Has anyone used makeup and/or prosthetics to give yourself epicanthic folds? Or hide them?
>>
I buy the packs of eyelid fold tape for like $10 for 100 strips that last forever. They work well as long as you don't have any makeup or lotion on your eyelid before you apply.

Though I'm wondering why white people who have folds try to use this stuff and get surprised when nothing happens????
>>
>>10192617
For some white people they work and make the eye seem bigger, my friend has droopy eyelids and they open more when she has eyelid tape
>>
>>10192673
This is what I have to do. Fucking super hooded eyes. Even losing weight isn't helping.
>>
>>10192617
fuck me because my eyelid hood is so fat that eyelid fold tape don't work.

can't wait to get surgery
>>
>>10192727
Why not use tape and eyelid glue in tandem?
>>
Are there any good tutorials for white people on eye shape and how to use things like eyelid tape to manipulate it?
>>
>>10194155
I'll give it a try this week!
>>
i get called chinita/hapa cuz of my eyes lol, they aren’t epicanthic folds tho. why would you want them though, not saying they’re bad but do yall expect them to get bigger like ugu kawaii asian girls? cuz that’s mostly from circle lenses
>>
>>10195121
from me personally-- my fucking fat fold literally push my eyelashes s.t. they point downwards. no amount of eyelash curling/mascara will fix this. Often any falsies i wear will be pushed downwards too. only exception is if the band is strong enough to lift the fat.

also from my experiences with wearing tape/glue, it makes my eyes look more awake instead of droopy.
>>
>>10195156
Same here. I have to widen my eyes for photos but then it makes my expression look dumb. I spent forever thinking it was just the expressions I made at cameras but standing in front of a mirror examining my eye size and comparing it to most other people, the lid comes down over the Iris enough that I look tired, and circle lenses don't help. Eyeliner makes my eyes look thinner instead of bigger.

I've lost weight but you can't really change the shape there once the damage is done. Surgery or I hope at least eye tape will help.

Next time, for eyeliner, try a brown shadow a couple shades lighter and softer than your natural hair color.
Use it to line just the top from just at the center to the corner.
Swoop to make a wing, use a highlight in the center, blend.
Other colors as desired.
Use a medium brown for extending the shadow of the corner to a forth to a third of your lower lashes.
Only use light colors from the center to the bridge of your nose, crease can be whatever best suites your skin,and eye color and tastes.
>>
>>10195121
eyelids do give an appearance of a larger, more awake eye, and also gives space to put on eyeshadow/eyeliner which can again make the eye look bigger
>>
>>10192673
I have a slightly droopy right eye for some reason and occasionally I use eyelid tape to make my eyelids symmetrical.
>>
>>10192615
You gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em
>>
>>10196533
First I have to mark the end of the wing with a dot, lift the corner of the skin around and above my eye, calculate the sag, and draw from the corner of my eye to the end of the mark, and pray it comes out as a wing and not some ugly disjointed mark.

I've tried the brown, and it helps. I appreciate the advice. Sadly many tutorials for anime makeup (I'm a cosplayer) don't take into account that you can't pull off neat eyeliner tricks like this.

Eyeshadow just disappears in my eyelid as once I open my eye, the fold covers it.

Definitely need surgery but until then I'll do what I can.

>>10192615
Womyn stop hating yourself ffs...now, do i need latex for prosthetics?
Ill try to cosplay as Shyliew from one piece
>>
>>10192690
Why would you think that losing weight would affect the shape of your eyes??
>>
>>10204568
Because that's where some fat accumulates to begin with. Look at how hooded many fat people's eyes get. But the loose skin there won't just disappear after you lose the weight. Sometimes it sags even more.
>>
>>10204568
not that anon but not so much the shape of the eye, but the way the fat around the brows can make the eye look.
when i was a teen, i was on the heavier side and my fat distribution was really unfortunate on my face so my brows did puff up and kind of came down and covered portions of my eyes. i'm not fat anymore, my brows are back to normal and yeah my eyes aren't as hooded as they were before.
ofc that varies from person to person, so i'm guessing anon has similar fat distribution on the face to me.
>>
>>10204563
Can you even spell correctly? And who the f is that from One Piece? Latex is both an adhesive and can be used to make prosthetics, up to you if you think you need it for a cosplay. I use it for the shape of my Luffy scar when most people just draw it, but you have to be trolling.

I'd like to be able to put defining makeup around my eyes for my cosplays, and not have it lost in the skin, thanks. That is what makes me happy.

Interesting thread
>>
holy shit I'm so glad I'm not Asian
imagine hating yourselves this much
>>
>>10214641
This
>>
>>10192690
How tf do you do it? I have extremely hooded eyes, I can barely do eye makeup and cant get glue/tape to work for shit
>>
>>10214641

Wow people of other races never hate themselves.
>>
>>10215739
I can almost bet that other races don't go to the extremes that Asians do to look almost unrecognizable.
>>
>>10217226

Yeah, that's why plastic surgery is never lucrative in countries other than those in Asia. You starve in the US if you're a plastic surgeon.
>>
>>10217255
Easy there, Seo-joon.
>>
>>10215739
I'm White and every other race tries to look like me, so no.
>>
>>10217297

>2nd through 5th places are not Asian countries and are competing closely with S Korea

Really proves your point there
>>
>>10217299

Thank you for proving my point.
>>
>>10217303
Sure, I'll concede to that. Every single White person is glad to be White.
>>
>>10217308

Yes, it must be a blessing to be white.
>>
>>10217312
I can't tell if this is Sarah Jessica Parker or Steve Tyler.

Don't drink and tan, kids.
>>
>>10217255
You have a weird definition of what starving is.
