Hello Beautifuls!

After working with different clients from different ethnic backgrounds , I've come to kind of notice a difference between the preferred makeup styles of oriental Asians versus north Americans. Of course, this is just a personal opinion. Many others may have a different take on it than I do!

I've came to notice that oriental Asians prefer a softer, more natural and innocent look that uses subtle makeup and with an emphasis on clear skin. Eyebrows are kept with a minimal arc, with a greater emphasis on the "straight brow" trend. Blush and shadows are kept to a minimum, and the liner is more thin, and lines closely with lash line. Lips are also kept a natural shade with more peachy/pink/coral tones. On the other hand, north Americans prefer a more "sexy" or bold look with arched eyebrows, coated mascara, thicker liners, darker shadows, more contour, and a fuller lip. Both styles are totally unique in their own ways! I personally prefer minimal makeup as I don't usually wear any on a daily basis. After all, at the end of the day your makeup needs to come off. Embrace yourselves, cause your natural beauty is best!

That's it for now!
 PS: Which style do you prefer?
