Interesting article Missy 4x.

I'll try to post some photos of eye make-up from some of the latest make-up give aways here in Seoul.

Just gotta get the camera working better

My best advice is not to use eyeliner on both the top and bottom. It does indeed make your eyes small. Just line the bottom or the top, not both.

I'm asian and though my eyes have folds (creases?), I still find it hard to put make-up on.

wow, i haven't checked this thread in weeks because there weren't any responses in the first few days.

the way i've done my eyes for a long time is i've applied liquid liner around the upper lash line, and half-way around the bottom lash line (going from outer corners to roughly middle). then i use a fat, dark grey pencil to further line the upper lid at the lash line, stopping about a half-cm from the outer corner. i use a powder in the same colour to "lock" it in place. and then mascara, etc.

that's about all i can do, because since i have no crease, i can only line my eyes with very dark black/grey shades as any colour on the rest of the lid makes me look like i have been punched in the face. was wondering whether any other asian girls w/o creases have the same problem, and what colours work for them?

oh and i find that using a very light, shimmery pencil at the inner bottom corners of the eye makes the eye pop more.

and thanks missy44 for the helpful info and purple for the websites!

[make eyes look wow
I read for dark and small eyes.
Avoid dark colors stick to light colors. Go with a liner that is dark color but a thin line, even smudge it but avoid thick line, this can actually close up the eye. Apply to the top lid near eyelash line starting with the inner lid and go all the way to the outer lid.
use a shimmery shadow not glittery. Curl your lashes only the top and hold the lash curler for at least 20 sec. Pay close attention to the outer lashes.
Groom your brows. Even without make up a well groomed will make your eyes appear larger, do not go to thin. don't just fill in the sparse spots, pay attention to the tail over your brows. If you use a pencil to fill in make sure to blend so it looks natural.

As for color shadows. If you have brown. Use a light to medium green or gold not yellow. This will pick up the flecks in your eyes and again not heavy. apply from lash line to brow bone blend well. Use a shimmery not glittery.
Also if you use powder makeup use powder shadow and cream makeup with cream makeup. this is helpful when needing to correct mistakes.
Hazel eyes work well with dark green and pale yellows
Blue eyes - brown and rose
Green eyes - lavender (night) and mocha (day)

In every case always apply base to your eyelids it helps with an even application and also hides any vains or stubble (the ones you just can't get at just yet) on the lid.

Hope this helps.

sometimes all just concentrate on the areas around my upper cheeks/ outer part of eyelid and create a "blushing" eye effect with approx the same color your cheeks are when you blush. or i concentrate on the eyebrows...it basically all ends up looking like this. except the eyebrows would be a little subtler. since asian eyebrows are so fine this look really makes a statement..but most people wouldn't put their finger on it.
i usually wear a natural version of this with a bare face everyday!

Invest in some Asian magazines like Sugar or JJ. They always have step-by-step instructions complete with photos (very important especially if you cannot read Chinese/Japanese like me lol). I don't know if any of you watched What Not to Wear last week but they had this Asian girl and the makeup artist gave her this gorgeous smoky eyed look.
