First of all, I would like to apologize for my absence. I went on vacation with my laptop and camera in tow, fully prepared to continue blogging as I was there. But then the wifi router at my rental house broke, and the repair guy never came…
Just my luck. No wonder that’s my favorite movie/one of my favorite songs.
Anyway, today I finally return with the makeup I did for all of my “FIRE” posts. I still have a couple of outfits left to photograph that keep getting delayed because of rain/my photographer[sister] being in New York City for an internship, but I promise they will get done and put up eventually. In the meantime, though, I have “Forever Young” to get out. And then “Save Me.” And then the concept photos for the album.
Now let’s get started.
Bangtan Style: How to Do Your Makeup Like BTS’ “FIRE”
Here is the inspiration for the makeup that I did:
RIP Jin. And that blouse. Don’t think it’s iron safe.
Now here is the makeup that I did:
Neutral skin, pink lips, barely lined eyes: That’s exactly how the guys rolled for this MV, which is nice because it’s honestly very easy to do.
For the skin, I started with an oil-free primer followed by some color-correcting BB cream. (Which is technically a CC cream? Idk.) After my usual three concealer routine — peach-based pot, yellow-based cream, white brightening stick (#darkcircles) — I sprayed everything with a setting water, then set it with two different powders: one specifically for concealer followed by one for the rest of my face. After that, another spray of setting water and some light contouring/blush finished off the skin.
Then I moved on to the eyes. Take a closer look at them before I tell you what I did:
Really, I didn’t do much. Just some black liner on my water and tight lines followed by mascara, and voila! You’ve got the look.
Obviously, feel free to use more liner if you like, but I kept it simple since that’s what the boys did. Also, shouts to the mascara on my lower left eyelid. I’m a pro at makeup. Really.
Now here’s what it looked like from the sides:
And finally, the lips:
I chose a very light pink lip crayon and dabbed it onto my lips to add a slight, natural amount of color. After applying, I blotted it with my finger in order to make the color a little more matte. The boys have uncharacteristically matte lips in the video, so I wanted to also have some matte-ness in my look.
Tangent: I’m just glad their lips weren’t as matte as they were in N.O. Just one word for that: Chapstick.
Until next time ❤
