Ladies who lack folds on their eyelids often look for ways to accentuate their peepers. Often a problem among Asian women, eyelids without folds present some challenges when it comes to makeup application. However, all is not lost if you want to make your eyes look super radiant by using makeup; there are techniques you can employ to help your makeup appear more noticeable and your eyes sparkle and shine.
1. Cover your lid with a neutral color, such as taupe or beige. This soft color makes your eyes appear larger and provides the perfect background for your exotic eyes.
2. Use an angled brush dipped in dark eyeshadow or a black eyeliner pencil to draw a line along your upper lashes. Start at the inner corner of your eye and work your way towards the outer corner. Make the line slightly thicker and taller in the center of your lid to create the illusion of a larger eye. Draw a line along your lower lashes and stop when you get to the center of your eye. If you go completely around you’ll have a dramatic look, but your eyes will look smaller.
3. Apply a dot of white or pale and shimmery eyeshadow to the inside corners of your eyes. Doing so makes them look brighter.
4. Insert your lashes into an eyelash curler so that they look luscious and glamorous. Cover them with two coats of mascara to make your eyes look dramatic and open. Sweep the bottom lashes with the wand and your eyes should look subtle, yet noticeable.

Tips & Tricks
To add a bit of drama to your eyes, try using a few different shades of eyeshadow. Find three different shades of the same color, and apply the darkest just above your lashes. Sweep the second darkest color above that on your lid, then the lightest color along your brow bone. Implement the eyeliner and mascara in the same manner as listed above. This technique leaves your eyes looking bold and makes them stand out.
