Two words: straight eyelashes.

1. Your mom, grandmothers, and aunts openly commenting on your skin.

2. Testing out BB creams is an endless and painful journey.

3. Uneven eyelids make your makeup process longer than it should be.

4. For girls with hooded lids, all your eyeshadow efforts are wasted when you open your eyes.

5. Products your friends praise for being pigmented tend to disappear into your skin.

6. Curls last for like 0.5 seconds because your hair is SO straight.

7. Your mom complains whenever you get tan.

8. Eyebrow hairs don't listen to you.

9. You're addicted to Asian sheet masks.

10. You wonder if coloring your hair is worth it, since you'd have to do your eyebrows too.

11. Finding the perfect foundation is harder than it looks.

12. And magazines really only recommend products for three or four skin tones.

13. Having short-ass eyelashes that are stick-straight.

14. You cry a little inside when you see people with long eyelashes.

15. And having a love-hate relationship with fake eyelashes.

16. Spending too much time analyzing your large pores in the mirror.

17. Wishing you had perfect skin like all the Korean pop stars...

18. Eyebrow pencils made for brown/black hair are way too dark for you.

19. Actually figuring out what type of makeup works for your eye shape is hard.

20. Learning how to do monolid makeup requires a ton of a trial and error.

21. Being addicted to contouring but feeling too lazy in the mornings.

22. Realizing that bleaching your hair is the only way you'll get colorful hair.

23. Hiding your under-eye circles that will NEVER go away.

24. Certain lipsticks aren't flattering on your skin tone.

25. Rolling your eyes whenever an article claims all Asians are obsessed with "Western" beauty standards.
