As soon as you are introduced to make-up as a pre-teen, you may find yourself slightly obsessed with eyeliner and all the styles that are out there with it. There are all different shapes of eyes such as round, almond and hooded. So does winged eyeliner ‘work’ on all eye shapes? The answer is yes! No matter the size, shape even colour of your eyes there is always a look to suit you.
Simple Winged Eyeliner for Hooded Eyes
This is a simple technique for hooded eyes. The purpose of a winger eyeliner is to lift the shape of the eye, you can try this for an everyday, casual look. If you apply winged eyeliner with the traditional technique when you have hooded eyes, it may not come out the way you want it to, it may look awkward when your eyes are in a resting position.
Bat Wing Eyeliner for Hooded Eyes
This is a more dramatic look for some people but you can also use this as a daily look for your hooded eyes. The ‘Bat Wing’ is a great technique for those with hooded eyes! With this look, you use your upper lid crease as a guide to creating the wing instead of using your waterline as the guideline. If you use your waterline as you do for round eyes, it will make your eyes look droopy and may make you look older, which is not the look we are going for.
The trick is to follow your natural eye line and crease to create your own personal look for your eye. Also with eye shadows, it’s best to avoid shimmery shades all over the lid as that will highlight your hooded eyes. For best results use Matte looks and darker shades on the outer corners. The great thing about hooded eyes is that they are perfect for a smokey eye look.
Never think that hooded eyes are unattractive because they are beautiful and a unique feature; the trick is to find a look that will enhance that unique beauty. With a little bit of practice and watching tutorials, you’ll be a master at eyeliner in no time! There are so many resources out there to help you get the look you desire such as; Pinterest, YouTube and many more. Love and embrace your hooded eyes and find what works for you.
