The Eyes and Eyeshadow
Japanese girls' eyes are an enchanting and unique Asian feature. Therefore, a lot of time should be spent on enhancing the eyes and making sure the colours you choose to go around the eye are suitable for your skin tone. Use dark or black mascara, as well as black liquid eyeliner to really bring out Japanese almond-shaped eyes. Use shades of bronzes and grey or browns, which will complement your skin tone. For nighttime, or for a party look, choose bright blues and greens. Avoid yellows, reds or oranges; they will just not suit.
Concealer and Skin Tones
Make sure you use a foundation that has a yellow undertone rather than the cream one common with Western brands. In addition, always use a powder over your foundation to lessen shininess. Many Japanese girls think they should use pink or cream make-up shades to counteract their natural skin tones, but this can create a very unnatural appearance. Yellow-based products will make you look more natural.
Experiment with false eyelashes, usually available from most drugstores for about £3. False eyelashes will enhance natural Japanese, almond-shaped eyes and make the eyes appear more open, less tired and a lot bigger. Invest in a good pair, such as MAC lashes, so you will be able to wear them again and again.
In addition to knowing what make-up suits you, you should also know what hairstyles and products work best with Japanese hair. Japanese hair is traditionally thicker than Western hair, so it needs slightly different products. Do not colour the hair too much (such as blond); the hair will not react well and will look unnatural with Asian skin tones. Recommended hair care products include Pantene Pro-V, Terax or Cali Oliva Shampoo. These products are all light and contain natural ingredients, good for taming thicker, straighter Japanese hair.
