How to Apply Makeup to Asian Eyes (Without a Fold/Crease)


Eye makeup tutorial for girls who have single lidded eyes.

Method 1

  1. 1
    Eyeliner's an essential part to doing makeup, because it really widens your eyes.
  2. 2
    Use your finger and stretch the corner of your eye to the side, so your eyelid is widened.
  3. 3
    Tracing the upper lash line, draw a line with your eyeliner.
    • Black eyeliner is recommended. You can smudge it however much you want you can see a faint line, and it makes your eyes look bigger.
  4. 4
    On the lower part of your eye, start from about 3/4 of the way FROM the outer corner of your eye, and trace the eyeliner along your lash line. Using whatever color, though darker colors - dark green, brown, navy blue, black - are recommended.
  5. 5
    Connect the eyeliner with the eyeliner from the upper eyelid.

Method 2

  1. 1
    Sweep the brush along the edge of your upper lash line, and
  2. 2
    Do the same with the outer edge of your lower lash line.
  3. 3
    Be sure to use a darker eyeshadow if it's just a casual occasion.

Method 3

  1. 1
    If you have long, thin eyelashes, use a volumizing mascara.
  2. 2
    If you have short eyelashes, use a lengthening mascara.
  3. 3
    An eyelash curler is optional, but hold tightly for 5 seconds if you do, as close to the roots as possible.
