STEP ONE: ANALYSE YOUR EYES’ SHAPE

Asians are blessed with the most uniquely shaped eyes, and are therefore one of the most difficult to apply makeup for. Many even have uneven lids, double eyelids that are hooded, or monolids.

Depending on what eye shape you have, a different makeup application is needed to correct your eyes into the most universally beautiful shape of an almond. So grab a mirror and have a closer look on which eye shape you have according to the chart below. Once you have identified it, I will be sharing more on which technique to apply. It is also not uncommon to have a crossover between 2 types of eye shapes.

Here’s a video of how to determine your eyes’ shape from Smashbox & Sephora.
