Achieve Bigger & Brighter Looking Eyes with Aegyo-Sal (Eye Smile)!

So you're probably wondering, what the heck is aegyo-sal and what does it do?

What is aegyo-sal?

Aegyo-sal is the Korean term for youthlites (aka love bands), the eye pouches located under the lower lash line. They are also sometimes referred to as "eye smile" and most children have it. The aegyo-sal is  associated with a muscle located under your eyes and as the eye area is quite delicate, the eye pouches can slowly disappear when one starts to age and the muscle stretches and thins out. (So, if this muscle continues to be thick enough as you age, your aegyo-sal will still be visible.)

The eye on the left has no aegyo-sal while the eye on the right does. Notice the difference?

What does aegyo-sal do?

The aegyo-sal is supposed to make you look more youthful and innocent and also allows for bigger and brighter looking eyes. A netizen actually did some photoshop on some Korean actresses that naturally have the eye pouches and you can instantly see the differences on the face when their eye pouches are removed.

Kim Tae Hee looks SO different!

How do you know if you have aegyo-sal?

Just smile! If you smile and see a little pouch under your eyes then you have it. :)

Aegyo-sal vs. Eye Bags: What's the difference?

Aegyo-sal is commonly mistaken as eye bags, but they are not. The aeygo-sal pouches are small and usually only go about half a centimeter down from your lower lash line. Eye bags on the other hand are caused when one loses fat under the eyes and also from lack of sleep. They are usually accompanied by wrinkles (for older folks) and/or discolorations. They are usually saggy, sit lower under your eyes, and just make you look dead tired.

How do you achieve the aegyo-sal?

One way is by cosmetic surgery, but you can also fake it with makeup! To learn how, watch my video below. It's also a great way to enhance your aegyo-sal if you already have them, like me. :D
