Most Asians have problems with their eyeshadow because their eyelids coverthe colours when they open their eyes. There's a solution to that: you just have to apply the eyeshadow in a way that will keep the eyeshadow colours visible. This creates an illusion of bigger-looking eyes, extended eyelids, and a whole lot of glam!

Here are top 3 eyeshadow looks you can try that are best for Asian eyes. 


Smokey Eye Makeup for Hooded or Asian Eyes

by Tina Young

Most Asian eyes struggle with hooded eyes and the solution makeup offers is none other than the classic smokey eye look. This look works well if you apply your transition colour above your crease line. This creates a shadow to achieve more depth to the sockets of your eyes. 

Faux Eyelid Makeup

For this look to work you need a dark shade as your guide, "pencil" it on top of your lid (higher than usual), and line it according to your eye shape. This creates the illusion that you have bigger eyelids. Then you can move on to applying the other colours, making sure that you keep it inside the eyelid space that you've drawn.

Sultry Cut Crease Eye Makeup Tutorial

The Cut Crease eye makeup look is a technique where the crease is "cut" sharply with a contrasting eye shadow colour to give it that dramatically defined crease. This is a look that suits Asian eyes as it perfectly matches the eye shape, highlighting it even more with a dramatic look.

Creating a flawless base relies on a foundation that perfectly matches your skin tone and skin type. It's all about knowing what would work on your skin type (if you're oily--stay away from oil-based foundations) and knowing the undertones that suits your skin colour (are you cool-toned, neutral, or warm-toned).

So if you're still struggling to pick the perfect foundation for your face, ClozetteTV breaks it all down for you in this beauty video with tips and tricks on how to pick a foundation for a naturally flawless finish.

We love a good #MOTD. And most days we just wish it's okay to walk up to someone and ask "What's on your face?" It's not strange at all--right? We just want to know the foundation used for skin that looks so dewy and fresh, or what eyeshadow palette was used to create that gorgeous the smokey eye. Really reasonable explanation. 

But since we have such a wonderful community of beauty-savvy girls who are more than happy to share their #MOTD looks with us, we thought it'll be much easier to just take a peek into their feed and see the products they used to create a variety of looks.
