I’m no expert at doing eye makeup. When I started using eye makeup, it was all I could do to stop myself from looking like someone punched me in the eyes, because at that time, I had the strange notion that purple/plum eyeshadow was the way to go. Silly me! Now, I know I absolutely CANNOT wear purple/plum eyeshadow at all! It makes me look like I haven’t slept in 20 years, or like I got punched in the face.
So, I started experimenting and since I have fair asian colouring, I realised I look pretty good in green shades or pastel shades (sometimes). I’d just slap the colours on haphazardly but with enough experimentation, I have now slowly learnt to make sure that it actually emphasises my eyes instead of just screaming “LOOK! COLOUR!!” heh…
Here are 2 is one makeup tutorial off Youtube that I found quite useful for beginners or even if you just want to improve on your technique. Its done on an Asian model though, so it would be more helpful for Asian (Chinese) girls. Its also in Cantonese so those who understand Cantonese will have an advantage over the rest of us who don’t.
The eyes are the hardest part to do (for me) so, if you want to learn how to do eyes, just give these a watch and happy experimenting! (I think the video is visible now 🙂
