Last night was incredible. Everyone was there, you drank a lot and you danced. Sure, you embarrassed yourself, and maybe peed on a stranger’s lawn, but so did everyone else hopefully. But now it’s morning, and you have to roll out of bed at some point. And it hurts to even walk to your Advil, right? You can’t even bring yourself to look in the mirror.
Yet, while you’re suffering and wishing for certain death, another Korean beauty trend is picking up steam, and the objective is to look hungover. So, like this:
Except, to get this Korean beauty look requires makeup and not a bender. Here’s how they’re doing it:
In Asia, puffy lower lids aren’t a bad thing. Aegyo-sal (“charming fat”) is considered a sign of youth and happiness, rather than lack of sleep and bloating. So, Korean girls are using Etude House’s Dear Girls Cute Eyes Maker ($17) to get the look. According to the brand, aegyo-sal is the “cute pinch of ‘pudge’ that appears underneath smiling eyes.”
To recreate the look of redness in the skin that comes from getting loaded on cheap wine (or anything), girls are applying blush under their eyes. You can use any blush you like, as long as it has a reddish tint.
The Finishing Touch
Smudge your liner. Smudge your mascara. That’s it. Now you look hungover, but you didn’t drink anything. And because you didn’t drink anything, your skin will actually be glowing and won’t look like an old bag.
