Today I’ve got a what are hooded eyes makeup brush demo to share with you. I explain what a hooded eye is and the anatomy of the hooded eye. I talk about the makeup brushes I like to use for applying and blending eyeshadow. I show how to do simple color placement. I share a lot of my tips and tricks in this. I have a separate, shorter video that is just brushes without the tutorial information if you want that. All of the brushes I use are cruelty free and vegan with the exception of the goss brush. I recommend the Urban Decay, Sigma, Real Techniques, Makeup Geek and Kat Von D brushes.
