When you talk about dolly eyes or a dolly look, the Japanese Gyaru look comes to mind. However, when it comes to how the Korean stars do up their makeup, I’m seeing a different trend. They have strong, thick brows and they always use black eyeliner! I’m not much of a fan of black but I am always open to experimenting new colors.
I am still a klutz at makeup so I don’t think I can easily replicate their look but I’ll try. This month’s pink box was filled with lovely new products for Korea’s fall collection. Just check it out :
Lovely, gorgeous eyeshadow palette to look out for. Just check out the packaging, it’s so dollish and girly!
1. Apply the lighest shade #1 Girlish Beige tone to entire upper eyelid.
2. Graduate #2 Cute Brown tone to the central part of the eyelid.
3. Use shadow tip to apply and graduate #3 Shadow Brown, the darkest shade along the eye line.
We also have the Lash Perm 3 Step Volumecara which is a unique mascara with 3 steps, from PURE & INNOCENT DOLLY EYES (Define, clean volume (step 1)) to LOVELY DOLLY EYES (Full, glamorous volume (step 2)) to PARTY DOLLY EYES (Dramatic, smoky volume (step 3)).
Just twist it according for the type of volume you wish to achieve.
We also have a few liners in the Pink Box to further accentulate the big eyed look. Check out these liners:
Also check out this lipstick that is of a pretty, dolly-inspired shade:
For my eyes, I used these 3 products!
The Dolly 3 Steps Eyeshadow Palette in BR401 Purity Doll, Lash Perm 3 Step Volumecara & the Dot Liner in BK801. Then I realized, I had lost my eyelash curler and because I am always in false eyelashes. I never had a need to use a curler till today when I was trying on the Volumecara!
I know the lashes do not look that prominent but this mascara is really great and easy to use. I love the brush because it managed to coat my lower lashes without smudging at all. There have been some other brands of mascaras which I’d tried and I never fail to get bits of mascara on my lower eyelid when using it. However, this Etude House Lash Perm 3 Step Volumecara was really very user-friendly!
The photos do it no justice partly because I did not manage to curl my lashes and I have lashes which naturally point downwards. But you can see it did lengthened and also created much volume for my lashes in the above photo. I used Step 3: PARTY DOLLY LOOK for this.
To take nicer photos, I decided to add on a pair of false eyelashes. There’s no hard and fast rules when it comes to makeup. And I know of many ladies who use both false eyelashes on top of their mascara-clad lashes for a more defined and dolly look. This is great for clubbing or a night out makeup image!
BTW, I love the Lip & Eye Makeup remover, I thought it would leave my lids feeling oily but it didn’t. In fact, I could easily apply a new layer of makeup on. This a decent makeup remover that is worth trying. To my delight, it removes the Volumecara with much ease.
