Making American Eyes Look Asian?

I have very large, round eyes... And am wondering some techniques with makeup (mainly eye liner) to make them look more almond-shaped.

Here are some photos of my eyes (no makeup):

Not that the photos will help much, but just in case. ^__^;;

Thanks!

I found this on Google, but it IS Yahoo answers, which isn't that reliable...

Em...you should change the title to "Making non-East Asian eyes Look East Asian." I know you didn't mean to offend anyone, but it makes it seem as though there are no Asian Americans. XD

Sorry, I didn't mean to offend at all! ^__^;;

I don't know how to edit titles--I tried to edit the first post and it wouldn't let me touch the title...

I looked through the other thread, etc., and other than a little eyeliner on the lower lid and lighter shadow there wasn't any real big techniques... The glue idea didn't seem to work (for round eyes -> almond).

And, if it makes a difference... I'm aiming for Japanese-looking eyes. (In case someone for some reason knew how to achieve Chinese or Korean, LOL. I do think they look different.)

I'd like to jump onto this topic too!

I failed a crazy dare cuz I couldn't get my eyes "asian" enough and for some odd reason I'm gunna cosplay asuka hinoi in the future *crazy*

but is there anything more in depth or like a picture tutorial for creating the "asian eye" effect? I'm a bit of a visual learner and descriptions alone leave me a bit clueless.

(and posting on this thread and not the other cuz this one is already near the top...sorriessss *hides*)

*Pat pat* I know I don't mind you posting on my thread, ha ha.

I also would like a picture tutorial. I know what you mean about feeling clueless after just reading something. Especially when it comes to makeup (I know some things, but I don't wear makeup all the time to know everything).

I think it'd be good to have anyway because a lot of people cosplay more Asian-looking characters. =)

A lot of the info on the other thread wasn't very... Helpful. They never really came to any conclusions.

I pull it off with eyeliner, personally. You just have to use it dark enough and manage the shadow well, and any eyes can look completely different in photos or in person.

There are products you can buy to actually pull the skin on your face towards the back of your head that might actually help. I'm not sure. Ive never seen it used for that purpose. It's usually used to obtain cheekbones I think. I highly recommend going to your local library and looking up Kevyn Aucoin and checking out some of his books. He could change anybody into anybody else.

Thanks for the advice, also.

Makeup tips would be a huge help as it'd be less complicated than trying to tape something. Also, if anyone knows how to do anything and wants to put together a step-by-step photo analysis, that'd be awesome.

This has video tips for Asian eyes (such as gluing the lid to make a crease) and the eyeliner technique in the one video can help for ideas on making eyes more Asian.

hm, well for me to hide my crease...
I use white eyeliner on my crease, and then I rub it in a bit, and apply it once again.
It works for me and it does hide my crease... XD
dunno if that's what you wanted though chuu~

That's very helpful, thank you. That is the type of advice I was looking for!

Just yesterday I noticed my white eyeliner in my makeup drawer and was like, "What am I ever going to use this for?" Well, now I know!
