Hi everyone, today I am doing a post on how to create the perfect winged eyeliner.
This makeup looks simple but effective yet it can be one of the hardest techniques to master, I can honestly say it's taken me about two years to finally get it under my belt!!
Firstly there are loads of eyeliners you can use, liquid, gel, pencil, felt tip, the list goes on....
If you are starting out with winged eyeliner one of the easiest to use is the Loreal Super Liner because the applicator is close to the handle so you have more control. A gel liner is quite easy to use as well because you can hold a brush close to the end which makes the application more accurate.
In these pictures I used a liquid liner from a company called blinc cosmetics. I mentioned it in my April Favourites which you can watch here and you can purchase it here.
Onto the actual application.
I apply my eyeliner in 3 stages.
1. Middle, 2, Inner Corner, 3, Flick
I start off by lining the centre third of my eye as close to the lash line as possible in an outward motion, try not to make it too thick as you wont have any room to correct mistakes!!!
Secondly I join it up to the inner corner of my eye. I find it easier working outwards in but that's my personal preference. You want to make this inside line as thin as you can.
Finally for the flick you need to work out what suits your eye shape. I have quite small eyelids and I have heavier skin above my eye so I like my eyeliner to be thinner so I still have lid showing when my eyes are open.
To create the perfect wing I continue with the line right to the outer corner of my eye, it's important you get right to the edge otherwise your flick will not follow your natural eye shape.
Then I look down into a mirror and draw a thin line from the top of where I want my flick and join it up to the liner on my lash line.
DON'T PULL YOUR SKIN TIGHT WHEN YOU DO THIS STEP AS YOUR LINER WILL WRINKLE UP!!!
Then all you need to do is fill in the wing! I try to join it into a straight line because that's what suits me, you can see it a bit clearer in the bottom right picture.
I hope this helps you,
Thanks for reading!
