Struggling to find the best brand of makeup or way of applying it? Here’s a complete list of dos and don’ts for Asians… makeup-wise.

DON’T

  • Have too much blue/green eyeshadow
  • Choose an eyeshadow color that’s too dark
  • Wear false eyelashes that look too long and fake
  • Attempt to change the lightness or darkness of your skin tone with a completely different shade of foundation. It will end up looking like a mask.
  • Use a heap of glittery eyeshadow
  • Use tester lipsticks straight onto your lips. It’s unhygienic. Smudge some onto your fingers before applying
