Here Are 7 Steps For Perfect Chinese Eye Makeup
Get a heavy duty concealer to hide all your blemishes and dark circles. This will help in lifting the eyes and provide a nicer definition.
Eye Makeup Base
Next, fill up the eyelids using a creamy nude liner or kohl. This will brighten up your eyes and help in hiding the pigmentation further. If your eyelids are fairer than your face, you can skin this step. Now follow with a soft shimmery silver or white eye shadow and apply all over your eye lids.
Hot Pink Eyeshadow
The next step is to apply a matte shade of hot pink eyeshadow on your crease and use a blending brush to blend it softly. Make sure not to over blend as you want to get a stronger crease line.
Nude Kohl & Plum Eye Shadow
Next apply your nude colored kohl pencil on your waterline to provide an illusion of fuller and bigger eyes. A variety of companies offer kohl pencils in nude shades these days. Follow with a plum shade and apply in the outer corners of the eyes. Again blend it with the hot pink eye shadow you applied earlier.
The most important feature of Chinese eye makeup is the winged eyeliner. To get this look, take an old card and place on the outer wing of your eye to make a slanted line. Use the same concealer, which was used in the under eye area. Now draw another slanted line joining the center of the eye with the outer corner. A liquid liner works best for creating this dramatic look. You can change the angle of the liner according to the shape of your eyes. But the important thing is to keep a sharp angle to give it that distinct Chinese touch.
A Strong Slanted Streak
Now use the same black eye liner and make a tiny pointed end at the inner corner of your eyes.
Finally follow with the application for false eye lashes, curl them and apply mascara to complete the perfect Chinese eye look.
