Honey Make Up Is Perfect For Asian Skin Tones

These cosy honey make up neutrals are not only easy to carry off, they pack more of punch then your usual browns and nudes.

When it comes to makeup, we are currently loving honey hues. Why? These earthy tones look great on most skin types, especially Asian complexions, and the tinge of gold in them helps to give the natural tone a little sparkle and shine.

 

The best thing about honey is you can literally wear it anywhere on your face. Put on a sunny shade on your peepers for a pop of colour, or go for darker honey hues to create a more modern smokey eye. You can also apply it on your cheeks in place of your highlighter for a golden glow, or even on your puckers for fun version of a nude lipstick.
