How to Recreate BLACKPINK’s Makeup Looks in Their ‘Kill This Love’ MV

BLACKPINK didn’t just kill records with their latest music video “Kill This Love” (it’s YouTube’s most viewed music video debut ever) — they killed their makeup looks as well. Here are our faves and how you can get the look, too.


Are you a fan of BLACKPINK? If you’re not, you should be. Jennie, Rosé, Lisa, and Jisoo are the members of one of the hottest K-pop groups out now, selling out tours in the U.S. They’re even performing at Coachella this weekend, the first K-pop group to ever do so! MOOD.

I’m a loud and proud Blink (what they call their fans), so I’ve been eagerly anticipating what looks the girls were going to serve in their newest music video, “Kill This Love.” And let me tell you, they did NOT disappoint. Let’s talk about my fave BLACKPINK makeup looks.



Jennie’s smoky eye with rhinestones


Are you looking for a makeup look that could be your new clubbing go-to? Well, Jennie’s soft smoky eye with inner corner rhinestones is IT.

Jennie’s smoky cat eye look leans more on the golden side, so I think something like the Etude House Play Color Eyes Juice Bar palette would be a great choice. You have your matte shades to put in the crease and outer V, and some golden shimmer for the lid. All you need are two rhinestones, and you’re good to go!


Lisa’s hot pink look


When I saw Lisa with the blonde wig and MAJOR hot pink eyeshadow, I gasped out loud. Literally. It’s just too perfect. Lisa’s look is a super vibrant, monochromatic cat eye that’s perfect for when you’re looking to step outside of the box. 3CE’s One Color Shadow in the shade Spritzer should do the trick, or if you wanna go HOT HOT pink, the shade Bahamas from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette is perfect.

Use a thin, flat brush to apply and pack on the color in your desired cat eye shape. Add a heavy coat of mascara and a bubble pop pink lipstick, like the Laneige Stained Glass Stick in Fuschia Ruby. Barbie dreams, personified!


Jisoo’s dewy ethereal glow


Don’t think there’s only bold, vibrant looks in the video, oh no!J Jisoo’s ethereal glow is to die for.

This look is all about skincare first. Make sure your skin is prepped with lots of layers of hydrating essence (my fave is the Purito Fermented Complex Boosting Essence) and a healthy dose of highlight on the high parts of your face: cheekbones, brow bone, nose bridge, and chin. For the eyes, go for a shimmery golden beige from the 3CE Multi Eye Color Palette All Nighter and apply that generously on the lid with a finger so it looks lived in.


Rosé’s pretty pout


Rosé serves up some natural, subdued glam looks in the video. What’s the one thing that stands out? Her lipstick.

Channel her look on those laid back days when you want a bit of oompf but don’t really want to bother with a full face of makeup. The 3CE Red Recipe collection is full of bold, matte pinks and reds … all you need is the matching rose-colored hair!


Jennie’s festival look


This look is probably (definitely) my favorite look of them all. Jennie’s vibrant, festival-ready look is a twist on the classic smoky eye, but instead of grey and brown shades, she serves us a matte red smoky cat eye, complete with a golden-white colored vertical line for a touch of boho charm.

The CELLNCO Eye Love Shadow Palette in 02 Pink Mood has the perfect pink shades for this look. Take the shade Starlight Fuschia into the crease and down into the blend, making sure to blend out any hard edges. Then take a bit of the Pink Bird shade and blend that around the edges and under the eye to create that smoky look.

I love listening to her music, and I have a collection of hers that you might be interested in

I like their music as well and in interviews, they seem like very sweet young ladies who appreciate their fans and team. They're always thanking people and I've heard they've done some cute things like make up gift/goodie bags for fans if they attend events/support them.

I've copied Rosé's look from her moonshot ad, but it was a bit heavy for regular wear. I also managed to copy her darker look from DDU-DU DDU-DU when she's looking up at the white "goddess" version of herself.

Oh~ You should totally post a picture of the looks on your Beauty Wall! I would love to see it! :)


I like BLACKPINK's songs! They're so catchy and nice to listen to~ I like Jisoo's makeup the most! That glow! But Rose's makeup is pretty and simple! I don't know who to choose 😫
