Hope you are well.
So, as you do before you are about to have your evening shower I started playing with my make-up.
I wanted to try a new technique that I thought might help to get a perfect winged eyeliner on my hooded eyes.
If you have hooded eyes you will know what I mean. If you do not have hooded eyes then you are a lucky one!
Hooded eyes are a pain! Seriously. It's not a case of wanting what I don't have; they are probably the worst eye shape there is. Fact!
I always have to create a crease and I always have to make more effort to make a make-up look show.
But I think I discovered my solution for winged liner!
It basically consists of creating a vertical line on the outside of the crease. Then you need to make that line touch your crease horizontally and then create a parallel line down.
See the second photo above and you can see what I mean.
It might look a bit too Lady Gagaish and too graphic but if you have hooded eyes people will only see the "inside" only when you blink and probably 90% of the time it will look like a winged liner.
I absolutely love this technique. It is quit a dramatic look because winged liner on hooded eyes need to be a bit more graphic to create that illusion.
I need to perfect it on my left eye- still not 100% perfect.

I really should credit the person who put this technique out there for me and that is Siobhan!
She didn't necessarily called it or intended it for hooded eyes (I think) but this really helps me.
I absolutely love her! I have been following her since I can remember. I was lucky that I discovered her earlier in her make-up journey so I witnessed how she perfected her techniques and how she showed the world how to do it. Her reviews are also so honest! She is based in Ireland and she is a full time make-up artist. Thanks Siobhan!
