How to Make a Double Eyelid

Among the many things people do to make their eyes look bigger (such as applying makeup and false eyelashes) creating a "double eyelid" is one of them for many Asian women. About half of all Asians are born without the double eyelid crease.

In Asia, blepharoplasty (surgery to create the double eyelid) is the most popular cosmetic procedure.[2] Women who would like to add this feature to their eyes have both surgical and non-surgical options available. While surgical procedures have become a popular option for creating a double eyelid, non-surgical methods are a good way to get a preview of what a double lid will look like prior to committing to a more permanent cosmetic procedure.

Learn the difference between an Asian and Caucasian double eyelid. Asian eyelid creases begin close to the eyelash at the inner corner of the eye, and move parallel to the brow by the midpoint of the eye. In contrast, Caucasian eyelid creases form an upside-down "U" shape, with a taper closer to the shape of the eyelashes. One effect of this is that the application of eyeliner will not be noticeable unless the eyes are closed.

Create double eyelids through the use of cosmetic products like double eyelid glue or eyelid tape. These are temporary ways that allow you to see what you will look like with double eyelids. These techniques typically last a day and wash away with soap and water when you wash the rest of your face.

Wash your face well prior to applying double eyelid glue or tape, so you have a clean, non-oily surface to work with. Pat the face dry, paying extra attention to the eye area. Wait a few minutes to ensure the area is completely dry before applying the double eyelid adhesive.

Apply the eyelid tape or glue just above your lash line. For a natural look, follow the natural line of the inner wall of your eye socket. If you are using double eyelid glue, wait 30 to 60 seconds for the adhesive to set before pushing the eyelid into place. If you are applying eyelid tape, you can begin the next step right away.

Gently push your upper eyelid toward the adhesive strip, using a "Y" tool or the end of a bobby pin. Work one small section of the eyelid at a time, waiting 30 seconds to 1 minute to ensure that portion of the eyelid adheres completely to the upper lid before moving to the next section.

Apply cosmetics, such as eyeshadow, mascara and liner to the eye to enhance the look as desired. The double eyelid should last throughout the day, until you wash off the adhesive with soap and warm water.
