They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, but nail art enthusiasts could argue it’s the nails. After all, the hands can tell us a lot about someone. Short, nude nails or sharp stiletto claws with a maximalist design might just be personality markers in the form of a manicure. On the other hand (pun intended), nails can help accessorize an outfit, send a political message, or become a global trend (glazed donut nails, anyone?). Over the years, celebrity manicurists, many of them Asian- Am...

The first time someone did my makeup for me, I was in seventh grade. My best friend at the time had started experimenting with makeup, and I thought she looked beautiful. I thought I would too. But when she added her finishing touches to me, and I looked in the mirror, I didn’t love what I saw. The eyeshadow just didn’t flatter my eyes the same as it did hers. Probably because she had sangapeul, or double eyelids in Korean — aka the visible crease between the eyelashes and eyebrows. I don’t. ...

Katie Fang’s TikToks Empower Young Asian Girls To Be No One Else But Themselves
It was your average bad day for your average 17-year-old. Katie Fang, then a high school senior, was supposed to have the day off from work, but instead, was called into her part-time job at Cactus Club Cafe. Upset and in tears, Fang propped up her phone, hit record, and started doing her makeup. Between sniffles and sobs, she applied brow gel, dotted concealer under her eyes, and swirled bronzer, then blush, and then bronzer and blush again along her cheekbones. She sighed, dabbed highlighte...
For as long as I can remember, I’ve defied the lazy stereotype of Asian hair — pin-straight, ultra-fine, and jet-black. I have an alarmingly thick head of hair — the kind that requires two stylists’ blow-drying simultaneously. The kind that routinely snaps sturdy elastics. My father is Japanese and has stick-straight, fine hair. My mom, who is Puerto Rican, has a gorgeous head of bouncy curls. I’ve been told I’m a fascinating case study, as my hair is naturally thick as a lion’s mane but pron...
