Question Fem!Ling Makeup Help?

So my sis plans to cosplay as the fem version of Ling Yao from Fullmetal Alchemist. The only problem is that I'm not too sure where to even begin on a look like that. I know it needs to look as natural as possible, but the eyes especially will give me trouble trying to pull off. I have to make my sis's huge eyes look more asian and that'll be a challenge.

Anyone have any comments/advice/suggestions they'd care to share? I'd greatly appreciate it!

Hello (again?). I would suggest looking up smokey cat eye makeup looks on YouTube. You can use browns/greys to keep the look natural, or use black for something more dramatic. The idea is to keep the intensity of the color close to lash line, which gradually fades up to the crease. Here's a good example of what I'm talking about. And here's another tutorial from Pixiwoo. I really love what they do...Hope these suggestions give some ideas!
