11 Glam AF Makeup Tips For People With Hooded Eyes

Be your most poppin' at all your formal occasions.

1. If your eyes are downturned, the flick of winged liner will counteract it.

2. However don't make the liner too thick, as it will eat into the little lid space you do have.

3. Alternatively, tightline your upper lash line to darken the eyes.

4. Also don't worry if your wing looks different on each eye, or isn't completely straight when closed.

The trick with hooded eyes is keeping up the illusion. Practice makes perfect, and experimentation is how you'll figure out what works for your exact eye shape.

5. Avoid shimmery and glittery shadows in the crease of your eye socket.

6. Instead, always blend a matte shade above the crease to create dimension and make the eyes appear bigger.

7. Try your hand at creating a cut-crease eyeshadow look to give the appearance of a higher crease.

8. Try to find a good waterproof liquid liner and mascara.

9. And in the same vein, invest in some good eye primer to prevent your shadows from shifting.

10. Lashes that have some space between them will be your best friend.

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!

11. And if you decide to get your makeup done professionally, bring in a photo of a celebrity with hooded eyes to base your look on.

Celebrities like Blake Lively, Lucy Liu, Jennifer Lawrence, and Camilla Belle are a good place to start looking for inspiration.
