Hooded Eye Trick #2: Wing in Reverse
Rather than starting your wing from the lash line and working your way up, try doing the reverse. Start the tip of your wing where your hooded eye starts. Connect the wing to the rest of your eyeliner with small strokes. Feel free to build your wing wider if you’re trying to amp up your glam for a night out.
Hooded Eye Trick #3: Check Your Work in the Mirror
With hooded eyes, it can be difficult to find your lid’s natural crease with your eyes shut. In order to make sure your eyeliner doesn’t disappear the second you open your eyes, check your work head-on in the mirror. Depending on your preference, you can also create your wing with your eyes open.
Hooded Eye Trick #4: Clean it Up
Keeping makeup wipes or cotton swabs handy is a must with hooded eyes. The lack of lid space means you’re probably prone to smudging your eyeliner. Luckily, a quick swipe of a cotton swab can make your liner look sharp and clean up any makeup mishaps. Pro tip: As a precaution, keep your eyes closed until the liner dries down, and opt for quick-drying formulas like the Maybelline New York Tattoo Studio Sharpenable Gel Pencil Longwear Eyeliner
