WATCH: Liza Soberano recreates ‘How You Like That’ look of Blackpink’s Jennie
Self-confessed K-pop fan Liza Soberano recreated the look of Blackpink’s Jennie Kim for her latest vlog episode.
The actress showed her attempt — including her struggles — in a video released yesterday, July 25 on her YouTube channel.
Among Jennie’s looks in the music video, Soberano chose to recreate the one in the teaser poster, where Jennie had the front of her hair in blonde streaks while the rest of it was black and tied up. The makeup stood out because of the red eyeshadow that faded into her cheeks.
As Soberano did her makeup on her own, she discussed too how she got into K-pop, revealing that she first got into it when she was in sixth grade until first year high school. Some of the groups she liked were 2NE1, Super Junior and Girls Generation.
She also revealed that she stopped listening to K-pop when she moved from Pangasinan to Manila because she got busy with school and acting. Then she learned of Blackpink in 2018, thanks to a cousin, and she went into a “black hole” of K-pop.
Soberano gave tips to achieve the look, like using a lighter foundation since Kim had fairer skin, and giving a more natural look to her brows the way Kim does hers.
She said that to get the red under the eyes, makeup artist Mickey See advised her to use lipstick instead of eyeshadow. After selecting the shade she felt matched Kim’s look, she dabbed it under eyes and spread the lipstick with a brush.
As for the hair, Soberano put on a wig with the help of Andie, the sister of her boyfriend Enrique Gil. She capped off the video with a photoshoot and channeled Kim’s fierceness.
The result: a look that any Blink would be proud to achieve. JB
