All the Best Hair and Makeup Moments From Sunmi’s Most Colorful Music Video Yet

When K-pop star Sunmi kicked off the teasers for her new single, “날라리 (Lalalay),” with macro shots of a rainbow eye-shadow look, I knew the music video for it would change me. It officially dropped today, and my assumptions were proven correct.

Over the past two years, Sunmi’s approach to beauty has been consistently innovative and incredibly fun to watch. The looks in “Gashina,” the song that truly kicked off her solo career, were great. However, her hair and makeup just keep getting better and better with each release. Yes, she makes the kinds of songs that make you want to get up to sing and dance along with her, but she also backs them with makeup that people want to re-create too. If you ask me, that’s the sign of a successful concept, and “날라리 (Lalalay)” goes above and beyond. I want to try out more than one of the looks her go-to makeup artist Gun Hee put together for the music video. Here’s all six that I’ll be attempting in the coming weeks.

Look 1: Retro Green Shadow and Nude Lipstick

After freeing herself from a butterfly sticker-covered suitcase, Sunmi emerges with her lids covered in a mint green shadow and delicate flicks of black liner. Seconds later, a sleek, retro blonde bob appears on her head, and as the camera zooms up on her face, you’ll notice that she is the only person in the world who can pull off that specific shade of nude lipstick. It’s a pale sepia hue that doesn’t look good on anyone, but somehow, Sunmi makes it work. Now, I’m slightly convinced I should give that nude a second chance.

Also, as she slips on cat-eye sunglasses, you can peep a trendy shade of neon lemon-lime polish on Sunmi’s nails.

Look 2: Fall-Ready Glossy Wine Lips

To contrast the colorful and sparkly makeup throughout the music video, Sunmi has a ’90s grunge for one of the scenes in which she eats a flower. She looks super Kate Moss-y with her recently bleached hair, subtle wash of ash-gray shadow, and oxblood gloss.

I need to know what lip product that is ASAP but suspect it’s a layered situation because it’s a very particular shade of black-red.

Look 3: Black Velvet Pigtails and Heart Art

At one point in “날라리 (Lalalay),” Sunmi steps out of a beauty salon called Premium Beauty Salon with high pigtails adorned with black velvet scrunchies — a controversial look that, again, Sumni owns.

Her makeup, on the other hand, makes a major nod to “Noir.” Heart cheek art was the standout look from her last music video, and it makes another appearance in the form of a turquoise heart on one cheek and a red one on the other. This time, Gun Hee paired the unexpected accents with glittery aqua and pink eye makeup.

Look 4: Butterfly Pigtails

The high pigtails make a second appearance in the music video when Sunmi sits in front of a huge work of art featuring her likeness in butterfly form. She also butterfly-ed out her hair to match.

Look 5: Sparkly Smoky Eye

This look also ties in elements from a past music video. Sunmi’s glitzy smoky eye is specifically giving me “Siren” vibes. I’m also loving the metallic red lipstick. Consider this look and this look alone my New Year’s Eve makeup mood board.

Look 6: Rainbow Sherbet Shadow

Sunmi waited until the very end of “날라리 (Lalalay)” to bring back the colorful shadow she hinted at in the teasers. It was the hardest look to take screenshots of, but it’s luckily on the cover for the single. The blend of neons and pastels reminds me of a look that Jules on Euphoria would wear.

One of my friends asked me how to re-create the look when the teaser came out. “Lots of blending, like your life depends on it,” I replied, and I’m prepared to do just that.
