Makeup tips for expressive Asian eyes

This makeup video from Makeup Gourmet has some rather good makeup tips to open up and bring out a more expressive pair of Asian eyes.   These are some of the important ones I remember after watching it:

  1. For smaller eyes, use a brightening pencil on the inner and outer corner of the eyes to open it up. 
  2. For almond shaped eyes, defining the lower eye using an eye liner is important to bring out shape.

Apart from experimenting with makeup or updating your apparel, you can consider making a fashion statement with colored contact lenses.  Like popular Taiwanese celebrity Rainie Yang Cheng Lin (楊丞琳), who is seen here endorsing the kaleidoscope of colors and variety of len styles under FreshLook Cosmetic Contact Lenses by Ciba Vision. 

So instead of your usual eye color, you may wish to transform your looks by wearing any of the nineteen stunning shades like gray, brown, honey, pure hazel, blue, green, true sapphire, turquoise, amethyst for fun or to suit any special occasion.

Tutorial: Brighter larger looking eyes

Want to have bambi eyes?  Well, you can by using some of the eye makeup techniques shared by Michelle Phan in the video above.  Her techniques are rather interesting and involve using white eyeliner and silver eyeshadow before lining the eyes thinly so as to achieve a pair of brighter larger looking eyes. 

  • Apply white eyeliner on the lower rim of the eyes
  • Apply a light eyeshadow of the lids
  • Apply silver eyeshadow on the upper brow line
