Watch This Eye Makeup Tutorial For Monolids

Being Asian means my eyelids have no defined crease, which makes standard eye makeup application tips not really applicable. Luckily, makeup artist Sierra Min showed me her tips to mastering a daytime smoky eye look using shades of brown. "For Asian eyes, it's all about creating shapes and dimensions," she explains. In the Instagram video above, you can watch Min shade and shape my eyes. Here are the steps to re-create the look:

1. Apply a shimmering taupe shade all over the lid, from the lash line to the socket. Make sure to blend with your fingers or a brush to smooth out the edges. We used Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow in 20E ($20).

2. Use a dark brown pencil like MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy ($16) from the lash line to just above your eyes when open. This will help to shape your eyes and open them up. Make sure to blend into the the lighter taupe shade to create a subtle gradient.

3. Enhance the color of the brown pencil with a similar color eyeshadow. Focus it near your lash line to build more depth and to help set the pencil.

4. Add black eyeliner, like Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Caviar ($25), right along your lash line to add definition. You can build up the thickness of the line to also help manipulate the shape of your eye, too.

5. To help enhance your eye shape, add liner just to the outer corner of your eyes.

6. Make sure to open up your eyes with an eyelash curler, and set with a waterproof mascara. The fast-drying waterproof formulas help to hold the curl over standard mascara. We used Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara ($30).
