I have double eyelids, but when my eyes are fully open, it looks like monolids. Only if I raise my eyebrows, then can see my double lid. People call it 'hidden double eyelids'. My double eyelids are not very stable, sometimes they appear wider when I wake up, sometimes they just turn out to be monolids.
I used to wear the traditional double lid tape if my eyelids are not in good condition in the morning. Those tapes are able to create a perfect shape of double lids, but somehow looks unnatural. Moreover, I always got trouble with applying eyeshadow with those tapes on.
Here is how it looks. It's so obvious that everybody knows I'm wearing double eyelid tape, without looking close to my eyes.. -_-|||
I've been looking for better solutions to solve the problem, till one day I saw the recommendation from Jen (fromheadtotoe: review of wonder eyelid tape) about the Wonder eyelid tape.
It's double sided tape and is different from traditional double eyelid tape.
It's never easy to find those products in Singapore, but finally I managed to get packs two from overseas. The full name of this product is Wonder Eyelid Tape by a Japanese company named D-up.
There are 60 pairs of tapes, one applicator and an instruction inside the package.
It gives a detailed instruction on how to apply and remove the tapes, but in Japanese!!
It comes with three separate pieces, each has 20 pairs of tapes.
There is a cut in the middle of each strip for easy removal.
Tape on the applicator
Squeeze the applicator to make it to be round shape.
My bare eye, you can see that my double eyelid is very tiny. :D
Place the tape on the eyelid, which should be slightly higher than your natural crease.
Use the applicator to gently press on the tape and then open your eyes, your eyelid will be sticked together and it looks like a real natural double eyelid.
How it looks if I close my eyes. You won't see any tape on my eyelid, but a odd shape line. I definitely need more practice to make my eyes look more natural.
Note*: Stick the tape before any makeup to make it lasts longer.
