It's probably always been in the back of your mind to try an edgy look but you have never been brave enough to actually get down with it because let's face it, it's probably one of the hardest makeup looks to pull off especially if you're not a model walking down the runway.
Now the quick solution to this is to find a balance first between your everyday normal makeup and your idea of edgy makeup. Well, it looks like Jennie from BLACKPINK just gave us the perfect visual representation for this on one of her latest Instagram posts.
Overall, her makeup here is pretty normal and seems easy to recreate. The brows, lipstick and eyeliner are going to be the key points here. There's a certain toughness to her makeup though, and we're going to show you exactly how to achieve this look.
Her skin looks very natural and there's barely any product that fully covers her entire face (that's Korean beauty for you) so the most she probably used is a color correcting powder.
The NWorld NLighten CC Cushion has a dewy finish but doesn't cause your face to get oily. The beauty of it is that it's very lightweight and it blends perfectly with your skin tone while covering most of your blemishes and/or redness which is what you want to achieve. It also helps moisturize your face so that's another added plus.
Her brows are very natural with just the slightest bit of product, but it's still noticeable. Try the Bench Auto Brow Pencil with a triangular tip to save time on shaping your brows.
She has a very subtle shadow all over her upper and lower eyelid that simply serves as an outer glow to her eyes. One swipe of a dark brown shade of Peripera's Ink Fitting Shadow should do the job.
She also fills her entire lower lid with eyeliner which is not a usual thing to do because normally people only line about three-quarters of it but hey, we're going for edgy, right? It's much more easier to use a pencil here than any other type of eyeliner and NYX Cosmetics' Slim Eye Pencil is definitely a must-try.
Don't forget to add some on your upper lid too to really draw out that outline for your eyes.
And now the center of her entire look, the one that really sets the mood is her lips. She's got on a very bright, very dangerous red and you have to pick the perfect lipstick for this or else you won't look so good.
You'll need a deep, bright red shade that almost resembles the color of your blood, and it should have a matte finish but keep your lips moisturized at the same time. Something like the Maybelline Color Sensational Lasting Lipstick should do the trick.
Now you're looking smoking hot with your edgy rebellious look without straying too far away from your normal makeup routine!
