Hooded eyes

As people age, saggy eyelids and hooded eyes become common complaints. Initially, you may notice your eyeliner smearing onto your brow bone and eyeshadow appearing to vanish into creases and folds. This occurs because the space between your eyebrows and eyelids decreases as you age, causing excess skin to crease and fold over the lids, potentially making them appear smaller or even completely disappear. While ageing is the primary cause, some individuals may have hooded eyes due to genetics or ethnicity. Keep reading for answers to frequently asked questions about hooded eyes.

When it comes to applying makeup to hooded eyes, there are several online tutorials available. One of the main challenges is dealing with folds of skin that obscure the eyelid, making it tricky to apply eyeliner or eyeshadow without smudging or transferring onto the upper lid. To tackle this, using a primer can be incredibly helpful. It keeps the makeup in place and prevents smearing. Additionally, opting for waterproof mascara is a wise choice. Another valuable tip is to enhance the lower eye by applying eyeliner to the lower lid and using white eyeliner to make the eyes pop and appear more open. Lastly, don’t forget about the brows! Enhancing the brows can also contribute to creating a more open and captivating look for the eyes.

Many beautiful celebrities have hooded eyes or minimal visible lids. Just take a look at Gemma Chan, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Blake Lively, and Katie Leung.
