Radiating girl boss energy wherever she goes, BLACKPINK’s Lisa has experienced a fashion-filled year — from modeling for numerous fashion campaigns to attending star-studded events. Spotted amongst Hollywood royalty at the unveiling of the Bulgari Mediterranea High-Jewelry collection, Lisa once again surpassed expectations. As she rubbed shoulders with fellow Bulgari global ambassadors, the “Money” singer oozed regal glamour in a magnificent black dress. The tip of the iceberg? Makeup that made her eyes stand out from miles away. 

A Modern Take on Hollywood Glamor

The luxury jeweler Bulgari chose Venice to host its annual brand event and present the High-Jewelry and High-End Watch collection, Mediterranea. The presentation reunited global names like Zendaya, Priyanka Chopra, Anne Hathaway, Liu Yifei, and Yang Yang at the Palazzo Ducale. As a brand ambassador, of course, Lisa, was also part of the list.

Fitting for the luxurious Venetian venue, the rapper’s outfit gave a modern nod to old Hollywood glamour. Sitting just off her shoulders, the geometric neckline framed a luxurious emerald-studded necklace. The rich, black gown also featured a show-stopping train and fit Lisa like a glove. 

The Beauty of Contrast

Since Lisa’s outfit and bold jewelry were already a maximalist combination, her makeup followed a minimalist approach. Utilizing a few products to their fullest potential, this beautifully-engineered look can only be described as the beauty of contrast. 

The genius behind all things BLACKPINK beauty, Woosun of Woosun Hair & Makeup, hit a home run once again with Lisa’s outstanding glam. Thankfully, this MUA is not one to gatekeep her secrets and took to social media to give us the lowdown on how to get the look

A Radiant Base

As per Woosun, Lisa’s flawless makeup was achieved with Guerlain Parure Gold Foundation stippled across the face for a radiant and even complexion. With a couple of swipes of STILA Complete Harmony Lip & Cheek Stick, a peachy dewy flush was diffused all over the cheekbones for a healthy, lit-from-within glow.

Diamond-Like Eyes

The eye makeup was the key point of this look. Created with the Chanel Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette, the upper and lower eyelids were lightly contoured with a cement shade. Focusing on the outer corners, charcoal, and mouse brown shadow were delicately placed to give a feline touch to the eye. To add subtle but impactful contrast, pearly white shadow was lightly placed on the center of her upper and lower lids, as well as on the inner corners — adding to the doe-eye effect.

A fan favorite, Urban Decay 24/7 Moondust Eyeshadow in Space Cowboy, was patted on the double eyelid line, creating a beautiful, almost undetectable glimmer in photos. From the inner corner to the outer corner, the rapper’s eyes were etched with Chanel Stylo Yeux Eyeliner in Ébène, to create a Cleopatra-inspired winged liner look. Additionally, her lashes were kept fluffy with a couple of coats of Benefit Cosmetics’ BADgal Bang! Volumizing Mascara

Framing this masterful eye look, Lisa’s brows were lightly filled with Shu Uemura Hard Formula Brow Pencil in a toasty brown shade. The last highlight of this gorgeous eye makeup was a pair of icy gray contacts created by Olens Russian Smoky Gray Lenses. Matching the jewels glittering from her necklace, Lisa’s eyes shone so brightly that they looked like precious gems.

A Glowing Smile

In harmony with her glowing base makeup and eye shadow, Lisa sported glossy lips. Giving some volume and shape, HUDA BEAUTY Lip Contour 2.0 Automatic Matte Lip Pencil in Honey Beige was applied to Lisa’s heart-shaped pout. Finally, a light layer of N°1 De Chanel Lip and Cheek Balm in Vital Beige gave an elegant sheen to the artist’s iconic smile. 

Resembling fashion icons of the past, Lisa wore a top knot bun with cocoa brown bangs warming up her features. As the final nod to the 1920s, ornate turquoise teardrop earrings adorned her ears.

Simple and accessible are not words normally used to describe looks that celebrities flaunt on the red carpet. Yet, Lisa’s glam — hailing from the land of seemingly unrelatable opulence — is refreshingly easy to recreate and features products that you can find in your local beauty shop. When creating your next makeup look, remember that there is always beauty in contrast and simplicity can be next-level beautiful too.
