Makeup for Hooded Eyes / Droopy Eyes
I know it’s difficult to do desired makeup on hooded eyelids. But our step-by-step guide will help you create a perfect makeup look quite easily.
You just need to focus on the following points while doing makeup.
- Make perfect crease
- Focus on lid space
- Always make uplifted look
Let’s check out how you can create a perfect look by focusing on the above points.
1) Start with Primer
Always start with the primer, when you have a droopy upper lid. Because the excess skin under the brows will always interfere with eyeshadow application.
So, there are prior chances that you may end up smudged makeup look. It’s better to use primer, it will help you prevent this.
2) Use Light Shades
Go for light shades. Whenever you use light shades on your eyelids with droopy eyes. It makes your eyes prettier.
So, use light shade instead of darker ones. Darker shades make your eyes look dull and tired.
Use light color all over your eyelids. It will help create an illusion. Also, it will create an effect of more lid space, that’s what we want.
Note: Don’t even think to use sparkly shadows on the base.
3) Create Crease
I suggest, use a darker shade while defining your crease. Also, always eyeshadow above from the natural crease. Even though there is no visible crease on hooded eyelids.
It will enhance the beauty of your eyes and create an uplifting effect. Lifted eyes look younger and more attractive.
Pro Tip: angled up to your shadow when applying. It creates a lifting effect. Also, leave the space between eyebrow and fake crease to highlight your eyebrows.
4) Use Shimmer
Now is the time to add shimmer in the center of your eyelid. But make sure you’re moving from the lash line to the crease. Also, keep in mind that don’t go too high.
This shimmery effect will create an illusion of more eyelid space. This shimmery trick can work for any girl out there.
5) Shades on Inner Corner
Apply light shades on the inner corners of your eyes. Also, you can add shimmer to make your eyes look bigger and brighter.
Make sure to highlight your eyebrows with light colors. A Matte shade may go well. But you can pick the lighter shade of your choice.
6) Upper Lash Line
Apply water eyeliner to the upper lash line. Always try to make a thick line. Because lining the upper lash line will lift your eye.
Also, it makes your eye look bigger and catchy.
Note: For maximum eye size, don’t apply eyeliner to your lower lash line.
7) Use Liquid Eyeliner
Many makeup lovers like to create a winged look. So, yeah! You can add some liquid eyeliner to the corner of your eyes to make the lifted look.
The key here is to make thin lines and at the right angle. I recommended using waterproof eyeliner for better results.
8) Curl Your Eyelashes
It’s one of the main steps. Don’t skip it, if you want to look adorable. Curl your lashes to make your eyes look bigger. Because heavy and long lashes normally make hooded eyes look dull and tired.
So, you can use a lash curler to curl your lashes. It will enhance your beauty.
9) Use Mascara
How can you forget mascara? It’s the best time to use mascara. It plays a vital role in making your lashes look great.
Also, the plus point of using mascara is, it gives strength and long-lasting hold to your lashes. But don’t use excessive mascara, it may ruin your look.
10) Use Concealer
Finally! The last step is to use concealer under your eyes. Now is the time to clean up. Clear the eyeshadow that may have dusted under your eyes mistakenly.
Also, clear your extra crease. It makes your eyes pop out.
