Welcome back to another installment of For Your Viewing Pleasure, where we take time out of the week to curate a set of photos from the K-pop landscape.

Many factors go into a stunning photoshoot and even the slightest change can make a huge difference to the end product. From the basic clothing choices to accessories and setting, with further considerations into lighting and post-shoot edits, the list goes on. Makeup is high on the list of considerations in orchestrating the perfect photograph, especially for close up shots. Jessi‘s bolder makeup choice forms a huge part of her persona as a charismatic solo artist, whereas Kisum flits between sultry and lovely. For male artists, makeup style is far less obvious but more prominent in concept heavy photoshoots like album promotional images. Both Yesung and Hyunjin have their features well outlined, with focus drawn to their glossier lips and tint of eye shadow. Male or female, makeup cannot be neglected when it comes to showing off style.
