During Women’s History Month, EnVi’s beauty team decided to recreate the beauty looks of women in K-pop. A number of women idols made bold statements through their makeup. Ellie (@filthydinosaurs) and Taylor (@taylor_louisem) from the beauty team show their favorite looks from some of your favorite idols!

Women’s Month Looks


On February 23rd, Sunmi released her single “Tail.” The song explores bold themes of women empowerment and rebirth. Using motifs from pop-culture icons like Catwoman, Sunmi shows a new side to herself in her music video. 

One of Sunmi’s signature looks features bold red lips and two gems positioned at the corners of her lips. The styling is bold, yet very simple. Throughout the music video, Sunmi uses variations of the look—a staple piece to this era of her career. The two gems by Sunmi’s lips add extra edge to her look. 

Sunmi’s look can be easily recreated with gems from a local store and red lipstick. Whether you would like to wear the look without a full face of makeup on or use your favorite routine, Sunmi’s “Tail” look has become one of my own personal favorites.

Women’s Month Looks


I totally resonated with this look. It’s a comical nod at looking fabulous while feeling a little emotional, which to me, is pretty on-brand. Not only did the look fit cohesively within the theme of the entire music video, continuing the glamorous and decadent designs of the set and costume, but it has become a very iconic look too.

Red Velvet’s stylists stepped out of just ‘regular’ face makeup and started to play around with textures and designs—something I LOVE! The glitter tears trickle down Seulgi’s face, not only add sparkle, but also—less noticeably—highlight her sultry eyes. It’s super playful, which complements the fun space-buns she wears, and also matches the almost mocking lyrics of “Psycho.”

This look was incredibly fun to re-create and extremely easy for others to rock, no matter your makeup abilities! It could be worn on a zoom party, for “the gram” or, when it’s safe, to festivals. If you choose to recreate this look, make sure to use glitter with caution, using makeup grade glitter. Also, make sure to tag us on social with the hashtag #EnVi and our tag @ncity_mag.
