Japan Tokyo

Puffy eyes

On a train in Tokyo, Reza was telling me how having puffy eyes was the recent trend in Japan. He said that Japanese girls go for eye surgeries just for that. I didn’t believe him, I thought he was mistaken.

“You mean double eyelids?”

But he was pointing to area the beneath the eyes as he was explaining.

All my life I’d wished that there would be a cream that could make my puffy eyes vanish overnight. Who in their right minds, would consider it desirable to have eyebags?

Then I saw this at a chain store at Roppongi:

Puffy eye tapes

So he wasn’t delusional. Spotted at the beauty section, eye tapes designed to make eyes appear puffy!

Apparently this trend has been around for quite a while (e.g. magazines giving makeup tutorials for puffy eyes), only I hadn’t noticed it. The process of applying the tape looks quite ridiculous, but maybe this is what they’re after – a defined eye with a little bit character.

Well, what does this mean? Time to embrace our naturally puffy eyes!
