Do you have droopy eyelids or hooded eyes as it is also called?
This post is about hanging eyelids / hooded eyes and fits in very well right now also as it was not so long since I blogged about just this. I hope you like it!
Makeup Tips Hanging Eyelids
Hooded eyes and / or droopy eyes have quite a lot of skin over the eyelid when they look straight ahead, so for you to see better what I mean, I press down the skin a little with my finger, and mark out with dots where I want to show you:
Tip 1 - Apply the eyeshadow above the crease line crease
Hooded eye shapes often show only a little or nothing at all of the eyelid when they look straight ahead. So if you close your eyes and apply eye shadow only on that area, it will in principle only be visible when you blink. It can be a nice effect, but if you want the make-up to be visible all the time, you should also make up a little bit above the globe line so that it is visible even when you look straight ahead!
A trick is to look straight ahead in the mirror, and mark with the eyeshadow how high you want it to go depending on how much you want it to be visible. Then you can start from that marking when you make up the eyelid.
Tip 2 - If you are going to use two different eye shadows
If you want two colors and that both should be visible at the same time, skip the eyeliner so that the eyeshadow on the eyelid reaches down to the fringe edge, and then you can apply the other color along the globe line. Then both will be visible! In the picture you see an example of how to apply the colors.
Tip 3 - Cat eyes
If you want a more elongated cat eye shape on the make-up, it is a good idea to put make-up so far out that you "embed" the entire crease line crease. Then it does not matter how you move the eyes, that crease will in any case not make the makeup look choppy or uneven.
To easily get this nice, it is a good idea to also apply eye shadow on the underside of the eye and "tie together" the makeup in the outer corner of the eye. Read mine previous postsabout cat eyes for more tips!
Tip 4 - Cat eyes with two different eye shadows
If you want to make a cat eye shape with two different colors, it is smart to apply the outermost color a fairly long distance into the eyelid, so that the transition does not end up exactly in the skin fold. Because then the transition can look uneven depending on how you look with your eyes.
Tip 5 - Enlarge the eyelid
If you want to enlarge the look and make the eyelid look even bigger, you can apply that color on the eyelid and along the crease line, and then make a newgoblin line marking that sits higher up than your real globe line!
But still think about the tip I wrote in point 4, do not put the transition between the shadows right in the skin fold.
Tip 6 - Eyebrows
My last tip is about the eyebrow. Here the outer edge of my eyebrow slopes quite a bit downwards because I press it down. But many have the natural shape that it follows the eye in the same downward slope. But if you can (it depends on how your eyebrow grows) then it is a good tip to shape the outer edge more to the side than down, because then you look up more. Because if the eyebrow has the same downward slope as the eye, you mark that the eye hangs a little down.
Hope you understood everything and that my tips for you with droopy eyelids / hooded eyes were helpful! ♥
