“Never Ask A Girl With Winged Eyeliner Why She’s Late”
Do you envy your colleague’s perfect winged eyeliner all the time? You can master it too! And, I’ll teach you how you can do it in style along with well-defined cut crease. Just follow the step-by-step tutorial given below.
First prep and prime the lids and the under eye area. After this, apply an orange corrector and concealer mixed together to cover the under eye dark circles.
Next, use a translucent powder to set the corrector and concealer.
Fill in the eyebrows with an angular brush.
Create a line as shown in the picture with a brown eye pencil. Using an ear bud, smudge the brown line upwards towards the eyebrow.
After blending the crease line, apply a dark brown eyeshadow. I used MAC Devilishly Dark with a round blending brush. Remember the eyeshadow should be over the brown pencil colour and blended upwards in the same manner as the brown pencil. I used the blending brush to soften the look.
Next, use Manila Paper by MAC. I used a flat brush to apply the eyeshadow. Start from the inner corner and go towards the outer corner. This shade should not go above the crease line that we have created. You can apply the same shade on the browbone.
Now comes the exciting part, the winged eyeliner. To create the winged eyeliner, use a liquid eyeliner pen. Believe me, a felt tip eyeliner pen makes the application of a winged eyeliner so much easier. This is a must-have in every girl’s vanity.
First, create a line from the corner of the eye towards the eyebrow. You will have to stretch the eyelid from top so that you get more or less a straight line. When you leave the lid, it falls at an angle as shown in the pic.
Now join the tip of the line till the centre of the lash line. This will create a triangle.
Now fill this in with the black eyeliner completely.
Join this filled-in triangle with another line that you will start from the inner corner. Remember – the liner has to be thinnest at the inner corner, medium in the centre and thickest on the outer corner. After this, if you feel the wing needs to be extended, you can do so by just extending the end with a little flick.
Apply a nice dose of black kajal.
How can any eye makeup ever look complete without a super lengthening and curling mascara! Apply generous amount of mascara to enhance the look. You can also use falsies, but I haven’t since my model is blessed with beautiful lashes.
