Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Angelababy

Hong Kong model Angelababy has taken over Asia by storm! She has appeared in numerous fashion magazines, on the runway, and guess what? She is only 19 – you go girl!

Angelababy Makeup Tutorial

When it comes to makeup, Angelababy loves playing up her eyes and leaving the rest of her face as simple as possible. To achieve her look, here are a few tips by the supermodel herself:

* Circle/Color Contact Lenses in Brown/Black to give you instant doll eyes.
* False Lashes on top and lots of black mascara on the bottom.
* Lots and lots of eyeliner on both the top and bottom to open up your peepers.
* Highlight your features by putting shimmer on the inner corners of yours eyes and along the bridge of your nose. Contour by applying a darker color along your cheekbones in a circular motion.

  1. She’s beautiful
    Does anyone know if she had the eyelid surgery?
    She also looks a lot like Dawn Yang (sorry if I spelled her name incorrectly)

  2. No, I don’t think she had eyelid surgery. It’s natural. She was a model since she was 14 you can google her.

  3. Dawn Yang? WTH?!! Dawn Yang isn’t natural. How could anyone compare Angela to Dawn Yang? Angela Baby is a 10 Dawn Yang is a __.

  4. I don’t really know much about dawn yang except that i’ve seen her pictures and she is just as gorgeous as angela baby

  5. Personally I think Angela Baby is prettier and I highly doubt she had surgery either – she still has the same eyes and nose.

    Dawn Yang is gorgeous too but if you have seen pictures of her prior to the surgery, you will know she’s all plastic.

    Oh and don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with surgery. I mean just go with whatever floats your boat. Just make sure you realize what you are getting yourself into because it is not reversible.

  6. Plastic surgery is fine but don’t overdo it. Dawn Yang when not posing and widening her eyes – she looks very unnatural: Check it out for yourself: (cut and paste each together with no space in between) http://x67.xanga.com/

    Dawn can’t really smile or move her nose. As for plastic surgery nothing wrong with it – just make sure you do your research before you go because even people that are rich and have the money to afford the best doctors still end up with botch jobs: http://awfulplasticsurgery.com/

    Hey Phyllis have you heard of Janice Man? I think Angela and her are friends. They look like sisters. Do you know much about her:
    http://www.xanga.com/Janice_M

  7. Yah I’ve heard of Janice Man and she’s *absolutely* gorgeous too! I will be doing a breakdown of her shortly =)

  8. Hi,

    Thank you for the breakdown. I’ve always liked Angela.
    I realized that dawn yang’s features are stiff all the time and its obvious that she went through a lot of surgery=(
    I can’t wait for the breakdown of Janice=)

  9. Wow, I just checked out the link you posted. She’s still pretty but I notice what you mean… you’re right… in almost every picture she has the same look… not as natural and diverse as Angela.What I love about Angela… she looks different in many pictures.. she captures different types of beauty in each one. I questioned that Dawn girl before but I had no idea and I’ve never seen her before pictures.

    As for the surgery, my mom and I discussed it. My eyes have always been a problem for me since I was 14. I wear false lashes now (sephora……..pretty good stuff) and eyelid glue and it takes about 15 minutes every morning. I’m 21 years old now but when I was in highschool .. the routine would take forever (an hour somtimes). With more years and a lot of practice… instead of people asking if I’m wearing fake lashes, they ask what mascara I wear. So these days, I feel comfortable only because people don’t notice but summer is coming up… and I noticed wearing eyelid glue in the summer is a big NO… glue melts aha. Anyways, I am rambling… but everyone in my family has a double eyelid except for me (I inherited it from my grandmother), I never had a problem with it until several people, sometimes strangers would come up to me and say “omg, are you sad?” “you look really upset” or “are you sleepy”… I would always laugh and say “oh that’s just how my eyes are” I’m tired of it… I’m thinking of getting surgery from this famous surgeon in the Philippines name Vicki Bello… they always mention her on television. Any thoughts? I’m sorry for this essay I’ve just written.

  10. She’s so pretty! Looks a LOT like you, ..you’re so beautiful ! I love your looks :).

    I’m the only one in my family who doesn’t have double eyelids too. I heard that eyelid glue makes them saggier/stretchier though, is that true for you? And have you ever heard of Mezaik Fibre strips? I want to try them. .. but I’m not sure which would be better.

  11. Wow you’re going to do a break down on Janice too? That’s cool but I always get confused with Janice and Angela because they look so similar! Especially in their photos together!

    I was wondering if you’ve seen this girl before… her name is Grace and she’s so pretty with and without makeup could you do a break down on her look?

    this other model jaly is also very pretty, she kinda looks like mika nakashima is some of her pics ~

  12. I love love love the second picture, blue is doing it this season!

    Will you do a tutorial on the look? I have a gorgeous matte blue NARS shadow pretty similar to hers but I’ve been having a hard time getting to look like that.

    Thanks in advance

  13. Yeah the eyelid glue did make them stretchier and saggier but I have to admit, it did help create a crease on my eyelids over time but the problem is… we’re not born surgeons so even if the glues helps build a crease gradually… it doesn’t mean it’ll match the other eyelid. That’s my problem now. I really need this surgery, I can’t take it anymore. I hate that I feel this way… it’s really selfish of me.

  14. I thought janice man looks like that receptionist girl on “ugly betty”. actually her lips are what reminded me of her. especially on the banner/header of her blog.

    angela baby looks like some other celeb too, i just cant quite put who it is.

  15. i personally think janice and angelababy look really pretty too. but im pretty sure its not all real and that they’ve gotten plastic surgery. :(

  16. Hey Phyllis, love the blog! Do you think you could do a celebrity breakdown of Go Ara? She’s so gorgeous! Thanks alot.

  17. There is actually a rumor in Hong Kong right now that Janice and Angela did undergo plastic surgery. I think it’s true…if you look back at Janice’s pictures before she was famous, her nose will look more broad than it is now and she had a little bump in her bridge. And Angela’s nose looks straighter now in recent pictures.

  18. Dawn Yang may have had some surgeries, but she’s real gorgeous in real life. Fake but gd-looing U can go read some entries from bloggers who’ve seen her.

    Angela is very hot and pretty too, i think she’s got diverse pictures because they’re modelling shots. DUH. Unfortunately all these beauties are fake, the 1/4 german thing is not true either as exposed on some hk forums.

    Angela’s pre surgery pics:

    cut eyes, refined nose, chin implant, collagen injections.

  19. wow we sure got some interesting comments going on here *lol*

    Yes I’ve seen the pics of Angelababy before her so-called surgery but I still stand by my theory – that she just grew up, lost the baby fat and finally learnt how to do her makeup properly.

    According to my very reliable source, Angelababy actually went to Japan for a few years to study makeup which explains why she looks like those Japanese mixed models from Vivi. I’ve also seen a lot more pictures of her when she’s still wearing braces

    http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y27/angelababyct/angela/IMGP8060.jpg

    and I don’t think they look THAT different from the pictures of her now without the heavy liner and false lashes

    http://x18.xanga.com/740c80f030235195984925/w151402366.jpg

    Like what one of the anon posts above said, I just think she has a very versatile look. You can easily fake deep-set eyes and a straighter nose and look mixed with the right makeup.

  20. I’ve been searching for circle fcontact lens in london.
    Does anyone know where i can get them in london ..??
    please pleasseee

  21. I know this post is super old, and I’m not that familiar with Asian models/bloggers/oh-screw-it-how-about-celebrities, but hey guys, this Angela girl is 1/4 German! It’s not that far of a stretch for her to have more Caucasian features. I mean that foreign blood is a sneaky bugger. Once it’s in, it STAYS! I have a multiracial friend and she and her sibling are so diverse looking – there’s both ends of the spectrum and everything in between. And don’t get me started when you have two biracial parents make a baby. I remember reading reports of one such couple in London – their precious twin darlings were either fully white looking, and fully black looking.

    I have strayed too long and too far from this topic, but fear not Angela’s getting paid to look pretty and that’s all that matters.

  22. Even her so called 'pictures before the surgery' still looks pretty, maybe the one with black background is not :P but I do trust that's only because the wrong hair & eye color. Her nose is still the same though. :)

    Besides, looking back at her blog, and pictures of her, she's not afraid to smile widely, grin and making faces naturally.

  23. it’s so exciting to finally find decent female models from hong kong. i love angela’s look because like you said, she keeps it simple but her eyes prove that she’s still creative and imaginative and bold in her statement. :)

    haha not to mention i love her style wardrobe. :D

  24. phyllis!! u mentioned something about her learning to do her makeup better to look like Vivi models. i wonder what they do? do u have an idea? i t would be nice if you had a blog about it =)

    p.s . supposedly her being 1/4 german is a rumor

  25. She’s got we call a parallel eyelid skin crease which is commoner in Orientals of mixed origin. Hence that’s why she looks like she’s had something done. It’s not that difficult to recreate using surgery but you need a decent surgeon preferably an oculoplastic surgon who has an asian blepharoplasty interest and respects ethnicity preservation.

  26. you can tell that angelababy has a bit of mix, like cecila
    i still think she is 100% natural
    ive seen them both in real life before in hk @ mk they are both very skinny girls. janice looks like she puts too much powder on but angelababy looks amazingly pretty

  27. I don’t know what the big fuss is about Angela Baby and Janice Man. Honestly, I’ve seen many Hapa girls in Hawaii that are a LOT more beautiful that either of these two!

    The Japanese prize childish beauty above all things, rather than real womanly beauty (do we really need the circle contacts?!?)

    Being Hapa myself, I’d rather look like a real woman than cutesy-poo.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

  28. There is no doubt angelababy is pretty but if you do a little research her on her you’ll realize she has indeed had plastic surgery.

    The differences between before and after are so great there is no makeup in the world that can create these differences.
    It has been confirmed her being 1/4 german is a complete lie. She said she was mix to make herself more famous and cover up for all the cosmetic surgery she has received to make herself appear mix.
    She has had her nose done, her eyes have been cut to make them larger and had other surgeries to enhance her features.
    It is rather misleading for everyone to believe she is a natural beauty when clearly she has gone under the knife to achieve this “beauty”.

  29. Angela baby is 1/4 german. She is was young, she look very much like a white girl than an asian girl. As she age she looked more asian. If she did do plastic surgeries, it would be very little. I think she got a chin implant and that is about it. She was born with really big eyes and a very tall nose bridge and her nose was never big either.

  30. yes angela is pretty.,

    but dawn looks more interesting and different.
    i want to see her in real life.

    as for angela, i see people that look prettier everyday.

  31. jeez. another fake barbie. alot of celebs do plastic these days but angelababy seems to have done too much (ditto dawn yang)

  32. She’s had loads of surgery though, so the only way any average Asian is going to look as good is not through just make-up, but having the same surgical procedures done as well!

  33. David,

    Parallel creases are not even common in Eurasians. Most still have the epicanthal fold unless their Asian parent already had strong European ancestry. For example, a Filipino who has Spanish ancestry who then marries a white man will probably have a child who has a parallel crease. What is known as a “true” Filipino (only has Asian bloodlines, no Hispanic lineage) will have children that resemble the rest of Eurasians – epicanthal fold.

    White genes are the weakest. They almost always get bred out by Asian or black genes, hence why most Eurasians are still very Asian looking.

  34. SURGERY can really do wonders… its v obvious tt her eyes became LAGGER while her mouth become SMALLER… Her facial features look PERFECT.

    Without plactic surgeries even if one is a natural beauty there are bound to have some flaws on their facial features unlike ppl like janice man , dawn yang n angela baby they look like a doll which is rather FAKE.

    Of course, I salute to them for having the courage to go under the knife.

  35. It’s sad that people all her a goddess in asia..when her beauty is just fake and paid for… -sigh-
    plus it would be hard to get bigger eyes when human beings, our eyes get smaller as we grow older…look at how big babies’ eyes are and how they get smaller

    her mouth got so much smaller, she got braces, she has a nose bridge now..angelababy is a fake
