Every girl needs two things: 1) a perfect pair of jeans, 2) a perfect black mini dress — and here’s mine!
I actually have two black mini dresses, but the other one is a bit too loose, and doesn’t flatter my body. When I say ‘perfect’, I mean, the moment you put it on, you know it’s the one!
Please be generous with liking, tweeting, or hyping this look~! Thank you ^^
The makeup came out in all sort of different lightings, but none were the right one. Isight on my Mac ended up giving me the most accurate colors (third pic from last, end of post)!
This look is inspired from a million different places, but mainly I’ve been wanting to do it for the longest time as a tribute to Yoon EunHye, my absolute favorite Korean actress, who recently released a new movie “My Mini Black Dress“!
I love this picture so much! I love how they have no accessories on at all — all a girl needs is her mini black dress!
Makes me wonder if I shouldn’t have went for the chic look instead of the natural happy-go-round look. XD
I quite like Yoo Ina (유인나; on left) too after watching Sunday Heroes (영웅호걸). I only knew about Hanbyul (right) from her interviews together with Yoon EunHye. She’s Seven’s girlfriend of 10 years! T_T I’ll have to accept it. I like Seven a lot but I’m not a huge fangirl type for him. They make a cute couple. ^^

The new orange trend is everywhere, in both fashion and make up, but for a long time, I never saw any orange makeup look that I really liked. Sandra Park’s orange eyeshadow + orange lipstick ads for Etude was just too much orange (I actually think orange eyes + orange lips are a terrible match!). Yoon EunHye’s orange shadow (pictures above) is nice but just doesn’t pop out enough.
I’ve seen a lot more looks but either the eyeshadow and orange lip color didn’t match, or the orange was just unflattering because it’s not an easy color for Asians to pull off. To be honest, I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to take a ride on the orange wagon.
I finally found the perfect orange makeup look when I saw Shin Mina on the April issue of Sure. I actually don’t really like Shin Mina, but I liked the natural rusty copper brown eye makeup, glossy eyelids, peach blush, and orange lipstick.

The lighting in this picture is the most accurate to how the makeup looks!
As you can see, the lips were a complete fail! I bought the Etude House Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips (#4, miss tangerine tangerine) specifically to do this look and the pictures from Sandra Park’s ads are totally misleading! The lipstick is way too sheer. It’s even worse when I tried totally wiping out my lips with concealer and then applying this lipstick, I just look like a zombie with decaying lips. I don’t know how many layers she put on to get that look, but after about 3 coats, it looked very messy.
I bet no one noticed, but I also put lip gloss on my eyelids to get the gloss she has on her eyes (which is hard to notice, but it’s really glossy). However, it was way too sticky and melted away my eyeshadow and the top of my eyelashes kept sticking to it. Eventually the mascara from the top of my lashes smudged onto the lipgloss too!
I ended up using a Q-tip to remove some gloss closest to my eyelids. It would’ve been much better if I applied the lipgloss a bit above my eyelids, but I usually don’t try out these looks beforehand. I just do them right before I shoot, hence the mishaps here and there, but I really should’ve tried the lipstick out first, so I could’ve waited and gotten the right one instead! T_T
I remember the Etude Miss Tangerine line had 2 oranges, one sheer (which I bought probably thinking I can use it more for everyday) and one brighter and more pigmented. I’m gonna check it out again next time I go to Etude. I’m determined to find that perfect orange lipstick at a reasonable price!
