How to get birthday girl Jolin Tsai's beauty looks
Aside from her singing and dancing talents, Mandopop sensation Jolin Tsai is also known for her unabashed love of clothes and her innate ability to stay on her beauty A-game. She not only picks but also nails the looks nobody else would dare to wear.
It’s hard to believe Jolin is only celebrating her 38th birthday tomorrow (15 September 1980) – not because she looks anything less than phenomenal, but because it seems almost impossible to remember a pre-Jolin world. Was it really only the late ‘90s when the “Show Your Love” singer burst on the scene and changed our pop culture aspirations forever? To celebrate, we gathered ten of her most showstopping beauty looks. Scroll through to see ten of the virgo’s beauty looks and find out how to get them.
If anyone can pull off statement eyes and lips at the same time, it’s Jolin Tsai. Proof? Check out her look – deep burgundy lips and smoldering smokey eyes. If you want to step into the dark side, use a lip liner that is one shade deeper than your intended lip colour to define the lips.
Doing so would give your lip shape a cleaner edge and help prevent your lipstick from bleeding. Make sure to pay attention to your cupid’s bow and the corners of your mouth for a strong look. While the focus of this look is on your lips, your lashes should still be defined. With a black mascara, apply a coat or two of mascara to your top and bottom lashes.
Jolin’s highlighter is practically blinding in this snapshot. A healthy sheen on the cheekbones is suitable for all skin tones, skin types and occasion.
Steer clear of highlighters with visible shimmer particles in it as these could look too dramatic for everyday wear. Instead, opt for a highlighter with a pearlescent finish and gently buff that into the skin for a seamless, more wearable look.
Jolin’s airy and wispy bangs create an illusion of a longer chin and a sharper face by revealing a little more forehead and adding length to the face. Product in the bang area tends to weigh them down and they get oily faster so if you’re trying to add volume and lift to your bangs, work with clean bangs.
Make sure the hair is wet before you style to help achieve a smoother blow dry and a lot less separation. Next, to achieve Jolin’s airy and wispy bangs, blow dry the bangs with a small flat brush in a forward, and side to side motion.
It’s all about the eyes for this look. Make a statement by remixing your cat-eye with a pop of colour. As for choosing the right hue, opt for a colour that will play up your natural eye shade. If you have hazel eyes like Jolin, a teal liner will bring out the warmth in your eyes. Navy is another wearable shade of blue that can be worn during the day and into the night.
Another colour that looks phenomenal on brown eyes is warm metallic gold. The colour accentuates the yellow flecks around the inner part of the iris, making them shimmer, and your eyes look even brighter. The trick for pulling off a bold coloured eyeliner is to apply the eyeliner in hazy lines on the upper lids before winging it out for extra precision.
We love, love, love this stunning, neutral makeup look. The key to this fresh-faced look is to use makeup to accentuate your natural beauty instead of piling on makeup. Subtly add definition to your cheekbones, apply mascara, add a dab of shimmer at the inner corners of your eyes and top it all off with a tinted lip balm.
Don’t waste time deliberating between keeping your hair long or getting a bob, the answer is simple: get a lob. Achieving this universally flattering and low maintenance hairstyle seen on Jolin is easy.
Put your slightly damp hair into two large braids, two to three maximum and leave them in for a couple of hours. When you take them out, run your fingers through them and add a small amount of texturising spray or cream before leaving your locks to air dry.
Is there any hairstyle that doesn’t look good on this pop diva? Another way to style your lob is to wear it sleek and poker-straight.
To get this #girlboss inspired hairdo, prep your hair with a nourishing hair mask or treatment to boost shine. Next, blast it with your hairdryer, using a downward motion. Finish off by taming any frizz and sealing the ends in with a hair oil or serum.
As we’re gearing up for the fall season, let this moody smokey eye makeup look serve as inspo. One tip is to create the general shape of the smokey eye with a pencil first – it’s easier to move and play around with this texture.
Next, blend out any harsh lines with an eyeshadow blending brush. To create the illusion of bigger eyes, take the pencil higher than the crease of the eyelid. Also, don’t be afraid to extend the colour to the lower lash line to create super smokey eyes.
