Hi, my name is Teresa, and I'm a makeup artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to apply eye shadow to a hooded eye. The tools that we're going to need to achieve this look is an eye shadow brush, a flat concealer brush, eye shadow and more eye shadow. So, how we're going to do this is we are going to take a light eye shadow base and we're going to apply it over the whole eyelid. This is going to allow for our eye to pop out and then later on we're going to add some shadow to give it dimension. So, for hooded eyes, you want to try to make the lid pop out as much as you can. Alright, so after we have our lids prepped, we are going to go in there with our shadow. We don't need a dark shadow we're just going to take like a light brown shadow just to add a crease on the hood of the eye. Then we're going to go down, create a crease, start from the outside eye and go up to create our crease on the hood leaving the light part showing. Go in from the outside of the eye, in towards the tear duct to create our crease and add dimension to our eyes and that is how you apply eye shadow to a hooded eye. And remember the tools that we used to create this look, our eye shadow brush, our flat concealer brush, eye shadow and more eye shadow. Thanks for watching.
