An Asian Girl's Best Friends...

If you're an Asian chick, go out and get this stuff STAT!
The Sephora Brand Professionnel Platinum Angled Eyeliner Brush #23 ($17) is one of my favorite liner brushes. I usually hold a mirror with one hand when I do my makeup and it's hard to tight-line using this method. I need to open my eye, pull the lid up wtih one hand and apply as close to the lash line as possible with the other. This brush makes one-handed lining so much easier. The bent tip can easily navigate to the smallest spaces between your lashes. I love the soft pointed tip and the angled ferrule lets you see what you're doing.

Face Candy Grade: A+
I LOVE MAC Fluidline Gel Eye Liner ($15). It's hard to find a liner that won't smudge or disappear on my folded Asian eyes. This one lasts all day long. I use Blacktrack.

This brings me to the Shu Uemura Mini Eyelash Curler ($17). Everyone and their mother uses the regular Shu curler, but this tiny one allows you to re-curl the lashes that that one misses. On stubborn straight Asian lashes, I absolutely MUST go back in and re-curl lashes across my entire eye after curling with the regular one. Try it and you'll be hooked. I don't know how I lived without it before.

Face Candy Grade: A+

Thanks for sharing these! I have Asian eye syndrome as well ;) Thought about putting on fake eyelashes, but it looks so unnatural.

Another liquid eyeliner that doesn't smudge and is good for asian girls is Tarte's liquid eyeliner. it's got a pointed felt tip eyeliner, and won't smudge. it's pretty good priced at 25.00
