How do I make my face look smaller? How do I make my eyes look bigger?
These are two questions I hear all the time when I travel in the Far East and when I meet Asian-American women at home. I always register these women’s concerns, but I cannot offer an easy color trick or application technique as the solution. Instead, I talk beauty philosophy. Asian beauty is characterized by round, smooth faces and thick, gorgeous hair. I urge Asian women to take stock of their many unique and beautiful features and not try to appear Caucasian. I believe that Asian women are among the most beautiful women in the world.
In general, I think Asian women look their most beautiful when not wearing a lot of makeup. I recommend a light-to-medium hand at most.
Fundamental to my approach to Asian makeup is the use of yellow-based foundation and powder. I encounter a lot of Asian women who are reluctant to try any product that is yellow-based. For years, Asian women were instructed to wear pink makeup colors to counteract their natural skin tones. But I feel adamant that pink- or red-based makeup looks old-fashioned on Asian women it perpetuates a very unmodern china doll look.
