Asian Beauties Review
It certainly wasn't what I had expected or wanted. The faces of the models are not pure Asian faces; rather they are Asian blends with beautiful deep-set eyes. The faces in the book hardly need any help. I wanted some tips for every day makeup. Many of the models had makeup on that I wouldn't even wear at night. I am especially interested in makeup for the eyes. I had expected some tips for the various types of Asian eyes which no magazine ever covers.
However, that was not the case. I'm sorry I bought the book. I had planned to buy another one as a gift but will not do so now. By Vivian on August 26, The book focuses too heavily on women with Eurasian people of asian and caucasian decent. Eurasian models in the book seem to outnumber pure-blooded asian models. When a book claims to have advice to help people with unique "Asian" features, you would think that it would have more models with these unique "asian features" ie: The problem with featuring so many Eurasians in the book is the fact that Eurasians often have very "Cauasian" features Many of the models in the book had so little asian blood in them that they didn't look asian at all - i remember turning to a page to find what very much appeared to be a full-blooded caucasian woman staring back at me - all this in a book entitled "Asian Beauty".
I guess Kimura emphasizes Eurasian models because they're so stunningly beautiful and exotic Besides the fact that Kimura uses too few models with authentic Asian features. Her book provides minimal information on how to actually apply make-up Hopefully an someone else will come around and write the first "how-to" book on Asian Beauty. By Pip on June 19, This is a coffee table book, not an instruction manual. For those interested in step by step instructions this book is not for you.
Large, color, real photographs of women of various ages and ethnicities. The stories surrounding the women were interesting, but not really necessary in a book centered on makeup. As others have stated, the makeup applications are more experimental than classic. Direct advice on how to apply the makeup is scarce and there are no real variations on a theme.
Kimura's book is great for admiring, but does little for helping the everyday woman with the practical application of makeup. I am of full-blooded Chinese descent, and I found this book very helpful. I haven't worn makeup consistently throughout my life, so when I started applying the techniques in this book, I received many compliments. I also liked the way I looked when I used the shadows and light technique. My only complaint, if I may call it that, is that since people were more used to seeing me in "plain face," sometimes they would compliment me by saying, "you're makeup looks so beautiful!
By True Refinement on July 17, If anyone has read all of the reviews on this book they will notice that overall many consider that the book Asian Beauty falls extremely short of its goal.
And if one has read all the posted reviews they will notice that most of the few positive opinions of this book have been posted by probably white readers and the majority of the negative and more realistic postings were made by Asians who know "real" Asian beauty. Like many I was happily awaiting a book dedicated to Asian beauty but as an African American even I noticed the frequent Eurasian featured models and the short and vague makeup advice.
At first I thought I would be the only one giving a negative opinion on this book but I am glad that many recognize its faults. Customers also viewed these items. Ancient and Modern Tips from the Far East. AsianDate has some of the hottest Asian mail order brides you will find anywhere online. In fact, if you are dreaming of dating hot Chinese models it is probably the best place on the internet to begin your quest.
The site is well laid out, easy to use, and if you look closely it is easy to see that the site is part of the Anastasia family of websites. In the interest of full disclosure you should know that there is a small group of people on the internet who charge that Anastasia is a scam. Will they try to get you to spend more money than you thought you were going to spend? But that does not mean that AsianDate is a scam? They actually explain all of their policies in the fine print and one of the main points of this review is to explain the fine print, so you can find the girl of your dreams without busting your budget.
There are a lot of beautiful Asian ladies on the site now, but you should check back regularly to AsianDate because they make it their business to find super hot Chinese models, beautiful Filipina girls, and sexy Thai brides. AsianDate, like all of the Anastasia family of sites, is essentially selling credits that are used to send and open emails. ANY International dating agency that operates on a credit system is generally more expensive than agencies that sell address or membership to a web site — because it cost a credit to send an email and another credit to open a reply.
Try to keep that in mind as you begin the process. One huge advantage is that AsianDate does translate the letters for free. Not being allowed to contact a woman outside of the approved channel is a real irritant to a lot of guys, so you should know it going in. This gives you enough credits to send her a letter and to read her reply and it means that you are not in for, perhaps a hundred bucks that you might have to pay at some sites. She is from Philippines. From the moment I saw her, I wanted her.
She is the hottest and sexiest woman I have ever known. Oh, I met my spouse and the most amazing woman on this dating site. I have been a frequent user at this site for around 6 months, the good news is that the majority of these girls are interested in obtaining a western husband. I found my girl on this site. Well at first she thought I was just another American to just talk and email her.
When we meet the first time in person it was just like we have been together. And I have to say thank you to this site I never thought I would come to love someone so much over the Internet.
The real love found in AsianBeauties. I am the member of Asiandate and let me give you an advice: The more women you engage with, the greater your chances of success! This is a scam site It is not obvious to start with but stand back, look at how they respond to you. If you call them and exchange emails they will never write to you just through the site.
On the opening page it has so called satisfied customers read it carefully you will see it is not written by an English speaking person they are bogus. I have been writing to the customer service people giving them all the evidence and arguing with them they cut off my account.
You will regret it. So guys, let the money I have wasted be your guide do not go there you will spend a lot of money and never get what you want. I have proof it is a scam I even got a sorry from one of the girls.
It is a fraud. I spent loads of money there, some girls may be genuine, but I doubt it. The site constantly sends out false emails claiming to be from females, and chat requests.
Everything you say and do on the site is monitored and you can not exchange personal information. Be warned totally fake website that will take thousands of pounds out of your pocket. I thought you meant Laura and Lala have the same meaning. THAT should have been a red flag right there. How can someone not know her own nickname? I overlooked that, and then I continued chatting with her for 20 minutes before I had to attend a work meeting.
Her letters were all at least 2 paragraphs long but essentially said the same thing. Ultimately, I got on the chat system again and explained to her in Chinese, in her own language, that I would order a phone call so that we could exchange contact information. She agreed to do it. So, in the letters through that site she sent at least paragraphs. In this email she sent 1 sentence. Obviously she is sending form letters through that website. And then soon enough she sent more letters through that website.
And I see her online on that website every single day. She is also on there for very strange hours every day. I sometimes do meetings with bosses in China so I am familiar with the time difference. I see her online on that website from 11 pm to 7 am or so China time. That is a major red flag.
This means Jiaolei Laura is not a real lady. She is either a slut or someone paid to chat with men online. There is a lot more to this Jiaolei Laura but I want to tell you these points for now to let you all know not to be tricked by her. She is definitely a scammer.
Avoid her at all costs. My ex-husband is on this site everyday. I checked out this site. Do not, I repeat, do not get sucked in. One lady I emailed with gave conflicting information about her background — it did not match her profile. She first stated she was a nurse in china, then became a emergency room doctor for many years. Then she divorced her husband.. Then came to canada and became…a what??
Working in a laundromat. Now excuse me, but I am familiar with immigration rules to canada, and if you are a skilled professional like a doctor, you will not have a problem coming on over if that is what you wish to do.
She listed her hometown as vancouver but then said she lived in Victoria BC.
