K-pop group Blackpink recently dropped a new song called "How You Like That," and its music video not only has been viewed more than 300 million times but has also inspired fans all over the world to recreate the stunning makeup featured it in.
In a new video interview with Allure Korea, Blackpink's go-to makeup artist, Lee Myeong-Seon aka Maeng, shared behind-the-scenes stories on how the beloved looks came to be.
Turns out, members Jisoo, Rosé, Lisa, and Jennie are vocal about how they want their makeup to be. "Usually, the members talk about what they want to do," Maeng revealed in the interview. "We've been working together for a long time, and we've already tried so many looks." Here's a deeper look at some of the looks they had thoughts on.
Because the hair, outfits, and set in the music video were so colorful, Maeng strayed away from rainbow accents in favor of geometrical and 3D ones, like Jisoo's dots. Maeng shared they were actually Jisoo's idea. She brought references to the shoot for the teasers, and the look worked out so well that it was used in the music video, too.
To create them for the teasers, Maeng drew on the dots with a black eyeliner pencil before going over them with a liquid liner. However, small, black circular gems were adhered for the music video because they were more noticeable on camera.
