♪ Makeup tips for Asian double lid with no eye crease

Today's tutorial is particularly for Asian girls like me who has double lid that is not so obvious: this means you have double lid but no eye crease! So when the eyes are open the fold sometimes gets lost... This look is basically to make the double lid more obvious, so to speak :3

There are many tutorials about creating deeper set eyes for Asian girls with smokey eye makeup; however it sometimes seem too much and not natural for day time.


Products used

Face:
- Covermark concealer stick in Y-1
- Mary Kay mineral foundation in Ivory 1
- Avon mineral blush in Radiance
Eyes:
- Sweets Sweets eye palette by Cezanne in PE6
- Lise Watier waterproof eye pencil in Tres Noir
- Kate wax mascara
- Neo Angle tritone circle lens Brown

E.L.F eyebrow kit in Light

Foggia hair wax




The usual rule for eyeshadow is to apply the darker shade at the outter corner and blend in; but in order to put emphasis on the fold, I'm applying the darker shade ALONG the fold line. It's better to use an earthy tone palette because the eye shadow is to help creating illusion of deeper eye instead of for showing off nice colours...

Steps for eyes:

  • Apply B as overall shade.
  • Apply C along the fold line.
  • Line upper eye line and extend it to match the line created by C.
  • Curl lashes and apply mascara
  • Lightly line bottom eye line.

*Somehow the first close up picture looks almost like my eye is bruised lol, but the "line of shadow"won't show up that obvious once you curl the lashes and apply mascara.



Your "line of shadow" should look something like this:

The finished eye look.

Whole face effect. My double lid seems much more defined and obvious; this gives a deeper set effect even though I don't have eye crease.


P.S. Comparison of before hair wax and after! It takes 10 seconds to do and really makes a difference; so I never skip this step even when I'm in a rush!

Before: super flat!!

After: more volumed and airy~ it also makes my face look much smaller :D

Notice even though I'm looking up, you can still see my fold. Usually they get lost! :D

I hope you enjoyed the look :D And thank you everyone who followed us!

  9. Hello ^^!

    Just found your blog via the Soompi beauty blog thread. These are great tips and I often use black eyeshadow to do the same thing although I never really thought much about it... it was just something that I experimented with and though looked nice. Now I'm going to try it with a similar shade of brown as you used and see how it'll turn out. Great blog, really love it. I've subscribed <3
