What are hooded eyes?
Hooded eyes are characterised by a prominent brow bone that causes the crease of your eye, and often part of your eyelid, to be covered. This extra fold of skin covering the crease in your eyelid making it appear smaller.
Some people are born with hooded eye. It’s simply an eye shape. Other people may find that their eyes become hooded through ageing. The eyelids are often the first place to show aging, and there are two main causes: firstly, the upper eyelid skin is the thinnest skin in your body so it’s prone to stretching, and second, the brows descend and deflate, causing crowding and hooding below.
