Get her know-hows on how to get that natural, yet gorgeous, daily look of EXID HaNi!
1. Having a Strong Foundation
HaNi shares that in order to have a flawless look, you gotta have a strong foundation. And that, starts with the right base. HaNi starts off her makeup routine with a green tinted base. She chose green, because her face is a little darker than the rest of her body, so she brightens her skin tone with a green shaded base. Make sure you’re not applying it everywhere! Just dab a bit on the right places, such as the T-zone and your cheekbones. One extra tip from HaNi is to rub your hands together to use the heat of your hands while applying the base. Apparently it makes a tremendous difference!
Next comes the foundation. HaNi prefers an all-in-one cushion that she can simply dab on her face in one step. She makes sure that her cushion offers sun protection, coverage, and oil-prevention!
2. Eyes of Simplicity
The main eye game is simplicity in the eyes. HaNi only uses a shadow pencil to shade in the end wings of her eyes, and bolds the ine with a liquid eyeliner. To add the finishing touch, she uses a mascara to give her eyes a boost. HaNi preferred to use a shade of brown for all of her eye makeup, but make sure you choose the right color that matches your hair color!
3. Blush Like You’ve Got a Secret
A highlight of HaNi’s daily makeup is a tint of blush on her cheeks. HaNi prefers a cream blusher that she can dab onto her cheeks to give her a bright and innocent look. Knowing herself, HaNi always keeps her cushion around during this stage to even out the blusher when she goes pink-crazy on her cheeks!
4. Accentuate the V-Line
When people ask others where they think HaNi got plastic surgery, the number one answer is her pointy jaw line. Well people, it’s all natural with the help with contouring! HaNi already has a perfect v-line, but she accentuates her best feature by shading in the sides of her face. According to her, contouring applies best while smiling.
5. Finish Off With a Pout
The last step to HaNi’s daily makeup routine is her lips. HaNi never really has a specific lip color or cream that she prefers, but she has always been known to dabble in highlight colored glosses! Apply your choice of lip color and dab along the inside of your lips to give it a slight gradation effect!
