Thanks to my parents, I was born with natural creases on both eyes. But after years of wearing contacts and eye makeup along with long hours of working on the computer and the inevitable aging process, my eyelids have become droopy over the years. When my eyes get tired, my natural creases sometimes go from a prominent line to a few folds – so not cool >.< !
To combat the problem, I started my search for the right eyelid tape. While researching, I found out that TONS of celebrities use eyelid tapes to enhance their beauty – even those who were born with natural creases! Here are a few:
Actress Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰) use eyelid tape to make her natural creases deeper and more even.
To complement the red Valentino Couture archive dress Anne Hathaway wore at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards last Sunday, makeup artist Kate Lee gave her “a thin black lined eye with a defined socket and a deep rose lip stain”.
At the 2011 Grammy Awards tonight, celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey gave Katy Perry an angelic, sparkly and ethereal “Disco Angel” look to go with her Armani Prive dress.
For years, girls in Asia have looked up to Taiwanese singer Elva Hsiao(蕭亞軒) for her sultry smoky eye makeup. Below is a video tutorial by Elva herself on how to nail a more wearable version of her signature look. The clip is in Chinese but I have transcribed it just for you guys. More after the jump!
