base products to keep the face looking fresh and uncakey.




Red Carpet:

With her sharp features and captivating eyes, Sydney was the perfect choice to channel a K-inspired Red Carpet look. Embodying the allure of K-Stars, Sydney's makeover consisted of a polished brow, softly lined eyes, fuchsia ombre lip, and a radiant blush for a subtle glow. The look was finished off with a sultry side-swept hairstyle with softly, flowing curls.

It all started in 1915 through the desire of a young woman from New York who wanted to stand out. She mixed coal dust with Vaseline and used it to amp up her lashes and brows.
