Color contacts, false lashes and fake double eyelids – Chinese young ladies’ transforming make-up

Alia | March 23rd, 2011 - 3:56 am

What is the most poping part on the face of a typical Chinese beauty in Westerners’ mind? Probably those black, slit and single-eyelid eyes. Do young ladies in China prefer their eyes that way? Absolutely no. In China, round catty eyes are the beauty standard, even better if coupled with colored eyeballs. And how are they going to achieve the transformation? Simple, color contacts to enhance the shining eyeballs, fake double eyelids to add layers and the final touch, false lashes to make eyes look bigger.

The trio earns the name of “miracle make-up” and is making an impact on not only the lives of women in China, but also the opposite sex. Many men now hold the notion that “don’t make any serous commitment until you see your girlfriend’s bare face.” In one of China’s hottest dating shows, “You are the one” (非诚勿扰), make-up free pictures of female contestants are among the top information male participants care about.

Below is a step by step tutorial showing how the ugly duckling becomes the beautiful swan.
