Makeup is not something that hides or changes the features, it is something that enhances the already present features. You can wear makeup daily or occasionally, that is all up to you. Wear it as you want, how often you want. It all comes down to being confident and carry positively whatever you wear. Eye makeup is an important part of the makeup routine and it can be a bit difficult sometimes, especially mastering the art of perfect eyeliner. This is even more difficult with hooded eyes. Hooded eyes are the one which has fold of skin from the brow to the upper eyelash. This makes it difficult to apply makeup on the eyelid as it can be easily smudged or the makeup done gets hidden under the fold of skin. It is a task to master ways to apply eye makeup to this eye shape. If you have this eye shape and struggle with eye makeup then you are at the right place. Look at the tips provided below to enhance your makeup game and make your eyes look more beautiful than they already are.
Give proper attention to your eyebrows
Eyebrows can either make or break your appearance. The shape of your eyebrows plays a crucial role in changing your features. Hooded eyes tend to look smaller than they are and the shape of brows can make your eyes look big. Give them the shape that compliments the eyes such as straight or shaping them in a low arch. These shapes make the eyes look more open and give them a structure. Maintain the brows regularly. Such as brushing them, trimming or tweezing the extra growth, and giving them volume and depth using a brow pen.
Prime it up
Hooded eyes have a skin fold and thus applying eye products such as eyeshadows or glitter may be a bit problematic as it can accumulate in the crease and give out an untidy look. Creasing of products at the skin fold is inevitable but this can be decreased to an extent by priming up the eyelid. Invest in a waterproof, good-quality primer. Applying a primer makes it easy to put shadows on the lid as it has something extra to hold and stay on to. Concealer or foundation can work as a base too. Make sure you use some oil-free and waterproof products.
Keep your eyes open
After applying primer or you can say preparing the base, the next step is to put some eyeshadows on it. Try putting the eyeshadow on the lid with your eyes open. We usually put it with our eyes closed but here we won’t be able to see the crease and this might ruin the look you are going for. With the eyes open you can see the formation of the crease and can do your design around it without ruining the look. You can put the main important colors first with your eyes open and then when you get the rough idea, you can close your eye and blend it and work on it accordingly.
It’s time for eyeliner
Winged or bold liners are always the talks of the town. But here we won’t be using any of these two. Hooded eyes look smaller when some dark shades or bold liners are used. This will destroy our efforts to make them look bigger and brighter. In order to achieve what we are looking for choose a thin simple eyeliner look. A very thin line on your lash line works fine. You can even line under or in the lash line, just look for what seems better on your eyes. Use white eyeliner to make the eyes look brighter.
Finishing the look
To finish the look, you can put on some false lashes but make sure they are not too dramatic or big or too small to even get noticed. Try putting the one which has more length at the center as that will enhance the eyes. You can apply some highlighter over your brow instead of under the brow. This helps accentuate the eye. Finish the look by using a setting spray and you are good to go.
If you have these beautiful eyes then go and try the above-mentioned tricks and see how much difference can it make in the outlook and beautify your entire look. No eye shape is good or bad, you just have to know ways to bring out the best feature using certain tricks and techniques. Just some days of experiment and practice and voila you will be a pro in this makeup game. Don’t be afraid to try new methods or products. See what works the best for you. Makeup is all about having fun, give new trends a try, and enjoy the process.
