A regular at the biggest events and fashion weeks, CL is also often on celebrity best-dressed lists, solidifying her status as a fashion icon.
Often sporting her signature kohl-rimmed eyes and frequently-changing hair colour, it is no wonder she’s also a beauty icon in her native Korea as well as internationally.
As she turns 28, we take a look at her best beauty looks:
1. Almost never seen without her signature kohl-rimmed eyes, CL rocks a smoky version with a dark red lip for a super sexy, come-hither effect.
2. You can count on CL to make a statement. Here, she wears a lace mask with a graphic wing tip liner.
3. CL lets her mint green locks take centrestage as she keeps it (relatively) pared down with a touch of eyeliner and stained lips.
4. Who says black liner has to be monotonous and boring? CL shows us what it’s like to experiment and have fun with a sliver of teal liner peaking through.
5. In Paris for fashion week, CL keeps her makeup classy and elegant with her signature flick and immaculately painted red lips.
6. Here, she flaunts her lustrous blonde locks while opting for a lip colour that matches her coat.
7. Wispy bangs not only frame her face, but also add a touch of softness to her look.
8. Apart from her intensely kohl-rimmed eyes, CL keeps the rest of her makeup pared down with just a slick of rose-pink lipstick.
9. Donning a latex dress and boots, CL opts for a nude makeup and sleek hair combination.
10. Here, CL rocks a high ponytail that adds height to her frame and elongates her neck.
