Is there anything wrong with small, sharp eyes? Absolutely not. A number of Asia’s most popular models and celebs rock small eyes.
Despite this, there is no doubt that big eyes are currently the desired look in Asia and it seems like people will stop at nothing to get it. We can’t even count all the ways Asians have tried to achieve bigger eyes. There are big pupil lenses, tons of “big eye” makeup methods, the popular double eyelid surgery, eyelid tape, eyelid glue, and (we kid you not) double eyelid training glasses.
Today, we’re gonna keep it simple. What’s an easy way to get bigger eyes without hurting your wallet with surgery? False eyelashes.
Makeup guru xteeener is here to show us all a couple of tips and tricks with fake lashes so we can get big Asian eyes.
TIP #1: Choose the right kind of glue.
There are tons of false eyelash glues available. Be sure to check out your options. Some dry on clear while others dry on black. Some are dispensed from a tube while others are applied with a wand. Don’t be afraid to explore.
TIP #2: Be careful when removing the lashes.
You may cause the lash to lose its shape if you remove them harshly. xteeener shows us various ways in the video below.
TIP #3: Trim your lashes.
Before any gluing goes on, measure and trim your lashes to avoid discomfort.
TIP #4 Patience.
Wait 10-30 seconds after applying the glue to the lash band. This way, you’ll avoid the lash slipping and sliding out of place.
TIP #5: You have options.
Some lashes are attached to a thick black band while others have a clear band. You can choose between natural-looking lashes, full lashes and even doll lashes. Be sure to explore. xteeener gives a number of great lash suggestions you can try out.
TIP #6: Layers.
If you want a more full/voluminous look, don’t be afraid to layer lashes on top of one another. Layering lashes of different lengths and volume are even better.
TIP #7: Placement is everything.
You can drastically alter the shape of your eye depending on the way you place your fake lashes. Check it out in the video below.
