52-year-old beauty enthusiast shares her hack for lifting “hooded eyes”

Annamaria Kalebic, 52, shares a beauty tip that changes the appearance of hooded eyes on a smokey-eye-look. Eye shape is just as diverse as eye color in humans; there are many different types of eye shapes, and according to beauty experts, knowing which one you possess can help you with choosing certain looks when applying makeup.

Hooded eyes are a fairly common eye shape in which skin sags “from the brow bone to the top of the eye,” according to Dr. Cat Plastic Surgery. According to M2U NYC, dark shades on the outside of the eye coupled with light colors on the inside, work best with hooded eyes. Ms. Kalebic is one of the many who sport this stunning and unique eye-shape, however, she admitted that doing a smokey eye would only result in making her aging eyes appear smaller, as per The US Sun.

It is worth noting that Ms. Kalebic has quite a bit of prominence on social media as she has 70,000 followers on her TikTok account. She posted a video on TikTok sharing her technique and everyday smokey eye look. At the beginning of the video, we see her all dolled up with the captions: “Full Smokey Eye Makeup Look” at the top of the video and “Mature Skin & Hooded Eyes” at the bottom. Shortly after, she shows her clean, makeup-free face and applies makeup while telling us about what products she is using along with her tips and tricks.

She is seen applying reputable and affordable products like Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair, Estee Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme+ Bright Power Soft Crème (moisturizers), Erborian’s CC Red Correct (to reduce redness), Charlotte Tilbury’s Beautiful Skin foundation, Beauty Pie’s Superluminous Genius, MaxFaxtor’s Facefinity All Day Flawless concealer, Nyx tinted gel, Urban Decay’s Naked 2 Basics eyeshadow palette, Victoria Beckham Beauty’s Satin Kajal liner, and Maybelline’s Sky High mascara in black amongst others. The US Sun reports that most of the products are under 30 dollars, and some are available for purchase on Amazon or at your local Walmart.

In the video, the 52-year-old beauty applies a light color shade over her eyelid and then applies a darker shade at the top of the crease area. She also applies mascara first starting at the outer corners of her eyes and making her way in. She later applies her bronzer in an upward motion to get the “lift illusion effect.”

“Adding some definition to the area just above the crease really helps lift the eye area,” says the beauty guru.
