Eyeshadow for Hooded Eyes

Yesterday, I followed a makeup tutorial by @gossmakeupartist . He is a fantastic makeup artist with easy to follow tutorials that your thirty something girl like me can follow and recreate. You should totally go give him a follow!


I have hooded eyes. Yes, it’s true. I have a lot of eyelid space, but you can hardly ever see the shadow I put on because the lids are deeply set. The tutorial I followed was for hooded eyes and I’m so excited about how it turned out. I may try to recreate it on stories in real time so that you can see how I followed Wayne’s instructions.

I used just a few products and tools for my recreation. It wasn’t hard – it was so much fun! It didn’t take a ton of time, and I think it will take me less time as I understand what to do now and I was just learning before.


These are the products used:

1. A matte brown eyeshadow – I used this one called Prowl in the Armed and Gorgeous palette by Morphe X Jaclyn Hill

2. A shimmer highlight shade – I used VIP in the same palette

3. A black eyeliner – I really like this one by Bobbi Brown in Jet

4. A few small brushes and a blending brush. There was a lot of blending going on. I used a few from Morphe.  These are some of my favs to pack on color, to blend, and more blending!

5. An eyelash curler – because I can’t live without one!

6. Mascara – Voluminous Lash Paradise is a go-to for me by Loreal Makeup

I love how this turned out and what I’ve learned! Can’t wait to do it again!


Wishing you all the bright fireflies,
