Korea got this one right, in my opinion, because apparently that little puffy bit under your eyes is considered to be really, really cute?!
It's called "Aegyo sal"
and it's referring to that little puff under your eyes. Most kids have this, and adults usually outgrow it, so having them looks really youthful & cute.
This is with aegyo sal.
This is without.
These aren't eye bags!
I don't want my eye bags to get any bigger (even if it is cute lol) but typically, eye bags are lower than where you would get aegyo sal. I guess this is more of a "puffyness" than an eye bag, I still think it's really interesting that a feature the western world largely sees as undesirable is so close to a beauty ideal elsewhere. Beauty ideals are so weird!!
Some people achieve the look with makeup (you can see a tutorial here).
Others do it with tape, fillers or other surgical procedures.
What do you think of this look?
It's pretty cute, right? I think when achieved with the makeup look (the procedure sounded SCARY lol), it works really well!!! I might even try it, lol, just to see what it would look like.
