Lipstick Shades on Your Favourite Girl Group Members

Lipstick Shades on Your Favourite Girl Group Members

Lipstick is just about our favourite beauty product and that small stick can be that essential gamechanger.

According to Statista, 119.97 million women in the U.S. used lipstick and lip gloss in 2017 and some 900 million lipsticks are sold each year. Contributing to the whopping US $13billion beauty industry of Korea, girl group members, models and actresses are shaping the K-beauty trends. In the competitive music industry, girl-group members are all about the looks – how cute and how sexy they can be – their lip colours play and amazing part to shaping their image.

I look to some of the representative girl group members who each carries a lipstick shade or style like they own it.

Matte

Hwasa of Mamamoo is carries an “unconventional” makeup look in korea, and befitting of her “ssen eonnie” (tough girl) image. Her makeup style can be identified more closely in western cultures and is in the likes of Kylie Jenner.

Her tanned skin goes well in matte nude colours as well as shades of brown.

Products like the Illamasqua Antimatter Lipstick – Binary and Illamasqua Vanitas Matte Lipstick fit her like a T.

Oranges, bright red

Irene of Red Velvet is the well-known beauty from Daegu, Korea and her snow-white like skin and beauty has won the hearts of many men (and women).

Being one of the hottest girl group members in South Korea, Irene carries a bright orange / red lip best – suitable for her fair skin tone. The Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipstick in Poppy Days or Inc.redible Listen Hard Girl Neon Lip Paint in I’m Hot RN carried on her exudes a refreshing, zesty pop of brightness.

Pink

The members of twice is known to be cute and lovable – there is no doubt to their popularity and “pink” has got to be the girls’ colour. As seen on Chaeyeon of twice, lipstick shades like the Lord & Berry Matte Crayon Lipstick in Manifique or PIXI Mattelast Liquid Lip in Prettiest Pink enhance their adorableness and youthfulness. Pink has the effect of making you younger – it’s no wonder Twice members are rocking this colour so well.

Red

Sun-mi is the sexy icon of today’s K-pop industry, with captivating hits like Gashina, Full Moon and 24 Hours, this ex- Wonder Girls member is stealing hearts with her additive dance moves, grooves, beats and personality.

Not many women dares to pull off a red lip – shades like Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturising Lipstick in Red Door Red and Daniel Sandler Micro-Bubble Lipstick in Titanium Micro Red gives off a strong and bold vibe. Red is also an ultra classic and empowering colour and women should definitely own at least one and wear it from time to time.

Gradient Lips

The gradient lip trend was popularized in Korea a few years back and is now known as a signature lip trend not just in Korea but in Asia and beyond. The gradient lip is achieved with application of a light lipstick colour and topping it up with a darker shade just in the centre portion to achieve a gradient effect, as seen on Jisoo of BlackPink.

As the trend is now well in its years, many makeup producers have made it much easier to achieve a gradient lip, like the By Terry Twist On Lipstick in Peach and Tangerine and Bourjois Sweet Duo Lipstick which essentially combines two shades into one stick, for you to achieve and instant gradient in one swipe.

My Lips but better

Jenny of Black Pink exudes amazing charms with her puffy cheeks and huge eyes. Her doll-like features and plump lips give her the luxury to carry off just any kind of lip colour; but I think she carries MLBB lip shades the best.

I’d see her owning lipsticks like the Perricone MD No Lipstick Lipstick in Pink or Rimmel Kate Nudes Lipstick in Shade 45 – nude and warm pink tones that accentuates her edgy but pure looks.
