It’s time to break it down for hooded eyes.
We’ve created these custom looks for each shape to show you how to get the most of your
gorgeous eyes with our new amazing full exposure palette.
There’s a look for day, one for night and a defined look for
each shape. for today I’m going to show you how to create a night look, which is really
the most dramatic of all three looks. Hooded eyes are so sultry and smoldering already,
all you really need to do to play them up is just enhance the visible lid space. So,
that’s what I’m going to walk you through right now.
I’ve already prepped my model with 24 hour photo finish shadow primer. This is the latest
new lid primer and it’s amazing. Be sure to keep an eye out for it.
It really does lock on color for a full 24 hours. First, to give the eyes more prominence,
apply a light shade to the brow bone and inner corner.
Really you can use any light shade but for this particular look I’m using M4. This bit
of subtle highlighting goes a long way for your shape.
The light shade really brightens and opens up your eyes even more. Apply a medium shade
across the lid blending upward and above the crease. I’m using M2.
YOu wanna stick to a medium shade for hooded eyes when applying across the entire lid,
because using a dark shadow could make your lid seem a bit too heavy.
And this is all about making the most of your sultry stunning shape. Finally, line the upper
lash line with the dark matte shade diffusing upwards at the outer corner for
added definition. I’m going to use M1 for this. Blending upward is key here. This will
actually blend your eyes up and make them appear even more open, which creates the illusion
of having big bright eyes. Finish the eyes with two coats of full exposure
mascara. Don’t forget to give a little love to those outer lashes. This will really open
up your shape for a perfect wide eyed look. Finish the look with a bit of halo long wear
blush in warm glow and a swipe of Be Legendary lipstick in Primrose. This look is all about
enhancing the eye shape so you really want to keep your lips and your cheeks more neutral.
So you’ve got this gorgeous look that you can wear anywhere, but maybe sometimes you
want to mix things up a bit. Enter always sharp liners. It’s so easy to change up a
look with just a little liner. I showed you a really awesome just everyday
look, now we’re gonna take it to the next level. We’re going to do more of. I think
it’s a little more edgy and a little more editorial.
I’m going to apply a drop shadow. I’m going to be using the 3D always sharp in Sparks.
I love a drop shadow on a hooded eye because it really plays up how naturally sultry these
eyes are and it really gives you that sexy look so many people want.
