Tara's Jiyeon's Inspired Eye Makeup Tutorial

T-ara (Korean: 티아라, Japanese: ティアラ, often stylized as T-ARA or T♔ARA) is a popular 7 member South Korean girl group formed by Core Contents Media in 2009.  The maknae (youngest) of the group, Jiyeon, always wears the typical elongated Korean eye makeup. I've been inspired by her to create this look, so enjoy!

How do I apply my BB cream?

I've made a separate tutorial here filled with tips and tricks on BB cream usage!

From left to right: Blistex Conditioning Lipbalm, Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner, Rimmel London Soft Kohl Pencil Eyeliner, Coastal Scents Double-ended eyeshadow and liner brush, Clinique pact, Eyeliner brush and a no named Japanese eyeshadow and blush pact.

 Step 1: Tightlining/Lining the waterline using a pencil eyeliner.
I applied a light white shimmery base from the Clinique pact before taking this photo. (For photos of products, scroll down)
Step 2: Create a line using an angled eyeliner brush, extending from your eye's outer v. I used Maybelline's gel eyeliner.

Step 3: Draw in your upper and bottom lash line, connecting it to the end of the line we created in step 2. (Optional: Add a flick at the top to create a more dramatic look). Then fill in the empty, undrawn spaces.

And this would be the end result after filling in the eyeliner.

The above finished look is the more natural approach, so for a more dramatic look, you can add more flicks and apply glitter eyeliner/shadow. Don't be afraid to add a light pink lipstick like Maybelline's Color Sensational in Pink Please 025.

Step 4: Add more flicks to create the illusion of doll eyes. Use your angled eyeliner brush to have a more easy application.
I applied some silver eyeshadow from the Japanese eyeshadow/blush pact under the bottom lined line. Extend it to the flick.

  Finished result: 

Products used:
Clinique pact which includes several an individual blush, eyeshadow and bronzer.

I used the light shimmery white/taupe colour.

I used the silver to create a more dramatic effect.
