Asian Makeup


When speaking about Asian Makeup the first and most important step is the choice of products and the sequence of products that we use. It is not necessarily needed to use Japanese or Korean products to do a Japanese Make up. It is totally a different makeup with different priorities. The most important part of Asian style Makeup is that the skin has to be perfectly even. So the makeup base that we use for this type of makeup is absolutely crucial. Is has to be a pore defining base that makes the skin even and ready for the foundation.

The foundation has to be the same tone as the skin is and if possible one tone lighter. There is no doubt that for a Asian style makeup you will need a good and strongly covering makeup base. Concealer is the next important step to make the skin tone even and nice. This products has to match with the color of the foundation and has to go around the mouth corners, under the eyes and at the sides of the nose. Then it is time to apply the powder in order to make the makeup sit properly. The powder has to be transparent or of the color of your makeup but not darker. It is perfect for Asian style makeup to use a lighter powder then you actual skin ton.

One tone lighter makes your skin perfect for this type of make up. If you think you will look to pale don’t worry because you really won’t. Then the second most important step is to choose the right color for your cheeks. In Asian style makeup we never take brown or red colors for the blush but always pink, light pink to strong pink ones.
Coming to the most captivating part that is the eyes. Of course you will have to work on creating as much as possible an oriental shape. This you will do with eyeliner and eye-shadow.


It is important to try to make an oriental shape a cat like shape. To make a real Asian style makeup the right colors to use are black, dark grey, dark blue and dark violet and pink.
The finishing touch for your perfect makeup is black mascara and if you want to give it a even more dramatic touch you can also use false lashes.
The other very important aspect of Japanese style makeup is the whole skincare routine to do before the makeup itself. On a very good skin that is clean, has no dead skin cells and perfectly moisturized every makeup looks better. As we said at the beginning in this type of makeup the base is the most important. The total focus in this makeup is on the perfection of the skin and on the shape of the eyes.

Japanese makeup is almost half way done if you did a good base. The skin has to look perfect like the skin of a doll and the blush has to be applied roundly and be in a pink shade. The eyes have to be in an oriental shape and defined with both eyeliner and black eye-shadow to be more smokey and the makeup has to be fixated with powder that is at least the same tone of the makeup or one tone lighter.
