Sandara Park at Mid Valley for Moonshot
The best moments with the K-pop star from the event
Korean pop star and 2NE1 member Sandara Park, known by her fans as Dara, was at Mid Valley last night for a Moonshot launch event. Dara is the face of Moonshot makeup, along with G-Dragon (who sadly wasn’t there). The singers and the makeup brand are under the YG Entertainment Group.
Thousands of fans descended on the mall and surrounded the event enclosure, unleashing ear-piercing screams when she walked in. Oozing elegance and composure, Dara spoke flawless English answering questions from the media during the press conference. She gawked at the number of fans looking down from the upper levels and stayed after the media session to give lucky Sephora Black Card members a gift.
The media session consisted of an introduction to the new makeup Cushions – the Microfit Cushion identified as the GD Cushion, and the Moonflash Cushion named the Dara Cushion. Microfit is a beige, spongy-looking cushion that brightens skin with an anti-darkening formula, and Moonflash has a milky pink texture, luminising skin with a strobing effect and invisible pearls. Both go on super light and undetectable, the apparent secret to Dara’s ultra radiant, youthful-looking complexion.

Here, Dara caught the giggles while answering a question about how she gets all the gunk off her face after big concerts and photo shoots.
Dara made a heart sign (!) to all the media who were busy snapping pics (us included). Isn’t she sweet?
At one point fans on the upper levels started belting out her songs at top volume, prompting her to look up and smile at them. More screams followed.
Before leaving, she snapped a photo with the night’s host Josiah Mizukami, flashing another peace sign.
She then fetched her mobile phone from her manager and snapped photos of us. The crowd surged forward In attempts to get in on her photo.
Then it was really time for her to go, but not before she gave us those signature finger hearts, K-pop style.
Dara then bade her fans farewell, which was greeted with much booing and ‘no’s’.
And for a final adieu, she bade us goodbye too. It was awesome to see her in person and get an up-close view of her flawless, glowing skin. Moonshot CEO Peter told us a G-Dragon fragrance will be launching mid-year, so we can only keep our fingers crossed they’ll be bringing him over too!
