Mono Eyelids. A friend's makeover.

 I finally did makeup on Asian eyes. I'm pretty excited because I've been wanting to do makeup on a person with mono lids or Asian eyes. I just they are beautiful!

This is my friend Grace. She's Korean American. She's never had her makeup done before so I was pretty excited. At first, she was a bit worried because she didn't want to look funny and she thought there's no way eye shadows would work with her small eyes. But nonetheless, she was nice enough to let me do my thing. Also, she didn't care what makeup I do.

I did her eye makeup slowly because I was trying to study her eyes. She didn't have a lot of lid space to work with and I was careful not to cover her entire lids that will cause her eyes to look smaller than what they are. I mainly focused on the outer V or outer corner of her eyes using a mix of black, burgundy and brown eye shadows. I also created a slight fake crease to give her eyes some definition. This part took a lot of blending. Then, I did a very thick line on her upper lash line with a black gel liner. It came out really nice and she loved it.


Before. She has amazing skin and no dark circles or pimples. Lucky!!!


After
 I applied false lashes on her and she loved it.






She liked her makeup a lot and she said I can practice on her eyes anytime ^_^. I'll be more prepared next time and bring my brow stuff so I can mess with her eye brows next hehe...

  13. Just so you know, "Chinky" is a derogatory term used to describe Asian eyes. It's a derivative of 'Chink', a term used to describe the Asian race in general. Calling someone a 'Chink' is like calling an African American a 'Nigger'. Just thought you should know as it can be a offensive to some.
