A household name in K-pop, Hyuna has just made a glorious return with her comeback single ‘Nabillera’. Since her debut in Wonder Girls in 2007, the pop star has cemented her spot as South Korea’s It-girl and fashion darling, with major brand deals with Adidas and Coach, and recently seen in Loewe’s pre-fall collection campaign alongside the ambassadors Sir Anthony Hopkins and supermodel Kaia Gerber.
Undeniably, a force to reckon with—both on- and off-camera, she’s touted for her bold choices in musicality concepts as well as taking an unapologetic stance in her personal life. Since going public in her relationship with notable rapper Dawn, the pair has proudly fought against the odds especially while living within South Korea’s restrictions when it comes to dating within the entertainment industry. Just recently, the power couple had all eyes on them while spotted at the Loewe spring/summer 2023 show in Paris—much to the delight of their fans.
Now, with her latest single, ‘Nabillera’, we’re once again treated to the pop star’s powerful stage presence and unmissable charisma. Touted for her creative and quirky tracks like ‘Red’ and ‘Good Girl’, we all know how Hyuna never shies away from unconventional musical concepts, and for that matter, beauty choices alike. Since teasing the drop two weeks ago on her Instagram, it’s been clear from the promotional pictures alone that we’d be looking forward to some major eye-glamour action in the actual music video, and of course, she always delivers.
Throughout her career, we’ve seen her pull off every make-up trend under the sun flawlessly and it’s no exception in ‘Nabillera’. From fierce graphic liners to colourful eyeshadow, we documented the best of Hyuna’s beauty moments as seen in ‘Nabillera’, below.

A classic combination: white and red
Opting for a cherry red concept, the singer matches her bold red lips with some fruity hair clips. The white graphic liner adds yet another touch of dimension to her lids while she sports flushed pink cheeks to balance the sweet coordination.

A little glitter goes a long way
Although Hyuna sports a similar graphic line detail above her eye throughout the ‘Nabillera’ video, what sets this liner apart is the slight shimmer only noticeable to those who look closely enough. Hyuna’s makeup artist keeps the rest of the look simple with a slight cat-eye and hot pink lips to make the iridescent details really pop in her eyes.

Heavy on the lids
We’ve seen Maddy from Euphoria rock some mini pearls on her eyes, and now Hyuna cranks it up in full swing—with an elaborate extended cat-eye made out of pearls. Arguably the standout look of the video, this embellished liner fully encapsulates Hyuna’s fierce yet girlish image.

Bright baby blues
It’s all about maximalism for Hyuna in this look—from the giant jewels to hot pink sports car parked in a field of florals, it’s only right that the singer matches the same energy in her makeup. Going for a bright blue eyeshadow all over the lids, the singer brings in some glitter under the eyes to match the bling in her fit.

Bright colour on colour
Hyuna always keeps things fresh, though she rocks a similar graphic line detail in this scene, the pastel purple hue goes perfectly with her soft rosy nails and hot pink pout. The Chanel lip ring on top adds just the right amount of edge and grace in true Hyuna style.

Diffused graphic shadow
Pulling back her hair in a high ponytail, Hyuna’s eyes truly pop in this diffused graphic look. The pastel purple contrasts the copper-brown wing to complement her hair colour while coordinating with the dreamy tones of her outfit. The coral tone lip shade adds a youthful pop of colour to brighten up the look.
