Sultry Eye Makeup Tutorial for Asian Eyes
This is tutorial consists of four basic color eyeshadows that everyone should have: beige brown, black, white, and dark taupe. The tutorial is pretty basic what makes the difference is really how it is adapted to Asian eyes which means placement is pretty important.
Step 1. My eye and brow has been prepped and primed.
Step 2. Start with the beige brown shadow. Here I use Make Up For Ever 164 from lashline to browbone. If you are wondering why I don’t highlight, I do it for two reasons. Firstly, Asian eyes need to be given the illusion of depth on their lid. Secondly, the emphasis is to shape and highlight the “lid” area instead.
Step 3. Apply the Inglot AMC White Highlighting Powder or any white shadow shimmery or matte of your preference from lashline up to the orbital ridge (you will know when your fleshy bit of the eye begins to hit bone).
Step 4. Next apply a wing eyeliner by using a black cake eyeliner. I use Ultraflesh Black Magic eyeliner set. The placement is important (more of it explained on winged eyeliner posts on Into the Palette).
Step 5. The red line just shows the direction of how the eyeliner should look from the front. The liner goes up and not to the side and out. This gives the illusion of depth.
Step 6. Next with the same cake eyeliner, draw a line to create a “crease”. Let the end meet the tip of the wing eyeliner.
Step 7. Blend the line.
Step 8. How it should look from the front.
Step 9. To add softness and depth to the bottom lashline, smudge a dark taupe, NARS Coconut Grove.
Step 10. Almost done…
Step 11. Finish the look with lashes.
Step 12. There you have it, sultry and sexy with just four eyeshadows. Now, go practice!
