Christmas Eve EOTD

As someone who has very hooded eyes, I sometimes get frustrated at the fact that there are many eyeshadow styles & techniques that I feel simply don't suit my eye shape! I am still finding out what works and what doesn't (I highly, highly recommend that everyone with either hooded lids or monolids watch this fantastic Pixiwoo video on youtube) but I have discovered that a wash of color all over my lids and lots of lashes is an easy and foolproof look!

Here is what I threw on my eyes today in about five minutes....I think the color is multidimensional enough to be worn on its own and the shimmer makes it a great holiday or evening look.

Bare Escentuals Gold Medal EOTD

To create this look I used:

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin
Bare Escentuals High Shine Eyeshadow in Gold Medal
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sin (highlight under brow bone)
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Underground
Eyelash curler
L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes mascara in Black
NYX Eyebrow Shaper Wax
L'Oreal MagicLumi Concealer in Fair

What are your favorite eyeshadow techniques for hooded eyes?
