Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of makeup looks work best for Asian women?

The most suitable makeup look depends on individual facial features and skin tone. Asian women are very experimental with their makeup looks and East Asians seem to pull off most looks because of their pale skin and well-defined features. However, cosmetics play a key role here. A subtle eyeliner and a dewy non-makeup makeup look with nude to pinkish tones is the current fad in Asia, and it complements them brilliantly.

What are some common makeup mistakes that Asian women should avoid?

Since Asian women are experimental with makeup, one common mistake in their experiments could be using a lot of colors in a single look. While some people are gifted with features that can pull off anything, too many colors do not suit everyone. A heavily bronzed look with overdone lips also gives a jarring appearance. Skipping exfoliation can make the desired dewy makeup look flakey. And since many Asian countries have an active nightlife, coming home exhausted and going to bed without removing makeup can completely reverse the benefits of a detailed skin care routine.

What are some common beauty myths about Asian women that should be debunked?

The most common beauty myth about Asian women is that only people from East Asian countries are Asian and hence all women look similar, while in truth, Asia is home to a hot pot of ethnicities and there is no stereotype that can accurately define them. That misconception alone also ties Asian women to myths such as how they all have smooth, pale skin, and petite and slim bodies.

Why is it important to appreciate and recognize the inspiring beauty of Asian women?

 Asian women come from different backgrounds across South Asia and Southeast Asia and possess intelligence and sophistication that is informed by their culture. Talking of beauty as an art, Asian women come from cultures that are deeply sentimental, which inspires their unique sense of grace and beauty. Their stories can be inspiring and educational for the world. In addition, there is also the fact that a lot of Asians fall prey to racism outside of their home countries and awareness around a global concept, such as beauty, from their country, may help the world be more accepting and welcoming of their people.

How can Asian women empower themselves through beauty?

As the world warms up to Asian beauty traditions and modern-day practices, Asian women can find it in themselves to take pride in their cultural identity and philosophies. This will help them acknowledge themselves and embrace their own creativity in redefining beauty standards. Through the medium of beauty, a lot of Asian women can find a platform to tell their stories and reach out to like-minded people across the world.
