Girls With Small Eyelids: This Makeup Tutorial Is Smokey-Eye Magic

There are some girls who just know how to bang out a badass smokey eye on any lid shape. But, when you have small hooded eyes, you can feel like all that hard work disappears the minute you open them up. Because, really, why do all that artwork if the canvas instantly disappears when you're done?

Well, hope has arrived in the way of an amazing tutorial from leading makeup artist Wayne Goss. Girls with hooded lids, prepare to follow this man into the promised land of smokey eye goodness.
Goss goes step-by-step in front of the camera and breaks it down so well, you really only need to watch it a couple of times to nail it. He even uses one of our new favorites, Paula's Choice Nude Mattes Eyeshadow Palette, to get the look. It's so easy, even the most makeup-challenged girl can pull this off.
So, gals, you're now officially prepared to start a five-alarm fire with your smokin' hot makeup look. Remember — with great power comes great responsibility. Don't hurt 'em too badly this weekend, ok?
