Change (or alter) your hair. This (aside from eyes) is the most obvious change. Go to Target, WalMart, or a CVS/Rite Aid/Any Pharmacy Near You and buy a straightening iron and a bottle of hair color. Do your hair then straighten it. You will look dramatically more Asian. You don't have to dye your hair black, Kyo, for example has red hair, and a lot of Asian woman (and men) dye their hair a color besides black (or dark brown). It could make it a little more obvious that you're not Asian if you dye your hair black (or dark brown).
Change your eye color. If you have blue or green eyes, you will need to get contact lenses that are brown. Depending on where you live, this may or may not be a pain in the rear end. Some states require that you go through this whole involved process before you get lenses. In other states, you just roll up on an eyeglass place and can get colored, non-prescription lenses in an hour. Still, if you want to look convincing, get contacts. NOTE: If at all possible, skip this step. Seriously. If your eyes are hazel, don't bother, they're near brown. And if your eyes are very, very dark blue, you can also probably avoid the whole expensive mess of contact lenses. Also, if you're like me and can't put contacts in for the life of you, remember that some Asians wear colored contacts, and it could also be more obvious that you're pretending if you have the eye color and hair color.
Get your eyebrows waxed. This is VERY important. Even guys should swallow their pride and do this. Waxing will create the illusion of there being more space between your eye and your eyebrow; this is a common characteristic in Asian faces. Stylists also have ways of shaping the brow that can make the eye appear more slanted, or smaller. Also, importantly, many Asian women wear their eyebrows very thin.
Get a big bottle of foundation that is AT LEAST a shade lighter than your natural skin tone. Put foundation on your cheekbones, and on the tip of your nose and your nostrils. BLEND the edges of the foundation, so that you look more natural. Then, put blush directly under your cheekbones. This will contour your face, and you will look like you have a wider nose, and more Asian bone structure. You can also use foundation to cover up freckles, which are very non-Asian looking.
Work on your eyes. Use eyeshadow or eyeliner to give your eyes a more Asian appearance.Make your eye shape more Asian by taking black eyeshadow or brow powder in black, charcoal grey or very dark brown, and extend a very small line under your tear duct. It should look like an extension to the natural curve of the eyelid, and should be no longer than 3 mm. Thinly line the rest of your eyes staying on the lashline, and giving it a slight wing upwards on the other side. When done properly, it looks like your eye is slightly folded towards the corner, and when combined with a faint wing on the other side of your lid, your eyes will appear very Asian.
- Note: it must be liquid eyeliner. Apply the eyeliner to your top lid ONLY. Try to make the line as close to the lash as possible. When you reach the end of your eyelid, flick the eyeliner brush upwards slightly, so that the line tilts up. Then, put on mascara, on the top lashes only. The eyeliner will give the impression that your eyes are slanted, and will make the double-lid less noticeable. The mascara makes you just generally look good. It also makes the eyeliner look closer to your lashes, and therefore more natural. Don't smudge the eyeliner. It will make it look more natural, but less Asian.
- If you have an especially long mouth, or if your lips are naturally very red, then try wearing a beige-ish or very light pink lipstick, to minimize it. If your lips are very thin, try using a lip plumping lipstick. You can buy those at most pharmacies or at makeup places like Sephora.
