Asian Eyeshadow Tutorial ft. MAC Pink Split

My first eyeshadow tutorial! This is a method I use most frequently (if not all the time) as I find that it works best for me when it comes to defining my crease.

Step 1. Start with a clean matte base by applying Urban Decay Primer Potion all over eyelids and up to the brow bone. Let dry (if need be).

Step 2. Pick up light-coloured eyeshadow (of your choice) using a soft fluffy brush (am using Sephora All Over Shadow Brush #22).

Step 3. Apply all over eyelids as a base colour and avoid the brow bone.

Step 4. Pick up darker shade using a dense blending brush (am using Sigma E25).

Step 5. Pat it on the outer V to create the shape that you want and gradually building the intensity. Blend colour using a circular buffing motion, touching only tips of bristles to the eyelids.

Step 6. To deepen the crease, take a darker shade using the same blending brush. I am using UD Jabberwocky from the Alice in Wonderland palette but any dark pigmented shade will do.

Step 7. Buff and blend into crease-line. You may find it easier to place the brush right at the socket of your eyes, then blend in a windshield-wiper motion.

Step 8. Line upper lash line + apply falsies. (Eeeeps. Sorry about the undried lash glue).

End result:

I had also lined the lower waterline with an eyeliner pencil and applied the pink shadow from Pink Split on the first half of the lower lashline, followed by Jabberwocky on the outer half to complete the look.

And finally…


I hope the tutorial is helpful, thank you for reading!
