Just having the right, Asian makeup, and knowing how to apply it, may not be sufficient. You need to learn a few, “tips and tricks”, in order to really look your best. So, without further ado, here are the top 10 Asian makeup tips you should be aware of.
- Because most Asian women have oily skin, an important Asian makeup tip would be to remember to apply astringent lotion before your makeup. Allow the lotion to dry for five minutes in order to enjoy a better, and longer-lasting, makeup experience.
- Whether you’re Indian or Chinese, stick to yellow-based foundations because they suit Asian complexion the most. If you’re worried about your rosy cheeks turning dull, remember that you can always add a little blush.
- If you want to avoid using heavy foundation, you can switch to airbrush foundation. Airbrush foundation is a water-based product that sprays onto the skin within minutes. It let’s your skin breath and won’t fill up your pores. However, if you are still waiting until your airbrush kit arrives, you can combine a good primer with a light dusting of powder.
- One essential, Asian makeup tips, is to give more time to contouring. This basic makeup step can help you eliminate numerous flaws, everything from appearing flat-faced to large foreheads. In addition, it adds balance and definition to your face.
- Full, shapely eyebrows are a must for perfect makeup. Since many women from Asia have sparse eyebrows, you may have to hide any gaps with makeup. So, to fill them up, use an eye shadow that matches your brows’ color or is a shade lighter.
- Medium eye shadows are excellent for women with prominent brow bones and large spaces over their creases. On the other hand, if you need to create both of these effects, then use highlighting colors instead.
- Though most Asian makeup tips guides recommend that you enjoy your natural features, many Asian women are adamant on creating eyelid creases. If you want to create your own, then keep it simple. First, line your eyes with a deep color and focus on making the top line stronger than the lower line. Next, apply a medium-tone shadow from your lash line to three-quarters of your lid. Finally, use a lighter eye shadow under your brow bone to open your eyes.
- Black eyeliner may be bold, and in fashion, but it may not suit you if you have small eyes. Instead, what guides on Asian makeup tips recommend, is for you to use dark browns and charcoals, since both colors will help your eyes pop.
- 90% of Asian women have straight, pointed lashes. You can add volume and length to these with the right mascara, or curl them first to get a different look.
If your skin is pale, you can try light shades of blush such as peach and coral. On the other hand, if your skin is dark, you can either, head out without blush, or, choose darker shades of pink and red.
- For your lips, choose a prominent color if you want them to be the focal point of your face. If you want more emphasis on other facial features, such as your eyes, consider using a neutral shade on your lips.
With these tips, you can never go wrong while using Asian cosmetics.
