Article/Interview: Today Online Singapore~ “2NE1’s Dara Reveals her Eyeliner Disasters, Why She Loves Make-Up More than Chocolate, and Getting Teased by G-Dragon”

Another interesting read! ❤ I like how casual this interview seemed and how the article was written. ^^ I can just imagine the easy banter Dara and GD have! YG Family seems really close.. XD I remember the way Taeyang teased Dara too, even Seungri and Dae tease her a lot.. XD

2NE1’s Dara reveals her eyeliner disasters


2NE1’s Dara says she can’t put on eyeliner by herself.

The K-pop star also tells why she is loving make-up more than chocolate and getting teased by G-Dragon

SINGAPORE – For someone who always looks so put-together, 2NE1’s Sandara Park admitted that she is, like most regular girls, actually hopeless at applying her own eyeliner.

Affectionately known as “Dara”, the 31-year-old was in Singapore for the launch of cosmetics brand moonshot’s new products, the Microfit Cushion and the Moonflash Cushion, both available at Sephora. The moonshot brand is from YG Plus, the lifestyle subsidiary of YG Entertainment, which is the label to which Park is signed.

 While she’s here, you just might catch her having fun at Universal Studios Singapore (“I always go to USS”, she said) or eating chilli crab and pepper crab at Jumbo Seafood. “Jumbo is my favourite restaurant,” she enthused.

Although she loves makeup as much as the next girl, Park said, “Actually, I’m not good at using it. I don’t know how to put eyeliner on by myself,” she said. “Once, I drew my eyeliner on by myself, and when my friend saw me, she was really shocked. She said, ‘You look really scary!’ It was really big and scary.”

She added: “That’s why I use the cushion, and lip gloss. I’m really into the Moonflash cushion right now because it makes your skin look so much fresher, and it’s really easy to use. I think skin is the most important thing when you do your make-up, because if you have nice skin, you will look good in any make-up.

What if she had to choose between giving up make-up and giving up chocolate? “It’s really hard to pick. But maybe I’m going to give up chocolate – for now,” she sighed.


While Park is the face of the Moonflash Cushion, which is used as a brightening base or highlighter, fellow YG label mate G-Dragon is the face of the Microfit Cushion, which is recommended for touch-ups. We put it to Park: Between her and G-Dragon, who’s prettier?

“Ah, it’s really hard!” she giggled. “He’s also baby-faced. And he’s really cute. But maybe it’s me, because I’m a girl and he’s a boy. I’m pretty; he’s handsome.”

And no, they don’t fight over who has better skin. But, she revealed, “He’s always teasing me about anything and everything. He’s really naughty. And he’s really funny.”

We’re not sure if they tease each other about their eyeliner, but that may be a moot point because Park predicts the next makeup trend will be the barely-there look. “I think nude make-up is really nice, and I think that will be the trend for this year – very natural make-up that looks like you don’t have make-up on,” she said.

And, with her new Moonflash Cushion, “everybody can look like me,” she laughed.

Even while eating chilli or pepper crab.

The Microfit Cushion and the Moonflash Cushion by moonshot are available at Sephora.

Article/Interview: Today Online: 5 questions with 2NE1’s Sandara Park


SINGAPORE — You will probably never catch Korean superstar Sandara Park without a fresh slick of liner across her lids. A member of hit K-Pop girl group 2NE1 and the new face of Seoul-based make-up label, Clio, Park slaps on some kohl “even on days when I don’t have an official schedule”. Now that’s something we can all take heed of. Ahead of 2NE1’s performance at tomorrow’s Asia Style Collection show at the Singapore Expo, we learnt more about Park’s beauty secrets and why she just can’t get enough of eyeliners. ZHANG WEIFANG


How do you keep your skin in tip-top condition?

Sandara Park: My beauty secret to achieving that rosy and fair complexion is to get a good night’s sleep. If you don’t have the luxury of sufficient sleep because of a packed schedule, use facial masks (to moisturise and brighten skin). Whenever I feel that my skin is becoming tired and dry, I will apply a sheet mask before bed every night for a whole week to replenish the moisture in my skin.


What’s the one make-up item that you can’t live without?

Eyeliner. Even when I don’t have an official schedule for the day, I still draw on eyeliner. I like making my eyes look clear and defined by filling in the spaces between my lashes with black eyeliner. I also love adding a winged tip. Nowadays, I prefer using Clio’s Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner to liquid liners because it’s so easy and convenient to use.
