Tutorial: f(x) Luna - Red Light Inspired Tutorial

hi kpoppers!

I have an exciting tutorial for you guys! 

Charmaine from {charrmyn} asked me if I'd like to do an impromptu makeup tutorial collab of f(x) Red Light MV with Emily from {emilymarysia}, Mindy from {mymychen} and April from {justsoapril} and I was like 'of course!' I haven't been keeping up to date with the kpop world in a long time. But when I saw other bbloggers making tutorials on f(x)'s Red Light MV, I just had to watch it. I fell in love with their makeup and entire concept of the MV! So great job SM Entertainment!!

I decided to do Luna's makeup for this collab. I was inspired by her intense teaser images that was released before the video came out. 




Like seriously. Natural eye makeup on her right eye and an intense blue and black smokey eye on the left? Most, if not all of the members rocked a look like this in the MV. Luna is beauts and matches so well with her dark blue hair as well! So without further ado, let's get into the tutorial!

Face Tutorial:
Luna has a flawless face, obviously. So, creating the perfect canvas is a must.


Face Makeup {in order of use}:

1) Rimmel Stay Matte Primer
2) Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit
3) Skinfood Salmon Darkcircle Concealer
4) NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder
5) Kiko Make Up Milano - Sun Bronzing Blush in 100 Marine Coral
6) Benefit High Beam


The key to her face, is her smooth, white skin which can be achieved using BB cream and concealer, and her facial features defined by a bronzer and bronzy rosy blush. She didn't seem to have the regular blush on her cheeks, but rather blush in the hollow of her cheeks that helped define her overall facial features. So I focused on that for Luna's Face Makeup!

PLUS: Fill in your eyebrows as usual, following your natural brow shape.

ignore my eye...scary...

{PS...anyone want to teach me how to eyebrow? Because I suck. Full fringe bangs are amazing because I don't even have to worry about my eyebrows... ><}

Right Natural Eye Tutorial:

The right eye {or left eye if you choose}, is meant to be a sort of "No Makeup" Makeup eye. So, natural brown eyeshadows are a must. 



Right Eye Makeup {in order of use}:

1) Lorac Pro Palette {using Cream}
2) Lorac Pro Palette {using Taupe}
3) Lorac Pro Palette {using Black}
4) Kanebo Kate Slim Gel Pencil Eyeliner
4) Covergirl Lash Blast Fusion Mascara 

{Note: I have hooded monolid eyes, so please apply eyeshadow accordingly to your natural eye shape}


{I forgot to mention - tight line your eyes after step 3!}


The reason why I decided against using gel eyeliner or liquid eyeliner for this eye is because matte black eyeshadow is much more natural! 

Left Smokey Eye Tutorial:

The left eye {or the right eye if you choose} is the main focus of Luna's look. It's a dark, smokey eye with a blue liner accent on the bottom lash line. I find this look to be both sexy and daring. ;) I've never wore dark eyeshadow like this before and after this tutorial, I'm totally up for experimenting! Her makeup look is actually pretty simple to execute. 


Right Eye Makeup {in order of use}:

1) Lorac Pro Palette {using Black}
2) Lorac Pro Palette {using Espresso}
3) Wet n Wild Color Icon Eye Pencil in Aqua Blue
4) e.l.f.'s Little Black Beauty Book Volume II 
5) L'Oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner
5) Covergirl Lash Blast Fusion Mascara 

{Note: I have hooded monolid eyes, so please apply eyeshadow accordingly to your natural eye shape}


The things to mention about this eye is the two wings, one on the upper lash line and one on the bottom lash line. >< I'm still in the beginner stages on making wings, so I'm not an expert person to ask. However, following the natural cat eye for the upper lash line, and following the blue eyeliner you made in step 4, should help with the wings!

Blending is also a big key especially for Step 2! Using black eyeshadow, is an extreme pain since it only takes one bad swipe to end up with a {literal} black eye. So blend blend blend! {I apologize if my eye looks sort of black eye-ish as well. >< I'm still practicing!!} Monolids are so hard to work with :( 

Lips Tutorial:

She had a sort of dark burgundy gradient lip in the MV and teaser images. Unfortunately...I did not bring any burgundy lip colors back home for the summer, so I settled with a pinky gradient lip~ 


I know...I apologize for the bad concealer and blending. >.<  But to make this:

1) Conceal your natural lip color using either lip concealer or the left over BB cream for your face. 
2) Use a burgundy lipstick and/or lip tint only on the center of your lips. 
3) Blend it out. 
4) Optional: Use a lipgloss to give your lips more plump!

And we're done!
Time for some comparison photos!





Huehuehue!
I apologize for scarring you guys with my attempt at sexy OTL

I apologize if it doesn't look 100% similar...but it's an inspired look~ I wouldn't mind going out with this look. {Of course having the same eye look on both eyes...} I went a bit cray taking pictures...so enjoy some more of my vain self~ I tried to bring out my inner sexy kpop idol in me! LOL





I'll end with my favorite picture.


 My hair looks amaaaazing! <3
Gosh...I'm seriously so conceited. I need help.
^_^ But I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! And make sure to watch f(x) Red Light Music Video!! 
{it's umm...amazing!}


Until next time, 








PS: Do you guys like my new blog design? I still need to make a header and add a bunch of mini codings, but I really like it! 

I'm also debating whether or not to CHANGE my blog url name. >< chocobunnii13 is sounding really...childish? to me lately, and I want to change it to something more...serious? If that makes sense. :) I know a lot of people know me as chocobunnii though...so I'm not too sure yet. What do you guys think?

    1. Thank you~ I think adding a color on the bottom lash line is perfect for summer as well~ I might try this, except without the black smokey eye for summer~

  13. Well, you definitely pull the yin-yang look off! I'm not a big fan of the half / half make up looks in Red Light, but I really like the song! The tutorial you did is really great and comprehensible! I think I'd totally try it out if I wanted to go for something really dramatic but I'm a little scared of really dark eyeshadows. :)

    1. Thank you Elina~ ^-^ this was my first time actually trying out the yin-yang sort of look~ Trust me though...in real life, i would never walk outside with only one heavy eye. And I've never tried dark eyeshadow until this look~ And I'm seriously willing to try more~ ^_- You should try out the dark eyeshadows~ I'm sure a smokey eye would look so pretty on you~

  14. I haven't heard of Luna but this looks so cool! I'd never thought of sticking to one eye with the heavy makeup, it makes such a statement. Great tutorial :)

    1. Hehe~ Luna is from the kpop girl group called, f(x). I'm not too familiar with f(x) in general, but they're pretty good at singing~ ^_^ It was the makeup look inspired by their Red Light Music Video so that explains the heavy makeup on one eye and natural on the other. I think their MV was about the standards of beauty actually~ Thanks Eleanor~
