With the Christmas season approaching, time is running out to find the perfect party look for the upcoming (socially distant) get-together. If you haven’t ticked your desired outfit or makeup idea yet, here are some K-pop looks that are guaranteed to help you shine brightly this festive season!
1. Facial gem sticker
When the shimmer of a simple good ol ‘highlighter isn’t enough to highlight your beauty, you know it’s time to bring out the big guns – face gem stickers! These not only provide a practical sheen that attracts attention like no other, but are also fairly straightforward to work on and convenient to use and remove. Putting a few gemstone stickers near the eyes will help make your eye makeup stand out 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 bolder yet no less flashy, how about a switch to a berry-red pout? With this look, matching the shade to match your skin tone is critical, and there is always a berry red with the right undertone for different skin tones. The shadow flatters here Sunmi good and gives it a youthful, feminine shine.
3. Veiled fascinators
These have been a staple of K-pop performances lately, and while you might shy away from donning a jeweled veil, how about something finer like what TWICE’s Nayeon is wearing? It adds a touch of dark mystery and can be a great accessory to pair with a smoky makeup look.
4. Kissing curls
In a throwback to the flapper era, kiss curls are back in style. Quirky and edgy kiss locks also help frame the face in seductive ways. The next time you’re thinking about how to work with that pesky baby hair, why not try playing it to puss locks instead for a stunning beauty statement.
5. Girl crush
2020 was the year of the girl crush, and if you’re looking for an outfit that exemplifies that, here is my gold standard! MAMAMOO’s Hwasa brings girls into their super cool combination of vest and blazer.
6. Bustier tops and corsets
These are highly recommended for virtual gatherings as you get all of the style points without the risk of potential frostbite! Bustier tops and corsets are undoubtedly a sensual centerpiece of any outfit and will help you highlight your figure. Aespa’s styling has always been on point and one of their most dazzling sets would definitely be the jeweled bustier tops that accentuate their ripped waists!
