Korean Makeup Trends

Asian makeup trends tend to be my favorite because it tends to complement my face better than the American makeup trends. American trends being contour; big lips; and huge, thick lashes. Each country has their own trends, but today I would like to display the Korean makeup trends.

Before I get started I would like to say that the normal makeup trends in Korea is a bit different from K-Pop style in a few different ways. If you would like, I could do a post on it soon. Another thing is I am not Korean nor do I live in Korea, this is just me appreciating and sharing some key makeup points in Korean makeup styles.

Natural Circle Lenses // A lot of people tend to wear natural looking brown or a black contacts. I am pretty sure they are all prescription contact lenses because they are worn on a regular basis. These lenses are rim-less, so there is no black edges, just one opaque color.

Straight Eyebrows // Pretty self-explanatory. In all these pictures above, these lovely ladies are rocking straight brows. They are also not very strong and match the color of their hair.

Dewy Skin // All of the photos are showing matte skin EXCEPT the top row, middle picture (Jessica Jung). A really prominent trend in Korean makeup is the dewy skin. Which gives off a more youth-full look. A lot of BB Creams in Korea are of a very dewy finish and give off almost an oily look.

Downward Eyeliner // In this trend, a lot people tend to apply their eyeliner along their eye and have a wing that extends straight out. It works well with the typical eastern Asian eyelid because it enhances the the eye-smile.

Aegyo Sal // Means 'baby fat' in Korean, I think. It refers to highlighting the skin/fat right underneath the eyes. IT IS NOT DARK CIRCLES! A lot of people get this confused, but if you look at the pictures above you can see ^_^

Defined Eyelashes // Eyelashes are very defined, not very voluminous, and thick. It has a very clean finish and look.

Glossy Lips // Glossy lips is pretty common and I really like the color Krystal (top left corner) is wearing. Super cute ^_^

Lip Gradients // Super popular, but none of the pictures seem to have an example >.<  I have included one below to see an exact example. It gives off the the illusion of cuter lips ^_^

Tiffany is rocking the downward eyeliner, defined eyelashes, and circle lenses.
