MakeUp Tips from BlackPink : Some K-Beauty Must Haves




With the release of their latest single “How You Like That”, Blackpink has yet again proved why they are arguably the biggest KPop girl group of today. In the music video, as per usual, the girl group gave us covet-worthy looks and make up that was so on-point it made us wish we got access to makeup tips from Blackpink themselves. Whether it is Lisa, Jennie, Rose or Ji Soo that you are a fan of – it is undeniable that these ladies are the perfect examples of what a ‘triple threat’ is. They are undeniably good looking, given model-like figures and also exceptionally talented.

In every music video, there are iconic looks from the girls we wish we could copy. Thankfully, in previous interviews – they were generous enough to share some of the ways they keep themselves looking gorgeous and on-point – no fail.

Without further ado, here are some makeup tips from Blackpink.

Ready for Blackpink-endorsed beauty tips? Here we go.


If you love Jisoo, you would be surprised to know that her cosmetics bag contains very few makeup products. So few, in fact, that the idol revealed that the her reason is that she chooses to focus more on skincare rather than makeup.  She is not the only female personality in the Korean showbusiness that believes in this, as you may have read in our previous articles. Now, we all know that her blemish-free and glowing t skin comes as esult of  her commitment to skincare rather than the latest makeup products. – this is a philosophy we should all live by too, if we want to have great skin like hers.



We have already talked about the importance of thorough cleansing in the past and as it turns out, Blackpink member Rose believes in this too. This tip seem obvious enough as it is. However, it can be easily forgotten especially when you come home from a long day of work. According to Rose, cleansing her face is definitely ant important part of taking good care of herself. That said she makes it a point to gently remove her makeup and wash her face no matter how tired she may be.


While from afar, Jisoo’s skin looks flawless and blemish-free all the time, she recently revealed that one of her biggest concerns when it comes to her skin is that it’s quite dry. Because she is suffering from dryness quite often, her secret is to carry with her a facial mask regularly – sometimes, adding up to two or three times in a day. Regular users may think of this as a little too much. Then again, if it’s good enough for Ji Soo, we might as well give it a shot, right?



Another Blackpink member who is suffering from dry skin?  Lisa. In a previous interview, she shared this trick: pile on cream moisturiser and allow her skin to absorb it while she sleeps. Those who are not used to using tons of skincare products may find that their skin feel oily and sticky after the routine, but you can consider applying a little more or opting for a sleeping mask that’s intended for thick application without weighing on skin. According to Lisa herself, You’ll love how you’ll wake up to soft and supple skin in the morning!


Another secret tip that was shared by Lisa in her interview : a facial massage after applying moisturiser. This allows the product to penetrate deeper into the skin, enhancing its effects. In fact, Lisa brings a facial massager everywhere she goes so she can use it anytime!


Here is another tip from Ji Soo: After wearing lipstick for the entire day, Jisoo likes to exfoliate her lips. She then follows up with lip balm for moisturisation. This keeps her puckers looking soft and kissable!



Most of her band members enjoy experimenting with new products all the time. As for Rose, she  sticks to products she is already comfortable with.. This is a philosophy we can definitely adopt for our skincare products. It is so tempting to buy every product with good reviews and make do without them eventually  but we have to first consider whether they are suitable for our skin type and if we can actually use them for the long run so as not to waste money on too much products.


Blackpink has their secret health food: chicken feet collagen soup, a home recipe from Rose’s mum. Advocates of collagen-rich foods attest that they can help firm skin and help it regain elasticity and bounce – so it is no wonder that the girls have such supple skin. While we do not have access to Rose’s recipe, we can definitely look out for food rich in collagen such as slow-cooked bone broth and cod fish.

Mariah Carey Covers Irene Cara’s Classic ‘Fame’ Ballad




Mariah Carey continues to dig within the crates to share unreleased tracks that got off from her.

The history-making popular music diva shared an excerpt from her upcoming memoir “The Meaning of Mariah Carey,” during which she details her love for the 1980 movie “Fame” and its star, Irene Cara.

On Friday, she officially released her version of 1 of the songs Cara performed within the classic film movie, “Out Here on my very own,” which was an Oscar-nominated top-20 hit.

“My mother entered me in a talent competition in the city, and I sang one of my favorite songs, ‘Out Here on My Own,’ by Irene Cara,” the five-time Grammy Award winner shared to her 9.5 million Instagram followers. “I felt ‘Out Here on My Own’ described my entire life, and I loved singing that way—singing to reveal a piece of my soul. And I won doing it.”

“At that age. I lived for the movie Fame, and Irene Cara was everything to me,” Carey continued. “I related to her multicultural look…her multi-textured hair and, most importantly, her ambition and accomplishments.”

“’Out Here on My Own’ was such a pure song that touched my heart, and I couldn’t believe I won a trophy for singing a song I loved,” she wrote in the caption. “It was the first time I’d received validation as an artist.”

The “Vision of Love” singer/songwriter furthered: “Coincidentally, it wasn’t until after I had written about ‘Out Here On My Own’ in the book, that I found it in the vault while making ‘The Rarities.’ Totally meant to be!!”

Carey’s version of the ballad, recorded July 17, 2000, was going to appear on the soundtrack album of her 2001 critically panned movie “Glitter,” which was apparently originally titled “All That Glitters.”

Penned by Lesley Gore and Michael Gore, “Out Here on My Own” was nominated for Best Original Song at the 1981 Academy Awards.

The never-before-released gem will appear on the 2-CD compilation “The Rarities,” due Oct. 2 via Columbia/Legacy.

It’s always a shock when these couples’ relationship woes make headlines because we don’t know much about them, to begin with. Dianna Agron and Winston Marshall are one of these notoriously private pairs who recently called it quits.

Agron is an actress best known for her role as Quinn Fabray on Glee. Agron was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, but later moved to Texas and then San Francisco. She has a younger brother, Jason. Agron was an excellent student in highschool and spent much of her time performing.

In 2009, she was cast in Glee. The young actress received the news just two days before production began. After her breakout role on the hit TV series, Agron made her way to the big screen. She starred in the 2010 musical Burlesque, working with Christina Aguilera and Cher. She also played Sarah Hart in the 2011 action film, I Am Number Four.

Agron was sought out by director and screenwriter Luc Besson for a role in his 2013 film, The Family. After seeing her on Glee, Besson says he created the role of Belle specifically with Agron in mind. Belle was the daughter of a Mafioso who ratted out his cohorts, forcing his family into witness protection.

Marshall is the banjoist and lead guitarist of Mumford and Sons. Marshall was born in London and was interested in music at a very young age. He learned to play the electric guitar when he was 13 and later became incredibly skilled on the banjo.

In fact, Marshall’s incredible talent on the banjo brought the instrument into mainstream music and inspired numerous banjo players around the world.

Before making it big with Mumford and Sons, the musician ran jam nights at a local club, Bosun’s Locker. He actually met Mumford at this club. He also played in several other bands, most of which played bluegrass sleaze rap.

Later, Marshall became interested in techno and EDM and joined Austrian DJs, HVOB.

Marshall had a brief, one night fling with legendary musician Katy Perry. The were both in Germany, playing shows at different venues. They met at a nightclub one evening and later retired to Perry’s private room.

During the holidays that year, they became engaged. Fans caught a glimpse of Agron’s gorgeous engagement ring in February 2016 at London Fashion Week.

The couple was married in Morocco in October 2016. The wedding was a lavish, three-day event. Photos feature Agron in a stunning floral gown and white headdress, and camels decked out in vivid red, pink, and orange knit blankets.

Former Girls Generation member, Jessica Jung Writes a Book Called “Shine”




The story of a Korean-American teen who is picked by a significant agency to debut during a 9-piece K-pop girl group sure sounds familiar … but what we actually want to grasp is when Ace Entertainment will turn Jung’s story into a Netflix drama series.

In 2016, she met with disagreements within the group and company and was dismissed from the team. Later, she joined Coridel Entertainment, founded by her long-time boyfriend, business mogul Tyler Kwon, and released her debut solo album, “With Love, J”.

She is seen most often with her sister, fellow K-pop star Krystal Jung. The two were much loved for their reality programme, J&K, which was even set to renew for season two, until Jessica fell out with her company – the very same one that houses Krystal.

For now, fans of their sisterly dynamics can be content with watching their vlogs on Jessica’s YouTube channel, Jessica Land. The two often travel together, making for fun videos. Recently, they attended a pottery class together.
