I have loved makeup since I was a little girl and I could draw perfectly straight eyeliner by the time I was 14. I loved makeup that much and I never really stopped learning new tricks. However, the one type of eyeliner look I had a really hard time with was the winged liner. There was just something about it that I found impossible to do. However, that did not stop me from trying to perfect it and finally, I found some really simple ways to do it and I cannot wait to share my technique with you.
When people ask me how I do my eyeliner, I usually tell them that it takes a lot of care and practice and I am not kidding; these tips will make the winged liner easier but you have to practice if you are to get it right. Have a look at some of my tips below and practice, practice, practice until you get it right.
- The first thing you want to do is pick your eyeliner. If you want a bold and stark line, you will want to go for liquid eyeliner but if you want to go for a smokier look then gel liner or pencil liner is what you want to go for.
- Next thing you want to do is draw a line from the outer corner of your eye and slant upwards towards the end of your eyebrow. Try not to blink for a few seconds while the liner dries.
- Next step is to gently pull on your eyelid to create a smooth surface. Draw a line from the tip of the first line you drew and draw another line at a slight decline inwards. Try to work by segments instead of creating one continuous line.
- If your eyes are wider, bring the line to the inner corner of the eye. Fill in the space with eye liner.
