Match Your Wings!
Winged liner is elegant, classic, and simple… but can be a pain to do! Ever create a perfect wing on one eye and can’t seem to match the other? Here’s a quick tip to save you time getting your wings just right!
1. Prep your eyes. If you’re choosing to leave your lids bare of eyeshadow, prime them and apply a loose powder on top. This will help your liner have something to grasp on to.
2. With a light brown shadow (I’m using black for demonstration purposes!), sketch out your wing. A great reference is your bottom lash line. Follow the natural curve of your eye and extend it. Do this to both eyes. Look straight into a mirror and if they’re even, you’re good to move on to the next step! If not, simply wipe the shadow off and start again. A light shadow is much easier to remove than a gel or liquid liner!
3. Lightly fill in where you’d like the rest of the liner to go.
4. Line on top of the shadow with a gel or liquid liner. For a softer look, leave some of the shadow peeking out on top. For a sharp look, make sure all of the shadow is covered by your liner. For extra staying power, set the liner with a shadow in the same color. Done!
