How do you feel to be the newest brand ambassador? I’ve been a loyal user of MAC for long time, and a huge fan of it. So I am over the moon and it’s like a dream that I now joined as an ambassador. Every time I see MAC’s campaign and the fashion week backstage trends their artists created, I feel like I am seeing a piece of art that made up of unique makeup and creativities, which go beyond just a makeup look. So to me, MAC is like a trend setter. I am thrilled and looking forward to this journey!
리사에게 ‘아름다움’이란 자신감이에요. 자신감 있는 내면과 태도에서 아름다움이 시작되는 것 같아요. 여기에 저를 더욱 돋보이게 해줄 메이크업과 스타일링까지 더해지면 자신감은 더욱 커지죠. 촬영할 때 시도해 보고 싶은 메이크업 룩이 있으면 제가 먼저 제안하기도 하고, 늘 다양한 룩을 시도하려고 노력합니다.
What does beauty mean to you and has it been an empowering tool to you? Beauty is confidence to me. I believe that beauty is from within. I usually find beauty in the way people carry confidence in their attitude and inner-self. Yet, an addition of makeup and styling on top of self-confidence? That would be a cherry on top!
처음으로 써본 MAC 제품 립스틱이었어요. MAC의 립 제품은 색상이 다양해서 골라 바르는 재미가 있잖아요.
What was your first ever MAC product? MAC’s lip collection was the first product that I bought from MAC. From the countless number of colors that I always have so much fun choosing colors from MAC’s lip collections.
나만의 뷰티 루틴이나 메이크업 팁이 있다면 평소 내추럴한 메이크업을 즐기는데, 베이스 메이크업은 간단하게 하고 대신 포인트로 립을 살짝 진하게 발라요. 입술 정중앙부터 자연스럽게 그러데이션되도록 바르는 걸 좋아해요.
Any beauty routine/ regimen you want to share? On a casual day, I usually apply a little bit of makeup to present a natural look. I like to start with a simple base and finish with a slightly darker lip color to add some vibrance. Especially when I put on lip makeup, I like to make an ombre lip that naturally gradates by tapping from the center of my lips!
카메라로 사진 찍는 걸 좋아한다고 들었어요. 사진 예쁘게 나오는 리사만의 비법은 필름카메라로 찍으면 아무래도 디지털카메라나 스마트폰으로 찍은 것보다 덜 선명하게 나와요. 그래서 필름카메라로 찍을 땐 아이라인을 더 선명하게 그려서 눈매가 또렷하게 보이도록 한답니다.
We know you like taking photos with your cameras. Can you share tips on how to take good photos of make-up looks? Film cameras are unlike digital cameras so photos don’t come out in the best quality so I draw my eyeliner thicker and bolder than usual to make my eyes look clearer on pictures.
어린 나이에 한국으로 건너와 연습생 시절을 거쳐 지금에 이르기까지 결코 쉽지 않은 시간이었을 텐데 어디서 원동력을 얻었는지 당연히 블랙핑크 멤버들과 팬이에요. 힘들 때나 행복할 때나 항상 제 곁에 함께해줘서 너무 고맙고 감사해요.
You left home at a young age and life in show business has not always been easy. What is your drive through out all these years? I would say that BLACKPINK members and my fans are the driving forces of my life. They go through all the happiest and the saddest moments with me. I am truly grateful for all my members and fans.
만약 아이돌이 되지 않았다면 어릴 때는 모델 일을 해보고도 싶었어요. 사진 찍는 걸 좋아하니 아마 사진과 관련된 일을 하지 않았을까요?
If you were not an idol, what would you be? When I was a little girl, I thought that maybe I could become a model. But taking pictures seems to have caught my attention more lately. Had I not become a singer, I may have been Photographer!
