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:
- For smaller eyes, use a brightening pencil on the inner and outer corner of the eyes to open it up.
- For almond shaped eyes, defining the lower eye using an eye liner is important to bring out shape.
- For contoured eyes, an interesting tip is to add a shimmery color under the brow bone.
- When applying the eye color, brush from the outer corner inwards, rather than outwards so as not to distort the shape of the eyes.
The instructions are easy to follow and because all the three models have double eyelids, these tips will likely work well for some of the non-Asians as well.
