Tutorial: Yoon Eun Hye ~ My Fair Lady Inspired Look
(more beautiful pics of Yoon Eun Hye from the above blog!)

I recently re-watched my favourite Korean Drama My Fair Lady on DVD. As I was watching the show, Yoon Eun Hye's eye make up really caught my attention. Her make up was never really smokey or heavy, but there was just this certain glamour to her eyes. I sort of studied her eye make up while watching the show (at the same time almost swooning each time the charismatic male lead, Yoon Sang Hyun appeared on screen) and decided to create an inspired look with my Chanel Les 4 Ombres in 19 Enigma palette.

Sorry~ I look no where near Yoon Eun Hye ^^;

Products used for this look:

Left to right, top to bottom: Chanel Les 4 Ombres in 19 Enigma, Maquillage 3D Face Creator in 55, Koji Lash Specialist Long & Seperate Mascara, Majolica Marjoca Curl Curl Toward the Sky Mascara Base, Koji Smooth Eyeliner, MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Duck, Makemania Curvy Lip Silicone
From top to bottom: light pink with gold shimmer, metallic moss green with silver shimmer, really dark brown with silver shimmer, dark plum with a little bit of silver shimmer

13 Simple Steps:

1. Using a black eye liner, draw a dot on your eyelid to mark where your line will end. Dot the other eyelid and make sure both sides match.

2. Draw a moderately thick line from your inner corner of eye to the dot you had just drawn.

3. Using a liner brush, smudge the line you had drawn to blur its harsh edges.

4. Use your black eyeliner again and line your lower lash line from the inner corner. Leave a little of the outer corner unlined.

5. Use a brown eyeliner to line the outer corner of your lower lash line. The line should be softer and not be so obvious.

6. Using the moss green from your Chanel eyeshadow palette, blend the color over the line you had smudged.

7. Then, blend the dark brown eyeshadow at your medium eyelid. Do not apply too much. You just want a little bit of shimmer and color.

8. Apply the dark plum eyeshadow over the black line of your lower lash line. Do not apply any over the brown one. This will help set your eyeliner.

9. Apply the light pink eyeshadow all over your eyelid (as the color is really light, it doesn't really show up in the photos, but it sure brightens your eyes in real life). If you want to use a color even closer to Yoon Eun Hye's in the show, use a shimmery peachy pink!

10. Curl your lashes. Apply mascara base and black mascara. Don't forget your lower lashes.

11. Apply false lashes to the outer corner of eyes. Do not use full lashes. You don't want a dramatic look!

12. Fill in your brows and apply a beige blusher to the apples of your cheeks.

13. Apply a clear gloss to the centre of your lips to create natural yet juicy lips.


Phew! This was a difficult look for me as I am not really good at drawing lines. And because the colors used are not really dark (I refer to the pink), the look was difficult to be captured in a photo. I hope you can see more than just black lines on my eyelids!

Hope you have enjoyed this tutorial!

Hi ashura thanks for dropping by again :) my hubby is a photographer, I wanted to improve the photo quality on my blog.... so that in the future my outfit pictures are not going to be out of my bath room hehe :)

Nice tutorial by the way, I'm not so good with lines too most of the time I only know to tight line my eyes ... very helpful with that dot as a guide I'll try that one day :)

This is such a pretty natural look!! You look really cute in the last pic!

Thanks for following :D I'm following you back too ^^

I would pair red lipstick with minimum eye makeup or very neutral eye makeup - earth tones. Browns would would but maybe with cool tones :) I wasn't wearing eye makeup in my pics but I would work it with simple black liquid or pencil eyeliner for a clean look, I guess ut depends on how dramatic or natural you want to work it :)

Hi Trang,

Love the eyes that you have done...smokey is it?They look perfectly lovely.The products assorted used are the best and they definitely help you get the right look.The lips are left simplistic and nude which is why the accentuated eyes look gorgeous.
