Guide to what a monolid is, and how to apply makeup if you're in between




Every now and then, I get people telling me my makeup tips for monolids don't work for them at all, and a lot of times, it's because they don't have monolids at all. There's this misconception that all Asian eyes are monolids, and while usually only Asians have monolids, not all Asian eyes are monolids. 

So what are monolids? Here's some pictures that may help!

"I don't have a monolid, but my crease is super tiny! What do I do?"


This is usually the most common makeup help request I get. If you have a tiny crease, there's several ways you can do makeup, and it depends on the size of your crease. If your crease is super tiny, it's best to go with:

Treat the crease as a space to be filled up with liner, fill it up, and use the monolid make up trick of just applying everything higher



Examples:

This is also very helpful for monolid girls who suddenly get creases in only one eye on certain days. This is a pic of me with a monolid on one eye, and a crease on the other eye. With this trick, it's not that obvious that my eyes are different when I open them, but when I look down or close them, it's a bit more obvious.



If you have a larger crease, this is another trick you can use...

Treat the crease like a regular crease, and just do everything "flatter". The eye look will look more like a "pancake"/"mochi" rather than a "half-moon" when you close your eyes, but it'll still be pretty!
