The Illusion of Depth on Asian Monolid Eyes

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

Okay, so you saw how the illusion of lift on hooded eyes and Asian eyes.  Now, some of you are probably saying, "My eyes aren't like Maggie Q's.  They are monolid."  Don't worry, the rules or guides are pretty much the same as you will see.

The following eyes belong to the beautiful Korean American actress Hettienne Park.  She currently is starring in Hannibal as a forensic pathologist.

Hetienne has the monolid eyes or eyes where the lid creases under.

The illusion for lifting or opening up Asian monolid eyes are the same for any other eye shape; the orbital ridge is emphasized and much higher than you would normally think.

I apologize for not having sharper pictures of Hetienne's eyes but it was the best I could do with the resources available. 

In this first picture, the green arrow points to the eyeliner.  I know it is hard to see clearly but notice how the eyeliner lifts up towards the end.  It isn't a complete winged eyeliner but is the start of one if the end look was to be.  As I showed in the winged eyeliner post, winged eyeliner lifts away from the lashline.  Here, this is the norm for eyeliner to create a lift. 

Asian Monolids Can Look Larger

Check out the red line.  This is where the orbital ridge line is emphasized.

Asian Monolids Do Have an Orbital Ridge

The eyes do not look small or heavy lidded.  They just look defined.

I hope this has helped some of you with Asian monolids.  Any questions or comments, just leave them below.
