Look #1: Lisa’s smoky eyes

A truly mesmerising look, the music video opens with Lisa catching your eye with her blinged-out eyewear and bright turquoise hair. On closer inspection, you notice a soft smoky eye in earth tones with a tinge of amethyst that accentuates her peepers. The eyes are further enhanced with an exaggerated winged liner, applied close to the lash-line, and is completed with a sweep of lengthening mascara for sky-high lashes. Best part about this look? It’s subtle enough to wear to the office, minus the eyewear and coloured hair of course.

Look #2: Rosé goes Blackpink

As you go through the music video, you’ll notice that the makeup takes literal inspiration from the group’s name, Blackpink. And here, Rosé is both regal and elegant in this look.

The bold fuchsia eyeshadow is paired with a black winged eyeliner that not only defines the eye, but also keeps the overall look clean while reducing the appearance of puffiness that the use of pink eyeshadows can sometimes result in. A rose-gold shimmer shadow is also applied along the lower lash-line for extra sparkle. And to match her rose-gold hair, Rosé’s brows get a softer look with a cool auburn hue.

Look #3: Jisoo and Jennie’s glitter eyes

A Spring 2019 makeup trend, glitter makes its presence felt in the Blackpink MV with Jisoo and Jennie showing us two easy ways to wear it. As applying glitter all over can get messy, keep the look clean by using it as an alternative to your usual eyeliner - Jennie has hers as a winged eyeliner on the top lid while Jisoo applies hers close to both the top and bottom lash-line. This instantly defines the eyes while giving them an extra twinkle. And instead of the usual silver or gold, try a multi-coloured or holographic glitter eyeliner. A dewy complexion and pretty-in-pink lips complete the look as modern-day Aphrodites.

Look #4: Lisa as Gwen Stefani’s Hollaback Girl

With her long grey hair in box braids, cropped top and baggy bottoms, Lisa is a 2019 take on Gwen Stefani’s Hollaback Girl. The strong look is complete with a bold lip (instead of Stefani’s signature red, Lisa sports a youthful raspberry-plum pout), rimmed eyes and a fierce attitude to match.

Look #5: Jennie as Lara Croft

There is no denying that Angelina Jolie is still very much associated with the character Lara Croft. But in her cropped top, military-esque pants and combat boots, Jennie is Lara Croft 2019 personified.

And like Lara Croft who is always busy battling the bad guys, Jennie keeps her makeup look simple and fuss-free with a soft neutral smoky eye and a subtle winged liner. To finish, a single rhinestone is placed in the inner corner of each eye, a symbol of the confidence she radiates.

Look #6: Lisa goes neon

Lisa is the true MVP of this MV as she seamlessly morphs from one look into another.

There’s nothing more eye-catching than a neon pink eye and lip (besides Blackpink’s sleek and synchronised dance moves, of course). The fluorescent hue in the shape of an exaggerated cat-eye flick with an extended tail on Lisa’s lids and as a matching lip colour is guaranteed to make anyone the centre of attention. As a finishing touch, Lisa goes full blonde compete with blunt bangs. This is definitely one look that says “Go bold, or go home”.

And to complement Lisa’s neon pink hue, Jennie matches with her own unique pink-themed makeup. The look is given a modern Harlequin-esque vibe with a strip of white down the middle of the eye, that extends from the top to the bottom lid. Here, a vibrant magenta is applied to the inner and outer corners of Jennie’s eyes with a neutral pink-peach hue at the centre as an extra glow.

Look #8: Jisoo’s shimmer pink eyeshadow

None of that saccharine sweet pink here as Jisoo rocks a pink-purple shimmer version in this look. The shadow is applied to both the top lid and along lower lash line, encasing the eye and creating a full cat-eye flick. To enhance this bright-eyed look, a lighter pink shimmer eyeshadow is applied to the centre of the lids. Her burnt-red wavy locks complement this powerful look. Surprisingly though, lips are given a feminine touch with a blush-pink lipstick.

Look #9: Rosé’s sunset eyes

It looks like Rosé is getting ready for Summer with this look. Channelling a Spring 2019 beauty trend, hues of copper, bronze, orange and gold are blended together to mimic the warm glow of a sunset. And when paired with a loose hair braid, it’s the perfect look to get geared up for the hotter months ahead.

Look #10: Lisa as Chun Li

Complete with two braided hair buns, Lisa pulls off the Chun Li look with aplomb. Her doe-eyed peepers are accentuated with a winged liner and what makes the look unique is that they are lined with not one but two eyeliners - black and iridescent green.

The black is an uber thin line that is placed as close to the lash-line as possible with a flick that extends outwards. This is then topped with an iridescent green liner for a glamorous finish. Don’t forget to sweep lots of mascara for dramatic lashes. The rest of the face is kept clean save for a soft rosewood shade on the lips.
