After what feels like a decade of waiting, BTS member J-Hope finally dropped his first solo mixtape, Hope World, last week. (I never thought we’d live in a world where he revealed his skin-care routine to Allure before blessing us with his “Hixtape,” but here we are.) Fans have been celebrating the big release in a way that Allure truly respects and appreciates: via eye makeup. One colorful look, in particular, has been taking over Twitter. Elizabeth Zárate, also known as @whitesidessoul, transformed one of her lids into the vibrant album artwork of “Hope World” almost to a T. She carefully brushed on neon eye shadows and drew on shapes with liner, leaving “ARMY,” as BTS fans are called, all around the world in awe.
The full process took Zárate about six hours, in total. (In case you were wondering, you could listen to the 20-minute-long mixtape 18 times in that timespan.) “I got inspired by the message of his songs,” the teen from Spain tells Allure. “The part that took the longest was all the little drawings, especially the airplane.” With airplanes being a major theme for Hope World, fans were seriously impressed with the detail Zárate put into that particular element of the look.
Zárate started off her Hope World eye makeup masterpiece by sweeping on the red and purple shadows from a rainbow palette like the BH Cosmetics Take Me Back to Brazil Palette. Next, she proceeded with the teeny-tiny sketches with a black liquid liner (you can find our list of recommendations here) and the colorful creams from the Kryolan Aquacolors Palette. Then, Zárate rimmed her lower lashes with green eye shadow and created the lettering for Hope World over her brows, which she filled in with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade.
Although Zárate’s look has garnered the most attention, several other fans have experimented with “Hope World”-inspired looks. One teen even created matching lip art.
Someone else added glitter to her look.
Bethany Paj Ly topped one of her brows with the quintessential airplane.
Another fan took inspiration from the melted vibes for her take on Hope World makeup. I can imagine J-Hope pulling this off just as well.
These makeup artists turned Hope World into colorful liner looks.
I can’t help but wonder what eye makeup based on the album cover for Suga’s mixtape Agust D would look like. Graphic liner, perhaps? Excuse me while I try something out.
