Top 4 Makeup Tips for People With Hooded Eyes, Boston, Massachusetts

Applying eye makeup is tricky. For women with hooded eyes, which have the eyelid mostly covered by excess skin, creating a look that won’t smudge can be extra challenging. If you have this type of lid, you may want to seek out a salon service for a special event. However, there are also tricks you can use at home to create a stunning look. To help you apply eye shadow and liner like a pro, here are some makeup tips for navigating hooded eye shapes.

Professional Makeup Tips for Hooded Eyes

1. Use Makeup Primer

People with hooded eyes often have more issues with smudged makeup because there’s less room between the eyelid and the brow bone. That’s why many professional salon services use primer, which helps keep products in place and smudge-free. Primer is available in both spray and cream form, and should be applied all over the eyelid before any color is added.

When applying makeup, including eye shadow and liner, keep your eyes as open as possible. This will give you a wider canvas to work with and help prevent smudging.

3. Use Shimmery Shades Sparingly

Shiny, glittery makeup can draw attention to the shape of your eyes, so you may want to opt for matte shades. However, that doesn’t mean you have to forgo shimmery products altogether. Just keep them relegated to the area of your eyelid right above the lash line. You can also add a highlighter to the corner of each eye to brighten your look and make you appear more awake.

4. Opt for Thin Eyeliner

Thickly applied eyeliner is likely to get lost in hooded eyes. Thin eyeliner is best in this case, as it preserves space for eye shadow and makes your eyelid area appear wider. You can also go for a smoky effect by drawing a subtle artificial crease using eyeliner. Just make sure you blend thoroughly to avoid a harsh line.
