Although it’s been a trending color for years, orange is officially back in season. And as usual, we can always spot the trendiest colors being worn by our favorite idols. Orange can be a scary color for some people, so why not find some inspiration in the trendiest idols? From natural looks to glizty shadows, Kpop Idols themselves have proved that orange is one of the most versatile colors of the makeup world. Check through the gallery to see these Kpop Idols’ orange makeup looks, and see what you can use!
One of the first idols that come to my mind when I think of orange makeup is definetely BlackPink’s Jennie. Blackpink’s only had a couple of songs since their debuts, but I think she’s rocked orange in every one of their music videos. In the first and last looks, Jennie keeps the orange screaming through her whole look. She uses a stronger orange hue in her eye makeup in the first look, and in the last look, she uses a softer orange throughout her whole look, including her lips. The ombre lips help to make the orange seem less out-of-place. In the second picture, she uses a similar shade of orange in the third, uses a bit of pink to make the orange seem softer. Great for those that don’t want to make too much of a dramatic difference.
Rose shows how to use the orange in a darker look. Strong eyeliner is the main focus of her look, but the hints of brown, orange and pinky-peach eye colors help to blur the strong eyeline in with the rest of her face. Instead of going straight from black eyeliner to her pale complexion, the brown, orange and pink make a nice transition-shade from the liner to the skin. A good tip for those wanting to do a smoky cat-eye.
Lee Sung Kyung
Even though she’s not technically an idol, I thought that it would only be right to include Lee Sung Kyung. Since she’s also a model, there’s no way that she’s going to miss a hot trend. In this look, the actress uses a lip color that has orange and red mixed in. It’s a great idea for those who just want to transition into the orange trend. It’s also good for people who don’t think they look particularly look their best with a straight-out orange.
We can’t miss the hottest trends without showing the “most beautiful face in the world,” for two years in a row! (I think, it might even be more.) Nana is well-known in South Korea as well as internationally for her stunning visuals. It’s only right that she appears in one of our examples to follow. Here, she focuses the orange eyeshadow on her undereyes, or aegyossal. She mixes the orange in with pink onto her top lid, and it looks like a bit of orange was added to the inner and outer edges of her lips. Try following this style and focus a lot of the orange on your undereyes. If you don’t want to go straight out orange with the lips, you can follow her example and use a peach/pink lip color in the middle of your lips. Then, take an orange eyeshadow and use a brush to pat some onto the inner and outer edges of your lips. It’ll be the most subtle orange lip you can get.
Now, time to get some insiprations from male idols! Jimin also used the orange heavily in this look. The orange eyeshadow is darker on the outer corners, and slowly fades out as he gets closer to the bridge of his nose. It looks like he used an orange tint for his lip color as well.
I’m going to combine both Jisoo and Seungcheol’s orange makeup looks, since they both carry the same general point. Seventeen in general hasn’t really worn much heavy makeup. (I mean after their debut) So, I thought that their makeup point would be really useful to viewers who don’t usually add a ton of eyeshadow. They both have pretty clean eyes, but their lips both have an orange hue to them. If a ton of makeup isn’t your thing, remember that even having a lip color can add a lot more life and dimension to your usual look.
Which orange look do you think you’ll be trying out next time?
