Video Tutorial for Hooded Eyes
« on: November 07, 2017, 02:51:17 PM »
Hi everyone.  I know it's been awhile, but I just came across this video on YouTube, and wanted to share it here.  I can't remember when I last wore this much make up, but I think she does a nice job.
What do you think?

I have hooded eyes and, to be honest, can’t imagine applying eye shadow as she demonstrates. It works for her though so I can’t fault her. I just think my eyes are so hooded and lined that her suggested application would end up looking all wrong on me. I actually qualify for blepharoplasty on both eyes (paid by insurance) due to obstruction of vision by my lids. I find myself more and more reluctant to change my appearance surgically as I get older though. So, for me, I think I’ll stick with a light application of a nude shade to even the color of my lids and call it a day. For others, whose eyes aren’t quite so hooded, I think her method is well worth trying!
