Contouring the Asian Monolid with Smashbox Contour Palette

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been stolen.*

Yesterday's post I showed how the Smashbox Contour Palette can be used for shaping the eyes and creating a natural and minimalistic look.  Today I show another variation on my eyes which is more for the Asian monolid.

I know there are some of you out there with Asian monolids that want that minimal makeup look without having to wear heavy eyeliner.  After all, just the look of heavy eyeliner to make eyes bigger really is defeating the purpose. I see many who do this and it just looks like a strip of black electrical tape circling the eyes, thus making the eyes look smaller than without makeup.  What is needed is to create depth and shape with eyeshadows that render the colors of the natural skin tone and Smashbox Contour Palette ($45USD) is one of the best all in one palettes around for this.

The following shows how it can be done on Asian monolids.

  1. The outer corner of the eye is important.  This is where depth and shape is created.  Since the contour color is used, you can apply it from top outer lid to bottom outer lid. 
  2. See how it creates depth.
  3.  Only applied at the outer corner.
  4. Take the same color and smudge it on the bottom lashline to create some width.  Be careful not to smudge it to low or it will create the look of tiredness.  You just want it to create depth and open the eye.
  5. How it looks so far.
  6. Take the bronzer color and follow the orbital ridge or the bone that would create your crease.  Apply the color all over the lid also.  
  7. See how the bronzer color differentiates the different areas of the eye and the contour color still creates the depth.
  8. Take the highlighter color and apply on the inner corner of lid 
  9. And on browbone.
  10. A very minimal and natural look so far.  
  11. Apply a thin black liner on top lashline.
  12. Apply a bit of the bronzer powder on bottom lashline and brown eyeliner.

There you have the finished look which just enhances your natural eyes.
