Most East Asians have monolid or hooded eyes while some are blessed to have parallel or tapered eyelids. When I said eyelids, I mean that crease above the eyes where the eyeshadow goes on.
b. Creased eyelid
c. Non-continuous tapered eyelid
d. Partial tapered eyelid
e. Multiple creased eyelid
f. Wide end tapered eyelid
g. Parallel eyelid
h. Caucasian eyelid crease.
I know it sounds silly that women have so many things to be self conscious about and now even the tiniest bit, the eyelids, get that sort of attention too. In Asia, it's big business. Women would get plastic surgery to get it corrected. I'm too scared of going under the knife so here we are — reviewing eyelid tapes.
During my bridal photo shoot, my make up artist gave me this strip of lace for the eyelids and they look so natural and amazing I have been trying to find them. Guess what? I did.
What I like about it:
- I don't feel it at all, compared to the regular beauty tape which I sometimes can feel or tell when I open my eyes. Lightweight claim, check.
- It is harder to see it for sure. Invisible claim, pretty darn close. I guess that's the same as no glare too.
- I have been wearing them all day, in the hot 96°F weather and sweating, it is still there. Whereas the regular Beauty Tape, if I sweat too much and I wipe my sweat, it could come off if I'm not careful. Durable claim, check.
- I feel like there are too many steps! The tape was basically cut and stick. But maybe if I get used to it I would not feel the hassle.
- It costs more than the regular Beauty Tape.
- The eyelid glue. There was not a lot to it. But you could get regular eyelid glue and it'd work fine. I have a tube of a better brand anyway.
Yea, I like it. Would I use it again and repurchase it? Yea, I would.
