UNDERSTANDING HOODED EYES

These eye shapes require careful attention and precise lash placement to create the illusion of depth, lift, and definition.

With the client looking straight at you, you want to map out and identify the area of the eye where the hood is more prominent, then you will want to have the client close her eyes and transfer the map over to the patches.

❌ Do NOT map out this map with the eyes closed, because the hood will shift when the client closes their eyes.

If you're unsure whether your client has hooded eyes, there are a few key signs to look for. 

  • Excess skin on the upper eyelid: Hooded eyes are characterized by an additional layer of skin that hangs from the brow bone and covers a portion of the upper eyelid. This can result in a smaller-looking lid and create a hooded appearance.
  • Concealed or minimized crease: Hooded eyes may still possess a crease, but it is often less prominent due to the presence of excess skin. The natural crease can be partially or entirely covered, making it less visible.
  • Perception of smaller eyes: The excess skin can give the impression of smaller eyes, as it diminishes the visible lid space. This can create an illusion of narrower eyes and reduced openness.
  • Challenges with the lash application: The application techniques may pose difficulties for hooded eyes. The excess skin can interfere with proper lash placement and impact the desired lash look.

CORRECT LASH STYLING FOR HOODED EYES: ENHANCING THE EYE OPENING EFFECT

As a lash artist, one of the key aspects of our craft is to enhance the natural beauty of our client's eyes. When it comes to hooded eyes, understanding the proper lash styling techniques is essential to create an eye-opening effect. Let me give tips on the correct lash styling recommendations for hooded eyes, including the ideal lengths and curl types to achieve stunning results.

( For this example, you can use a 7-12mm volume set dark brown D curl. The dark brown is going to compliment the client's eyes. The volume set will give her enough of the lifting effect and will not be too overwhelming for the length. )



Opt For Longer Lengths:

For clients with hooded eyes, opting for longer lash lengths is crucial to create the desired eye-opening effect. Longer lengths help to elongate the lashes and draw attention away from the hooded area. ( refer to the above image )

 

Choose D, L, And L+ Curls:

Regarding curl types, it's essential to go for more dramatic options to open up hooded eyes. D curl, also known as dramatic curl, provides a noticeable lift and helps counteract the heaviness of the hooded lid. L curls, or L+ curls, are also excellent choices, as they have a sweeping effect that creates a beautiful curvature. These curl types give the illusion of more open and lifted eyes, making them ideal for hooded eye clients.

( Here’s an L curl wispy lash set in a hooded eyes client. L curl has unique curvature that helps open up the eyes and create a lifted effect. L and M curls are the ideal choices for clients with hooded eyes. These curls have a natural lifting effect that helps to open up and enhance the shape of hooded eyes, creating a more awakened and defined look. )

 

By strategically applying L and M curl lashes, lash artists can create a stunning and a natural-looking lift, enhancing the beauty of hooded eyes.

 

Strategic Placement For Definition:

To further enhance the eye shape, consider strategic lash placement. Concentrate on adding more volume and length. This tip will help create the illusion of a lifted and elongated eye shape. You can effectively counterbalance the hooded effect and draw attention to the outer corners, creating a more defined and captivating look.

INCORRECT STYLING OF HOODED EYES: WHAT TO AVOID FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS

Proper lash styling for hooded eyes is crucial to create a flattering and eye-opening effect. However, certain mistakes in lash applications can lead to underwhelming results. Let me discuss three common errors to avoid when styling hooded eyes.

Avoid Using Natural Curls (B and C Curls):

Using extensions with extremely natural curls, such as B and C curls, is not recommended for hooded eyes. These curls lack the necessary lifting effect to combat the hooded lid. Instead, opt for lashes with a more noticeable curl, such as C, D, or L and L+ curls. These curlier options lift the appearance, opening the eyes and counteracting the hooded effect.

 

Avoid Using Lengths That Are Too Short (6-11mm):

When it comes to lash length, it's essential to strike a balance. While shorter lengths can be suitable for some eye shapes, using too short lashes for hooded eyes can further emphasize the hooded effect and make the eyes appear smaller. Instead, opt for longer lengths, such as 8-13mm, or even slightly longer, depending on the health of your client's natural lashes.

 

Natural Mapping Can Be Underwhelming:

While natural mapping is a popular choice for many lash applications, it may not be the most effective approach for hooded eyes. Natural mapping typically follows the natural lash line, resulting in a softer and less dramatic look. However, hooded eyes require strategic placement of longer lashes towards the middle and outer corners to create the illusion of lift and definition. Avoid relying solely on natural mapping for hooded eyes and instead consider mapping techniques that emphasize the outer corners and make a more lifted appearance.

 

Lash artists can enhance the natural beauty of hooded eyes by avoiding these incorrect styling practices and opting for more pronounced curls, appropriate lengths, and strategic mapping techniques. Providing clients with flattering and eye-opening lash looks will leave them confident and satisfied with the results.

Cat Mapping For Hooded Eyes

The cat eye lash map is a classic choice that beautifully complements hooded eyes. This style focuses on elongating the outer corners of the eyes, creating a lifted and winged effect. The eyes appear wider and more lifted by strategically placing longer lashes towards the outer corners and gradually tapering them towards the inner corners.

Be cautious to make sure the hood of the clients eyelid is actually in the outer corners, as opposed if you want to use this style . If the area of the hood is closer to the middle it may be safer to use a doll eye map.

Doll Lash Mapping For Hooded Eyes 

The doll lash style is another fantastic option for enhancing hooded eyes. This style emphasizes the center of the lash line, making the eyes appear larger and more open. The eyes take on a doll-like, doe-eyed appearance by using longer lashes in the middle portion of the lash line and slightly shorter ones towards the outer and inner corners. This is a fantastic style especially when the area of the hood is towards the middle of the eye, since the doll eye map will conceal the hooded effect.
