Beauty Around the World: "Hangover" Blush
Welcome to our new series where we share beauty trends from all over the world! Here at Influenster, we have a thirst for knowledge on all things beauty in international places. So, we're dedicating this series to update you on the must-know beauty buzz in various parts of the world! Our first destination? Asia!
Normally when we’re hungover, we do everything in our power to cover it up. Concealer, white eyeliner, sunglasses–you name it, and it’s in our purse. Well, it turns out in Japan and Korea, some beauty buffs actually want to look like they painted the town last night. Read more for the scoop and how to get the look!
The scoop: The trend consists of two parts: Korean "aegyo-sal" and Japanese "me no shita chiiku." Aegyo-sal, meaning "charming fat,” involves highlighting puffiness under the eyes by contouring. Me no shita chiiku, meaning “under-eye blush,” adds that "sickly" element. Hear us out!
Why it’s a thing: The so-called puffy bags and hint of redness under the eyes makes wearers appear more young and playful. See for yourself!
