Read on to find out how to create the perfect winged eyeliner look in 4 easy steps.
Starting at the middle of you upper lid, begin drawing a line as close to your lashes as possible. This line determines the width of your eye liner depending in how dramatic (thicker) or subtle (thinner) you want it.
Creating a straight line requires a bit of practice. You can either draw a single-stroke line or many short strokes, starting from the inner corner of your eye and moving towards the line you just drew, draw a fine line.
To create your eyeliner wing, draw a line starting from the last lash outwards. You can now decide the length & angle to your eye liner.
After drawing your wing, draw a line back to your upper lash line. This should create an empty triangle on your upper lid. To make you eyeliner thick, draw a bigger triangle, ending at the middle part of your lash line. For a more subtle look, draw a small triangle that finishes in your outer corner.
Color in the triangle with your pencil.
Finish off this sexy look with 2-3 coats of lengthening, thickening black mascara.
If you are a beginner, we recommend that you use either:
1. A liquid eyeliner with stub rather than that with a felt tip as it will allow you more control. You can switch to the felt tip when you perfect your skills.
2. A gel eyeliner with an angled brush.
3. An eyeliner marker or pencil can also be used to create the desired effects.
