...I decided to recreate this dramatic look into something wearable for hooded eyes! It's somewhere between a simple winged eyeliner and a bold cat-eye. I used liquid liner for this look as it was what I had on hand, however gel eyeliner with a fine tip brush would probably be the best products for creating this look as it's long lasting and dark. Alternatively, you can use a creamy kohl pencil and then layer a matte black eyeshadow on top for staying power.

I've already applied a base and a translucent powder to my face. Use your primer on your lids if you have one!
Start by drawing the 'wings' of the eyeliner. Do this by drawing a small line that follows up from the outside corner of your bottom lash line.
Draw a line from where your crease ends to the line you drew before to create a true wing.
Keep your eyes open and draw along your crease. You can choose to draw this all the way into the inner corner or stop 3/4 of the way in.
Fill in your lid with your liquid liner/gel liner/kohl pencil.
I cleaned up the look and sharpened the edges with a q-tip dipped in make-up remover. Apply a matte black eyeshadow over the top of the eyeliner to make it dark and give staying power.
That's it! I added a highlight into my inner corners, filled in my brows, added blush, mascara and some lipstick to complete the look.
Simple, no? Please give this tutorial a try if you've got hooded lids too! Good luck!
