Hooded Eye Makeup Hacks | Crash Test Beauties

– Do you ever look in the mirror midday and realize that your eyeliner has transferred up to your eyebrows? (slide whistle) Have you ever spent so long on your eyeshadow, only to have it crease up on you? (static) If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have hooded eyes Hi, my name is Kim from Crash Test Beauties, and today me and a few of my hooded eye sisters are going to be testing out a few techniques to see if we can make these hooded eye problems disappear

(light music) – The skin right below your brow bone is lower, right? – Yeah – And it covers up the lid, so if I look straight at you, you can't see my eyelid at all – You don't have a lid space, essentially You kind of have that hood over what your lid space would be coming from your brow bone, so it makes it hard to do like liner and shadow, because you A, don't see it, or B, it gets really smudgy (light music) It's a mystery, really

(laughter) – It's gone – I have to lift up to find it, so then – I see it! – Do you see it now? There it is! (laughs) – Because we have hooded eyes, and this skin is here, it's like our crease is like down to the lashline

I'll have my phone, I'll like follow tutorials, like, "Oh, I love that look!" Or I wanna use a fun color or something And then I'm doing it, and like, "Yeah!" And I look up, and it's like (blows raspberry) – There's so many issues that we come across with creasing, everything blending together No one can see it (light music) We're gonna try this technique, and it involves lines and dots, and it reminds me of high school geometry, and I'm scared

(light music) – I already have like foundation coming off on this – Me too – So next, we're gonna get a napkin, and then we're going to align this with the end of our brow – And you're gonna make a dot right on top of the Yeah Right where your– – Right where your pupil is And then you're just gonna go straight line to the tissue (taps makeup brush) – Oh, I'm scared, okay

– I feel like I'm playing with stencils now (light music) – Don't take this darker shade all the way in And this'll be a test if your brows are the same (laughs) And if the edge of your brow is different – Probably gonna come out different I feel like this lighter shade is really helping to boost – Yeah – To make the eyes look more open – I think it really popped our eyes open – Mm-hmm – I think I would wear this look in the nighttime more

But it was actually really, it was pretty easy, and so simple – Yeah I do think that this technique worked, using straight lines, and applying it in, applying it higher than the "crease," 'cause we don't really have like a visible crease – Yeah – But I'm curious to see if I'm just thinking that

– Yeah, we'll see – Or if other people think Maybe my eyes look bigger? – Yeah, I think is the first time that geometry didn't fail me – Typically, I will open my eye too soon when I'm wearing liquid, and then it will just transfer straight to the top, because it wasn't dry yet

And if I do happen to have the patience to make sure that I keep my eyes closed for long enough, then it transfers within a couple hours Honestly, just especially if I get in the sun, then it just transfers right away, 'cause I start to get oily – With eyeliner, I feel like it constantly transfers I always find another, like, it looks like another eyeliner right above it If I wear it thick, it smudges

If I wear it thin, you can't see it (laughs) – So basically, you just can't win (light music) Let's try this (plastic packaging rustling) I don't know much I need – This is big – Oh yeah, think you have a big eye Little do they know you have hoods You just buffing it with your finger? – Yeah

Use your ring finger – Oh, ring finger, so no wrinkles – Yeah, it kind of brightens it up even more – You know, my lids look really bright – Cheers! (pens click together) (laughter) Well, my lines don't look like twins, but they kind of look like

– The fact that you have two is very impressive This makes a big difference – Maybe we should go out after this

– To the farmer's market for pupusas? – To the farmer's market, yeah! I'll take a watermelon and a compliment – And a compliment And there's no transfer in mine, what about you? – Yeah, nothing on mine yet, but let's see how it goes throughout the day – Yeah, we'll check back – So, halfway through the workday, I just got done with lunch, and I walked to the farmer's market today, so I was out in the sun sweating, and surprisingly it didn't mess up my eyeliner

I don't know what's going on, but as you can see, maybe the tricks are actually working What do you think of my eyeshadow? – Your eyeshadow is stunning – Do you think it makes my eyes look a little – A little brighter, a littler opener – Bigger maybe? – A little open, is that a word? – I like that – It totally opened up your eyes

– All right, it's time for my midday checkup So far so good Look I took a walk, and I was really hot outside There was a lot of sweat involved, and it stayed put, so let's see how it lasts for the rest of the day

– So it's towards the end of the day, and this eyeshadow did not budge I am so happy with it It didn't crease at all, which is awesome, and I really think that primer and loose-setting powder really worked, I think that combo really did the trick – So I've had the eyeshadow on for about eight hours It's eight o'clock right now

But this one is really going strong, it's persevering, there's no creasing, the color's pretty much the same This one struggled a little bit, it does have some creasing, but no change in color I think it may be because I was touching it Definitely gonna keep prepping with the primer and the translucent powder Think it worked

Success, yay! – It's now nine o'clock, I've spent the whole day basically from 10 am 'til now with the eyeliner, and I think it held up really, really well Let's see There's literally like almost no transfer, it stayed in place, the only places that have a little transfer's like right here, but honestly like I'm good with that

It's very minimal compared to what I'm used to But overall, I think it was really successful Yay! – So I just finished yoga, it's about nine pm And surprisingly, my eyeliner is still going strong again

There's a little bit of the rub-off here at the top, but honestly, not much at all I'm really surprised I think that the reason why is because I used the setting powder and the primer, because this has never happened to me before Normally it would be a hot mess, I would look like a clown So I'm actually really impressed with the way that the setting powder and primer works, and I think I'm gonna start doing this more often, because this is crazy
