We can’t even count all the ways Asians have tried to achieve bigger eyes.

Today, we’re gonna keep it simple. What’s an easy way to get bigger eyes without hurting your wallet with surgery? False eyelashes.

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 #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.

TUTORIAL: Electric Winged Eyes

 

Everybody loves the winged eyeliner trend. It’s chic, fun and effortlessly intensifies the eyes! This summer, word has it that the latest summer trend for eye makeup is electric eyes. Urban Decay has recently released an electric eyeshadow palette, called the Electric Pressed Pigment Palette that you can buy for $49 dollars on Urban Decay’s website.

At a first glance it may not seem like the most practical palette for your everyday look. It oddly reminds me of my childhood-favorite, Lisa Frank, with all its bright, slightly blinding neon colors.

So the question is, how on earth are you supposed to make those colors look attractive on your face? If I tried this myself at home, I would probably end up looking like a trippy clown.

Thank goodness for makeup guru and beauty blogger Jen Chae’s (known as frmheadtotoe on her Youtube channel) tutorial, where she teaches us how to combine the electric palette with the winged eyeliner that looks effortlessly cool!

Tutorial: Get Instant Double Eyelids (Without Surgery!)

Currently, South Korea has the world’s highest per capita rate of cosmetic plastic surgery. In fact, Miss Korea Kim Yumi had absolutely no problem discussing her multiple procedures. Then there’s the woman who was so obsessed with Miranda Kerr‘s looks that she decided to go under the knife in an effort to look like the Australian Victoria’s Secret model. This phenomenon has become so normalized that a television show called “Let’s Beauty” allows audiences to follow along with someone’s cosmetic transformation.

Among the various cosmetic surgeries, the double eyelid surgery is the most requested and popular procedure for East Asians. The double eyelid surgery is designed to create or enhance the eyelid crease. The procedure is known to be simple and quick. As a result, many women appear to be getting the procedure done even in their teenage years.

Despite the growing popularity of cosmetic procedures, some people refuse to go under the knife and have looked for other ways to enhance their physical features. For instance, some Asian women are turning to photoshop for that confidence boost.

Then, there are some who turn to make up. If you’re hoping to get the appearance of a double eyelid, but you’re not planning on getting surgery for it, we’ve got just the thing. Here’s a tutorial on how to achieve a double eyelid using just make up.

Audrey’s Days of Summer | Summer Hair: Braids

A secret tip: Rub in a leave-in conditioner or serum before braiding your hair (I like to use unrefined coconut oil). It not only makes your hair easier to braid, but it also sinks in and conditions damaged hair. At the end of the day, rinse it out.
