First off I wanna tell you that I absolutely LOVE your blog and all the beauty tips u blog about. It really gives me so many ideas because I always felt limited with make-up choices because of my darkskin but now I'm starting to embrace all my features. :) so i wanted to ask your advice on making my asiatic eyes pop? Also I wanted to know if u had any blush recommendations besides torrid (love it btw) Thanks in advance!

First off, thanks for the follow and the support, I really appreciate it!!!! I truly believe that dark skin is a gift because we can pull off some looks that so many others can’t. I do understand feeling limited, years ago when i first got into makeup I felt lost and it seemed like nobody could help me pull off all the hot looks I wanted.  Well I am happy to pass some knowledge to a sexy deep colored girl!!!!! 

I believe highlighting is one of the things that helps eyes pop the most. My eyes are a bit smaller then I would like so I understand. I use MAC Pure Pigment in Vanilla right in the inner corner of my eye by the nose, it will work wonders. Lining the top lid with a black eyeliner, but not the bottom and using an amazing mascara works also. MAC’s Haute and Naughty will give you dramatic Kim Kardashian Lashes or you could try some of Maybelline’s mascaras if you are hard up for cash. I also say keep eyebrows filled in and neat, this creates a good structure to the face. 

Blush recommendations:

  • Dolce Vita by NARS
  • Taj Mahal by NARS
  • Palm Beach Multiple by Nars(this stuff is great as a bronzer and highlighter) 
  • G Spot Multiple by NARS
  • Love Joy Mineralize Blush by MAC
  • Raisin Powder Blush by MAC
  • Exhibit A by NARS (very intense so apply lightly, but is so hot when done right)

I like to take a cream bronzer or deep bronze tone and place it on the cheek bones and then take powder blush and place it on top, don’t be too heavy handed though. Trust me, this will look so amazing!!!! 

Palm Beach is the best cream bronze shade, and you can almost place any color on top and it will warm the skin. Just remember that you want the skin to look warm, not rosy, because our cheeks don’t get rosy, it will look unnatural. 

So I hope I gave you some tips you can use. If you need anything else let me know. Feel free to comment on my post and let me know what you like and don’t like. Video tutorials will be coming soon, so stay tuned. Love ya!!!!
