The Daytime Smoky Eyes

Daytime smoky eyes might sound like an oxymoron but you can wear smoky eyes without looking like you hollowed out your eyes.  In this post I use the simple pattern used in my Definitive Eyeshadow Guide which works on all eye shapes.

Creating the Natural Look with the Fab Four Eyeshadows on Asian Eyes

*Just a tutorial.*

Natural looking defined eyes sounds like an oxymoron but when you have the Fab Four eyeshadows, this is possible.  Yes, this is another post using these basic matte colors of ivory, peach, taupe, and dark brown.  I do these posts because they statistically receive the most hits compared to the glammed up eye tutorials.  This tells me using neutrals or creating a natural look is difficult especially on Asian eyes which it shouldn't be, just takes some practice and know-how.

How to Apply Winged Eyeliner on Asian Monolids

*Nothing to disclose.*

Sometimes the most beautiful way to enhance Asian eyes is to just keep them simple.  After all, when everyone is wearing a full face of makeup emphasizing each area of their face with so much color; the boldest statement made can be the most minimalistic.

Asian Monolid Tutorial - How to Make Them Look Bigger

This tutorial is about Asian Monolids.  For those of you not familiar with the term "monolid", it basically means the crease creates a smaller lid area.  This makes the eye look like it has no lid but it does just not as much space compared to the occidental eyes.  Anatomy is the same as I mentioned here in this post here.

Green Eye Envy Eyeshadow Tutorial

In honor of St. Patrick's Day and somewhat close to the emerald color of the year, I decided to do a simple eyeshadow look.  This eyeshadow look can work on most eye shapes.  When I mean most, I would say if your eyes are hooded and droop at the outer end of the eyes, I would not do the outer eye end shading.  Other than that, the rest of the tutorial works for everyone.  I have used Grace from London Makeup Girl to show how the application compares to non-hooded Asian eyes.  Let's get on with the post.  Oh, by the way, I have to state first that I am using Lonjure Lashes in Timeless which I have received as a PR sample.

The Fast Neutral Eye Look Inspired by the TV Show the Arrow

to see the show go to CW.com
I am a major fan of the Arrow, not only do I enjoy watching Oliver Queen and John Diggle run on pure testosterone.  I enjoy looking at the makeup.  Yes, as a makeup addict, as you know, I am influenced by the beauty on tv and film.  The last tutorial, Skyfall, was a bit difficult but this one isn't.  In fact, it is fast and easy since it is an eye look made for a tv show which hardly gets much time to spare when it comes to makeup application.  So, if you want a look that has depth and definition and is wearable anywhere.  Go for this look.

Shading the Eyes or Separating the Eyes from the Rest of the Face

It has been a long time coming for this tutorial but to tell you the truth it is hard to do a tutorial using oneself in real time.  In other words it is so much easier to just photoshop the steps, but I decided to show you on my mature eyes how shading the eyes work.

I have eliminated the steps on what products have been used.  I will just mention what colors I have used.  I will also leave out the details of how I did my winged liner and such because I covered that many times in many posts.

The Natural No-Makeup Look for Asian eyes or Otherwise Known as Reverse Contouring the Eye

I know the Asian eye shape is different from others and sometimes thinking inside the makeup box just doesn't work.  Take for example the natural looking eye.  Here, I am not talking about a fashion nude eye look or just that one wash of beige over the eye area.  I am talking about that natural no-make up look that you see on those historical based dramas like The Tudors.  (I know I keep bringing this show up but it was excitingly good television!)  You know they are wearing a thick layer of makeup or you would see the actors dark circles, freckles, discoloration, or just plain tired skin.  And, the eyes have to have some eyeshadow on for just that touch of natural looking depth.
