2NE1’s Dara on G-Dragon, eyeliner disasters and loving makeup more than chocolate

SINGAPORE, April 28 — 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.
