I have double eyelids (a crease or fold on the lids) naturally since I was about 6, and while double eyelids are aesthetically more pleasing to me, the "typical" Asian eyes with single eyelids/monolids can look very cute or elegant. Now, I have nothing against eyelid glue or tape at all, but I just hate hate HATE it when people, usually non-asian makeup artists, try to create a fake "crease" on models with monolids using eyeshadow and/or eyeliner, like this:
This is a milder example, but at the moment I cannot find a better pic via Google. It just looks so unnatural and ugly to me, I don't understand why people do that. What do you guys think? Is this "trying to be white/caucasian"?
EDIT: I realized that I might be a bit hypocritical here, since I do draw on a fake crease for my Mana cosplay makeup, but that's character-specific so it doesn't really count.
