Everyone is still trying to learn how to do Jennie's chic and sexy smokey eye makeup, but don't worry because we got you! Here are a few tips that'll help you achieve Jennie's Lara Croft inspired look.
1. Build Your Base with Foundation
Almost every makeup look begins with foundation! VT Cosmetics x BTS Collection's Glorious Gloria Powderation Foundation is the perfect partner to build your base with, it is a full coverage foundation that will still give you a natural glow that's similar to Jennie's look.
2. The Secret of the Universe: Concealer
Tarte Cosmetics' Shape Tape Concealer is a renowned holy grail item, just ask any makeup guru on YouTube! Use a little bit to conceal some dark shadows under the eyes and any blemishes if necessary.
3. Liquid Highlight For That Dewy Look
Pro-tip! Apply a liquid highlighter before setting your foundation and concealer. Benefit's High Beam Liquid Highlight is a crowd favorite. It blends well and gives you that popping shine that'll capture anyone's attention.
4. Powder is Your Savior
Swipe a little Ultra HD Pressed Powder by Makeup For Ever to lock your base in but remember not to go overboard since you still want to achieve that dewy finish!
5. Eyebrows for Days
Jennie's chic and charismatic look is all thanks to her brows. Benefit's triple combo will surely help you achieve the same look. First, draw in your brows using the Goofproof Eyebrow Pencil, then fill in any gaps with the Foolproof Brow Powder. Lastly, add a lighter brown highlight color with the 3D Brow Tone Brow Enhancer.
6. Smokey Eyes In Your Area
To recreate Jennie's smokey look, use Urban Decay's Naked Reloaded Palette. First, lightly apply the shade "bucked" on the crease then add "boundaries" on top to create dimension. Using your fingertip, generously pat "distilled" on your entire lid but pay attention to applying it closer to the lash line, do the same with "dreamweaver" but focus it more on the center of your eyelids. Lastly, use "distilled" plus "boundaries" once again on the lower lash line to complete the eyes.
7. Let's Kill This Love with Eyeliner
To gain an edge above the rest, line your eyes with the Super Tempting Glitter Eyeliner by VT Cosmetics x BTS!
8. Pop On A Blush With a Pop of Color

9. Finish It With A Sinner Lips
