One of the most terrible makeup disasters was this horrible makeup look of Wendy. Appearing with this makeup, she became the center of attention not due to her loveliness as usual but due to the complete horrific appearance.
Looking at this picture, people hardly recognize Wendy. They rather see a Peking opera actress who just got back from her show. Wendy’s face had to carry a ton of foundation and powder, both are in a much whiter shade, just as white as the shirt she’s wearing. Also, the eyeliners and eyeshadows were too thick and bold. Wearing a black bob wig, Wendy looks even more hilarious, even scary at the same time.
When attending a music show in Thailand, Luna made fans panic as she appeared with completely failed makeup. At first, when looking at these photos, people hardly recognized Luna. The foundation was too white and patchy. Obviously, Luna chose the wrong shade for her skin tone, over applied powder and forgot to touch up her neck. Therefore, we can easily see the complete contrast between her face and neck and it looks like she was wearing a mask.
Her oddly thick eyebrows and the popping pink blush do not look natural at all. The blonde hair even worsened the overall look because it was so stiff and had a yellowish tone to it. Like things weren’t bad enough, her choice of the fuschia pink dress added more terribleness to the appearance. Everything is just so wrong. Needless to say, This image of Luna went viral after the performance.
People didn’t understand why SM let her do her own makeup when attending a big music show like that. Some people joked that with this look, Luna can cast a horror movie.
3. Yeri (Red Velvet)
Yeri was also in a similar miserable situation. Putting on a weird makeup look, she showed up at the airport and scared a good amount of fans. The camera’s flashlight literally exposed the failed makeup looks in detail. Yeri obviously used a much brighter shade of foundation, and also overused face powder that made her skin look extra matte. The blush shade was also too vibrant, not natural. It seemed like Yeri was too rushed so she forgot to entirely cover her forehead with foundation.
This wrong makeup also made her face look a little chubbier. There was literally no contouring, and her eyes seemed to be five times smaller because of the stiff and terrible mascara, there was also barely any eyeshadow. Her lipstick would have looked better if not on top of that chalky foundation.
4. SanDara Park (former of 2NE1)
Dara Park was the visual of 2NE1 since their debut, she is recognized as one of the most beautiful goddesses of Kpop. Dara can slay almost all makeup concepts, from Korean natural makeup to swag and heavy ones. However, Dara once startled netizens when appearing with a very weird makeup look. Her red eyebrows were too thick and didn’t go well with her hair color, many people didn’t understand this concept. Some people said it looks like Dara let a random kid draw her eyebrows with red crayons.
Moreover, the eye makeup was too excessive and heavy with those fake-looking eyelashes and the bright contact lens, they made Dara look fierce and unnatural, it looked like she was frowning in every picture. Dara definitely would never look back at these photos again.
5. Yeji (ITZY)
Appeared in a music program, Yeji disappointed fans with her failed makeup. Besides the obvious overly white foundation, people can barely see any other product on her face. From the lipstick, the blush to the eye makeup, all are too pale.
What’s more, her forehead was not fully covered. Maybe her makeup artist tried to contour her forehead but completely failed. Also, her neck wasn’t touched up at all, it was two tones darker than her face. Clearly, this is not a good makeup look for any event.
Being famous for her seductive and sexy style, still, there were many times HyunA made fans panic when she appeared with hilarious makeup looks. In these photos, her foundation didn’t match well with her real skin tone, which is much tanner.
It seems like HyunA really loves bright red lipsticks since she often wears them on stage and in daily life. However, this time the red lipstick didn’t do HyunA’s beauty any justice because, combining with the chalky foundation, this lipstick shade suddenly looks so extra.
Also, the thick lip liner makes it look like she had a lip injection, which is not natural. The eye makeup was also terrible, especially the bright blue contact lens. Bright lens colors always make you look like you’re angry. Additionally, the lower mascara was too thick, making her eyes smaller. Many people were a bit frightened looking at these photos.
7. Kang Daniel
One of the factors contributing to the charm of the “national center” on stage is the makeup. But sometimes, the makeup layer betrays Kang Daniel and destroys his perfect appearance. Once during a new product launch event with Wanna One, Kang Daniel made fans confused when he appeared with a pale face, like he didn’t put any makeup on except for the white foundation. It seems like using too bright foundation shade is a very common mistake here.
Besides, his eye makeup also went wrong since this way of drawing eyeliner just emphasized his small monolids. The makeup artist chose a yellowish eyeshadow which makes it look like Daniel hadn’t had enough sleep. Moreover, since not wearing lipstick, his lips are pale, chapped and make his face lack energy. Many fans were worried about him because they thought that he had a health problem.
8. SHINee’s Minho
Let’s face it, Minho looked like a 40-year-old man in this makeup look. In fact, fans got used to seeing him with a bare face which is extremely handsome. The patchy makeup just degraded his visual a lot and revealed all his wrinkles, combined with the grayish hair, Minho looks like a middle-aged man.
Also, since he didn’t wear any lipstick, his face was pale. The same as other cases, his forehead wasn’t fully covered and his neck tone was far different from his face because it was barely touched up. Apart from applying white foundation to Minho’s face, his makeup artist hardly put any other product on. Therefore, the overall look was quite negligent.
9. Solar (MAMAMOO)
Solar is also one of the victims of heavy makeup. Just like the other idols, her most serious makeup mistake was the foundation. Apart from not matching her body skin tone, this foundation layer also looks oily. I mean, I get the idea of having a glowy complexion, but this is not that youthful glow, it looks more like oil on her face.
Her neck was also carelessly touched up, there was just a little foundation in the middle, the sides of her neck were completely forgotten. Not over yet, her eye makeup was patchy and the color had a terribly yellowish-orange tone to it, it was the same orange as her eyebrows which was pretty weird. To be honest, I got a little too frightened when I first saw this picture.
10. Nayeon (TWICE)
One time, a photo captured Nayeon’s makeup look brought up lots of discussions. It is known that the photo was taken when TWICE had just finished recording for their music program. It’s worth noting that her bold makeup layer is clearly exposed by fans’ flash. The extra white foundation looks entirely different from her natural skin tone.
Besides, her blush was too much, and it was not tapped evenly. With a natural charm like Nayeon, people believe that she doesn’t need a thick makeup layer like this. However, people gradually understand the reason behind it when seeing Nayeon appearing on stage with that exact same makeup layer, she looked totally fine and pretty.
The fact is KPOP idols, in general, often have to wear super heavy makeup before they get onto the stage, because there are hundreds of light sources on the stage, and they are all very strong. So if these idols just put on natural makeup, their faces will become pale, the features will be blurred or almost look like nothing under such strong light.
Just take Do Ah as an example. Look at this picture, she was performing on stage with a very natural and light makeup layer. However, these off-stage pictures tell the opposite, it’s clear that she was wearing very heavy makeup. Her foundation is 2 tones whiter than her skin, and the eye makeup looks super red.
Besides, her blush and lips color was so vibrant. Therefore, it makes sense now that the makeup has to rely on the stage lights. After all, makeup artists always want idols’ images to be the best on stage.
