Look #1: Thin Eyeliner X Glitter 


One of the most popular looks to come out of Korea is rock a thin eyeliner and glitter. This look is very popular because eye makeup is a crucial element for Korean-style makeup.

If you weren’t naturally graced with darker eyes, you can easily test the eye colors in YouCam Makeup app to see what you’d look like if you were! Darken your eyes with the preset La Di Da look, or try Makeup and then Eye Color to try any number of eye colors you can imagine. >> Download FREE YouCam Makeup app & Try!

Look #3: Long Eyelashes


Another Korean eye makeup trend that is very popular is long eyelashes. Instead of thick fake eyelashes, Korean makeup lovers prefer natural, long ones, often achieved with mascara and partial false lashes.

This can be especially tough to replicate in real life, so having the Crimson Glow look at your disposal in the YouCam Makeup app makes all the difference.
