Instead of sweeping the blush on top of the contour back and forth, they put their blush right under their eyes to create the ‘hangover blush’ effect. Also, they would use a glittery white pencil to draw thicker lines under their eyes to represent the ‘eye bags’ after the big night out.

Japanese like to follow western beauty standards, even though that western and Asian figures are different from head to toe.

Thrusting the eyelid trainer in their eyelids can create a second layer, the double eyelid, to make their eyes look more defined.

Although these trends seem very bizarre to the rest of the world, feel free to try as long as they make you feel good, which is all they are about! Women have the rights to make them feel great about themselves!
