Hooded eyelids are among the most common types of eye shapes, and while it's commonly associated with Asians, many beautiful non-Asian celebrities also have this eye shape. Maybe your eyes are extremely hooded, or you just wish you had a little more eyelid space for makeup. Perhaps you've only just noticed this problem as you've got older, or you've struggled with it all your life.
Invest in good primer
Those with hooded lids and know better than anyone else how easily their eye makeup smears and smudges, so invest in a great primer to get things off to a stellar start.
Keep your eyes open
When applying eyeshadow, your natural instinct may be to close your eyes. However, if you have hooded lids, it's best to apply makeup with your eyes open, because it can be hard to find your natural crease with your eyes closed.
Use wispy lashes
Thick, dramatic lashes will completely hide any eyeshadow you're wearing. Wispy lashes will give you volume and length, while still showing off your lids!
Always use a matte shade in your crease
If you have hooded eyes, shimmery shades on the crease will work against you, making the skin appear saggier than it actually is. Instead, always blend a matte shade above the crease to create dimension and make the eyes appear bigger.
Embrace waterproof mascara
of the most annoying things about having hooded eyes is that your lashes often touch your brow bone. This means that if your mascara isn't smudge-proof, you're going to end up with black smears under your eyebrows, especially if your skin gets more sweaty or oily throughout the day.
Apply thin eyeliner
When applying eyeliner, make sure to draw a very thin line that is nestled right up against your upper lash line. Otherwise, the eyeliner will appear to take over your entire eyelid. After all, no one wants to look like you've used a drawing marker on your eyelids, right?
