Making Eye’s With Look Fabulous Forever

Makeup dilemmas, I hate my hooded eyes! Do you remember a while back when I did some filming with Look fabulous forever? My film was all about hooded eyes (I hate mine!)  Impressed with how the makeup turned out Tricia, founder of the brand kindly sent me the eye makeup to try and share with you lovely lot.

There’s also a “how to” film for you to watch at the end of the post here and I will leave links at the bottom of the post for you.


Tools of the trade. All you need for eye makeup

From left to right..

Eyelash Curlers

The eyelash curlers I already had from the brand. I’ve been using these a while now and find the best I have used. My eyelashes are very sparse and I need all the help I can get in this department! I tend to curl my eyelashes after one coat of mascara, gently lifting the curlers away. I feel I get a better curl this way.

Wedge shadow brush

This is the for applying shadow as eyeliner. This creates a smooth blended line rather than a sharp line with a pencil. I did ask Tricia why the brand doesn’t have eye pencils and this is the reason. this little brush does the job for you. It’s very precise. I found wetting the brush slightly and applying the eyeshadow as eyeliner easier for more precision, let it dry and then blend to soften the look.

Shadow blending brush

This is perfect for applying powder shadow all over and the perfect size and shape for shading into the eye sockets. I found the size of the brush just right to add the right amount into the socket.

Shadow and Lip brush

I wondered if I would use this for eye makeup but you will see in the video it did actually come in handy for more precise shading.

Eyebrow brush

Don’t we all need one of these? I have very unruly eyebrows! I also use a gel to set them into place too.


Look Fabulous Forever Eye Prime for eye makeup

Two new products to try here, the brow shape is fantastic and I totally recommend.

Left to right …

The Mascara

this mascara is filament free and applies a very fine application. Clump-free and designed to give a soft look. I need lots of this to build up the look I desire. I explained this in the very first makeup video I did. You can watch that here. I do prefer a heavier look though. This is available as regular or waterproof for preference.

Fabulous Eye Prime

I’m really impressed with this. I normally apply a light dab of foundation to my eyes before eye makeup but this is so much better. It keeps your eye makeup in place and you don’t get any creasing into one migrating line on your eyes. I really like it.

Fabulous Brow Shape

Another new product that gave great results. I’ve never used a brush to apply my brow shape and this fine little brush gives great precision and when brushed after gives a really good effect. A bit like a daily micro-blading if you like. Perfect even more so for women with sparse brows.

The Eyeshadows

Left to right..

Eyeshade Cream

I always apply a light shade all over my eye and make it a little heavier on the eyelid. I find this gives a great brightening effect and makes the eyes “pop” Light on the eyelid adds definition bringing the lids out more. Try it!

The Look Fabulous Forever  Eyeshades are all matt which can be a godsend to mature eyes. The pigment of these shadows is very good too.

Eyeshade Cappuccino

I didn’t use this one in the video. I would use this on the eyelid and up to the socket for a deeper evening look.


Eyeshade Taupe

I used this by applying with the shadow blending brush deep into the sockets. It’s a perfect shade to just add a little deepness and make those hooded eyes recede a little. You can see how I applied in the video how much of a difference this makes. I always use this mantra “Light to bring out and dark to recede”


Eyeshade Cocoa

This was applied as an eyeliner with the Wedge Shadow Brush. I think I’m converted! The brush applied a fine precise line and blended to give a real soft effect. I think harsh lines on my eyes at this age only accentuate age! I was impressed with how this stayed on too.

I also applied a fine line of this into the eye socket with the Shadow And Lip Brush. Then I blended again with the Blending Brush. The deeper the look you want to achieve just apply more and build up.

So that’s how I apply eye makeup to help those hoods disappear!

I hope you will take the time to watch the video and see in action how these products are applied.



Also here’s a link to other makeup  dilemmas and how to solve them. I hope you find any solutions you may need here.

Do take a look at the Look Fabulous range of makeup. I also swear by the concealer. It gives really good coverage and also I use the Enduring Summer Bronze. Again this is a matt bronzer, so much better for mature skins.

I need your help!

    Thank you for your informative discussion of an eye makeup technique many of us can use! I also love the colours you’ve chosen for the makeup – I’ve had this issue all of my life because my eyes are small and deepset, but at least I can see out of them…πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™€οΈβ€οΈπŸ™Donna

    Great video Laurie – the eye brow ‘threader’ does sound interesting – I could do with painting a few more in near the nose (over plucked there for decades!). You makeup always looks so flawless xx

      Thank you Jo. The eyeshadows are great for not adding a crapload of sparkle to your eyes. Good pigment too xx

    Fab post, Laurie. I bought a wedge brush on the recommendation of a cousin but haven’t used it yet, you’ve reminded me to get experimenting with it. And love those shadow shades. I’m a huge fan of taupe shadow which is always in my make up bag. I became hooked on Max Factor’s Nouveau Beige cream shadow in the 60s. Then some time in the 70s they stopped making it. Don’t you hate when that happens?
    Now must dash, I’m off to watch your latest vlog!
    Hugs my sweet x.

  22. April 17, 2018 / 12:48 pm

    I hate my hooded eyes too and mine didn’t come from age either. I had them in my twenties. I was told once by a make up expert, when i was in my 20s’, ‘if i was you I wouldn’t bother with eyeshadow.’ How deflating was that!
    Thanks for the tips

      Mine have always been the same too! They just got worse! xx
