There are a few things to keep in mind when doing eye makeup on hooded or heavy eyes. First, use lighter colours on the eyelid to brighten the area and make the eyes appear more open. Second, use darker colours in the crease to define the eye and add depth. Third, use waterproof and long-wearing products to prevent smudging and ensure that your makeup will last all day.

Tips and tricks to keep in mind:

  1. For beginners, invest in a high-quality eye primer.
  2. It's advisable to apply makeup with your eyes open because finding your natural crease with your eyes closed can be tricky.
  3. Apply the eyeshadow directly above your crease, rather than in the natural fold of your eyelid.
  4. If you're going to use false eyelashes, be sure you get the right alignment for your eyes!
  5. Stick to matte colours if you want to minimize your upper brow bone.
  6. Invest in a waterproof mascara.
  7. If you don't have enough space on your eyelids for makeup, shape your brows to create additional space under the brow bone.
  8. Forget the thought that your lovely hooded eyes can't pull off any makeup look!
  9. If you assumed tips for hooded eyes were only for those in their 20s, 30s, or 40s, think again.
  10. Lastly, keep in mind that YouTube is a fantastic resource for any type of makeup you would like to try.
