2ne1 Dara I Need A Girl MV Inspired Makeup

I’m not really a Big Bang fan but I really love Taeyang’s song
 “I need a Girl”.^^
He got two music video for it, both of it features 2ne1’s Sandara Park.

I love the second one, which is the dance version,
Taeyang wearing white, and Dara wearing black.

YG is the most genius out of all the major talent company/agency
in South Korea for producing unique and fierce talents.
Don't get me wrong, I love SMENT,
but when it comes to music,
concept, stage presence, talent and fashion sense,
I'm hands down to YG artists.
2ne1 & Big Bang
They can even promote successfully as single artists,
and a bomb when they're together.

All the individual songs from Big Bang were good,
particularly G-Dragon's,

but I'm loving Taeyang's single so much.

This is one of my most played songs of all time,
and maybe if he sang it in english
he can even beat Usher and Chris Brown.

Although Dara is not a graceful dancer, she's a pure beauty and any weird makeups,
hairstyles and clothes thrown on her turned out to be really good.

Her clothes for the MV, I found it thru

Where to Purchase:

I want to recreate one of her looks when she was focused 
while G Dragon was rapping together with Taeyang.
It’s a simple bright and fun look which is wearable.
You can even wear it everyday for work, or even in school.
Minimal makeup was used. 
Face base, good foundation,
 black eyeliner & eyeshadow plus shimmer,  
nude lips, then voila!!

After School Uee Ojakgyo Brothers Press Conference Inspired Makeup

KBS has a new weekend drama
called Ojakgyo Brothers and
my mom and I are officially a big fan.

 She's been constantly telling me to look for DVDs of the drama but unfortunately it is still currently airing in South Korea, with 50 episodes I think, so it will end by January 2012.

I'm not a big fan of Uee but I can say she's a good actress. 
I've seen her first as an evil villain
from my favorite drama You're Beautiful as Yoo He Yi...
Since she's been doing bad things to Go Mi Nam
and messing up with our beloved Hwang Tae Kyung,
I hated her. LOL.
As of now I'm not sure if the role of Baek Ja Eun
 (a rich girl and a protagonist)
really fits her for her new drama,
coz sometimes she still has the best expression of an antagonist,
 but hell yeah she can act so I can't do something about it.

One reason why I watch this drama is because of the third brother,
a police investigator/officer named Hwang Tae Hee.

Actor's name is Joo won,
popularly known as Gu Ma Jun from Baker King.
Well, most of my tumblr friends and tumblr addicts
have the same reason for watching the drama. LOL
Some says they're like this everytime Tae Hee will appear:

The interesting part of the drama is
whenever Uee and Joo Won see each other, they fight.

and more fights

So that's a lot of fun.^^

For the drama's promotion, the casts held a press conference at Imperial Palace Hotel in Seoul and I really like Uee's makeup and dress.

I'll be imitating her look in a minute, so yeah. hahah!!

 The sponsors of her clothes, heels and accessories I found it on tumblr (credits to nanaplayz)
for her ring, she's wearing Thalia.
 Flower Ring ₩98,000

for her dress,
it's Adolfo Dominguez Grey Dress AD Spring/Summer 2011

For her heels Jinny Kim: Aqua Heels ₩358,200

Makeup time!!!

and me.. LOL

Warning: I'm not trying to look like Uee or saying that I look like her. 
I'm imitating her makeup, not her exact facial features. get it???
I don't even have fluffy cheeks.

Purederm BB cream
NYC Smooth Skin Pressed face Powder
Sugar Skull Cosmetics 15 concealer palette 

Sugar Skull Cosmetics 88 Earth Palette
shades used are: mostly browns and blacks
(any dark brown and black eyeshadow will do)
Revlon Eyelash Curler
Avon Glimmersticks Eyeliner in Black
Avon Extralast Mascara

Sugar Skull Cosmetics 10 Glow & Blush Palette
(used the bright pink one)

Revlon Pink Pout

If my luck will come,
I'll make sure to look for this Ojakgyo Farm
in Gyeonggido somewhere in South Korea.

I have another homework for my friends, it's how to look like this:

Tiffany. The boys MV.
I think it's goin' to be really hard.
