K-beauty and J-beauty trends have had a tight grip on us for the past few years. Since then, we’ve been obsessed with achieving the perfect aegyo-sal look like our favourite K-idols and J-drama actresses.

For the uninitiated, aegyo-sal is the little pocket of fat beneath our eyelids. Enhancing this opens up our eyes and gives the entire look more depth.

In most makeup tutorials, beauty gurus will swipe a line of light eyeshadow over the line where the aegyo-sal ends with a flat-tipped brush.

This can sometimes cause an uneven distribution of pigment that makes the aegyo-sal line look choppy.

Thankfully, you’ll no longer have to struggle with this problem because Japanese beauty brand Canmake has launched liners that are specifically designed for highlighting the aegyo-sal!

The best part is that the shade it features is reminiscent of strawberry milk, which also helps to add a more youthful edge to the look.

The Canmake 3 Way Slim Eye Rouge Liner in #03 Icy Pink may look like a regular eyeliner but while you can certainly use it as one, it is best used as an aegyo-sal highlighter.

It has a sheer formula that won’t make your aegyo-sal liner too jarring. Instead, it will naturally melt into your skin and blend out with your eyeshadow for a natural looking under eye look.

The shade #03 Icy Pink isn’t as striking as you might think and reminds us more of a cold glass of strawberry milk that’s creamy and sweet.

There isn’t any science behind the application of this liner too. Simply feel for the fold where your aegyo-sal ends and gently sweep a line over it. The sheer pink formula will create a sweet-looking shadow over this pocket of fat and open up your entire eye look.

Canmake 3 Way Slim Eye Rouge Liner in shade #03 Icy Pink retails for S$16.37, available at Yesstyle.
