Simple Glamorous Look for Heavy Hooded Eyes

You might think if you have heavy hooded eyes or any type of hooded eyes that eyeshadow application is different.  It really isn’t, just the end look may be different from the so-called “ideal” eye shape.  Personally, I like hooded eyes because not only do I have them, but they have their own unique shape which brings a different perspective to how eyeshadow should look.

A Naturally Beautiful Eye Look

I have discovered the popular eyeshadow tutorials on this blog are the ones which enhance your natural beauty.  I think this is great because everyone should embrace their own unique beauty and what better way than to make your eyes stand out with just the right amount of color and improvement.

The Fab Four Eyeshadows Tutorial on Hooded eyes Which Also Works on All Eye Shapes

*Tutorial is just for entertainment purposes.*


I don't mean to do my tutorials on hooded eyes but I was playing around with Kim's beautiful eyes with the Fab Four palette and thought many of you would be curious as to how it would look on.  Also, knowing that many and, I mean, many of you with hooded eyes would like a natural or even polished neutral look.  I thought this tutorial would help.  Remember, these eyeshadows are what gives the bare minimum of color to the eyes, yet they will define and contour with such subtlety that no one will know you are wearing eyeshadows!

How to Make Mature Hooded Eyes Stand Out

*Just a tutorial and nothing more.*


Out of all the posts I put on this blog, the most people look at are the hooded eyes posts.  Whether the hood begins to lower with age or if you were born with them, eyeshadow application is the number one conundrum.  It doesn't have to be because the bone structure is the same with all eye shapes, just knowing how to properly enhance them takes a little practice.

5 Minute Eyeshadow Application for Any Eye Shape

*Nothing to disclose except my (in)sanity.*


This eyeshadow tutorial works on any eye shape from monolids to deep set eyes.  The fast and easy application will also give the eyes the illusion of contour and depth without the excess guidelines like scotch tape and/or that business card to hold at the angle.  After all, you only have two hands and applying eyeshadow on oneself is sometimes an act of a contortionist.  In this tutorial all you need is your eyes' bone structure as your guide.  The only rule (recommendation) is a matte contour shadow.  This is probably the most important eyeshadow.  Just remember a brown-tone eyeshadow at least two shades darker than your natural skin tone.  Two shades will just give the most natural and no-makeup crease; the darker you go the more depth it will give under heavy lighting.

The Fast Neutral Eye Look Inspired by the TV Show the Arrow

to see the show go to CW.com
I am a major fan of the Arrow, not only do I enjoy watching Oliver Queen and John Diggle run on pure testosterone.  I enjoy looking at the makeup.  Yes, as a makeup addict, as you know, I am influenced by the beauty on tv and film.  The last tutorial, Skyfall, was a bit difficult but this one isn't.  In fact, it is fast and easy since it is an eye look made for a tv show which hardly gets much time to spare when it comes to makeup application.  So, if you want a look that has depth and definition and is wearable anywhere.  Go for this look.

Sultry Smoky Eyes

Images from the movie Skyfall
I know I am late to the game in doing a tutorial on Skyfall, but I wanted to make sure it suited my mature eyes.  In other words, like the movie the application had to look 3D.  It had to give depth and dimension while looking sultry.  Is it easy to do? Well, I can't say this tutorial is for the fast and easy smoky eye look but everything in this tutorial has been covered in my past posts.  With some practice and patience, I am sure you can achieve the same look too.  Let's get on with the tutorial.

Shading the Eyes or Separating the Eyes from the Rest of the Face


It has been a long time coming for this tutorial but to tell you the truth it is hard to do a tutorial using oneself in real time.  In other words it is so much easier to just photoshop the steps, but I decided to show you on my mature eyes how shading the eyes work.

I have eliminated the steps on what products have been used.  I will just mention what colors I have used.  I will also leave out the details of how I did my winged liner and such because I covered that many times in many posts.

Want Revenge? Makeup Tutorial Inspired by the Character Emily Thorne


This is another tutorial inspired by the television show Revenge.  A show not only is a great weekly drama, but a great show with great makeup.  The last tutorial was about Victoria Grayson the manipulative bitch who had an affair with David Clarke.  This tutorial is about another manipulative woman Emily Thorne (born Amanda Clarke), daughter of David Clarke.  Emily looks so sweet and innocent but underneath that exterior lies a woman as manipulative as Victoria.  As you can see, Emily Thorne has hooded eyes and I figured the best model for this tutorial would be Lisa from Beauty Info Zone.

Reader Request-Going from Weekend, Daytime, to Night Time Eyes Easily


For this tutorial Lisa from Beauty Info Zone has volunteered.  Give her a round of applause!


In this tutorial I hope you can see how to define, divide, and conquer!  Watch as Lisa's eyes go from a basic weekend to professional daytime to an alluring and seductive night time eye look with just little changes.  Knowing the basics of eyeshadow and what little changes can do can make the biggest difference in the look of the eyes as a whole.  Hopefully, this tutorial can open your eyes (pun) and paint a clearer picture of past tutorials.

Glamming Up Hooded Eyes Using Lancome Les Gris L'Wren Palette


Borrowing Jane's picture of the Lancome L'Wren Gris palette ($42USD) which I thank her for.  Please be aware that the colors for the tutorial aren't exact since I don't have the actual palette.  When I saw this palette and Jane's eyes, all I could think about was Eva Green's character Vesper in James Bond Casino Royale.  This will be a variation of Vesper's smoky eyes.
