I thought I'd do an Ulzzang make up tutorial. There's not a lot of make up involved, I'm focusing more on Shaping/Contouring your face to look 'slim'.
But before we get started -
짱 (jjang): Korean slang that means "best." Ulzzang means "best face" in Korean and the word is used both online and in real life. Basically, an ulzzang is someone who has a very attractive face, but most people use the term to describe people who have become popular for their looks.
The ulzzang craze started in South Korea. Many ulzzang wannabes post up their pictures on various websites, and voting and chatting can be done on many of them. Contests, both online and in real life, are often used to pick the best ulzzangs, but you do not necessarily need to enter or win. Some ulzzangs, however, have not relied solely on the internet. For example, some have gained popularity at school for being attractive. Most ulzzangs, however, use the internet to share their photos, and that is how many become popular.
Many ulzzangs use Haduri, which is a web camera program popular among teens in Korea. People also take normal or digicam pictures. Some even use Photoshop to edit themselves. Fakers don't make it far, and they usually get busted.
The most famous ulzzangs may earn celebrity status. Some may appear on shows, magazines, etc. Some ulzzangs may even become real celebrities by going into acting, singing, or modeling careers. A few examples of former ulzzangs are Goo Hye Sun, Park Han Byul, and Kim Hye Sung.
"Ulzzang" with "zz" is the most common way it's written out in English on ulzzang websites. Variations on romanization include eoljjang, uhljjang, uljjang, and so on.

1. Put on your black or brown circle lenses, I'm using Angel Brown CM-834. Apply whitening cream/BB Cream or any light foundation all over your face and neck. I used Coenzyme Q10 BB Cream I bought this from Malaysia a while ago, I'm not sure if they still sell it, but any BB Cream is fine to use (they act like Foundation/Tinted Moisturizers).
2. Apply concealer under your eye bags (just to hide your dark circles, not your eye bags), around your lips and any areas your foundation has missed - in this case my BB Cream couldn't cover up my recent pimple scar. I'm using Coastal Scents' Medium Camo Quad.
When applying concealer around your lips, we're shaping your lips. The shadows around your lips can sometimes make your lips appear large. Ulzzangs tend to have small cute cherry lips, since not all of us are born with those lips, we'll use make up to create that look.
Highlight using number 2 on the marked areas.
Using number 5, create shadows inside the marked areas.
V shape. Lots of photoshop whitening to make your face pale and there you have it!
