Hooded eyes can be pretty difficult to get perfect makeup looks on. I personally have been trying for years to get a completely straight wing or a shadow that doesn’t smudge. However, I’ve compiled a list of ideas that have helped me and might help you make your eye makeup journey a little easier!
This fun eye look uses glistening light pinks over the lid and a curved line of star stickers above. It’s super trendy at the moment and very easy to replicate on hooded eyes as there are no definite lines to draw. The glitter eyeshadow is great for those new to makeup as it’s subtle yet messy and the line of stars are a cute addition. Soft makeup is big in fashion right now, and this look really leans into the trend.
This look has a splatter effect with an illusion of black eyeliner and gold eyeshadow. It’s applied with a fan brush, which creates that splashed effect which is great if you’re looking for a bold statement look, and these colours complement each other to create an elegant tone for the makeup. As makeup on hooded eyes can be difficult to keep neat, this design is great as the idea is to be messy, and is brilliant for new users.
This look features a simple black eyeliner with a curve over the lid and a light smoky look to follow the line. You can easily add this look to your work attire as it’s super adaptable to your everyday eyeliner, and is great if you just need a little extra from your makeup. The curve over the eyelid works wonders for hooded eyes as there’s no worry about keeping the lines straight over the crease, and the eyeliner in the corner elongates the eye for that elegant look.
This makeup is made with eyeshadows of browns, oranges, and a light caramel shimmer to highlight. The eyeliner is made using eyeshadow which makes it a lot easier for hooded eyes as it’s less defined as liquid liner, and the shadow makes it extra smoky. This look is great for any occasion as it works excellently with any fashion style, and the gold shine under the eye really uplifts the look to suit the style.
This look keeps the eyeliner pretty basic with just a simple straight line but uses a deep red instead of black and a gold glitter eyeshadow over the top. This style is super versatile as it’s great for casual get-togethers and fun nights out and can be vamped up or down for any occasion. The eyeliner is slightly smoky, so there’s no fuss in getting a crisp, clean line over the lid and the shades of orange really add to this autumn look.
Here is a double eyeliner look with contrasting black and white colours and simple, straight angles at both ends of the eye. This style is pretty easy to master and looks super simple yet has a bold impact with the monochrome colours. It’s adaptable too, by changing the colours to something more to your style, and adds an extra trendy layer to your look. The curves stay clear of the hooded crease, which saves the hassle of trying to match the lines up.
This Halloween look is a complex black and orange spider web under the eye with a simple black liner above to accentuate the web. This is particularly fitting for October parties and trick-or-treating as it’s spooky enough to emphasise your Halloween look but also relaxed enough not to overpower the style. It also does wonders for hooded eyes as no liner or shadow goes over the crease, only a simple stroke over the top line.
This glittery look is done with green and red shadow around the corners of the eye, and a bright gold glitter in the centre. Both red and green shadows are slightly smoky, which helps make the gold shadow so prominent in the style, as without the smoke it is less vibrant. This design is superb for Christmas parties or gatherings, and will definitely impress your friends, as well as the glitter and smoke shadows being super easy to replicate for hooded eyes.
