hooded eyes

Hooded eyes are sometimes called "bedroom eyes" because the lids tend to look partly closed. Applied correctly, eye color can help hooded eyes appear more open by minimizing the eyelid. Your goal is to make the fleshy lid area "push away" or recede, and help your eyes become more prominent than the eyelids.

*Never use a dark eyeshadow over the entire lid, because it makes it appear heavier and will close in your eyes.

*Don't be tempted to highlight the browbone too much because doing so can accentuate the hooded appearance.

The eyebrow shape is very important, because attention can be diverted from the hooded eyelid with a beautifully shaped eyebrow.

TIPS: eyeshadow

For a more intense color, try using both powder and crème shadows together. Remember that powder on top of crème will hinder blending, but you still always begin with the crème. It contradicts the rule of crème-on-crème, powder-on-powder but it works.

You can also use your powder shadow as a eyeliner. Simply apply it wet or dry using a brush.

Some powder shadows are harder-pressed and more powdery, while others have a slightly creamy texture.
