Are my eyes hooded or deep set?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, 

i have a bit of a problem here. I'm not really sure what shape my eyes are. Either way I don't have a lot of lid to play with, so please help out :) What shape are they and what make up tips can I use?

My number one tip for both - hooded or deep set eyes is to look into the mirror with your eyes open, and indicate where you want the darker crease shadows to appear (use a pencil or you shadow to do so) and then when you tilt your head back and lower your lids to apply, it's easy to see how high up you'd like to take your shadow! Hope it helps xo

Hi there! Your eyes are lovely! (Or at least, the one I can see is :D )


I'm not sure- it looks very slightly hooded. Hardly at all. Not deep-set I don't think, but I'm not a good judge of that.


Basically, just don't ever let anyone touch your brows- they are flawless!

They're hooded. 


As for tips? Look straight into a mirror and figure out where you want to place your crease shadow. You need to lift your lid when you apply your lid shadow, then you need to blend (soften) the top edge out with a highlighter. 


You obviously might need to tilt your head up and lift your lid to see where you need to place your shadow colours, your spacing and for overall symmetry. 


For eyeliner, avoid thick liquid liners, go for a super thin sharp black or any deep colour line into the lash root (matte eye shadow works best) using a thin fine angle brush (MAC 266 as a reference). Your mascara will add to the fullness of the rest of the lash line.


I know this is a quick blurb... but HTH  ;)

    • Yes, it is quite good. Why do you ask this?
    • But what if she CAN'T afford experimenting with different products? That might really make the situation worse and harm her hair even more... Same with home remedies. If your really want to change your hairstyle then hair extension is a good option because you won't damage your hair and scalp. You can actually lookup the tutorials on the web, but videos on Youtube are more descriptive.

    • A man goes to the doctor, concerned about his wife’s hearing. The doctor says, “Stand behind her and say something and tell me how close you are when she hears you.” The man goes home, sees his wife in the kitchen, cutting carrots on the countertop. About 15 feet away he says, “Honey, what’s for dinner?” Nothing. He gets halfway to her and repeats the same question. Nothing. Very concerned, he gets right behind her and asks again “What’s for dinner?” She turns around and says “For the THIRD time, beef stew!”
    • There are a variety of benefits for Orange Essential Oil. I am mentioning some of them: 1. It lifts your mood up and reduce the stress 2. It treats skin conditions like acne 3. It helps with Upset Stomach 4. Can be used as a flavor in food and beverages
