Let's not call them hooded eyes!

Is it just me, or does the label "hooded eyes" sound like an old-lady problem? When we speak of facial features or eye makeup, let's not say that anymore. Let's call them Scandinavian/Asian eyes, since you see them a lot in those populations. Or we could call them Blake Lively eyes, since she has them. And she's not exactly an old lady!

Blake Lively eyes make for all kinds of interesting challenges with eye makeup, but first we have to appreciate the beauty of this kind of eye. It's not a problem to solve, it's just a unique canvas for playing with makeup. And if your eyes started getting this way later in life, you have lots of company, both young and old.

Coming soon, some examples of eye makeup techniques to try!
