Asian Smokey Eyes

I’ve been going to this Korean restaurant in Hamilton, and in the restaurant they kept playing some sort of K-pop singers/bands performing on TV. Anyways, I was inspired by the singers from the various girl band to do this Asian smokey eyes look. I love how their skin looks absolutely flawless, with barely any contouring, and just a bit of blush.

Their smokey eyes are slightly winged, and the darker colors are mostly concentrated on the outer corner, since most of these girls don’t have a defined crease, like mine! Their eyeshadows are mostly on the lid, and on the outer half of the eyes, to elongate the eyes even more, creating a bigger eyes illusion.

For this look, I chose to pair it with a peachy lip, most of the girls in K-pop opt for a more pink or ombre pink lips. However, I prefer the peach lips especially with the warm bronze colors on the eyes. Warm tones on the eyes matched the warm tone on the lips to pull the look together.

I also wore a new foundation I recently bought (actually, exchanged for the Diorskin Nude Air). The new NARS weightless luminous foundation is pretty lovely, and I think I’ll do a review about it soon, hopefully next week! I think I might have found a new favorite foundation, guys!

Anyways, I apologize if the colors on my step-by-step pictures are a bit off (slightly cooler than real life) since I was trying out a new zoom lens. The full face pictures show the real colors, especially on the eyes. Pictures for the full face were taken using my usual lens, and with day light.
