Knowing Your Eyes Shape - Hooded Eyes

Gracie Shaw

As a makeup artist, I get asked beauty questions on a daily basis.
The most common questions and comments involve eye makeup.

"I don't wear eye makeup because I don't know where to put it"
"I don't know how far to go up with the shadow"
"sometimes I apply eye shadow and then I open my eye and can't see it"
"I don't know how to put makeup on my eyes because my lid isn't that big"

Chances are, you have hooded eyes, just like me!
Look no further than the videos below. They will change your eye makeup game.
