Everyday Korean street makeup is frequently "no makeup makeup" style so I wanted to kick it up a notch, incorporating glitter (very common and well-loved in Korea) and silvery-gunmetal eyeshadow to frame the eyes while staying true to the basic shapes for color makeup application. For those interested in Kpop, this look is similar to what you'd see on Korean singing competitions or what girls would wear for special occasions like a night out with friends.

Here you can see the eyeshadow application is different from your typical Western smokey eye because of its distinct almond shape, following a nearly parallel curve to the lash line. The corners of the shadow are also extended to widen the eyes in a subtle way. Lips are given the typical Korean "gradient lip" treatment which gives an innocent, stained lip effect.
The key to the rest of the look is creating a clean and youthful face. Our base is very natural, brightened by bb cream and a liquid highlighter. Brows are kept full and straight and blush is subtly applied to the apples of cheeks.
I had to add in this obligatory "victory" pose which is so quintessentially Korean!
