The amount of Sunlight they recieve, impaired by the places they live in, it didn't happen over night though, it happened over centuries.

Caucasians have lighter skin, double eyelids, and are taller. And most Asians have a monolid, darker skin with a yellow tint, and are usually shorter. But it really depends which part of Asia you're talking about, there are lots of Asians that look like they're Caucasian.

Environmental factors and gene pools are two factors, and the eyes of the beholders another.

Their skin-tone is slightly different: Skin color amongst Caucasoids ranges greatly from pale, reddish-white to dark brown tones. Asian race has skin color ranging from a yellowish tint to an olive shade. Asians have mostly dark brown or black hair while Caucasian people can have red, blonde, black, brown and red hair. Caucasians have rounder eyes while Asians have almond-shaped eyes. Most Asians have hazel/brown/dark-brown eyes, "white people" can have eyes of blue, green or hazel/brown/dark-brown color. Asian people have mostly straight hair where as Caucasian people can have curly hair too.
These are the things I have noticed, if I'm wrong about something, please correct me. :)

The physical environment causes these differences. Inuit are shorter and more densely built to conserve heat. Like Asians, they have eyes that help them manage the glare of increased sunlight. Kenyans and other Africans have very long bones to dissipate heat. Dark skin also helps with heat. The large noses of dessert people helped moisten dry being inhaled during vigorous activity. Caucasians are such a mix of genes that hair and eye colour is unpredictable. The reddish hair comes from genes originating with Vikings and Scandinavian people's.

Genetics

Why do you not look exactly like a parent or a sibling? No one has exactly the same DNA make-up.

What makes a Caucasian look different from an African-American? What makes a Caucasian look different from a Mexican? Who cares? We all have feelings, a heart, and compassion.

Genetics fueled by diet. Caucasians (Europeans) have always had a large amount of vitamin D in their diet, while conversely Asians have not relied on dairy products, even in a small way, in their societies.
Most belief the eye lids are due to Asian ancestors having come from the area of Siberia during the last ice age. the glare from ice and snow would likely result in the body developing a way to counter this and the mono-lid would be ideal for it.
