P.O.P. Hold It Down: Pops Of Color To Brighten Any Look

We've all had that moment in the morning where we want to look put together, but not too conservative. We want to wear a dress, but not look like we are headed to a business meeting or we want to wear that button down, but not look too stuffy.

Don't stress it.

The great thing about keeping your look casual is you can always brighten it up with a little bit of makeup.

Whether it be a pop of color on your lips, your nails or eyelids -- makeup is always there to save the day.

A pop of color on your lips evens out your look without having your lips be a distraction.

A little bit of color can make all the change. That a-line dress you had on pre-pop of color made you look like 'Plane Jane'. Thanks to a little power of lipstick, you've quickly transformed into 'Jane'.

Play around with different shades.

A vibrant eye shadow can also create the look your going for without over doing it. You can go from drab to fab within a matter of minutes and a quick blend of colors.

Not much of an eye shadow person?

Don't trip, a pop of eyeliner serves the same purpose, and this whole time you thought black was the only color they offered in eyeliners. Several cosmetic brands offer bright color eyeliners that will make not just your eyes pop, but your entire look.

Don't forget your nails!

You don't have to go over board, but a simple pop of color on your nails will brighten up any day and put some life into that crisp white button down you're wearing -- that was more so wearing you.

YES! It def pops & I'm sure urban has some. I know for a fact that sephora has their own brand of glitter eyeliners & they're pretty amazing. I had the gold, but I didn't use it faithfully & it ended up drying out @danidee
That glitter eyeliner is CRAZY cool! I'm trying to figure out who makes it. Maybe it's Urban Decay?

The KPop Diet Issue
The Kpop industry is not only an industry of talent and singing, but an industry that is also hyper focused on the image and "beauty" of the idols that they "produce". Miss A's Suzy, Wonder Girls' Yubin, Wonder Girl's Hyelim, Apink's Eunji, Secret's Hyosung, F(x)'s Luna all underwent drastic weight loss transformations in order to maintain the public image of "beauty". Of course these few artists do not even start to represent the issue that is in the Kpop Industry. Twice's Jihyo was bluntly told by JYP that she had to lose weight and that was her flaw. After debuting she also received a lot of hate for her weight and promptly lost a lot shutting up her haters but also instigating complaints from fans saying that she was beautiful the way she was, which I agree with. Many artists have followed unhealthy diets, literally starving themselves in order to achieve the figure required of them by their company and by the image the kpop industry sets up for them. These examples are not limited to these artists but these are just some examples of people who have done these. Sistar's Soyou ate only one meal a day, IU ate one apple, one sweet potato and one protein shake a day, After School's UEE eats only 1000kcals a day (that's half the recommended daily calorie intake!), 2AM's Changmin ate 2 blocks of tofu and ran for 6 hours everyday, Sistar's Dasom ate only cucumbers for 3 weeks, Park Boram is probably one of the more extreme examples of the chaos the kpop industry produces in the minds of young and growing people. She participated in Super Star K2 at the age of 18 and placed in the top 8! Afterwards, though, she eventually lost 70 pounds in order to debut! While this may have taken place over the course of 4 years that is a ridiculous amount of weight to lose! She released an album last year called "Celepretty" revealing her completely changed figure. But the Kpop industry is changing, a bit too slowly, but it's changing. Korea's first plus-sized model, Vivian Geeyang Kim, shared her thoughts about not fitting the "ideal Korean image" in an interview with Koreaboo's partner OOgeeWoogee. You can read more about it here - The people represented above are only a small proportion of the people who suffer from this issue and mentality. I did not mean to exclude anyone and this is also an issue in many nations, the issue of an image that isn't possible by healthy means. Haters gonna hate but we have to show our support for our artists!!! Share the love!!!!!! KpopINT will keep you updated!
