14 Makeup & Fashion Moments From Fall Comebacks We’re Obsessed With
It’s getting cold over this side of the world, but K-pop idols are making sure to keep things hot all year long. For the past two months, we’ve seen iconic makeup and fashion looks take-over our screens, and we’re so here for it. Every single K-pop MV is a piece of art, but the first half of fall brought some pretty iconic looks with it that need to be highlighted and receive a round of applause. So get ready to scroll down and enjoy some of the best beauty and fashion moments that fall music videos have given us so far.
TWICE – I Can’t Stop Me
This whole video is aesthetic dreams. The ’60s and ’70s vibes, the glittery makeup looks, all the denim, and the suits… TWICE, as always, takes the world by storm, one glamorous-step at a time.
LOONA – Why Not
This was a very-much anticipated comeback that totally delivered. From their boho dresses to the face jewels, suits, and fringes, this video came to life to remind us that LOONA is not only multitalented, but is also an innovative, always-down-to-try-something-new kind of group.
MAMAMOO – Dingga
No one does glam like MAMAMOO, and Dingga was no exception. As always, all of their outfits and makeup looks stand out, but a special one – that became viral in a matter of minutes – was the sparkly face masks all of the members wear in one of the scenes. MAMAMOO says “stay safe, everyone”!
Lee Suhyun – Alien
Cute, fun, playful, colorful, unexpected… these are the words to describe both Lee Suhyun in general and the aesthetic for her latest comeback. We’re simply obsessed with the colors, the jewels, the nails, the psychedelic prints, the accessories, and of course, her bright turquoise hair.
MONSTA X – Love Killa
This one was a comeback for the books. Besides the song being a complete bop, every single outfit in this video is pristine and just perfection. Hyungwon especially takes the crown for this particular one with an aesthetic that’s so simple yet powerful. The hairstyling, the red leather jacket, the printed shirt, and of course the orange glasses being the cherry on top, here’s to hoping we see more of these looks in many more stages to come.
NCT U – Make a Wish
NCT U took advantage of two of this season’s most popular jewelry trends and took them to the next level: pearls and chains. All of the members rock layers and layers of different pearl and chain-like necklaces with pretty much every outfit they wear throughout the whole video, adding the perfect touch of glam and exuberance for this concept.
Weki Meki – Cool
Besides the fact that the video and all of the outfits in it are very cool – no pun intended – Weki Meki truly brought everything to the table and more. All of the members rock a very specific and distinctive makeup look, giving everyone the chance to choose their faves to recreate or get inspo from. But Lua takes the crown with her gorgeous new pixie haircut. She absolutely rocks it!
Joohoney – Intro: Ambition
Joohoney came out with not only a great mixtape but also some great makeup moments that we’ll never be able to forget. Simple details – especially around his eyes and on his hair – completely changed the aesthetic of the video.
BLACKPINK – Lovesick Girls
BLACKPINK came back full force and delivered hundreds of makeup and fashion moments that we’re still obsessed with. Lisa’s light-up jacket look in particular just blew everyone’s minds away. Did you know the jacket – designed by Céline – sold out only 50 minutes after the video was released? Yep, that’s Lisa’s power. Also, all the accessories, from the long boots to the earrings, necklaces, and rings, accompanied by her stunning makeup, turned this into one of Lisa’s most badass looks to present.
Stray Kids – Back Door
Hyunjin and Felix didn’t come to play. Hyunjin’s pink hair, paired with his rosé-smokey-eyes makeup became a trend right after the video debuted, and it’s very easy to see why: he was just born for it. On the other side, Felix has been gifting us amazing eye-jewel looks for some time now, and this comeback wasn’t an exception: the rhinestones under his eyes plus the smokey eyeliner are a combo for the win.
Wonho – Open Mind
We don’t really need to explain why this video became viral, but let me say this: this double-sided-zip sweater sold out the same day the video was released, and when people were not able to find it anymore, fans turned the web around trying to find similar sweaters. That’s just the power of Wonho.
Taeyeon – #GirlsSpkOut
Such a simple detail can add so much to a makeup look. Taeyeon’s easy black outer-liner, which she sports in the music video, is one of those looks we just can’t wait to try for ourselves in the near future.
TXT – Blue Hour
TXT always manages to deliver, and this is another aesthetically pleasing video, but Yeonjun gets a special mention for this comeback. The pink locks, the long strands of pink hair in the black cowboy-like look, the fluffy pink crop top… he managed to blow minds away with every single look he showed us, and we’re not mad about it.
A.C.E – Goblin (Favorite Boys)
Now… where to begin? This video is pure aesthetic gold. The mixture of traditional clothes with contemporary street styles, the makeup, the accessories, the hair, the sheer tops, the wigs, the beads on Jun’s lashes – it’s one outstanding look after another. This video is the perfect example that demonstrates fashion and makeup are for everyone, no matter your gender. Just play around and wear whatever you like!
