Now with the question of how to apply eyeliner with hooded eyes, the struggle is real.
You know you have hooded eyes when the skin of the brow bone folds over that of the socket which creates a hood over the area. This hood overlaps the eye end area which results in eyeliner being covered. And we can’t have that now, can we! When you spend a large chunk of time with surgeon-like precision tracking your eyeliner, the world deserves to see it in all its glory!
Enter the makeup technique that will change hooded eyes forever; the floating eyeliner makeup trick. If you’re a hooded eyed hottie who has battled with your winged eyeliner as it isn’t revealing its true potential, we feel you. The process of floating eyeliner is carried out in a way which looks like the eyeliner is floating but comes together to create a stunning winged eye and here’s how…
Start backwards looking straight and keeping your eye partly closed so that the hood aligns itself. Use your eyeliner to trace a single line perpendicular to your brow bone until the end of your upper lash line. The Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist Eyeliner is a great choice but maximum ease, use the Lakmé Absolute Precision Liquid Liner.
Then start at the same point where you began your previous line. Draw a slanted line with your eyeliner inwards until the middle of your lash line.
Go over the already drawn lined to make sure you have precise lines and fill them in to ensure no bare spots are seen.
Staying close to your lash line, trace your eyeliner from the inner portion of your lash line to the midst of it where your previous line ended.
Finally, trace over any shaky lines to ensure that you have a razor sharp winged eyeliner that has maximum impact while looking fantastic!
