I don’t know about you, but I’m always been all about “mermaid” complexion – the goal is skin with a sexy sheen, as if you've just swam a few laps and emerged on the edge of a Siloso beach rockpool. (My foes might say I’m more of an Ursula than Ariel, but heed not those haters!)
The perfect pairing for your moist mermaid-ey mien? Why, “Korean mermaid” eyeliner, natch. Spotted on starlets like Lee Sung Kyung as well as Instagram ulzzangs both legit and aspiring alike, this absolutely adorable micro-trend is essentially a subtle spin on the conventional cat-eye.

Daunted by the difficulty involved? Don’t be. A subtly smudged glimmer on the outer rim of your lids adds an alluring gloss to your entire ensemble, and is embarrassingly easy to execute for both beauty buffs and beginners alike. Here’s how to nail this truly “eye-conic” look for yourself.
