I am NOT a makeup person at all so when I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to get a Asian m/u artist for our wedding I googled and Youtubed.

There are lots of tutorials out there.

I can tell you what I’ve heard is the biggest peeve of Asian girls with non Asian make up artists? Thinking that we need that wing tip eyeliner technique because we have narrow eyes or no eye lids.
Or the overuse of blush on our cheeks.

My Maid/Matron of Honor went to a american salon for her hair & makeup on her wedding day. She hated it. They basically made her look like a buffoon. She ended up redoing her hair and removed all her makeup and did it herself.

@msw77:

Oh yes! My m/u artist put double fake lashes on mine and it was fantastic!

Haha.  That was mother’s warning:  Make sure you hire someone Asian to do your hair and makeup!

Oh, the bad haircuts I used to endure.

Anywho, you first need to figure out the skintone of your friend.  I find that I can’t wear pinktoned makeup, because it ends up making me look very odd.  I tend to stick with gold and bronzes.

Perhaps the two of you could go to a makeup counter like MAC and ask for tips that way?

I’m Asian and this is what I ended up doing for every day AND special occassion make up…

Go to a make up counter at a department store (I use Mac, their pigments seem to blend REALLY well with my skin), and just have someone walk you through EVERYTHING. I went on a weekday, ended up buying about $40 of product, but walked out with a TON of tips, down to how to put false lashes in, how to blend colors etc. It’s a little time consuming, but I’m the kind of person that is a visual learner, and I think my makeup for our e-pics was GREAT, and I did it myself at 5AM!

@GreenEyedMoon: For me, and I never really noticed this until my mu trail.. .is that if I line the entire bottom of my eye uniformly, it made my eyes look smaller.  It was better to line just the outter half a bit more if you want a more dramatic look, and then make sure its not as thick on the inner half.

oh! it looks like she actually has a lot of eyelid space for an asian girl, so i would say that a lot of non-asian specific techniques could work well on her too. also, i totally agree with pinkshoes about not lining your entire bottom lid.
