Makeup Tips for Asian Skin

The best thing you can do in addition to learning how to apply your own makeup is to know what colors and makeup styles are right for your skin tone.

With the advancement of cosmetic companies creating colors for every shade under the sun, there should be no excuse for you to not know what eye shadows, lipsticks, blush, etc., will complement your skin. We'll focus on makeup for Asian skin.

Asian Skin:

- When it comes to foundation, keep in mind that the majority of Asian skin has a yellow undertone. You never want to appear chalky or like a ghost by using foundation meant for different undertones. Choose a shade that is as close to your natural skin tone as possible--no darker and no lighter. If in doubt, ask a makeup expert to help you pick your shade.

- Eye makeup should be limited to browns and blacks. Espresso shades with shimmer, as well as plums, raisin and grays look stunning.

- To make your eyes appear larger or add more depth, consider applying eye makeup with gradation of color, starting with the darker shade at the lash line and finishing with the lightest color at the brow bone.

- For your lashes, wear black or dark gray mascara and curl your lashes to make your eyes stand out. If you can get away with it, lining the bottom rims of your eyes with white eye liner really sets off your look.

- When it comes to lipstick, tinted glosses can be your best friend. Ruby and coffee shades are perfect for evening and mauves, taupes and caramel colors for daytime. If you're wearing heavy eye makeup, go soft on the lip color and vice-versa so your face doesn't look completely overdone.

- You can add contour to your face with blush. Choose shades such as pale bronze, pink or soft apricot colors.

- Avoid makeup colors that are too frosted or silvery...sometimes this can cause your skin to look washed out.
