Hi everyone. Today, I have a super simple eyeshadow hack to show you that is perfect for hooded eyes and for ladies who are a little bit older.

This eyeshadow hack is great for lifting the entire face. You’re bound to fall in love with this easy trick! Let’s get started.

Tools and materials:

  • Post-it note
  • Brown eyeshadow
  • Eyeshadow brush
Post-it note

1. Hold a post-it note to the outer corner of your eye

This will create a nice, sharp diagonal line.

2. Apply brown eyeshadow

Use the post-it note as a stencil to create a winged eyeshadow look.

Thanks to the post-it note, you can’t go wrong! As long as you keep it tight against the skin, you’ll be left with a lovely sharp line.


3. Blend

To soften the eyeshadow, blend it out with a fluffy eyeshadow brush.
