Not sure how long the blue eyeshadow trend will last, but have any of you caught on to the Korean makeup trend or even know that one exists? Here I am often talking about Korean skincare that at some point you would think I’m bound to talk about Korean makeup right? Well, yes that’s correct. I have come across some Youtube videos explaining the differences between American versus Korean makeup looks, and I’ve definitely seen quite a bit of Pony videos to know the difference between the two styles that I can’t help wonder if the blue eyeshadow trend is a response to the K world.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I feel like in Korean makeup these days, the current trend is pink and corral eyeshadow shades. And I feel like the colors go on more sheer where it’s a hint of color versus heavy pigmentation the way it’s applied here in America. I can definitely catch on to both styles liking some aspects of each and making it my own. Currently, I’m liking corrals for my eyes in a minimalist toned down way, and I’m liking highlighters and bronzers on my face so I can look like a sun-kissed Cali girl. I also can’t help but like the shimmery eyeshadow shades for special occasions. I just think it’s a great way to add pizzazz to anything. So I guess you can say depending on my mood, I’ll straddle the line and borrow from both styles to make my own.
I will say that heavy eye lining or mascara wearing is not for me. I’ve really tried and when I do that’s usually when I get a sty. So I reserve eyelining for special occasions.
