Cat eye makeup for hooded eyes

    - Advertisement -

    What fun that you liked the make-up at Frida this day! It seems to be really appreciated with tips for hooded eyes, and I got a request for a tutorial on makeup so I did one on myself today :)

    It will be more effective on Frida's eyes, but good on everyone and above all you will see in this post how I have done a little more detailed.

    Hope this is helpful!


    Here you see my eyes before and after I put them on. This make-up gives the same effect as a wide eyeliner wing, but is not as difficult to do at all, especially if you have hooded eyes and have a little extra difficulty making a sharp wing, which should look good both when looking straight ahead and when you blinks.

    When you have hooded eyes (and even many who do not have them) often have a fairly long crease line, which extends far to the sides and causes the eyeliner wing to break depending on how you look.

    I would explain to Miska in simple language the other day why it is difficult, and then I said 'if I sit down, I get two "car rings" on my stomach so that there is a fold in the middle, imagine that you should paint a triangle over that fold, which should be nice both when I sit down and when I stand, and preferably when I'm about to pose too”. Lol. Strange explanation but the same principle, and he understood what I meant :)

    Face primer - Paese Makeup Base (Matte)
    Foundation - gloMinerals Pressed Base Foundation (Golden Light)
    Powder that neutralizes red - gloMinerals Redness Relief Powder
    Contouring - Pixi Book Of Beauty Contour Creator
    Rouge - Pixi Book Of Beauty Blush Palette
    Makeup Fixing Mist - Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist
    Dehydrating powders - Paese Bamboo Silk Powder

    On the lips I have Benecos Natural Lipliner (Red).


    I do this sweeping with the help of regular eyeliner and then the palette Paese Kashmir Trio Eyeshadow (685) which is a gray scale with light gray, gray and carbon black. Perfect for a smokey eye!


    1. Eyeshadow primer, Pixi Eye Bright Primer
      Paint the outer edge of the eyeliner as far out as you want it, preferably so that it is not broken by any skin fold but is completely straight when you look ahead, Paese Penliner
    2. Black eyeshadow at the end of the eyelid, just inside the eyeliner
    3. Gray eye shadow in the middle of the eyelid
    4. Light gray eyeshadow on the inside of the eyelid and fade out the edges
    5. Paint the eyeliner along the entire lash line
    6. Finish with mascara on the upper lashes, gloMinerals Water Resistant Mascara

    Do not apply the eye shadows over the crease line, apply so that it is only on the eyelid and not over your own crease line. Then the sweeping will not be so visible when you look straight ahead, and then the sweeping looks a little more like an eyeliner.


    Hope the post was helpful! ♥

    1. Then here with commenting, but it was insanely nice! Also on your friend Frida, who I have not finished commenting on. Unfortunately I can not have my wing / dash so far out due to wrinkles and creases, but but, must do the best I can!

    2. I must say that you describe everything so pedagogically and nicely. Also like when it looks clean and nice and not just a lot of color and smudges if you understand what I mean. Now it's time to sit by the mirror and test even if I do not now have such nice smooth eyelids as you when I have reached the upper teens and then they wrinkle together 😉 but shame on the one who gives up.

    3. Thank you so much for great tips for us with hooded eyes. Did not even know what it was called but now it will be a test. Too bad you have your salon so far away. It would have been fun to be made up by you. Maybe you can do a little tour of Sweden to the west coast 😊
