OK, I still can’t get over how great Jun Ji-Hyun looked at Cannes. My favorite of her hair and makeup looks was definitely her voluminous waves at the photo call for Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. So, here’s my interpretation!
MAC Studio Finish Concealer
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
Nars “The Multiple” in Laguna
Nars Illuminator in Orgasm
Benefit High Beam Luminizer
MAC Eye Kohl in Rosemary and Thyme
MAC Liquid Liner in Boot Black
MAC Eye Brows
Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara
Nars Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Goddess
Clinique Chubby Stick in Chunky Cherry
Fekkai Tousled Wave Spray
Conair Infiniti Curling Wand Styler
-Apply moisturizer and sunscreen as usual. Use concealer (MAC Studio Finish Concealer) to cover blemishes and dark circles as needed. Jun’s skin is beyond flawless so try and be thorough. I’d suggest getting a magnifying mirror so you can get very intimate with your face
– Apply liquid foundation (Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation) with a damp sponge for a natural look. Be thorough but don’t pile on layers.
-Suck in your cheeks and apply a very light slash of bronzer (Nars The Multiple in Laguna) below your cheekbones and blend in with your fingers. Jun looks like she has no color on her cheeks from afar, but close up you can see the subtle bits of color. The Multiple stick will help with the light application and more natural look
-Apply blush (Nars Illuminator in Orgasm) lightly onto the apples of your cheeks. The liquid illuminator will also help with light application and make the glow seem like it’s coming from within.
-To complete the almost dewy, glowing look that Jun has add some luminizer (Benefit High Beam) onto your cheekbones and down the middle of your nose. Blend well with your fingers.
–Draw lightly around the eye, top and bottom with a pale, shimmery eyeshadow (Nars Eyeshadow stick in Goddess). Smudge with your fingers, you don’t want a heavy line just a light shimmer
-Draw a thin line with a slight wing on your upper lid with a black liquid liner (MAC Liquid Liner)
-Line the bottom rim of your eye with a brownish-black kohl liner (MAC Eye Kohl). Smudge to make the line more natural looking
-Curl your lashes (preferably with the Shu Uemera Eyelash Curler) and apply mascara (Lamcome Definicils High Definition Mascara). Go for a natural, lengthening look, don’t have your eyelashes be clumpy.
-Apply a brow filler (MAC Brows). Brush your brows to diffuse the color evenly into your brows.
-Use a lip balm for well moisturized lips
-Apply a glossy lipstick or stain in a sheer red (Clinique Chubby Stick in Chunky Cherry). Clinique’s Chubby Sticks are great pops of color that also provide moisture and gloss.
-Jun’s hair is dyed slightly brown. To imitate this look, see a colorist at your local salon
-Blowdry your hair
-Spray a wave spray (Fekkai Tousled Wave Spray) onto dry hair
-Create loose, sporadic waves with a curler (Conair Infiniti Curling Wand Styler). Natural waves are best created with a wand tool that doesn’t have the clamp that is present on most traditional curlers. Many inexpensive ones work really well, I’d urge anyone to give wand stylers a try!
-brush your fingers gently through the waves. Apply more waving spray or hair spray if needed
And that’s how you can look sophisticated, naturally beautiful, and camera ready like Jun Ji-Hyun at Cannes!
