Winged liner is a classic look, but it can be tricky for those with hooded eyes. This guide provides tips and tricks for mastering eyeliner for hooded eyes.

If you have hooded eyes, you may find it challenging to achieve the perfect winged eyeliner look. But don't worry, with the right techniques and products, you can create a stunning winged liner that complements your unique eye shape. This guide will provide you with tips and tricks to help you master eyeliner for hooded eyes.

Understand Your Eye Shape.

Before you start applying eyeliner, it's important to understand your eye shape. Hooded eyes have a fold of skin that droops over the crease, making the eyelid appear smaller. This can make it difficult to create a winged liner that is visible when your eyes are open. To make the most of your eye shape, focus on creating a wing that follows the natural curve of your eyelid and extends slightly upwards towards your brow bone.

Choose the Right Eyeliner Formula.

When it comes to eyeliner for hooded eyes, the formula you choose can make a big difference. Look for a formula that is long-lasting and smudge-proof to prevent transfer onto your hooded lid. Gel and liquid formulas tend to work best for creating a sharp wing, but if you prefer a softer look, a pencil liner can also work well. Experiment with different formulas to find the one that works best for you and your eye shape.


Prep your Eyes.

Before applying any eye makeup, it is really important to blot away any natural skin oil or eye or face cream off your eyelids. We love to use this Geisha Blotting Paper. Next, use a soft face brush like a kabuki brush to apply a light dusting of face powder over the lids. Before applying any eyeliner, you should apply your eyeshadow but if eyeliners tend to smear easily on you, I would suggest you stay away from cream based shadows.


Create a Winged Liner Look That Works for You.

Winged liner is a classic makeup look that can add drama and definition to any eye shape. However, for those with hooded eyes, creating a winged liner can be a bit more challenging. The key is to adapt the wing to your eye shape and find the right formula and technique that works for you. With a little practice and experimentation, you can create a winged liner look that flatters your hooded eyes and enhances your natural beauty.


I look forward to hearing how the above have helped your winged liner application. For those with oily and hooded lid, I hope our eyeliners will also solve all your eye makeup issues. Many of our clients said their eyeliner have never stayed on this well before.


Take good care!
