Hooded eyes are those where the upper eyelid area is visibly less due to an additional layer of skin on the brow bone drooping over the crease. The eyelids have a narrower space because the skin on the brow bone touches the lashline when eyes are open. This condition is common in a number of people, either by birth or with aging.
For females, it is a problem when it comes to makeup because makeup is what every woman loves to do to enhance her beauty, but hooded eyes makeup is quite tricky and needs more attention and effort to slay the beautiful eye makeup. Here are a few tips for people with drooping eyes:
Excess layers of skin drooping on the lids cover most of the eyelids leaving less space to be displayed. Applying a dense eyeliner will make the area seem shadowy and the space for eyeshadows is stolen. Thus, the eyes look even smaller so it is better to apply a thin stroke of eyeliner closer to the lashline.
If you want a winged liner, start with the corner of the line that you drew keeping your eyes open and moving it outwards in the direction of the eyebrow’s tail.
Using pen liners is easier to apply on droopy eyes.
Your eyes seem to look big by using white or nude eye pencils on the waterline.
Eyelashes cannot be compromised during makeup because it is incomplete without modifying them. Mascara is very crucial to curve the lashes upward and make them look voluminous, so your makeup looks gorgeous.
But natural lashes are not enough nowadays due to the growing trend of false lashes. The application of too thick and bigger lashes on hooded eyes weighs the eyes and makes them even smaller so choose short and natural-looking falsies for a natural and dramatic look. You can look for affordable lashes for hooded eyes on different prestigious and authentic online stores.
Protip is to cut them from edges to suit your eye shape.
Make-up on saggy eyes smudge in a moment and ruin all the effort done on the look but to have smudge-free makeup, prime your lids first before putting on any product so it adheres, uses waterproof mascara and eyeliner, uses matte eyeshadows, and avoid liquid-based items.
Finding a crease of your eye is difficult while the eyes are closed as skin droops on the lids when you open your eyes so apply the shades on the crease with your eyes open.
Apply the shadow a little above your natural crease to fake the natural fold of your eye and have a bigger eye.
Use matte eyeshadows rather than shimmery so light does not reflect on the eyes and make the hood more apparent.
Do not use dark shades on the hood of the eyes.
