Best Lashes For Hooded Eyes: A Guide to Styling with Lashes

Hooded eyes, characterised by a deep crease and excess skin near the brow area, present a unique canvas for makeup enthusiasts. This eye shape often conceals much, if not all, of the eyelid or crease, giving the appearance of heavy eyelids. Whether you're born with hooded eyelids or develop them over time, understanding how to enhance this feature can elevate your makeup game to new heights.

Identifying Hooded Eyes

Do you struggle with excess skin on your upper eyelid, leading to smudged eye makeup and difficulty achieving a crisp eyeliner look? If so, you may have hooded eyes. Hooded eyes vary in appearance, ranging from pronounced drooping with significant skin folding to less visible eyelids when open. To determine if you have hooded eyes, examine your eyes straight on in a mirror. If you can't see much of your eyelid or notice skin folding over the lid, you likely have hooded eyes. Additionally, watch for:

- A subtle or absent eyelid crease.

- Eyes appearing smaller or more closed.

- Challenges with traditional eyeliner styles, such as winged liner.

Understanding your eye shape is the first step toward mastering makeup techniques tailored to enhance your natural features, and with hooded eyes, strategic lash application can make all the difference. Stay tuned for expert tips on styling hooded eyes with magnetic lashes!

Why Lash Selection Matters for Hooded Eyes

Choosing the right lash can significantly impact the appearance of hooded eyes. Since hooded eyes can appear heavy, it's essential to select lashes that create the illusion of lifted and awakened eyes. Opting for the correct lash style can elevate your overall look by enhancing the natural shape of your eyes without weighing them down further. Instead of accentuating the downward slope often associated with hooded eyes, the goal is to open up the eyes with strategically placed lashes.

When it comes to selecting the ideal lash style for hooded eyes, two options stand out: Dolly and Squirrel lashes. These styles are renowned for their natural, eye-opening effect, making them perfect for hooded eyes. Dolly lashes feature longer strands focused in the middle of the eyes, while Squirrel lashes taper longer just off-centre before tapering back down on the ends.

Additionally, consider opting for a C-Curl lash. This moderate curl offers a natural lift, perfect for hooded eyes. By opening up the eyes without appearing overly dramatic, the C-Curl complements the hooded eye shape beautifully, creating a refreshed and lifted appearance.
