Koreans can think of anything and make a trend out of nothing. And it’s all because they are so influential in setting trends. So much so that now, this korean puffy eyes look which many Korean actresses and singers are spotting have caused normal folks to resort to plastic surgery. Yes, Koreans (and everyone whose just as crazy as them) are undergoing the knife just to have these fatty lower lids permanently there. Why? Because you look feminine, innocent and girly.
I have puffy eyes and now they are making it into a trend so isn’t it great? Let’s hope someday the Koreans decide that muffin tops and love handles are the new sexy and I would be one hot oh-la-la babe.
So now Korean-wannabes can achieve the Aegyo Sal korean eye bags look with Etude House’s Dear Girls Cute Eyes Maker. It’s an eye makeup wand that comes with 2 different colors of shimmery pigmented powder on each end. Step 1 is a light brown shade while Step 2 is a pearlized pink shade.
And it’s pretty simple to use if you follow the instruction sheet shown above. Create a shadow using the Step 1 and fill up the area above using Step 2 to make it pop and look puffy. Resulting in CUTE EYES or so the product states.
My dark eye rings were screaming out loud as I applied the Cute Eyes Maker. I’m not sure if I am doing it right or not. I did use tons of concealer before applying. Just to make sure I wasn’t accentuating my dark eye rings any further.
Anyway, this was fun to play around with. I already feel more Korean with my now very obvious puffy eyes @_@
Beauty trends keep evolving and some are just really plain strange and weird. Remember the eye bag look I’d blogged about previously where several makeup tutorials have popped up all over the net, teaching you how enhance these “smiley bags” with tools ranging from white eye shadow to double eye lid tape?
So I have these very obvious 笑袋 aka Smile bags which I usually photoshop away but sometimes miss out when I’m too busy correcting other flaws on my face. And honestly, I don’t know if I should laugh or cry because these are all the rage now. Yes, puffy under eyes are the latest beauty trend now.
So much so that Koreans (and everyone whose just as crazy as them) are undergoing the knife just to have these fatty lower lids permanently there. Why? Because you look feminine, innocent and girly. A new aesthetic procedure has emerged; known as Korean Love Band Eyes or Youthlites, it is designed to mimic the natural youthful fullness found in the skin just below the lower lashes.
