Chinese New Year is approaching faster than I thought. I can hardly find time between all that cleaning, clearing, last minute shopping for clothes and shoes, to blog. But you see, I love you guys very much, so despite all that mad rush, I’m doing a highly requested eye makeup tutorial today. Just for you!
It’s also a good time to launch this makeup tutorial since most girls would spend more effort on applying makeup when they go visiting so what better time than now to share a quick and easy eye makeup tutorial for the new year?
In today’s tutorial, we will use the Vertical Gradient Method Of Eyeshadow Application, a great method for those with monolids or have a fold that is very near to the lashline. These characteristics are typical of Asian eyes.
Previously, in Part 2 of the Eyeshadow Tutorials for Asians series, I used neutrals as those are the easiest to blend and would look good on all skin tones and eye colors. Shades of blue will be used in this tutorial, for those who want to move away from browns and neutrals, for a more fun look!

Step 1: Prime the Lids
Apply UDPP in Eden all over the lid first, then Milk.
Step 2: Base Color to Mark Perimeter
I love The Face Shop Eyeshadow PK103 because it is just so versatile – it works on the lid, inner corner, lower lashline, brown bone highlight, cheekbone highlight – and behaves like a chameleon – blends in with any color family!
Apply the shimmering base up to the socket line. Be sure not to leave a line that shows an obvious divide between the naked brow bone area and PK103. It’s quite hard to get a harsh line with PK103 anyway.
