Korean pop culture is getting more and more wide-spread across the globe; and here in Taiwan, it’s huge. There are cable TV channels here dedicated to K-Pop (Korean pop music) and K-Drama, and a variety of Korean beauty brands in store.
Anyone a little familiar with Korean pop cultures would know that plastic surgery is very common there, so most (if not all) Korean idols of recent times, would have had some procedures to make them into the beauty they are today. However plastic surgery aside, what I love the most about the Korean beauty ideals, is that when it comes to makeup, it’s all about flawless glowy skin, clean eye makeup (whether it be natural or bold), and most importantly, FULL EYEBROWS.
The Korean brows are full, thick and straight (with little or no arch).
Note that the brows start above the bridge of the nose – this also has a slimming and contouring effect on the bridge.
They end about 1.5cm past the outer corners of the eyes. Shorter brows give a more youthful appearance, whilst extended brows give the illusion of a slimmer face.
Match the brows to the hair colour, so the entire look is natural and harmonised.
The straight brows soften bold eye makeup – so it’s more elegant and less “whatcha looking at bi@tch!???”
I just adore the Korean brows – the full and straight shape is modern, flattering and makes the face more youthful looking. With my very sparse brows, it’s somewhat difficult to achieve, but I try, try and try everyday! And hopefully I’ll get good enough at it soon to do a tutorial post on it.
With the 90′s well past us and now classified as “retro”, it’s time that we all banish the thin, overly arched brows don’t you think? Let’s all embrace the Korean brows!!!
