Hi, everyone. My name is Joi, makeup artist in New York, and I want to show you all today, how to hide baggy eyelids with makeup. So, I'm just going to be using a bit of shadow and of course, my shadow brush today. A couple of things when it comes to baggy eyelids. Somethings that you don't want to do, are to use very bright colors, colors with a lot of shimmer or anything reflective, because that's actually just going to draw attention to the bagginess of the eyelid. So, the best thing that you want to do, is to use matte eye shadows. So, I'm just going to show you a little bit how that would look and how to create a little bit of definition without using anything too shiny. So, I'm just going to go with a sort of a chocolate brown shade, and placing it at the base here, close to the lashes and blending out. This is actually going to help reduce the look of any puffiness or any crinkling. It's going to kind of provide a camouflage effect for you. And this is not to say that you can't use multiple colors, you just have to be a little bit more careful about the ones that you choose. Another thing that you can do after you're done with your eye makeup, if you've gone with a more natural look, is to try to play up another feature on your face. So,maybe wearing a brighter lipstick, or maybe a brighter shade of blush. And that'll also help to draw attention to one of your better features, versus the bagginess of the eyelids. So, you've got a soft brown there, blended all the way up to the crease. And then, to draw attention to another area of the eye, we're just going to highlight underneath the brow bone with a lighter color. So, I'm taking this right up, under the brow, and just blending it down. You want the lines between the two colors to sort of, fade into each other. O.k., and there you go, a nice, little trick to camouflage baggy eyelids and draw attention to other areas of your face. So, I hope that this was helpful to everyone and thank you all for watching, bye.
