In addition to being one of the most-followed Kpop stars on social media, Blackpink’s Lisa is taking her fame to another level by releasing a solo album, Lalisa. The album is named after the singer’s real name and she is the third member of Blackpink to release solo work.
The album will feature two songs – Lalisa and Money – as well as instrumental versions of those two tracks. Lisa has been teasing her new release on her Instagram account for some time now and if those photos and videos are anything to go by, we’re expecting lots of new looks and beauty trends to come out of this release.
Lisa also ranked at the top of TCCAsia’s Most Beautiful Faces in Asia 2020 list. Here are some of the Thai native’s best beauty looks and the beauty tips you can learn from her.
Steal the limelight with simple make-up and a low-maintenance hairstyle but a subtle (or not so subtle, if you wish) touch of bling. Who doesn’t love shiny nails? Lisa is seen here in one of the promo shots for her new album, with some very impressive bling that accentuates her look in a unique way.
Bold eyeliner is not just for nights out at the club. Make your eyes the centre of attention any time you want by creating the smoky-eye look. Go for a darker, more dramatic look or keep it simple like Lisa here – either way, your eyeliner will be turning heads.
Sometimes, less really is more. And Lisa is a firm believer of this with her love of nude lipsticks. Keep your make-up light to match this nude look and practice your pout in front of the mirror to steal Lisa’s pose too.
Whether you’re using extensions or are #blessed with naturally-long lashes, getting them to curl nicely is a bonus. Not only do they accentuate your eyes, they also give you a sexy, playful look. So why not take this further by matching your hair and outfit with this theme, like Lisa does so well here?
Lisa is one of our #hairinspo idols and we love the way she experiments with new looks, styles and colours. And why just have ‘ordinary’ hair extensions when you can have ones that make a statement? A contrasting colour to your natural hair? What about plaits? Something that matches your outfit too? How about all of the above? As the saying goes, “go big or go home” and we love that Lisa follows this rule.
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, Lisa sends the clear message that sometimes, minimal makeup makes the maximum impact.

While Lisa is known for her cascading locks, she’s never one to shy away from giving new looks a try. 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!
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.
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, but 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 into 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.
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.
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.
If you’re rushing out of the house, you probably won’t have time for an intricate eye look that requires tonnes of blending. Instead, opt for a quick 2-minute eye look and sweep your favourite coral eyeshadow (these are the fun eyeshadows to try, according to makeup artist Larry Yeo) onto your lids. If you’re thinking about adding extra glam, pop a translucent shimmery shade over the pink with your fingertips.
Here’s a tip if you’re on-the-go and didn’t pack eyeshadow: pop your blush on your lids instead. It’ll tie the whole look together and add some colour onto your lids without having to lug a large eyeshadow palette around.
If you’ve been catching up on Korean celebs’ looks these days, you’ll notice that they’ve been steering away from the classic red and have been opting for other fun shades like pink (these are the pink lipstick shades that work for Asian skin). Here, the K-pop star is rocking a hot pink shade that makes her lips pop instantly.
When wearing such a bright shade on your lips, don’t forget to give your pout a good scrub beforehand to ensure that the lipstick glides on smoothly and effortlessly. Pop on a clear gloss after too so your lips will look extra luscious and shiny.
There’s a reason why eyelash extensions have become more popular than ever. That’s because rocking long, thick lashes really helps to glam up your entire makeup look without having to spend much time on the eyes.
If you’re not keen on maintaining eyelash extensions, opt for a good mascara that not only lengthens your lashes, but thickens them too. Start right at the root of your lashes to give the illusion that you’re wearing eyeliner, and don’t forget to give some TLC to your lower lashes as well.
Black liners are out and coloured liners are in, especially in blue shades like the one Lisa is rocking in this up-close photoshoot with Nylon China.
To recreate Lisa’s eye look, opt for a blue pencil liner instead of a liquid liner, so you can easily blend the colour out to give it a smoky, laidback look. Top it all off with a couple of mascara coats and a dash of shimmery eyeshadow at the inner corners of your eye. And if you’re not a fan of blue, try doing the same thing with light pink or even violet instead.
Feathered bangs are a great hair style to try if you’ve been looking to commit to bangs but are afraid of comitting to a bold look. They suit most face shapes and are much easier to style as opposed to thick, full fringes. They work for most hair lengths as well, but we’re partial to a French-style wavy bob like how Lisa has here.
As Y2K hairstyles have been popping off on TikTok, space buns have slowly come back into mainstream media as seen on celebs like Jennifer Lopez and Lisa. We loved how Lisa toned down the youthfulness of the look by styling it with a tuxedo blazer.
