Before you can apply makeup properly, its important to understand your facial contours. It’s also important to understand that a lot of makeup guides available out there are catered to western/caucasian faces. I’m going to highlight to you the difference between asian and western faces:
And here is Charlize Theron, one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood:
Asian faces are usually wider overall, while Caucasian faces are more narrow.
Asian cheekbones protrude sideways, while Caucasian cheekbones are usually higher.
Asian faces have a relatively lower nose bridge while Caucasian noses potrude at a higher angle.
Asian brow bone do not protude as much and are much more shallow while caucasians have a more deep brow bone and deeper set eyes.
Asian faces has a wider forehead, while Caucasian faces have a more narrower forehead.
Asian faces have shorter and and flatter chin contours compared to Caucasian chins which are longer and sharper.
So what does these differences mean to us Asian girls? It means the right use of contouring techniques to enhance and sharpen our much more solid contours to give definition to our face shape. This also means that eyeshadow techniques that works on those models you see in the magazines might not work on you.
