Every client’s eyes are unique, so it’s important that you take the time to learn how to apply eyelash extensions on hooded eyes. After all, what works on one person isn’t necessarily ideal for the next. Being able to adapt your lash extensions and your technique to each client takes experience and a little know-how. As always, Yegi Beauty is here to help you every step of the way! 

What Are Hooded Eyes?

When someone has a bit of extra skin that folds down from their brow bone and covers the upper eyelids while their eyes are open naturally, they have hooded eyelids. Sometimes hooded eyes are caused by aging, but they can also be genetic. The right eyelash extensions for hooded eyes can help to make the client’s eyes appear larger and more open.

How to Choose and Apply Extensions

To accentuate hooded eyes, it’s usually best to choose lightweight, wispy, and curly lashes that are appropriate for the client’s face. If their natural eyelashes point downwards, a D or L curl should work nicely. In general, LD, L, and L+ curls are often most flattering for hooded eyes. To achieve a volume style, we recommend our Yegi Mink (Vegan) Lashes in 0.05 thickness. For a classic style, the Yegi Mink (Vegan) Lashes in either .12 thickness or .15 thickness are your best bet.

In most cases, you’ll want to apply the longest lashes to the middle of the eyes and most of the outer corner to create a winged effect. Reserve approximately 10% off the remaining outer corner for short and medium-length lashes. If the client has wide-set eyes, you may want to apply more of the longer lashes towards the inner corner to fill the gap.

Quality Matters

When selecting eyelash extensions for hooded eyes, it’s especially important to use professional lashes from a reputable brand. After all, if someone with a unique eye shape is trusting you to beautify their eyes, you want them to be delighted with the results. Additionally, because applying eyelash extensions on hooded eyes requires a slightly different approach, you need to be 100% confident in your supplies.
