As the K-beauty wave shows no sign of slowing down, celebrities ranging from OGs such as Song Hye-Kyo and Gianna Jun to young starlets such as BLACKPINK’s Lisa continue to front beauty campaigns and are widely watched for their latest looks. As Lisa turns 22 on March 27, we take a look at her best beauty looks and the top beauty tips you can learn from the Thai native:
#1: Less Is More
In her campaign visuals for Moonshot Cosmetics, Lisa is seen wearing a minimal amount of makeup that perfectly accentuates her features without piling on thick and heavy makeup. With just a touch of soft shades of pink on her lids and lips, plus a slick of brown eyeliner on her upper lash lash, Lisa sends the clear message that sometimes, minimal makeup makes the maximum impact.
#2: Feel Free To Switch Things Up
While Lisa is known for her cascading locks, she’s never one to shy away from giving new looks a go. Seen here on her Instagram feed in a bob-style wig, it is a drastic change from her signature look with zero commitment. Whether this inspires you to chop off your locks or get your hands on wigs, this shows that what matters when it comes to experimenting with beauty is to have fun while doing so!

#3: A Red Lipstick Changes Everything
Whether you’re prepping to head for a night out, a dinner date or just because you feel like it, a red lipstick instantly makes your lips pop and adds confidence.
#4: Opt For A Textured Ponytail
If you’re looking for new ways to wear your long hair, try a textured ponytail. Not only is it easy to achieve on your own, it is also super versatile and can take you from day to night. All you have to do is tease the hair at the top of your head for added volume. Next, gather your hair to a low ponytail and secure it, wrapping a piece of your hair around it. Then, flat iron the remaining ends and tease the ends to create texture and volume.

#5: Master The Perfect Cat-Eye
There’s nothing quite as classic as the perfect cat eye. And no matter what your eye shape is, the perfect flick can define your eyes and lift your features. Plus, you can dress it down for everyday wear or play it up for an exaggerated effect too. All you need is a waterproof eyeliner, a steady hand and loads of practice.
#6: Healthy Hair Is Beautiful Hair
If you have long hair like Lisa, you’ll know that it’s often subjected to dryness, tangles and even breakages. And if you don’t give it adequate TLC, long hair is more prone to become damaged and dull. Take your cue from Lisa and keep them in tip top condition so it looks shiny and healthy. Choose a repairing shampoo and don’t skip the conditioner and mask routine. Keep a hair serum or a hair oil by your bed so you never forget to apply it, by spreading it along the lengths, focusing on the ends and avoiding the roots. And as a last touch of your getting-ready routine, spritz on a finishing spray that locks in shine and blocks out humidity so your tresses stay sleek and smooth.
