The Eye Area
Having thick, straight eyebrows has been a popular trend in Korea because it gives off a youthful and innocent vibe. To make your brows look natural, choose an eyebrow pencil that is two shades lighter than your hair color, and draw feathery strokes on your eyebrows. Fill in the bottom of the arch to make the brows look straighter. You can easily achieve this type of brow through the help of the Etude House Tint My 4-Tip Brow. Thanks to its unique applicator design, you can have those thick and straight eyebrows in no time!
For ulzzang makeup, you must opt for an eyeshadow palette with bright-colored, pastel-like shades. It will make you look chic and cute like an ulzzang instead of looking too dramatic or seductive. The Etude House Play Color Eyes Cherry Blossom comes with 10 highly-pigmented shades that consist of warm pinks, peach tones, beiges, and reds. This will lend a warm, glowing look fit for an ulzzang girl.
6. Eye Liner
Korean makeup uses eyeliners for achieving a more defined eye look. It also creates the illusion of bigger eyes, which is a foundation of the ulzzang look. Moreover, it can make your eyelashes look fuller and thicker. Apply the liner as close to the lash line as you can to look ulzzang. Brown eyeliners, as well as black ones, are the most common for this trend. The TONYMOLY Backgel Eye Liner is available in both shades and promises to create a smokey or cat-eye look that lasts all day.
Highlighters can also aid in making the eyes look bigger. For that ulzzang look, apply some highlighter on the eyelid as well as in the inner corner of the eyes. It has a brightening effect and makes the eyes look cute and fresh. The Benefit Cosmetics High Beam Liquid Highlighter boasts a creamy formula that brings out the skin’s natural radiance. It can also be applied to the cheekbones and other parts of the face that you want to highlight.
The eyelashes play a significant role in beautifying the eyes. Thick, full, and curly lashes, which can be easily achieved using the right mascara if you are not born with them, are one of the defining factors of an ulzzang. The Innisfree Skinny Microcara can provide naturally-curled eyelashes using its micro brush that coats even the smallest lashes. However, if you still crave for more thickness and fullness, you may want to use some wispy false eyelashes. Just don’t forget to not get it too thick so you won’t miss the real essence of an ulzzang.
