CL 2ne1 “Gotta be You” Inspired Makeup

I think I’ve forgotten how much fun it is to wear full makeup! I work in a church, so I mostly wear a more natural look. But tonight I decided I was going to have some fun ^_^.

If you haven’t seen the newest 2ne1 music video, “Gotta be You,” you should watch it now! It’s not one of their most upbeat songs, but I love it.

As usual, the styling is amazingly on point and the girls look absolutely gorgeous! I really liked Minzy and CL’s makeup especially.

Even though their makeup looks are really similar, I liked CL’s just that little bit more ;).

I wish I still had my blonde hair for this cover look, but my Senegalese twists look cool with this, I think.



So, this was definitely a lot of fun! I love a good winged eyeliner and it made me feel super fierce ;).


And speaking of eyeliner, CL and I have just a little bit of a difference in eye shape. If I tried to make it look exact, the eyeliner would be super~~~ thick because of my deep eye creases.

It’s always important to keep in mind your own face shape and features when trying a new/different look.

Here is a list of the products I used:

  • Tony Moly Luminous Pure Aura CC Cream
  • Estee Lauder Doublewear Foundation in “Sand 1w2”
  • Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Watery Cheek in #03
  • Covergirl Smoothers Concealer in “Neutralizer”
  • Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner
  • Maybelline Rocket Volume Express Mascara
  • Wet n’ Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain in “A Stiff Pink”

My lenses, I actually won in a giveaway from LoveShoppingholics and Go Hálainn! I was super excited to win and even more excited to see how awesome they look on my eyes. I will do a full review on the lenses in a couple of days.

Here is a closer picture so you can see the lenses better.


To say I love them is an understatement! I think I might wear them to Mass in the morning for the heck of it ^_^.

I leave you with these gems.

What can I say? I got bored and my sister kept laughing at me.



If you’ve seen the video, let me know what you think! 😀
