Winged eyeliner can be an a sexy, sultry style when done right, but for makeup newbies, it can be a very difficult skill to master. If you have never tried winged eyeliner or have never managed to get the difficult technique down, read today’s blog to learn how to create the look the right way!
1. Apply pencil eyeliner to your upper lash line. Use a light pencil eyeliner to draw a thin line as close to your upper lash line as possible. The line should be as thin as possible, as well.[fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”]
2. Measure how far out the wing should go. Hold your eyeliner pencil at the end point of your bottom lash line. Point it upward diagonally so that it practically looks like a continuation of your lower lash line.
3. Draw a thin diagonal line out to the end of the wing. This line should roughly match the guideline you visualized when holding the liner pencil against your eyelid. In other words, it should almost look like an extension of your lower lash line.
4. Make a straight line from the tip to the middle of your eyelid. With your eyelid as flat and taut as possible, draw a straight diagonal line from the very tip o the wing down to the middle of your upper lash line
5. Fill in the outline. Use your pencil eyeliner to fill in the winged outline you just created until all the skin between the line is covered.
6. Thicken the line at the inner eyelid. To make it appear as though the wing is getting thinner naturally as it goes into the eye, you should use short strokes of your eyeliner pencil to smooth out the corner between the end of your wing and the liner on the upper lash line.
