I would suggest going for a shade that is more plummy rather than maroon if you are worried about asian eyes, try MAC nocturnelle or beauty marked.

2nd Beauty Marked! Very multidimensional, very similar. Rim your eyes with eyeliner, lots of mascara, and keep colour darker on the outer corner to create a less-Asian/more-Ashley shape.

She appears (to me) to be wearing a bronze cream eyeshadow plus some black kohl and lots of mascara.

i agree with Ida, pretty model! and great video

i tend to wing my eyes out more straight though, free hand. those thin eyeliner brushes are the best! i only use the angled e/l brush to tight line

Hi! I'm new to this part of the forum, but I've been lurking for a while. This thread is super helpful!

I really really love this look and it seems simple enough, but I'm having a hard time matching the lipstick color. Does anyone have any recommendations (or what I should look for in a lipstick)? Most red lipsticks out there seem too fire engine red, which don't go well with my warm complexion. This lipstick seems more...brown?

Also, what color blush would I use?

Thanks so much!!

edit: sorry for the picture size! i keep trying to edit it, but it doesn't stay small.....

With regards to the lipstick, look (or ask) for something "brick red." That's the sort that has a brown tone to it. I would give suggestions but I have a cool complexion so those don't work on me
Definitely use a cream blush. With regards to the color, something along the lines of MAC "Lilicent" would be perfect, but the formula and color has been discontinued but you can still find it in most stores

Hope this is vaguely helpful, sorry I couldn't be more specific

I really love this make-up. I know it must be quite simple to get but I'd like to hear your suggestions on lipsticks and eyeshadows, thanks.

^Any rich brown eyeshadow will do, like MAC's swiss chocolate and Hug Me lipstick. On the cheeks only a contour like Harmony on the hollows of the cheek and lots of mascara on top and bottom lashes Also you might want to use an eyebrow pencil to fill in and make your eyebrows stronger!

^There might be a baby pink blush on the cheeks as well such as MAC Well Dressed

I'm a m/u artist and if I was gonna do that eye on someone:
- Nude or flesh tone shade all over the lid(or just base or foundation)
-Use a soft crease brush to add in some dark brown gradually in the crease and over V
-Use a liner brush and smudge dark brown along the upper and lower lashline
-mascara on top and bottom lashes
-line the upper waterline in black
-then a bone shade on the inner corners and along the browbone
-contour the cheeks, temple, and under the jawline
-use a matte petal pink blush
-then either mute out the lips with base/foundation or a pale non-shimmery pale pink

Been in love with this Emma Stone look since I first saw it. I have green-blue eyes too and I love wearing purples and berry shades on my eyes.





I saw on her thread that everyone was loving this look too so I tried it out. I used MAC Cranberry mixed with MUD Vineyard on the inner corner, MAC Parfait Amour and MUD Voodoo on the over corner. Then I used black liner on the water line and black mascara.

My sister's going to prom and I think this would look really beautiful on her. Does anybody have suggestions for good products? Thanks in advance

Edit: And also something to help smooth her skin?

Medium brown matte eyeshadow (MAC Cork), light pink cream blush, a good foundation and a good concealer (depends on your sister's skin)
