14 Perfect makeup looks to suit Asian skin tones
Wednesday, April 12, 2017
Deep red lips + well-placed highlights
Fair Asian skin will always look impeccable with a dark red lippy and a bit of a shimmer along the cheekbones and forehead. Go for simple eye makeup to play down the bold lip look.
Give your cheeks and eyes a hint of peachy pink blush and shadow for a fresh and feminine look.
Bold and earthy shadow
Dark jewelled tones for your eyeshadow will work a treat on warm skin tones.
Sweeping winged eyeliner
A bold look, to be sure, but the winged eyeliner look is a captivating one if you have almond-shaped eyes.
Sweeping winged eyeliner (cont.)
Colouring in the entire eyelid to create your sweeping winged liner look will generate an hypnotic look that will turn heads.
For eyes that truly pop, draw in your brows with a light shade to frame your face, then line your eyes with dark eyeliner. If you want an illusion of a wider double eyelid, pencil in your desired effect. Finish off the look with a chic red lippy.
Hints of coral
If bright pinks or deep reds aren’t your thing, slight variants of orange and coral can create a subtler look on Asian skin.
Natural and glowing
Keep your brows natural and go bare with your eyes. A flawless foundation and a sweep of highlighter here and there is all you need for a simple and minimalistic daytime look.
Bold up the brows
For some definition, play up your dark brows with even more colour.
Smoky eyes with a hint of shimmer
Slight metallic or shimmering eyeliner in dark and smokey hues will sit nicely on warm skin tones.
Warm and earthy tones like brown or rust can definitely flatter your complexion.
Have fun with glitter
Try out some glitter over your eyelids if you’re thinking of a fun night out. Keep the makeup on the rest of your face relatively simple to let the shimmer work its magic.
Skip the lip liner and opt for a natural, glossy look in a subtle pink shade for a sweet date night look.
A bit of bronzing
For a complexion that needs a hint of colour, brush on some bronzer on areas such as the side of the face and the forehead.
Take a gander at these inspiring makeup looks straight from gorgeous Asian models.
With warmer skin tones, we Asian women have probably noticed that certain colours don’t always look that great when matched with our complexion. Colours like yellow and blue we definitely have to treat with some amount of caution and bravery, while earthy tones like dark greens and chocolate browns look absolutely gorgeous, especially with our dark eyes.
Even if you’ve got your makeup looks all figured out to suit your complexion, we’re sure you’re keen to try some different styles out – from bolder lips to sweet and feminine peach-tinted eyelids. Head up to the gallery to check out a slew of 14 perfect makeup looks that suit Asian skin tones, all guaranteed to inspire you.

The Best Foundations for Black & Asian Skin — brownbeautytalk
When it comes to foundation, there definitely isn’t a one colour fits all product, as you have probably discovered during your attempts to find your perfect match. Just looking at the darker end of the skin tone spectrum, there are thousands of slight colour variances. We feature the best foundations for Black & Asian skin tones.
Some of us have warmer skin, others have red undertones, while some girls have ashier complexions. Since bespoke foundations are (yet) to be commonplace, these beauty brands offer the best selection of foundation shades, to help you find the shade that disappears on your skin:
Bobbi Brown created her makeup line when she struggled to find natural-looking foundation shades for all complexions when she was working as a makeup artist. Her makeup line delivers on its promise of offering a wide variety of colours for all skin tones. The brand has seven foundation ranges; from a powder, to a serum, a tinted moisturiser and one containing an SPF. Their hero product is the Skin Long-Wear Foundation which comes in a liquid formula. It is medium to full coverage with a natural and matte finish. It’s also available in 42 shades.
When a brand touts itself as the first cosmetics collection designed for all women of colour, you have high expectations. Luckily, Iman Cosmetics doesn’t disappoint. She has the Second to None foundation range which comes in cream to powder, powder and a stick. Each product has an average of 13 shades, but they are all created for darker skin tones. There is also a liquid foundation that comes in seven shades.
MAC’s catalogue of foundations is legendary – not just because of their wide variety of shades but the different textures and finishes available. Creams, powders, liquids and sticks – MAC has it all. Their most iconic foundation is Studio Fix Fluid which is a buildable foundation which has a matte finish. The brand did go through a rut around ten years ago especially with the NW45 situation (if you know you know) but thankfully those days are over and MAC are back on point.
This brand is very under-rated but considering it is dedicated to Black and Asian women, it is not to be overlooked. The have five foundations that come in liquid and powder which have between 10 to 21 different shades, but you need to bear in mind that these shades are all suitable for Black and Asian skin tones. The new Matnifique 24H Matte Foundation comes in 22 shades , it is a light texture with a velvety matte finish.
This brand is much revered by MUAs and beauty enthusiasts and with Naomi Campbell as global ambassador you can only expect good things. They have a handful of foundations but what they have are amazing. Their hero product is the Sheer Glow Foundation which comes in 40 shades; it is sheer and buildable with a natural looking finish that evens your skin tone.
Who can remember life before Fenty? We can’t. One of the reasons why they caused a stir when they launched a few years ago was because of the way they catered for a wide variety of skin tones. Whether you had alabaster skin or deep ebony, chances are you would find your match at Fenty. The Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation was extended from 40 to 60 shades last year. A few months later a matte version of the foundation was launched for dry skin.
This is a vegan friendly, paraben and gluten free brand that creates skin-perfecting mineral based makeup and skincare. Their 4-in-1 Love Your Selfie Longwear Foundation & Concealer comes in a whooping 100 shades – with at least 25 for Black and Asian skin tones.
Their foundation game has always been strong but they really upped their game when they recruited Lupita Nyong’o and then Zendaya to be ambassadors. The Teint range is impressive especially the Idol Ultra Wear Foundation which is their hero product. It is long lasting and provides full coverage without leaving you cakey, plus it comes in 45 shades.
Pat McGrath LABS
Opulence is the word we would use to describe this brand which is created by the iconic makeup artist of the same name. The Skin Fetish Sublime Foundation delivers flawless medium coverage and a silky and luxurious texture. It also comes in 36 different shades as well as five shade categories from light to deep, which have been custom-curated for all skin types, tones and undertones.
Prior to Fenty Beauty, Estee Lauder were also creating foundation shades for darker skin tones. What also set them apart is they were also addressing undertones by creating foundations with yellow, red and neutral undertones. They have several foundations on the market and a few come under the Double Wear range, but it is Stay in Place which is their hero product. It comes in 60 shades and offers a fresh matte, oil-free look.
Now that you know which beauty brands offer the best variety of foundation shades, finding your perfect matching foundation will be that much easier.
A Guide to Makeup for Tan Skin Tones
The warm undertone in tan skin gives off a gorgeous vibrancy. Whether you have naturally tan skin tones or acquired them from time in the sun in a tropical paradise, tan skin is all about peachy, golden, bronzish or orangey undertones. When choosing makeup for tan skin, keep an eye out for these warm shades. Learn our top tips and tricks for makeup for women of color, including specific makeup colors for tan skin with our beauty tips below.
Foundation for Tan Skin
Creating flattering makeup looks for tan skin starts with the right foundation. Foundation application is usually the first step in a makeup routine and is the key to vacation makeup tips and everyday routines. By blending foundation smoothly over your face, you create an even canvas for the rest of your makeup.
If you are blessed with an even complexion already, you can go light with foundation coverage. Mented’s foundation sticks are buildable so you can apply for whatever level of coverage you need. If you want lighter coverage, you can apply less and the lightweight and hydrating nature of the foundation will help you feel fresh all day long. On the other hand, ladies who prefer more coverage can go heavier-handed and still feel covered for their needs.
Choosing a foundation that complements your skin tone and undertones is a must. This is especially true when it comes to how to wear foundation in the summer. Go too dark and you’ll look overdone. Go too light and you might look ashy. Just as bad are foundation shades that look off-color on your skin, thereby appearing orangish or cakey.
Mented foundation sticks come in specific tones within four color categories: light, tan, medium and deep. Made by and for women of color, we’ve created foundation shades that are perfectly pigmented to flatter all skin tones from light to tan to deeper shades. While most women with tan skin will use one of our four foundation shades within the tan category, some women will need to go into the lighter or darker foundation categories. Regardless of whether you are lighter or deeper, tan skin typically needs a warm undertone, rather than a cool undertone. You can zero in on your exact shade with our foundation shade finder.
Pro Tip: If your tan skin is a result of sunbathing, you’ll need foundation a shade or two darker than what you usually wear. Many of us need a deeper foundation shade for summer makeup and a lighter shade in winter.
Concealer for Tan Skin
Concealer is the closest thing there is to a magic wand to get flawless skin. Usually a shade or two lighter than your foundation shade, concealer is applied under the eyes to cover up bags and discoloration. Concealer can also be used to dot and blend over acne, scarring, rosacea and other imperfections for an instant cover-up. Blending is key, otherwise the spot of lighter concealer on your face will be noticeable.
Concealer as a Highlighter
Concealer is not only a corrective makeup tool that erases blemishes, but it also doubles as a highlighter to accentuate features. To use it as a highlighter, try applying concealer as follows:
- At the center of the brow and fanning up through the center of the forehead
- Just below the outer corners of the eyebrows
- At the inner corner of the eye and into the ridge besides your nose
- The area under the eyes, in the shape of an upside-down triangle
- The middle of the chin
Getting the right concealer color for your skin tone is imperative for natural-looking coverage, and Mented makes shades of concealer for women of color so you can find your perfect match. Remember, the concealer should be a shade or two lighter than your foundation. A concealer that is too dark will not achieve the desired effects as a corrective eraser or highlighter. As a person with tan skin, you’ll want to reach for concealers that have warm undertones, rather than pink or cool hues. If you’re unsure about what shade is your perfect match, check out our concealer/contour shade finder.
Blush for Tan Skin
Getting the best blush shade to flatter tan skin is as important as selecting the right foundation and concealer. Too pink of a shade on your cheeks and the cool undertones can make you appear sallow. As with foundation and concealer selection, you’ll be on the lookout for blush colors with warm tones and undertones.
Putting warm blush color selection into practice, let’s use pink shades as an example. With tan skin, you’ll want to skip a true pink. Instead, grab a rose color with a bit of red or orange in it. Likewise, you’ll want to stay away from taupes, purples and other blushes with lots of purple in them.
Here are some blush colors that will sing on your tan skin:
- Warm pink shades like strawberry, rose, punch, or cranberry
- Peach shades like apricot, salmon, coral or true peach
- Orange shades like melon, sherbert, tangerine, or papaya
- Red-brown shades like claret, currant, mahogany, or raisins
Blush with Rich Pigmentation
Blush selection goes beyond determining tones. You’ll also want to pay attention to the depth of the color. The deeper your complexion, the deeper the shade you will need in order for it to stand out on your skin. We created blush for women of color that is perfectly pigmented to look outstanding on every skin tone. Our blush shades are also buildable and blendable, so you can achieve a bolder look by layering on product or create your own color by mixing them together.
Pro Tip: The summer months are the perfect time to dust bronzer on your face for a sun-kissed, radiant glow. However, bronzer doesn’t replace your blush. In fact, bronzer and blush are perfect complements of each other. Bronzer is applied where the sun naturally falls on you – think forehead, cheekbones, and décolletage. On the other hand, blush usually goes on the apples of your cheeks. For next-level makeup artistry, try applying blush based on the shape of your face.
Eye Makeup for Tan Skin
As with other types of makeup, eye makeup for tan skin is best in warm hues. Think nude eyeshadows with peach, honey or red-brown tones in them. If you want to go the extra mile, go for bronze, gold, or amber in metallic shadows for sparkly drama. An on-trend look would incorporate bold oranges like electric orange or blood orange.
Eyeshadow Palettes for the Win
Usually, eyeshadow application involves at least two shades, and more often three or four colors. Blending the right colors together can be a challenge. That’s when an eyeshadow palette is a super-handy tool. An eyeshadow palette with curated shades ensures the colors are complementary. As an added bonus, an eyeshadow palette is easy to travel with so there’s no rifting through your makeup bag for that single eyeshadow color you always manage to misplace.
As with all of Mented’s makeup, our Everyday Eyeshadow palette is perfectly pigmented to stand out on your tan skin. The palette has a variety of options with nine shades ranging from warm nude shades to rich browns in mattes and shimmers. Incredibly blendable, they go on like a dream and are truly perfect for every day – from work to happy hour and beyond.
Pro Tip: Keep your eye makeup on longer, especially in sweltering summer months, with a dab of eyelid primer. Try using a primer specifically for eye makeup, rather than a facial primer. If you don’t have an eyelid primer, dab and blend concealer.
Lip Color for Tan Skin
Which lipstick colors are right for your tan skin? You probably guessed “lipsticks with warm tones.” Well, you’re right!
If you’re not sure about the tones in lipstick colors, we’ve got a simple exercise for you. This exercise can help you identify the right lipstick colors for your tan skin, and more generally, train your eyes to spot cool versus warm tones.
Swatching Lipstick Colors on Your Arm
- Choose a lipstick that you like. Let’s say it’s a nude color.
- Swipe it on the inside of your wrist.
- Swipe your wrist with two very similar nude lipsticks next to the first swatch, just a shade or two off from each other.
- Examine the colors. Does one appear more taupe than the original color? If so, that means it is cooler with more purple added in. Or does it appear more peachy? This means it’s warmer with more orange mixed in.
- Continue swiping similar lipstick shades on your arm, examining the tonal differences. Try to create a swatch with the colors going from warmer at one end and gradually becoming cooler at the other end. At some point, the cooler color will no longer complement your skin tone. You will have more leeway with the warmer hues, meaning you can go warmer and warmer until the color looks off, or maybe if you are very warm-hued, the warmest color in the spectrum looks dynamite on you.
Nude Lipstick Shades for Tan Skin
For women of all skin tones, nude lipstick is the reigning champion of everyday lipstick colors. Nude lipsticks go with any makeup look, any outfit and fit in with any occasion. They are, in a word, versatile.
Again, think warm nude tones for your tan skin. This means not so much taupes, but colors with heavier blends of brown and orange.
Other Lipstick Shades for Tan Skin
While you likely have a nude lipstick or two that are your everyday favorites, other colors that look dynamite on tan skin include:
- Brown Lipsticks – Choose colors with deep warm notes, like caramel or amber. The more pigmented your complexion, the deeper the shade of lipstick you can go – think burgundies and warm cocoa shades.
- Red Lipsticks – Reach for a bright red lipstick with more orange and yellow mixed into it. With its yellow undertones, Mented’s Red & Butter Matte Lipstick is a winner for your tan skin.
- Bold Lipsticks – Looking for head-turning lipstick shades? As always, warmer is the way to go for your tan skin. Coral, tangerine and other electrifying oranges will be stars on your pout. For deeper berry shades, look for ones with notes of chocolate, like mahogany or red-brown.
Pro-Tip: Lip gloss is a perfect stand-in for lipstick when you want a lighter look. You can also layer lipstick and lip gloss together. First, apply your lipstick, let it set, and then apply your gloss. You’ll be looking for the same shades in lip gloss as you would in lipstick. Mented makes a shiny, non-gooey gloss for smooth, anytime wear.
Tan Skin Perfected
Mented has the perfect balance of makeup colors for tan skin to help your warm pigmentation shine through beautifully. No matter your exact skin tones and undertones, we’ve got the foundation shades, blush colors and lipsticks to deliver picture-perfect makeup looks for tan skin in every season.
4 Tips To Achieve Flawless Natural Asian Makeup
Asians are often seen as having perfect skin, flawless makeup, and, in general, just looking gorgeous. Yet we all know that nothing comes by default. This article gives advice and tips on how to rock the fresh-faced, natural Asian makeup look.
How To Perfect A Natural Asian Makeup
1. Back to Basics: Getting Fresh, Dewy Skin Look
Natural Asian makeup often involves a gorgeous complexion that appears to glow. There are several ways to achieve this, depending on what you’re working with. If you’re diligent about skincare or blessed with good genes, you may not need to use foundation at all.
If this is the case, apply concealer in a shade that matches your skin tone (not a shade lighter!) to any areas that are discolored or any blemishes you may want to cover. Set it with a bit of translucent powder and highlight it to your taste.
If you’d love a really perfect finish, you can use a tinted moisturizer, BB or CC cream, or even a full foundation with a dewy finish. Leave all of your matte foundations and powders for another time – in this look, we want sheen and glow.
If you want even more glow, use a highlighter or even a shimmery eyeshadow in the shade lighter than your skin tone. Apply this to your cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and anywhere else you want, such as the bridge of your nose.
2. Finding The Best Foundation For Asian Skin
The most important thing to remember is that buying the right foundation formula and shade is crucial for having good makeup altogether. Always make sure you try shade on your jawline before buying – the right shade is everything you need for impeccable makeup.
If you are an Asian woman looking for a perfect foundation that will complement your eye makeup, there are a few things to be aware of. First of all, you need to know your undertone. Beauty expert Bobby Brown in her book “Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual” recommends yellow-based foundations in contrast to pink ones. She mentions that yellow-toned foundations look perfect and natural on Asian skin.
3. Find Out How do Korean Do Their Natural Eye Makeup
Asian eye makeup has some peculiarities. But, to be frank, mongoloid eyes look pretty gorgeous with natural makeup. You need to know a few tricks about making them more defined, bigger-looking, and longer if they are hooded.
Applying the same light shade on your lid and on your lower lash line will make your eyes ready for further makeup. Use a matte shade to prevent swollen look. By applying a darker shade (brown or burgundy) in the inner and outer corners, you will be adding some depth. Make sure to apply metallic or shimmer eyeshadow in the middle of your lid and in the outer corner.
Brown eyeliner is a great product to have if you have hooded eyes. It is also perfect for daily natural makeup as well as making your eyes look defined. Use soft pencils that blend well. Don’t forget mascara – it is a final product of your eye makeup look.
4. Getting The Glossy Gradient Lip Look
The natural Asian makeup look isn’t about bold lipsticks or bright colors. Instead, opt for a sheer pink lip tint or gloss. If you’d like to try a more complicated look, the glossy gradient lip look is cute and still natural.
To get this look, first, take a concealer in your shade and apply it to your entire mouth. Make sure that the concealer around your mouth blends in well with your foundation or bare skin. Once you’re satisfied with that, apply a pink or berry lipstick to the center of your lips, as shown. Then, blend your lipstick outwards using a Q-tip, brush, or even your finger and top it off with a clear gloss if desired.
A second way to achieve this look is to take two different lipsticks in similar shades – a darker lipstick color and a lighter lipstick color. Take the lighter shade of lipstick and thoroughly apply it on both your top and bottom lip. Next, take your darker, redder or rosier shade and carefully apply it to the center of your lips. Blend with a finger, Q-tip, or brush. Finish the look with a clear gloss. Now you’re ready to enjoy your new, fresh, and natural Asian makeup look!

Top 7 Makeup Tips For Asian Women
Last modified on May 15th, 2021
Asian women, like women of all races, ethnicities, and cultures, have a very unique skin tone and facial structure. This uniqueness can make it difficult to learn what makeup trends and techniques complement your beauty the best. If you’re interested in learning makeup tips geared specifically toward you, keep reading to discover the top seven makeup tips for Asian women.
1. Don’t Be Afraid of Eyeliner
Many Asian women who have hooded eyelids are fearful of wearing eyeliner that is too dramatic or intense for fear that it will make their eyes look too small or receded. However, you should never be afraid to rock winged or graphic eyeliner no matter what your eyelids look like.
2. Avoid Pink
Asian women naturally have yellow undertones in their skin. Wearing makeup that has an abundance of pink undertones clashes with the natural yellow undertones in your skin and ends up looking all wrong. Avoid any makeup that has noticeably pink undertones and try to match the warm undertones in your skin instead.
3. Go Light On Skin Makeup
Asian skin is smooth and even by nature. You don’t need to cake on foundation and powder to achieve gorgeous skin. In fact, applying too much skin makeup to your face can cover up the natural beauty of your skin instead of enhancing it.
Try wearing only a tinted moisturizer and setting it with powder. Or, try a BB or CC cream. Cutting back on your skin makeup will help you save time in the morning and make your natural skin look better, too.
4. Try Purple Blush
Asian women are some of the only women who can pull off purple blush, so take advantage of that privilege. Blush with light lavender or even slightly darker purple undertones can look stunning against the warm undertones of Asian skin.
5. Enhance Your Cheekbones
If you are Asian, chances are you’ve been blessed with naturally high and defined cheekbones. You should try to enhance them even more by applying a light highlighter color, such as a pearl highlighter or a light pink highlighter, across the tops of your cheekbones. This technique will further enhance your cheekbones and help them look even more defined.
6. Wear Monochrome Eye Makeup
For Asian women who do not have eyelid creases, it can be difficult to apply and blend complex eyeshadow looks successfully. You can eliminate this problem by taking advantage of the monochrome eye makeup trend.
Simply apply one shade of cream eyeshadow across the entirety of your lid. Blend it upward toward your brow bone to smooth the edges and voila! You can achieve beautiful, trendy eye makeup without worrying about blending colors together without an eyelid crease to work with.
7. Try Ombré Eyes
Another great way to get around the discouraging challenge of having no eyelid crease is by wearing ombré eye makeup. For times when you don’t want to just wear one color of eyeshadow and are hoping to achieve a more dramatic look for a party or other formal event, ombré eyeshadow can help you bypass your lack of crease and create beautiful, intense eye makeup.
Create an ombré eye makeup look by applying shades in a dark-to-light pattern from your lash line up to your brow bone. Sweep the darkest color closest to your lash line and the lightest color just underneath your brow bone. Apply the eyeshadow in a rounded shape and blend upward to create a seamless finish.
If you are an Asian woman who is struggling with your daily beauty routine, use this post to educate yourself on the top seven makeup tips for Asian women that can help transform the way you apply your makeup for the better.
Mastering the “No Makeup” Makeup Look — South Asian Skin Blog
Color correcting is an extremely important step to pulling off a no makeup makeup look and can significantly cut down the amount of foundation and concealer you end up wearing. The concept of color correcting involves canceling out a color on your face by applying the color that sits directly opposite from it on the color wheel since complimentary colors cancel each other out ultimately neutralizing the skin. For example, under eye circles tend to have a blue or purplish hue so applying peach, orange, or even corals and reds for deeper skin tones, can end up hiding your dark circles completely. Honestly, most of the time I just apply a peach color corrector underneath my eyes and skip concealer since solely applying the peach color is enough to cancel out my dark circles all together. I often hear people complain about how their under eye concealer only makes their dark circles appear grey versus completely hiding them, and their concealer ends up looking “caked on” after the many layers they apply in an attempt to hide their dark circles. While one issue could be that they’re not using a concealer that matches their skin’s undertone, more often than not, the purple hue underneath their eyes just needs to be corrected with a shade of orange. Instead, they’re hoping that using a concealer two shades lighter than their skin tone will brighten that area and remove the unwanted color, but applying that lighter concealer is only bringing that purple color up to a lighter grayish color.
Another instance where color correcting is extremely beneficial is using green to cancel out any redness from inflamed skin, pimples, or rosacea. Color correcting is especially helpful for darker skin tones since we often suffer from skin discoloration, acne scars, and dark spots (and using a red or orange color corrector can also help hide the brown spots and hyperpigmentation). I’ve tried a wide range of color correctors from Bobby Brown’s extremely popular, but pricier, correctors to the Sephora brand correctors, and honestly the $4 color correcting sticks by e.l.f. are my absolute favorite and have worked much better than any of the luxury brands I’ve tried. I use the peach, green, and orange ones to target different concerns.
8 Tips to Master The Asian Eye Makeup for Girls
You might have probably seen that Asian style eye makeup is very different than the traditional American one we are used to seeing. For example, you might be able to tell that Asian style eye makeup focuses on making the eyes look bigger and doll-like, they don’t use too many dark and smokey colors, they go for big thin lashes and an overall “natural” look. It looks very good most of the time, and we may see ourselves interested in trying this makeup style sometimes.
It is interesting to play with makeup styles and change them up from time to time; who knows? you might find a new amazing look that fits you perfectly when doing this. In this post, we will introduce you to the Asian eye makeup style and give you the best tips and tricks to pull it off, as well as the best products and how to do so. Try it out!
Tips and Tricks to an easy Asian eye makeup
As in any style, Asian eye makeup doesn’t have to be hard at all. With the right technique and application, anyone can pull off this interesting eye look style. For you to have the best Asian eye makeup, we will give you some tips and tricks that will make everything so much easier and more beautiful for you. Keep an eye and follow them, and you will see how you transform into an Asian looking Geisha of some sort.
1. Ombre is the new smokey
As we all know, Asian don’t have much lid space in their eyes. This is one of the main reasons why doing eye makeup is so hard for Asian people, and they never seem to follow the regular American eye makeup tricks and steps.
In this case, smokey eyes are not very common within the Asian eye looks. Instead of swiping dark shades into their outer crease, as Asian don’t have one, they prefer to place color in an Ombre form. What do I mean by this? They take darker shades from the lash line until the lid and then progressively apply lighter shades as they go up on the eyes.
Girl, go for Ombre from now on, and you will see how your Asian eye makeup looks 10 times better! The full tutorial with all the tips and tricks is below!
2. Keep your eyes open
Many of us tend to close our eyes when we are doing eye makeup. If you are wishing to do Asian eye makeup, this isn’t going to be the best way to do it for you. Keep your eyes open when applying eyeshadow, eyeliner, lashes, or mascara, and you will see how it will be so much easier to see where you are actually applying the product, as well as giving it a better placement in the eye.
3. Skip the wing
Asian eye looks are characterized by its softness and naturality. You won’t want to have a huge thick winged eyeliner if you are going for this style; it is the complete opposite. Instead, take some smudgeable gel or pencil eyeliner and line your lash line with a thin line. Then, smoke it out and blend it with the eyeshadow with a small pencil brush.
4. Use some color
Korean and Japanese eye looks have a lot of colors most of the times. Why not get a little fun and out of the comfort zone by following this style? Grab some colored eyeshadows and eyeliners, put them on your eyes, and see how you reincarnate the Asian eye look with just one thing.
Best eye palette for Asian eye makeup
Asian skin tones are difficult to match with eye shadow shades, as not all of the colors complement and go with it. For this reason, not all eye shadow palettes are perfect for Asian eye makeup. Of course, shades are not everything, as the quality of the eyeshadows also has to be on point. Here we have our best pick eyeshadow palettes that you will pull off your Asian eye makeup with:
1. Laura Mercier Nights Out Eye Shadow Palette

If we are talking about Asian eye makeup looks, how could we not mention an actual Asian brand’s eyeshadow palette? This Korean palette is probably the best one when doing an Asian inspired eye look. What is the difference between Asian eyeshadow formulations and Western ones? Korean eyeshadows usually have more of a glossy sheen as a finish, they are not that pigmented, they aren’t usually matte, and they are more subtle; just as Asian eye looks are. In other words, what better way to imitate a look than using its own products. Plus, its cool to try foreign products!
Easy beginner tutorials for Asian eye makeup
Eye makeup rules and steps change a lot when we are talking about the Asian eye makeup style. Everything you have learned for now may not work when trying to do Asian eye makeup, but don’t worry, we have got you covered. How? well, we will give you an easy beginner tutorial for Asian eye makeup. Follow all the steps, and see how your eyes have never looked this good before!
1. Choose the colors
As you are a beginner in eyeshadow and Asian eye makeup looks, you might want to start with lighter, neutral, natural colors. As you get more experienced, you can, of course, hop on the more fun and bright colored eyeshadows, but that isn’t the case for now!
If your skin is cooled tone, choose brown colors and tones for your eyeshadow. If it is warm toned, you can also use terracotta or red-brown type of colors.
Now, proceed to choose three shades from the color scheme you chose for the eye look:
1. The light shade should be a shimmery white or very light tone color like a highlighter would be.
2. The medium shade should be close to your skin tone’s color, and it will work as the transition shade.
3. The dark shade will basically be the contour shade to give depth to the eyes. You can decide the darker the shade will be depending on the level of glam you want for your eye look.
After doing this, you are ready to start the action!
2. Prime your eyes
This is a step you will never want to miss when it comes to eyeshadow. It will make it stay put for longer and the colors apply better and look brighter. Just grab your favorite one and prep those eyelids!
3. Apply transition shade
Take your medium transition shade and blend it across the eyelid with a large blending brush. Do this until the color is evenly distributed in your eye.
4. Apply darker color
Take the dark color with a precision shadow brush and apply it as close to your lash line as you can. Take it slightly upwards, just a bit above the lash line. Just be careful not to take it too far up, and blend it so it doesn’t look harsh. This will look even better if the shade has a shimmery or satin finish, as many Asian eye looks have lots of it.
5. More transition shade
Grab the transition shade again and use it to blend the edges of the darker one. Apply it right on top of the dark one, being careful not to have harsh lines between them as it won’t look appealing. Once you have a nice area covered with this shade, and your eye has a kind of ombre look, this step is done!
6. Lighter shade
It is time for the light shimmery highlting shade, which will just give the prettiest final touch to your look. Apply it on the highest part of your eyelid, just above the transition shade up until your browbone. Buff it and blend until everything has a faded look, and the 3 colored ombre looks perfect. You can take some of this shadow and apply it in your inner corners, too.
7. Pop on some liner
Grab a dark eyeliner that matches the shades you chose and create a thin line as close to your upper lash line as you can. Then, blend it with a small pencil brush and create a smokier look with it.
You can also take some white pencil eyeliner and apply it to your lower lash line, which will make your eyes look bigger and doll- like, the iconic aesthetic of Asian eye makeup.
Curl your eye lashes and apply a thin coat of mascara. Don’t over do it in this step, Asian eye makeup looks are not fans of huge thick eyelashes. Here, the simpler, the better. Also, don’t apply mascara on the bottom lashes, just the top ones.
After mastering this ombre natural eye look, you can get risky and fun and do the same with colorful shades. You can basically change it up as much as you want when it comes to colors and finishes. Have some fun!
Now that you have read this article and finally learned all about Asian eye makeup, you will be able to easily imitate those Asian eye looks that you admire so much.

Shades of makeup for dark skin and brown eyes
The choice of shades in makeup is usually determined by the color type of appearance. But in the case of a “warm” combination of brown eyes and dark skin, the paradox is that “cold” shades look harmonious against such a background, creating the contrast necessary for harmony.
- From the range of “warm” shades, brown-eyed brunettes with dark skin can be matched with beige-brown tones, burgundy, marsh green, terracotta, coral, peach, and with them – gold, bronze, copper with a soft metallic shine effect.

- As for the “cold” palette, you can experiment with blue, purple and emerald in eye makeup, and use fuchsia on the lips.

Makeup for girls with dark skin, brown eyes and blond hair
Teatum Jones © imaxtree
It should be noted that brunettes with brown eyes and dark skin have a wide range of make-up options available. Blondes are more difficult: they need makeup that can smooth out the contrast between blonde hair and dark eyes and skin. Makeup artists advise the following:
- Emphasize the contour of the eyes. But it is important to keep the balance in the image. This result gives a soft outline of the contour using a kayal pencil or eyeliner. Discard clear lines. Blend them with a brush. The result will be delicate – which is what fair-haired girls want.
- Avoid “thick” dark haze on eyelids .The reason is the same – a strong darkening in the makeup of the eyes of blondes can look vulgar. If you choose the smoky effect, then it is light, translucent.
- Highlight lips . A winning move for blondes (given that they should be careful with intense eye makeup) is to use bright lipstick. Combined with a moderate emphasis on the eyes, this will help create overall harmony.

90,000 11 ideas for brown, green or blue eyes
Have you already tanned? We will tell you what needs to be changed in makeup to look as attractive as possible
Summer makes its own adjustments to our beauty habits, and it concerns not only skin care, but also makeup. If in the warm season you do not hide from the sun and sunbathe with pleasure, then the “winter” tonal means will have to be set aside and the shade should be chosen a little darker.It should be noted that tanned skin is generally smoother in tone, imperfections are less noticeable on it, which means that you will not need a lot of cosmetics. Let’s talk about the features of a harmonious make-up for dark and tanned skin.
Makeup rules for tanned skin
The usual light foundation after a couple of weeks spent at sea will cover your face like a mask. You need a shade that matches tanned skin. Try to find a product with a light and comfortable texture – in summer you don’t need a thick layer of foundation. The optimal solution would be a cream with a care effect.
Sunburned skin is the key to a fresh, rested look. Cosmetics with a radiant texture will help to fix and enhance the effect. A product like Giorgio Armani’s Fluid Sheer is useful: it can be used as a highlighter or added to foundation.
Bright colors look great against tanned skin.Accentuate your eyes with colored eyeliner or mascara. The accent on the lips will not be superfluous – choose a matte or creamy lipstick of a rich shade (it is better to leave glossy “vinyl” for evening outings in the autumn-winter season).

Makeup for dark skin and brown eyes
The combination of tanned skin and brown eyes will highlight the golden glow.
- First, follow the usual procedure: even out the tone, define the eyebrows and style them with a transparent gel.
- But the face correction is no longer a sculptor, but a bronzer with shimmering particles – thanks to this, the tan will look even more beautiful. But here it is important not to overdo it. If you overdo it with volume, there is a risk of getting the effect of an oily sheen.
For daytime make-up, brown eyes can be accentuated with beige-gold, bronze or copper eyeshadows. Apply them to movable eyelids and blend to a translucent layer. Evening makeup implies more saturated shades of eyeshadows with a metallic effect: brown, plum, and graphite. The main thing is not to create too dense coverage. Summer makeup should be light.

Makeup for dark skin and green or blue eyes
Light eyes already look advantageous on a tanned face. But this does not mean that you should not draw additional attention to them.
This can be done, firstly, by shaping the eyebrows – if you highlight them with a more saturated color, the eyes will immediately become more noticeable.
Secondly – due to the graphic elements in the make-up and the use of dark shades. The necessary accent will be provided by ordinary arrows.The selection of the inner contour will cope with the task just as well. More is not required: rich smoky eyes in combination with dark skin, as a rule, look vulgar.
Here, as with the brown eyes, it doesn’t hurt to add a little shine. A good solution would be the highlights in the corners of the eyes, created with the help of a highlighter.

Makeup for brown eyes and dark skin (photo)
Many are sure that there is nothing more attractive than dark skin, since light skin sometimes looks painful, although it is considered aristocratic. Someone is lucky, and dark skin is a gift from nature. And some have to use self-tanning, go to the solarium and spend many days in the summer on the beach.
Dark skin tone and brown eyes are already different tones in makeup. How to make makeup for brown eyes and dark skin? Let’s take a look at the general characteristics.
General rules of make-up for dark-skinned people
As with any make-up, an important component is a well-chosen base. It is important that the tone is not lighter than the natural one, so it is worth choosing correctors for darker shades, even brown ones. The lighter the foundation, the more unnatural the makeup will look.
To highlight the cheekbones, you need a golden or coffee blush. For a party, a bronzer with shining particles is a great option, thanks to which the skin will shine. It looks pretty pretty.
Preparation for makeup
For some reason, there is such a stereotype that dark skin is always perfectly smooth and silky, which is fundamentally wrong. Dryness, sensitivity, irritation – all this is not alien and swarthy. However, the most common problem is that the skin is too oily.Of course, the care of such skin must be appropriate. Care products and foundation should in no case contain various oils that will only aggravate the situation. The first thing we pay attention to is products with a matting effect. It will not be superfluous to degrease the skin of the eyelids and powder it before applying makeup. This manipulation will prevent the makeup from rolling off in a matter of minutes. Pay attention to products designed for dark skin and you can’t go wrong.
What to do with foundation?
A girl with a dark skin color is even more difficult to choose her tone than a light one.Not everyone succeeds the first time, and many even use two bases at once, which are mixed, since you simply cannot find a suitable shade. Dilute the dark tone with a soft pink blush. Powder is a must, especially for the T-zone, which can shine unpleasantly. As for the powder, it should be loose, and it should be applied to the skin only after the foundation and moisturizer are completely absorbed into the skin.
It is quite easy to do make-up for brown eyes and dark skin with your own hands, since the owners of such a set can use the brightest and most unusual shades.Of course, natural pastels and vibrant saturated colors are ideal. For everyday makeup, sand, bronze and brown eyeshadows are excellent choices, do not forget about the brown pencil. A festive makeup option for brown eyes and dark skin is orange, chocolate golden and other extravagant colors that will go with your outfit. Bright shadows can be complemented with kayal. It can be a classic black pencil, or it can be a bright version that matches the color of shadows or eyes.
As for the eyelashes, nature usually endows dark-skinned beauties with long and thick eyelashes, but they are often straight, so make-up artists recommend tweaking them with tweezers.
But the mascara should be applied like this: start with the upper lashes, first in the central part, then go to the outer edge. And don’t forget to paint over the inner corner. The second layer of mascara should only be applied when the first is dry. Mascara is not reapplied to the lower lashes.
Owners of dark skin can happily clap their hands, because it is they who, without a twinge of conscience, can paint their lips with the most daring and brightest shades of red, plum, cherry.Pearlescent lip glosses will also look good, it will not be superfluous to have a gloss with shimmering elements in a cosmetic bag, but you can combine it only with not very bright shades of shadows, otherwise the makeup will look vulgar.
What colors do we choose?
The uniqueness of dark skin and brown eyes is that both warm and cold shades are suitable for this color type. And contrast looks especially advantageous against such a bright background.
So, take note of the following rules.If you are a lover of warm colors, then the following tones are suitable for makeup for brown eyes and dark skin: beige-brown, burgundy, swamp-green, terracotta, coral, peach, gold. The cold palette also pleases with beautiful colors: blue, purple, emerald. The color of fuchsia fits perfectly on the lips.
Makeup artists advise beginners, before going all out and putting on the brightest shades, first practice on universal shades.

- Do not forget to emphasize the contour of the eyes, a kayal pencil or eyeliner is suitable for this purpose. However, clear lines do not belong here. To avoid visible borders, blend them with a brush.

Asian Eye Makeup
Features of Asian eyes
A makeup artist should abandon the usual makeup techniques when working with a Korean or Japanese woman. On the Asian eye shape, European makeup will fall badly. It is necessary to take into account the shape and location of the eyelid.
The superciliary arch in eastern women is not very pronounced, so the eyelid looks straight or, as it were, absent. At the same time, the structure of the face of modern Mulan implies prominent cheekbones, which makes the eyes deep-set.
They also differ markedly in shape:
- elongated and tapered towards the outer corner;
- hemisphere (the line of the lower eyelid is straight, the upper one is an arc).
The secret of a geisha’s beauty lies in the purity of her skin. Girls carefully choose not only care, but also decorative cosmetics. Only products formulated with natural ingredients can provide radiant and healthy skin. Mineral foundation for powder, blush or eyeshadow is easy to apply without clogging pores.
Asian makeup is fresh. It seems that the girl’s face was not touched by the master’s brush at all. Residents of the Celestial Empire rarely resort to creating a bright accent on their lips. A catchy accessory like scarlet lipstick is the exception rather than the rule.
Despite the special cut, smokey ice makeup of various shades is perfect for Asian eyes. A look with a mysterious drag gives the charisma of oriental seducers a truly fatal force. This has been proven by many Hollywood actresses – even in the photo, girls with an Asian appearance can convey their riddle.
Oriental divas Françoise Yip, Liu Yifei, Shu Qi, and Lucy Liu are striking examples of the fact that exotic beauty can conquer the world film industry. European fashionistas also want to imitate them, this explains the relevance of the question of how to make Asian eyes with the help of makeup.

- White pencil and mascara with lengthening effect will help to “open” your eyes. Along the edge of the lower eyelid, draw a confident outline of white, the closer to the lash line, the better. The mascara should be applied twice to give your lashes beautiful volume.
An important point in how to paint Asian eyes is the purpose of applying the make-up.If this is an everyday walk with the dog or going to the cinema with girlfriends, then you can get by with a minimal set of cosmetics. However, the daily makeup for Asian eyes also has its own subtleties.
Daytime Makeover: Tips

Amber blush. How to choose the right blush color
Blush is one of the most important elements of any make-up.Using them, you can correct the oval of the face and give it a healthy and blooming look. The right blush can make you look younger. The main thing is to find your own shade. Our tips will help you with this.
Before we analyze all the nuances when choosing a shade of blush, it should be noted that all blush have a finish – the effect that they leave on the skin after application. There are three types of finishes: matte, satin and gloss. For daytime make-up, it is advisable to use a blush with a matte or satin finish, and for an evening or special occasion – with a shine.
There are three basic rules when choosing a blush shade.
1) The lighter the skin, the lighter the blush should be, and vice versa, the darker the skin, the darker the blush tone.
2) For the makeup to look holistic and harmonious, the shade of blush and lipstick must match.
3) Blush is matched to skin tone, eye and hair color. Since we cannot radically change the color of the eyes and skin tone, it is they who should be paid special attention to when choosing your own shade of blush.
For porcelain skin, a light apricot blush will do.
A pale pink blush will look best on girls with ivory skin.
Owners of beige skin tone should choose an amber blush.
For mulatto women with a reddish-brown skin tone, a blush of a rose shade is suitable.
Dark brown eyes will favorably emphasize the blush of berry shades, the taboo on beige and brown blush tones, as they will make brown eyes not expressive.
Light brown eyes will look more expressive with mauve shades of blush, a taboo on apricot tones.
Blue eyes will become even “bluer” with warm shades of peach and cold pink, a taboo on plum blush tones, which visually reduce the eyes.
Green eye color is best emphasized by pink blush, taboo on maroon colors.
Also, when choosing a blush, it is imperative to take into account the color of the hair. For example, pink, coral, apricot and beige shades of blush are suitable for London women.Brown-haired and dark-blond women are best suited to brown, amber, honey and brick shades. Owners of red hair should pay attention to the blush with an orange and golden hue. Apricot, coral, terracotta and red blush shades work best on brunettes.
As you can see, choosing your ideal blush is not so easy, especially if you are still a beginner in this business, so we advise you to start with universal shades that suit almost all color types – these are peach and beige-pink blush.

Blush is one of the effective attributes of cosmetics for mature skin. They are irreplaceable assistants in the constant struggle for youth, beauty and fresh complexion. However, it is not recommended to use blush for older women with wrinkled, flaccid skin, as well as for very young ladies who already have their own natural blush. The blush softens the lines of the face, masks bruises under the eyes, makes dull skin look youthful, gives it radiance, sexuality and freshness.
The blush correctly places accents on the face, balances the entire make-up. To make the face look more elongated, the blush should be applied closer to the hair growth area. Pull in your cheeks a little, and cover the formed cavities with a blush of a darker shade, as if drawing the letter “C”. The end of the line should be at the temples, but not above the eyes.
For a natural looking blush, apply where you would normally have your natural blush, blending well with the blush.For a sexier eye makeup, apply a dash of shimmery blush to the highest point of the cheekbones. If you apply a matte dry blush along the hairline, then this way you can significantly improve the complexion. Using this technique, the blush is applied from the right to the left ear, and then carefully shaded towards the face.
Makeup Artist Tip: Apply a dash of blush to the temples, tip of the chin and forehead along the contour of hair growth. It will be very refreshing and will give you the look of a beautiful face frame.

Now let’s move on to how to choose the right blush color. Cold tones are suitable for pinkish, light skin: from pink to acrid pink. Give preference to natural shades: peach, pink, apricot, coral.

Which lipstick suits brunettes?
Hair color certainly plays an important role in choosing the right lipstick. However, this role is far from decisive. It’s just that brunettes usually have a similar type of appearance, if this shade of hair they have is natural. However, skin tone and eye color will also matter. Based on these characteristics, you can make general recommendations in the choice of lipstick.However, there are other ways to determine your color type. They will help you understand if cold or warm tones are preferable for you.
- Method one: Pay attention to the shade of the veins on your wrist. If their shade seems to you a cold blue, then cold tones will suit you better. If the veins look a little purple and warmer to you, then you should try warm lipstick shades. Of course, the veins themselves are the same for everyone, but they are the best way to see your skin tone and transparency.
- Method Two: Try to bring the gold and silver foil plates to your face one at a time. Evaluate which foil makes your face stand out best, making it bright and attractive. If you choose silver foil, then “cold” lipsticks are suitable for you, and if gold, you should choose warm colors.
What are the distinctive features of choosing lipstick for all brunettes? Here are a few things to consider for naturally dark hair girls in a beauty store.
- Brunettes are generally considered to be brighter than blondes. At the very least, this is due to the fact that the contrast of hair and skin is brighter, which means that the face is especially prominent. Therefore, pale lipsticks can look almost invisible. Even for daytime makeup, brunettes are advised to choose slightly richer shades than blondes. This is especially emphasized in evening make-up.
- How to choose lipsticks suitable for brunettes? It is best for brunettes to choose composite tones.Since their appearance is quite bright, just such shades will look more noble and elegant. Pure red or pure pink can usually be afforded by blondes, whose lips are the only accent with such makeup. In the case of brunettes, attention will inevitably be distracted by the contrast of the skin with dark hair and eyebrows. Therefore, instead of pure colors, you should choose more complex shades: coral, pink-red, cherry, peach and others.
- If a girl with dark hair wants to choose especially bright or dark shades of lipstick, you need to carefully monitor the condition of the skin.
