Eyeshadow for Hooded eyes

Celebrating Your Uniqueness

Your eyes are stunning, and your makeup should reflect your confidence. While our six exclusive tips align with expert advice, remember they are not one-size-fits-all. Feel empowered to experiment and, if needed, reach out for personalized guidance.

Our 6 Expert Tips for Hooded Eyes

  1. Primer Perfection: Hooded eyes can sometimes lead to eyeshadow smudging - a common woe. Fear not! Find your ideal primer or priming method. Whether it's concealer or products like MAC Paint Pots, P. Louise Base, or NARS Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base, a good primer sets the stage for flawless eyeshadow application.

  2. Eyeshadow Placement Magic: Understanding where to place eyeshadow is crucial. For hooded eyes, aim slightly above your natural crease. Check out our image guide to visualize this technique, ensuring your eyeshadow shines even when your eyes are open.

  3. Elevate with Tape Technique: Combat the "droopy" appearance by lifting your eyes. Try the classic tape technique or use a makeup wipe to clean up eyeshadow, creating a lifted effect. See our image for a demonstration of how cleaning up the outer corner at an upward angle towards the brow can work wonders.

  4. Styles for Hooded Eyes: Lavoom Approved: Explore eyeshadow styles that complement hooded eyes, such as the classic smokey eye or the alluring halo eye. Our salon's go-to approach involves blending from the darkest shade at the lash line to the lightest shade closer to the brow.

  5. Lashes for an Enchanting Look: Choose lashes that enhance your hooded eyes. While popular styles elongate the outer corner, we find success with lashes that are longest in the center, creating a captivating effect.

  6. Defy Mascara Mishaps with Lavoom's Choice: Long lashes can sometimes result in smudging throughout the day. Fear not - opt for a transfer-proof mascara like Thrive Causemetics Liquid Lash Extensions. This tubing mascara stays put until you decide it's time to take it off.
