I went eyelid tape shopping in Hong Kong and here's my haul:
I didn't know which one is better so I got two types. I was thinking they only differ in the shape but that's where I'm wrong! This one is the double eyelid tape. It has two sticky sides which makes it really easy to use.
And as if I wasn't contented yet, I got myself an eyelid glue too! This one is really nice but it doesn't stay the whole day. I hate that after a few hours, you have these white glue residue on your eyes, much line when you put Elmer's glue on your hands and peel it off.
Obviously, my favorite is the first one, which is the double sided eyelid tape. Too bad I didn't buy a lot :(
Here's a step-by-step on putting it on:
Step 1: Determine where you want your new crease to be by poking your eyelid with the plastic stick that comes with the box.
Step 2: Carefully put the eyelid tape HIGHER than where you want your crease.
And voila! An eyelid! I wasn't very careful with positioning the tape with this one that's why there's a bit of unevenness. It takes a lot of practice to get it right.
The local shops in Manila only carry the one-sticky-sided eyelid tape which I tell you is a waste of money. I have yet to find a local supplier of the double-sided eyelid tape. I don't want to order online cause the eyelid is very cheap and I don't want to spend more money for the shipping. If you know a shop (in the mall) that carries the double-sided eyelid tape, please let me know!
I'm glad there are products that address common problems like having no eyelids. I thought only surgery could help me but not anymore. Thank you to the crazy Eastern Asian monolid girls who invented this product ;)
