Though she’s modelled for various luxury brands, such as Chanel and Calvin Klein, the YG Princess often gets praised for being able to pull off more toned-down and effortless girl-next-door looks when she’s not posing on a shoot or performing on stage.

Want to know the secrets to her “no makeup” makeup glam? We’ve got just the tutorial for you!

How to create Jennie’s natural eye look

Step 1: Get an eyeshadow palette with neutral shades

To accentuate your eyes and give it a captivating yet soft look, you’ll want to get a neutral-toned palette with different shades of beige and browns.

The one used in this tutorial is Daisque’s Shadow Palette in “11: Chocolate Fudge.” Alternatively, Canmake Tokyo’s Perfect Multi Eyes Palette in “Almond Mocha” (below) is a great option as well.

Step 2: Start with a light brown base

After applying your base makeup, use a fluffy eyeshadow brush and pack a light brown eyeshadow onto your lids, following your eye shape and dragging it down to your lower lash line for a seamless look.

The next step is to deepen your eyelid crease. By using a flat eyeshadow brush, apply a slightly darker brown shade to the part where your eyelid naturally creases.

Step 3: Create the illusion of deep-set eyes

Even if you don’t have naturally large and almond-shaped eyes like Jennie, you can still accentuate them with eyeshadow! Use a warm cocoa brown colour and apply it in a triangular motion around the outer part of your eyes.

Make sure to blend it out slightly so that there are no harsh lines.

Step 4: Highlight your aegyo-sal

Part of Jennie’s youthful charm comes from her dumpling cheeks and noticeable ageyo-sal, which is the roll of skin right beneath your eyes that frame the lower eyelids.

To accentuate or create the look of it, you’ll want to use a small angled brush to gently apply a medium-toned brown shade onto the region below your aegyo-sal.

Then, using a flat eyeshadow brush, pick up a light beige shadow and apply it to the area right beneath your lower lash line. Dab on the same shade onto the inner corner of your eyes using your fingertip so you’ll look bright and awake.

Step 5: Fill in your brows lightly

While many makeup looks emphasise thick, prominent brows, the approach of natural makeup takes a different stance. The goal here is to create soft, barely-there brows that are devoid of obvious arches.

To do this, fill in your brows lightly with a brown pencil, making sure to follow its natural shape. Here’s one from Etude House. Brush them out once you’re done!

Then, use a dark brown gel liner and create a small wing at the end. Lengthen your lashes by finishing off with two or three coats of brown mascara, such as this one from Majolica Majorca, and you’re done!
