In several asian cultures, a double eyelid is desirable. In Japan this is called “Futae” and is an eyelid that more closely resembles Caucasian eyes, rather than the more-common-among-Asians single eyelid. There’s a few ways to achieve this look, with some resorting the the rather serious East Asian Blepharoplasty, a cosmetic procedure meant to surgically create the missing fold. Others simply draw it on, and the Futae Compass Eyelid Brush is meant to help in this endeavour. Place one end of the tool right on your cheek and a small sponge-like wheel on the other end will create a perfect line right across your lid. Sounds great in principle. We’d like to think that not every person of Asian descent has a perfectly semi-circular lid, nor an eye of the same size. But hey, for $63 you can order the thing and see if it works for you.
