Well, technically speaking, the crouching silkworm is a type of “eyebag” that’s no more than 0.3-0.4 cm directly under the eyes and are active muscles at work. As opposed to eyebags that stretch out more than 0.4 cm and aren’t muscles but sagging excess fat. Also, dark circles are not part of the crouching silkworm trend. So we still need our dark circle correctors, but we can skip out on ‘puffy eyes’ eye creams. (Info c/o Chasing Elixir)
My reaction? WHY OH WHY. I certainly didn’t understand the allure of it at first. I even thought these so-called ‘eyebag tapes’ were to eliminate eyebags, not forge them. But then I came to realize after seeing a few before and after photos that they tend to OPEN UP the eyes even more.
And I thought that the combination of double eyelid tape, doll contact lenses, long fluttering falsies and a ton of mascara was already the combination for precipitating the ultimate transformation of the chinkiest-eyed Asians. Leave it to the Koreans (or Japanese!) to discover the most pivotal (albeit sometimes crazy or weird) trends in the ever-evolving beauty industry.
I did have an epiphany on this trend though. I remember the first time I was professionally made up for an event in which my foundation was so flawless that it concealed every bit of my puffy eyes and dark circles.
I HATED HOW I LOOKED. My eyes were chinkier and smaller which I didn’t like because it didn’t suit me at all. I was confused because at that point, I thought to myself, “Do I actually prefer myself without concealer or foundation to hide my hideous eyebags? Of course not.” And so all those years, I was constantly baffled why I hated my fully made-up eyes when it’s supposed to be beautiful because it’s ‘flawless‘.
Thanks to this trend, I’ve been slapped in the face with the answer! No wonder I couldn’t accept what my mind has been telling me all along — it’s because it’s so… ironic and ridiculous-sounding. I actually look better with a bit of eyebags.

Of course this trend doesn’t apply to everyone as some or most don’t look younger or more appealing with crouching silkworms. But there is beauty to a little puff under the eyes for those who are very chinky-eyed as it opens up the eyes for a more youthful, charming and alluring look.
