Unleash your inner punk with this sassy look made famous by Jennie Kim from BLACKPINK, and recreated by Nikkie tutorials!


NikkieTutorials recently took to her YouTube to recreate a sweet yet sassy makeup look that the beautiful Jennie Kim rocked in BLACKPINK’s music video for their single ‘Kill This Love’.



This unique look combines the effortlessness of K-beauty with the edgy attitude of their hybridised K-Pop/EDM/Hip-Hop sound.

Whether you’re a die-hard Blink or just a lover of glam, here’s how you can emulate this super hardcore yet ultra-glam look.



The base


Drawing on the techniques of standard K-beauty, you should try to keep to a light coverage, natural foundation and minimal concealer to spot conceal and brighten the undereye area.

Using a wet beauty sponge will make your foundation appear dewier which is exactly what we want to achieve.

Apply your foundation on top of an illuminating primer to create the appearance of glowing skin.

The brows



Use a brow powder and an angled brush to fill in your brows by lining them from the top to tame your natural arch.

Once you have straightened out the top of your brow, you can fill in any sparse areas and even out the bottom.

Use a clear or lightly tinted brow gel on your inner hairs to add some texture and definition. This will also create a more natural appearance.


The eyes



With a bright red eyeshadow, blend the pigment in a V shape on the outer third of the eye and the outer third of the lower lash line. Extend outwards and diffuse edges for a softened yet dramatic look.

Leave the centre of the lid and lower lash line bare and apply the same colour on the inner corner and tear duct.



Pat a gold champagne eyeshadow on the bare areas – that is, the centre of the lid and the middle of the lower lash line.

Then with a gold liquid liner, draw a line directly through the centre of the lid and extend this down to the lower lash line.

Finish the eyes with some mascara and thick accent lashes on the outer half.


The face



Apply a pink peachy blush a little higher than the cheekbones and across the nose for an innocent flushed look.

We recommend: ModelCo Blush Cheek Powder 02 Peach Bellini ($16.95)



Lightly dust a gold champagne coloured highlighter across the forehead, cheeks and along the nose for a radiant, glowing look.


The lips



Line your lips with a nude lip liner to add some definition.

Tap a peach coloured lipstick onto the lips for a subtle touch of colour, then dab a strawberry gloss in the centre.

Finish your look with a spritz of dewy setting spray to lock your makeup in place and melt powders into the skin for a natural skin finish.


Now you’re ready to kill this look and kill this love!
