Hooded eyes: the 411
Hooded eyes have a crease with a prominent brow bone. As the skin of the brow bone conceals the crease of the eye, the full eyelid isn’t completely visible when the eye is open. Many of us are born with hooded eye shapes, but over time, age and loss of skin elasticity can result in different eye shapes such as almond eyes and deep set eyes taking on a more hooded appearance over time.
Which lashes shall I wear?
Hooded eyes give us sultry vibes – so make the most of them! Wearing the wrong type of lashes can really pull hooded eyes down, making them appear a lot smaller than they really are. Some of the best lashes for hooded eyes curl directly above the pupil to really open the eye at the centre, but you can also opt for fluffy-looking lashes that taper out slightly on the ends. Enhance your look by picking styles that feature a wispy mix of longer and shorter lashes to create the illusion of depth.
