Serve These Korean Makeup Looks At The Office
1. Gradient Lips
Also known as the “popsicle lip”, the gradient lips quickly rose from being a Korean makeup technique to a worldwide makeup trend! The dewy appearance plus the subtle, gradient hues can single-handedly brighten up your face. While it may look like a ton of work compared to the usual way you apply your lipstick, it’s actually quite easy to pull off. Here’s how to ace the gradient lip makeup:
- Apply concealer to your lips to cover the creases on your lips.
- Starting from your inner lip, apply your favorite bright lip gloss or lip tint up to the center of your lips in a dotting motion.
- Lightly dab your lips together to smudge the color. You can reapply the same color to make it look brighter and repeat the dabbing process after.
- Blend out the colors with your outer lips’ concealer using your fingers or a cotton swab until you achieve a natural-looking gradient.
2. Straight Korean Eyebrows
Forget what you already know about eyebrow shapes – straight brows are the new on-fleek eyebrow look to slay! Spotted from various K-idols, Korean eyebrows take on a sleeker, straighter form and are a few shades lighter than their natural hair colors. And honestly, we can’t argue that this simple change is a big step in getting that Korean natural makeup look. Plus, it’ll probably save you a couple of minutes trying to perfect that eyebrow arch.
3. “Puppy Eyes” Korean-Style Eyeliner
If cat eyeliners make you look fierce, the puppy eyes eyeliner will do exactly what puppy eyes do – make your eyes look dolly and innocent! Instead of making a winged tip, draw from the center of your eyelids and follow the natural slope of your lids. To perfect this Korean-style eyeliner with ease, use the ultra-precise Maybelline Hypersharp Liquid Pen Eyeliner.
4. Aegyo Sal Makeup
Oh, to live in a time where noticeable under-eyes aren’t such a bad thing. We definitely have Korean beauty culture to thank for that! The aegyo sal is that little bump under your eyelids that appears more prominent when you laugh. To accentuate your aegyo sal with makeup, draw a thin, curved line slightly under your eyes with a highlighter shade and blend the edges. Then, conceal the dark circles below it or use a slightly darker shadow to accentuate the aegyo sal even more.
5. Red Eyeshadow
Do you know what else we initially didn’t expect the Korean beauty culture to embrace? It’s the “just-cried” eyeshadow look. The perfect mix of adorable and fierce, this Korean eyeshadow look uses red tones to make your eyes pop without being over the top! Nail this Korean eyeshadow look with a red eyeshadow palette. You’d be excited to try on different shades with the PINKFLASH #PinkDessert 12-shade eyeshadow palette, which includes matte, shimmer, glitter, and metallic textures in one pad!
6. Peach Blush
So far, these Korean makeup styles are going for the bright-but-not-too-bold look, and the peach blush trend surely fits right into this category! As an amazing Korean makeup look for tan skin, the stunning morenas simply can’t miss trying the Korean peach makeup look. If you’re still on the hunt for the perfect Korean peach makeup product, we highly recommend this Happy Skin Color Play Peach Bum mousse which you can use on your eyes and lips too.
