I was watching Big Bang’s hilarious parody of Secret Garden and came across an unlikely candidate for monolid makeup ideas! Daesung in drag.
You think I’m hard up for monolid models? Well you’re probably right, if I see anyone with a monolid, I will look and see what they’re doing makeup wise. Men in drag are no expectation!
Get Monolid makeup inspiration from anywhere!
So here’s Daesung’s fabulously haughty woman. I love women who have that air of not giving a damn. She probably doesn’t give a damn about her eyelids either. Look her! She is just werking them and judging you!
I know it sounds like I’m joking and being a little sarcastic but Iooking at his makeup… I genuinely quite like it. It’s simple, elegant with a touch of sass!
It looks like he has a more taupe/brown eyeshadow shaded just above his eyes (it is not over the whole lid). Just enough over the pupil. Then a highlighter eye shadow swept under his brows to create some definition.
I think the problem with monolids is that you have to put a lot of liner close to the eye before you can see anything. But in this case, I like that you can’t really see it unless you close your eyes.
E.g. In the screen cap below, you can see that he’s winged his eyes ever so slightly with some eyeliner, but it is not enough to see when his eyes are opened.
I also like that his fake lashes aren’t overwhelming. The length is shorter but for a touch of glamour the lashes has more volume! It’s a pretty simple look that I’m going to try one day. It’s a monolid makeup style that is great for a day out or even work.
Now say together with me ‘MMMM SMELL’.
