Even if you’re not a fan, you’ve probably heard of superstar quartet BLACKPINK, a K-pop girl group. In addition to realising hit song after hit song, they’re also known to style and beauty icons.
Lucky for us, they’ve revealed the secrets and products behind their signature looks, which are thankfully readily available on the market for purchase! Read on to find out what are the beauty holy grails of Jennie, Lisa, Rosé, and Ji Soo from BLACKPINK.
Beauty products BLACKPINK’s Jennie loves
Jennie’s unique and feline appearance has given her the nickname “human Chanel”, which she emphasises frequently with smoky eyes and nude lips. Here are her top products to help achieve this look.
TOO FACED Natural Love Palette
A mix of skin-like mattes and sparkly glitters, it’s no wonder that Jennie favours this palette that’ll bring her from her days off to stage performances. Preferring warm nude tones over dark ones for daily wear which gives her her signature slightly swollen eye look, get this versatile palette to mimic Jennie’s makeup looks.
Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits
The star turns to liquid lipsticks from Kylie Cosmetics for long hours on set, opting for warm, nude shades like their Candy K, Dazzle, and Harmony. However, Kylie Cosmetics’ products are notoriously difficult to get, so try Giorgio Armani’s Lip Magnets (S$57), which Jennie also featured in an episode of Korean beauty TV show, Get it Beauty.
Retails on Shopee for S$45.
Beauty products BLACKPINK’s Lisa loves
Known for her exotic looks and deep interest in makeup among the four, Lisa adopts a more Western approach to beauty, with blinding highlights, strong eyeshadow, and lip colours to flaunt her doll-like beauty.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
Making waves in the beauty community since its launch, the Ambient Lighting series has a revolutionary formula that gives you the look of having permanent flattering lighting on your face, due to its blurring and light diffusing powders, for smoother skin. In this interview, Lisa says she likes the look of having dewy skin in pictures, which this setting powder, highlighter, and contour trio provides her with, all while setting her base makeup in place.
Retails for S$106 on Sephora.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette
Like a true makeup enthusiast, another one of Lisa’s holy grails is the famed Modern Renaissance palette. A bestselling collection of 14 warm orange, brown, and burgundy shades, you’ll love this one as much as the singer does if you like dramatic smoky eyes with a twist.
Available on Sephora for SGD75.
NARS Satin Lip Pencil
In her solo feature on Get it Beauty, she praises the NARS Satin Lip Pencil for its creamy formula despite the matte finish – and she’s not the only one who loves it: this product has glowing reviews all over the net by users.
Beauty products BLACKPINK’s Rosé loves
BLACKPINK’s main vocal prefers her makeup looking light and pure, which she expresses with a flawless base, coral or pink eyeshadow, and bright lip colours.
MAC Cosmetics Eyeshadow X 9 Palette in Burgundy
Preferring pure-looking colours to her makeup, Rosé opts for the subtler shimmery champagne and burgundy shades in this MAC palette for a more feminine, sweeter look.
Retails for S$72 on Sephora.
Dior Lip Glow
Unlike the rest of the members who love a bright pop of cours on the lips, Rose is partial to sheer washes of colour for a natural look. Dior Lip Glow hydrates the lips while imbuing them with a unique glossy colour for a healthy-looking pout.
Retails for S$50 on Sephora.
Beauty products BLACKPINK’s Ji Soo loves
While the other members are makeup manias, the oldest member of BLACKPINK remains faithful to a good old skincare routine. Being the most traditionally beautiful in South Korea, Ji Soo prefers to sport clean, glowy skin with a pop of colour on the lips.
YSL Beauté Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levres
While matte lips tend to look more mature, glossy stains like this one that she featured in a Get it Beauty episode gives you a youthful, radiant look and won’t flake throughout the day as the formula is more hydrating.
Retails at all YSL boutiques and counters, and on TANGS online store for S$52.
J.One Jelly Pack
A popular product created by A-list actress Ha Ji Won, who’s known for her youthful and virtually flawless skin, it acts as an overnight mask, lightweight moisturiser, and foundation primer. It’s no wonder the busy star favours this over bringing multiple products with her during tours.
Retails for S$26.60 on Shopee.
LUSH Mask of Magnaminty
The secret to Ji Soo’s glass skin? Masking! In the Get it Beauty episode she appeared on, she reveals that she and Jennie both take skincare seriously, and use up to two masks a day to maintain skin health, especially since they’re wearing makeup daily. Apart from her tried-and-true sheet masks, her holy grail is LUSH’s Mask of Magnaminty.
The popular minty, refreshing mask is made with gentle ingredients like soothing and anti-bacterial honey, as well as kaolin clay, which earned its fame for its dirt and oil-absorbing properties.
Retails on LUSH stores and LUSH online store for S$49.
