Tips for Hooded Eyes

Hooded Eyes are when the excess skin below your brow bone folds over the entire lid. 

Here are a few tips to help you apply eye makeup:

💋 It’s best to use waterproof mascara as with hooded eyes your lashes tend to touch your browbone. This will prevent any smears or smudges. 

💋 Invest in a good primer – this will prevent your makeup from creasing which is a common problem for hooded eyes. 

💋 Do apply highlighter to the inner corner of your eye and browbone to give the illusion of a more open eye. 

💋 You want to create a new crease line so apply your eyeshadow above your natural crease line so that when you open your eyes, the colour won’t get lost. The best way to do this is to have your eyes opened and then apply. 

💋 Applying liner can be difficult on a hooded eye – you want to ensure you use a liner that will dry quickly and not smudge during the day. A gel liner is probably the easiest to work with as it dries quickly. 

💋 A flick is good for opening up the eye but keep that eyeliner thin and as close to the lash line as possible.
