This is a problem in Asia. The contacts to make their eyes different colors and all the glues they use to make them bigger, the skin whitening cream. But we have similar stuff in America too. The fake tans, hair dying in both cultures. I don`t know... we just need to accept what beauty we are born with. All of these girls are beautifully unique, and then they put on all this make up-fake eyes, fake hair, fake eyelashes, and they all look cookie-cutter. When I was in Japan, everyone looked like this and it was creepy. It is unnatural. Maybe someday we will be able to shut out the media, or change the media enough, and be able to live in our skin again...

Truth is though, there isn`t a girl in the world who`s looks can`t be enhanced with a bit of quality make-up. Yet when you really think aabout it make-up is such a ludicrous and demented conceot and highlights that as a species we haven`t really come on that much from the rest of the animal kingdom.

Whoops! My faux-pas @TowerOfMagda! The outside diameter of the iris isn`t supposed to change at all, eh? lolz! So obviously they`re all wearing those contacts you mention, BLEH!

pupils dilate when aroused -

The bigger iris thing is a new craze to mimic anime and Lady Gaga -
They`re contacts with the same color as their eyes with a large outer circle

Pbbbt!
In every single one they make the eyes look bigger and rounder:
Bigger: like a child`s eye proportion
Rounder: like white people`s eyes!
EVERY... SINGLE... ONE! Go look again!

And most of them got new hairstyles too.
A few were kinda cute in the `before` and somewhat cuter in the `after`, but most are still ugly both before and after...
Just MHO, I`m not a fan of makeup, eh? Oh for fun yeah, but "to make me look beautiful" NOT!

(as Bored-er points out, their irises are larger too, an indication of "sexual arousal" in body-language, fwiw...)

"You know, I think they just put two pictures of two different Asian woman next to each other and said that they are the same (only one without and one with make-up), like we see the difference, all the Asian people look alike to us Western people!"

1, 6, and 13 I`m sort of questionable about but the others definitely are the same girls. Even those ones I`m questioning could just be the angles throwing me off. All in all they look sorta crappy w/o make-up.

It`s just the eyes which make this different. They go from having quite odd looking eyes due to the epicanthic (or epicanthal) fold and lack of visable eyelid, to having pretty looking eyes due to mascara, false lashes, eyeliner etc.

to sbeelz who said "I fail to see how this is any different than with women of any other race." Well for starters they`re Chinese so they are different from every other race. Second...ahhh drat it.....I like cheese.

@moefreak: Alot of Asian girls use eyelid tape in order to make them look bigger, as well as circle lenses. The eyelid tape doesn`t do much for us white people. Also, a lot of them use white/nude eyeliner in the waterline. :)

Also,

@moefreak

Actually it`s not the make-up, they wear contacts that are bigger than their irises.

it actually makes them look creepy if you ask me.

It can be done with makeup, and is in some of these photos. The biggest difference in a lot of these is fake eyelashes. Also, if you line your inner lid with white it makes your eyes appear Much bigger. :)

Yeah... the difference is just as great with basically all women. You can do amazing things with make-up.

I need to try to copy the way a lot of these girls have done their eye-make up to make their eyes look bigger.

Most of these look way too done-up. They lose a lot of the detail in their faces with all the foundation and blush they use and it makes them fall right into the uncanny valley.

Couple of `em look decent without, but in general, I don`t think this idea has anything to do with China...

Make-up is the equivalent of paint for your face, and I don`t know about you, but I`ve seen what some people can do with paint on a canvas.

It`s impressive and drastic, but it`s really not that surprising or interesting.

If you`re foolish enough to believe that the average girl ACTUALLY looks this way, you`re in for a rude awakening when you snap out of your rye buzz.

Asians (mostly nort Asians) have larger than normal epicanthic folds around their eyes. I used to date an Asian lady who when doing her makeup would apply a light spirit gum type glue and a tool push her top eyelids back to appear more rounded. The she would cover the temporarily created seam up by applying mascara and eyeshadow

cosmetic contacts go a long way too! I think it`s mainly because in the before pics they have no eye lashes and then in the 2nd, amazing lashes! Latisse?

The fact that most of them had really bad facial expressions in the before picture didn`t really help.

some of these girls dont look bad in their before pictures. some of them are also cheating by doing their hair better and wearing contacts. contacts and hair are not make-up but can be just as important to appearance.

They were mostly hot even without the makeup.

"is that true CrakrJak because I also noticed that ( its fairly obvious) but like is that because its good looking or what?? Is it for those Anime costumes??" _Brownsugar

It most definitely is true, they`re used for visual appeal, it`s a fad...not just over there but here as well. (Apparently they`re bad for the eyes)

Yeah, those contacts are actually a little creepy, they all look like they`ve taken something. And #12 has completely changed her eye colour. It`s weird.

Although there`s plenty of girls from other countries who look waay better with makeup too :P
