Tutorial • Winged Eyeliner Effect

To start creating the winged effect, start by taking an eyeliner pencil and lightly sketching out the shape you wish to have. The shape you want to create is depends on your face shape and how you are feeling. Always follow the shape of your eye and the directions your eyelid is. Also, you might want it to be thicker and further out one day, and thinner the next. It is always best to start of with this light outline, because it acts as a guidline and can also be adjusted a lot easier than a liquid eyeliner. 

Another tip is focus on something else for a minute or so and come back to the mirror later. By taking a break you will be able to see if each eye looks exactly the same. Now that you have an outline that looks symmetrical, it is time to use the liquid eyeliner. Most liquid eyeliners come with a brush provided, usually on the lid of the bottle, however it is much better if you use an actual eyeliner brush. By using this, creating the shape you want is a lot easier. Start thin in the middle of you eyelid and gradually go fatter towards the outer eyelid. Once you have the first line, you can decide whether you want it to be thicker or not. Gradually fill in shape thicker and thicker making sure you go as close to the eyelashes as possible. 

Once you have finished, do not move your head by looking up or down. Stay as still as possible for at least 15 seconds to make sure the eyeliner drys and does not smudge. Again, step away from the mirror and come back a few minutes later too see if the eyeliner looks symmetrical. Voila! You are finished! The more you create this look, the better you will get at it. Lots of love xoxo
