Hooded Eyes Hook

Hey! If You Luv Makeup & Beauty readers. Thanks for stopping by today. A few emails came in about how to apply eyeshadow for hooded eyes. I realize this topic was not posted on my blog. So here we go…Hooded eyes are sometimes called “bedroom eyes” because the lids trend to look partly closed. To make the 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 highlight the browbone too much, because doing so can accentuate the hooded appearance of the eyelid.


Highlight shade: Apply to browbone and along the upper lash line.
Midtone shade: Start at the base of your upper lash line and bring the color up and over the entire hooded area. This helps the lid recede. Make sure to blend the areas where the midtone color meets the highlight color.
Contour shade: Start at base of the lash line and bring the color up and over the hooded area. For this eye shape, you need to bring your contour color in a little farther and up a little higher than on the other eye shapes. This will help the hooded area recede. Next, sweep the contour color underneath the lower lashes to define the lower lashline. You don’t want to miss this step! Hooded eyes really benefit from a well-defined upper and lower lash line.

Until next time…Have a wonderful day!

Classic Hollywood Look

Today is Classic Hollywood Day! Get Excited! Every screen siren, alluring actress and even you can rock this look. Excellent for special occasion.

Makeup Needed:
Black Eye Shadow
Black Eyeliner
Gold Eye Shadow
Red Lipstick
Red Lip Liner

The ultimate old-world charm and glamour, the classic Hollywood look can incorporate bold colors and heavy makeup without appearing overdone.
How to Get the Classic Hollywood Look?

Outline your eyes with black eye shadow or black eyeliner. Don't make the line too thick, but do go all the way around. If you're new to the look, go very easy on your bottom lid. Thicken the line at the
outside corners of your eyes and roughly the outside half of your eyes. Don't put anything more on the inside corners.

Then, swipe gold eye shadow on the inside corners and any part of your lids untouched by black shadow. This will glam up and even out the look.

Next, choose lipstick and lip liner in a red shade with a slightly dark tint to it. Color in your whole lip with lip liner, and then swipe the lipstick on. This will prevent feathering out and fading.

Until next time…
