As many Asian women are exposed to fashion and beauty media aimed primarily at white Caucasian women, it is important to be aware of the subtle differences between the two, although the beauty concepts are similar.
Just think how many leading actresses and photographic fashion models with Asian looks have become prominent in films, TV and magazines in the last decade.
Film makers, magazine editors, fashion houses have at last recognized the allure and naturally exotic beauty that so many Asian women possess. At the same time the cosmetic industry has developed make up specifically designed to suit and enhance Asian skin tones.
An Asian Pacific woman’s eyes are not only her best asset but also her biggest challenge when it comes to applying eye make up.
Beginning Your Makeup
Start by making sure you have the best makeup tools. Checking out the on line sites is the quickest and best way to compare prices and quality, and gives you time to consider your best buys.
Many Asian women think that they should use foundations and powder in shades, mainly pink that counteracts their natural skin tones. More often than not this produces an unnatural look.
The use of yellow shaded facial products creates a naturally attractive clear modern look and does not make the skin more yellow looking, as many women believe.
Eye Make Up Tips
Picking the right eye shadow brush. The ideal width should be 3/5 of the space between your eyebrows and upper lash line when your eyes are open. Choose a brush with good quality bristles.
Eye Shadow Colors
Experiment with colors that you think look good on you. For work and daytime think about more natural shades.
To look good, when you are going out for the evening, try brighter shades to give greater emphasis to your naturally beautiful almond eye shape. Coral, orange or light gray can complement your skin shade and looks up to date and fashionable.
Although widely used, be careful with some browns, which can give a dated look. It’s fun to experiment with eye shadows and liners and you can get some great effects.
Use a tapered contoured crease brush to create depth and size for the eyes.
Eye lining pencils are the most important eye makeup tool for controlling the look of your eyes. By drawing the line past the outer corner of the eye and blending it upwards you can emphasize the naturally longer and exotic look of your beautiful Asian eyes.
To downplay the exotic look at work or during the day, gradually thicken the eye line as you work towards the outer corner and stop just past the end.
Learn how to apply mascara and enhance your lashes.
Try using a lighter shade of eyeliner under the lower lashes and a heavier shade above the upper lashes if you want your eyes to appear deeper and more open.
Always use a light touch when applying eye make up, if you want to add depth then do so in easy stages, otherwise you may have to clean up and start all over again or feel uncomfortable with the make up looking caked on and unnatural.
