Long, thick, and most importantly, separated—these lashes are all the rage in the K-Pop industry at the moment. Some of the most popular female idols who have sported them are BLACKPINK‘s Lisa…
…IVE‘s Jang Wonyoung…
…and TWICE‘s Nayeon, to name a few.
With the help of YouTube channel COCOCHO, here’s how you can achieve the same look on your own. No professional makeup artist needed!
1. Curl your lashes then brush them in one direction
First, take an eyelash curler and curl your lashes away from your nose.
Grab a clean brush and use zigzag motions to separate them.
2. Apply mascara starting from the inner corners
Next, start applying your mascara from the inner corners of your eyes. Brush them upwards, and don’t worry about the mascara clumping.
3. Use a nail tweezer
To get that separated look, use a nail tweezer to pinch your lashes together. Unlike regular eyebrow tweezers, nail tweezers have a straight tip instead of a diagonal one.
Look for the lashes that grow in the same direction and press them together before the mascara dries. Do one clump at a time.
4. Grab mascara using the tweezer
Rather than applying mascara straight to the lashes, put it on the tweezer instead. This will ensure that the lashes will really stick together.
5. Apply heat
After working so hard on each eye, it’s important to seal everything together so that they stay in place all day. Finish off the look by applying heat using this optional final step.
Called “fire curling,” very carefully light a wooden stick and coat your lashes with them.
And that’s it! You now have perfect K-Pop lashes like your favorite female idols.
