-Use a liquid eyeliner pen to draw on your cat eye shape. This will help keep everything looking smooth and even as you’re drawing out your lines. We recommend [product name].

-Use an angled brush to blend shadow into the lower part of your eyelid, so that it looks like there’s more color underneath your eyes than just skin. This is easy to do once you get used to using an angled brush, but if this is new territory for you, make sure not to go too far into the corner of your eye—just add some shadow enough so that it disappears into its natural crease (that’s where hooded eyes have their natural folds).

Cat eye makeup for hooded eyes

You know if you have hooded eyes if 1) every time you put on eyeliner it transfers to the top of your eyelid and 2) even the thinnest eyeliner make your whole lid look black. You also don’t have a very visible crease. Jennifer Lawrence, for example, has hooded eyes. 

Just like with monolids, hooded eyes come with its own set of makeup struggles. That’s why we love beauty vlogger Kate Carter’s cat eye tutorial. Kate has hooded eyes so she’s developed a trick that will probably work for you, too. 

First, she takes liquid eyeliner and draws a really thin line on her top lash line. She notes that it’s important to start in the middle and work towards the outer corner of your eyes, doing the inner part last. That’s because you want only a little bit of product on your brush, or it’ll be too thick. Hooded eyes have a very small area to work with so you want to get the line super thin. 


Once you have a thin line, you can start the wing. Kate likes to just follow her lower lash line up, since that will probably be the wing shape that will fit your eye the best.

You can use tape if you want a really precise line but you don’t have to. Just remove most of the product off the brush, and follow your lower lash line up and out. Use really tiny, feathery flicks. You can always go back in and clean it up. 

Then, draw a line in towards the middle of your eyelid. With hooded eyes, you want to really go about 1/4 of the way in. Fill in the wing. 

After finishing both eyes, Kate applies false lashes because she loves how they hide any tiny errors you might have made. You can also just use mascara, of course.
