Aegyo sal, (also known as youthlites or love bands) is now a very popular “eye bag” trend straight from Korea. It definitely should not be confused with sagging or dark purple eye bags which are caused by lack of sleep and/or aging. This trend is totally different thing:
Basically eye bags make you look really tired and they are considered unattractive pretty much all over the world. Aegyo sal however is located just half centimeter (0.2 inches) under the eyelash line. Eye bags are located way more lower and that’s what makes the difference between aegyo sal and eye bags. It’s easy to spot the difference between these two. Check out the image below to get it straight.
Aegyo sal refers very strictly to the puffiness of the lower eye socket and it definitely has to match with the color tone of the skin, not being purplish like eye bags are. Unlike eye bags, aegyo sal gives youthful look and makes the eyes look bigger and more “smiling”. Be sure to check out before and after photos to get an idea what kind of difference there is with and without aegyo sal.
So, the real questions is how to get aegyo sal naturally without an expensive surgery? Basically there is 2 non-surgical ways available to archive the look you are looking for. Well actually there is more but if we leave the option of going to a clinic and getting some fillers out of count, then there is just 2 options:

This tape is really similar to double eyelid tape, which is used to give an impression of having a double eyelid.

This tape can be bought from many stores selling Korean goods. Numerous online shops are selling it too. Just make sure to buy a good ones to avoid nasty eye infections.
