Korean-style vs Western-style makeup

Although Korea is known as one of the biggest markets for makeup, Korean makeup styling is quite different from other places in the world. 

In order to show the vast differences in Korean-style and Western-style makeup, one netizen used Photoshop on a photo of a Western woman. Despite being two sides of the same face, the differences in the styles of the makeup made the woman appear to be two completely different people. The resulting composite photo shocked other netizens, causing a lot of attention to the post online. A translation of the post and all the photos can be found below:
