#HangoverMakeUp sees women smudging their make-up and making their eyes look puffy on purpose.

The trend appears to have originated in South Korea and sees women drawing little bags under their eyes. (This is known as “aegyo-sal“. In Korea, a little puffy eye is believed to be a sign of youthfulness.)

And to achieve that redness look, you put a little blush under the eyes.

Trending in Japan: Under eye blush look. Apparently its a seductive look as it resembles the look when you are drunk x'D #undereyeblush #makeup Source: yukolin93
