When it comes to selecting makeup, Asian women face many unique challenges that are seldom addressed in mainstream media. However, with a few simple tips, it is easy to find complementary Asian makeup online. Here is a guide to selecting and applying Asian makeup.
When selecting a foundation, it is advisable to find one with yellow undertones. This way, it will be better able to match the skin coloring. Finding a foundation of this kind can prove a difficult task as most foundations either have red or orange undertones. However, it is essential to search for the ideal foundation as foundation serves as a base for the overall look that you are trying to create.
Black eyeliner will draw attention to the eyes and hence can be applied to both the upper and lower eyes. Shimmery jeweled colored eyeshadow should be applied, with bright greens, blues and dark purples being particularly suited to dark eyes. However, when it comes to color accents, Asian eyes prove highly versatile. Dark eyes can be brought to life with light pink, gold or rust colored eyeshadow. Eyelashes should be coated with jet black mascara (or get eyelash extensions applied) and eyelashes should be curled upwards and not straight outward.
To truly show off Asian skin tones, select a gold-tinted bronzer to sweep over the cheek bones to highlight, sculpt and provide the face with shimmer. Alternatively, a yellow-based blush can be applied to the cheeks for a softer look more suited to daytime. For the lips, a neutral color is recommended. A touch of blue-based red or pink lip color will highlight the lips and prevent the skin from looking sallow in appearance.
These Asian makeup tips will enable Asian women to look at their very best regardless of the time of day. It is essential for all women to embrace their natural beauty and to make the most of what they have got. It is unwise to try to look like the latest cover girl on your favourite fashion magazine.
