Hey guys, this is just going to be a mostly image-focused post for today, as I have Penn & Teller's Bullshit playing in the other window.
I just wanted to show you guys a new trend that's popped up (^^ pun intended) in Popteen; the Puffy Eye Bag trend! Now, in the Western beauty world, having eye bags is considered to be ageing and should be avoided at all costs. But in Korea, this trend thrives as it's believed to give a cute, youthful and 'happy' appearance to the eyes. I personally have natural undereye bags that don't require anything but a swipe of shimmer eyeshadow on the tear duct area.
As Popteen has become less gyaru and more focused on girlier items but is still fashionable, I can really understand as to why they would feature an entire several page spread to it. However, most of the models have very slight bags, so the idea is to use a shimmer eyeshadow and then a light brown colour to contour underneath to accentuate the eye bag. This sounds absolutely insane and something that has my Mum furrowing her brow. As someone that watches a lot of Kdrama, I love this trend and think it just adds that little something extra to your eye makeup.
I'll let the scans speak for themselves!
Will you be trying the trend?
Until next time,
