The former Girls Generation member is more than a K-pop singer. She’s starred in a musical, tried her hand at acting and launched her own fashion label Blanc & Eclare in 2014. In 2017, Forbes Magazine put her on its list of Asia’s top 30 under 30. A fixture seen at international fashion weeks, she doesn’t show any signs of stopping.
This can be seen in Blanc & Eclare, which has a wide range of clothes, accessories and skincare products, and is sold in more than 70 stockists worldwide. As the face of her brand, Jung has perfected the girl-next-door vibe, often dressed in trendy clothes but not experimenting too much with her makeup. Still, we all know that an effortless look takes serious work to perfect, so here’s how you can recreate her go-to makeup looks.
#1: Natural brows
Jessica’s eyebrows are always on fleek, straight and simple while flattering the angles of her face. Get such fabulous brows by getting them in shape first, then filling them in with flicking motions in the direction your hair is growing to create the most realistic-looking hairs with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, $40. Don’t fill in your brows with one single strike of any product, whether you’re using pencil, powder or gel. And to make it look natural, get the perfect shade by using two different tones to fill in your brows.
#2: Peach lips
Unlike red which makes a statement, and pink that can be too girly, peach is a versatile colour that flatters all skin tones and is one of the few bright colours that still looks natural. Choose something that has a more pinkish coral tint over a brown tint, to add more colour to your face and give a young glow. Jessica’s trick? Dab some gloss in the middle of your bottom lip only so that it looks more plump and voluminous. Try the Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Matte Long Wear Lipstick, $32, which sports a sweet pink hue that will make your lips dewy and kissable.
3. Defined lashes
Don’t have naturally full lashes? Don’t worry about it. Get a hardworking mascara that coats every single lash and gives it a slight lift. Just remember to curl your eyelashes before applying mascara. To really accentuate your eyes, think about adding individual false lashes, such as the Natasha Denona Singles False Eyelashes, $18, along the lower lash-line. With the choice of length and thickness, it can be as natural-looking or dramatic as you want, depending on your mood.
4. Blushing beauty
Flawless complexion is basic for k-pop celebrities. What better way to look more radiant than adding a hint of pink on those plump cheeks? Get a healthy-looking flush with a swipe of blush. Layer on this limited-edition NARS Orgasm Blush/Highlighter Duo Mini, $36, to get a gorgeous sun-kissed glow. To slim a round face, apply blush along your cheekbones and extend the colour out to your temples. If you want to look more perky, add blush a little higher up than the apples of your cheeks, nearer to your cheekbones for a lifted effect.
5. Sunset eyeshadow
Orange eyeshadow doesn’t have to be theatrical and dramatic. Start small and smudge the eyeshadow across your upper lash line and blend it across your eyelid. Do like Jessica and pair it with a hint of eyeliner and girly pink lip. Urban Decay’s Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette, $83 with 12 shades of soft mattes and sizzling metallics that pair well with the rustic shade, so you decide if you want a neutral or shimmery finish.
