Makeup tips hanging eyes & hooded eyes

    When I published mine posts about eyeliner for hooded eyes and droopy eyes, I was asked to show tips with eye shadow as well. So it's coming now! :)

    I use the same image where I press down on the skin a bit to show what happens when the skin fold from the globe line goes quite far out:


    Tip 1 - These eye shapes often show only slightly or nothing at all of the eyelid when looking 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 make up a little bit above the globe line as well 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 And 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, 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 - 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 posts about cat eyes for more tips!

    Tip 4 - 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 - If you want to enlarge the look and make the eyelid look even bigger, you can apply that color to the eyelid and along the globe line, and then make one new goblin 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 - 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 were helpful! ♥
