Since there are two colors of eyeshadow, you have to make sure that you apply the lighter shade first. Apply this shade all over your lids. Don’t make a mistake of applying the darker shade first. This will only make the asian eyes look smaller. Make sure that you cover the whole area of the eyelids with this lighter shade. Start from the inner eyelids going outward toward the area below the browbone. Blend the eyeshadow well. You will know it id blended well if it leaves a smooth and finish.
After the lighter shade application, you could apply the darker shade. The darker eyeshadow shade serves as an accent to the Asian eyes. Only apply the darker shade on the crease of the eye to create an illusion of crease. Most Asian women have no eye creases. The iollusion of a crease makes eyes look bigger, giving the Asian eyes a brighter and wide-eyed look. So, start from the inner crease going outward and make sure this is blended well again. Use the brush or applicator to so so for a smoother and even finish.
The last things to be applied on are the mascara and the eyeliner. These help outline the eyes. It gives the asian eyes a better and brighter look too.
