I've been wanting to do this post for a little while now. I think there are a lot of people out there that would love to learn how to do a perfect winged eyeliner. And even though it looks hard and a little scary, it's actually pretty easy. Today I would like to share a couple of steps that have helped me become an expert at creating a winged eye liner not only on myself but on my clients as well.
Now I also think it's very important to consider the fact that we all have different eye shapes. What we see on one person may not look the same on us. With that being said I believe that the eyeliner tips that I have outlined for you on this post today will help you create a winged eyeliner that works just for YOU!
Here are the 4 easy eyeliner tips to help you achieve the perfect winged eyeliner
STEP 1: A tip that I like to use in order to create the perfect wing is to follow an invisible line that connects from my bottom lashes. As you can see in the picture above, if you use a brush as your guide you will get an idea of where to place the first line.
I really like using this technique because it gives me a pretty good idea of where I should place the wing. And instead of just doing a general wing, this allows you to create a wing that will work for your own eye shape.
STEP 2: Next follow the invisible line from your bottom lashes and create a line. Extend this line as far as you would want your wing to be (and remember the moon is the limit) During this step just take your time. A tip for you, would be to create the line by doing small dashes, this way you won't feel the pressure to get a perfect wing line all in one try.
STEP 3: The third step would be to create another line that connects from the end of that first line towards your lashes. And once you have this part done you will have something that looks similar to the picture above. The line I started off with wasn't giving me enough thickness so I drew another one next to it. But it will all come together on the next step.
I personally like to use the #212 MAC because it's flat so it makes it easier to clean up straight lines like a winged eye liner.
