Fashion is subjective, but people typically tend to look good in certain things and bad in others. For example, skin color is an important factor in determining what colors may look good on an individual or what type of makeup to wear. Here are the best fashion tips online for Asian Americans.
1. We Look Great in Red
As an Asian American woman, I find that I look pretty darn good in red, especially if I’ve just been sun-kissed and tan. Dark red hues are especially flattering, as are bright reds. Maybe it’s our skin color or our black hair, but something about red just makes us look that much better.
2. Don’t go overboard with the eyeliner
Asian Americans are obsessed with double-eyelids and single-eyelids and whether or not we have one or the other. In either case, women try to make up for smaller eyes by piling on the eyeliner. As someone who’s seen this many, many times, don’t go overboard with the eyeliner! Just like any other type of makeup, make sure you create a balance that accentuates your eyes, but not too much, so it looks natural.
Women love boots, but how do you find the right type for you? If you have long, slender legs, you’re essentially very lucky and can wear all kinds of boots. For the rest of us, try wearing mid-calf boots that accentuate your legs and make you look taller. Wedges are also great because they’re not as painful as high heels, but they subtly give you that extra height boost.
4. BB Cream
BB Cream, typically standing for Blemish Balm, is all the rage in Asia and for a good reason. The cream is thought to come from Germany where it was used as a healing cream for laser skin surgery. With powerful soothing and skin-regenerating properties, BB creams have been adopted for all kinds of skin uses that caters to almost any skin problem, including acne, brightening, and anti-wrinkle. Use this instead of your usual concealer and see what works for you best.
5. For the Boys
Avoid putting too much gel in your hair, you look like Vegeta and no one is into that. Instead, opt for a more natural look (try using Gatsby).
Asian Americans have a unique place in American society. They have a unique culture that has yet to be fully explored, and they have an important voice in the fashion world. Designers such as Alexander Wang, Doo-Ri Chung, Prabal Gurung, and Vera Wang have all paved the way in the fashion world for Asian Americans, but they have yet to create “Asian American Fashion” or instill their Asian American culture into their works. Websites such as adstalker.com gives advice about the lifestyle of an Asian American and their culture, which makes a great inspiration for fashion. Nowadays, distinct Asian American fashion is rising, due to the integration of both authentic Asian culture and American culture.
