Tips for Hooded Eyelids

You have a hooded eyelid if the lid is mostly hidden by a fold of skin that comes from above the socket. In terms of make-up application here are a few tips to help.

When you look forward into the mirror you probably don’t see a lot of eyelid space. You may think that there is no point to applying shadow to this area but don’t avoid it. Others will see it when you blink.

Apply a light shade on the inner corner of the lid. This will open the eye up and help make the area look larger. If dark shadow is applied here on hooded eyes it makes the eyes appear smaller and only accentuates the hoodedness.

Open your eye and mark about half a centimetre above the point that your eyelid masks. Blend eyeshadow up to that point. This is the area that is visible once your eyes are open.

Soften the shadow and blend upwards towards the brow bone. Get rid of any harsh lines.

You aren’t of course limited to this method but it’s a great way to make the best out of hooded eyes.

I hope this was useful. Thanks for the request.

What eye shape have you?
