Recently, netizens have been sharing photos of idols who are wearing decorative stickers on their faces! While it has been done for a while, the charming style has become more of a choice for Korean youth on the streets. Popular artists such as EXID, Elris and even IU have been seen with these cute stickers surrounding their faces - particularly the eye area. 

From cute hearts, sparkling stars and humorous teardrops, the stickers add a sense of life and color to every style and many makeup gurus are moving on from the glittery eyeshadows and eyeliners in order to explore this adventurous trend. Fans are praising the new concept for being fun and an easier application compared to other makeup styles.

However, fans have been wondering where the trend developed from so suddenly? While the variations and styles can range from many origins, it is popularly referred to as 'Kira Kira Makeup' in Japan. In Korean, it would be called 'Banjjak Banjjak Makeup' (Twinkle Twinkle Makeup) which refers to the glittery and twinkling sensation of the makeup around the eyes. How will you get your shine on?
