How to: Winged Eyeliner



Hello! A quick post on how I wing my eyeliner =) I sometimes get complimented on how I do my eyeliner. I like winging it whether I have eyeshadow or not. Ive been playing around with makeup and practicing on myself for about 8 years now, but I didn't trust myself to do my own makeup til just a few years ago. One thing i've learned from all those years though, is putting on eyeliner.

I started with pencil, moved on to liquid and tried gel liner. I prefer Liquid eyeliner because its the quickest and I'm usually pressed for time. But liquid eyeliner can be messy if you're not used to it or have shaky hands hehe. I'd like to share how I do it. For this demo, I used a gel liner and a flat thin liner brush.




1. I start off by lining the lashline starting from the inner part to the end of the lid.
2. Follow the natural shape of the eye and take a cue of where to wing from your eye shape.
3. Draw a winged line following the curve of your bottom lashline.




4. From the line you just drew. Connect the it to the lid by drawing a line from the tip of the winged line to the line you drew on the lashline.




5. Go back and fill in the space and make sure that the line is "smoothly" connected to the line you drew on the lashline.




6. You can then adjust the winged part if you feel that its a little to thin. If you went a little overboard, clean off the edges with a q-tip. And youre done! :)


What I used:

-UDPP ( I find this lessens the tendency of NYX Jumbo pencil to crease)
- NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
- M.A.C. Gesso (Lid) and Knight Divine (Crease). Blended Gesso on the crease and brow bone area to get rid of the harsh line. Femme-Fi for highlight
- L'Oreal HiP Gel Liner. I used Stila Kajal eyeliner on a flat eyeliner brush to adjust the winged part and for waterline
- The Faceshop XO lashes


Hope this helps! :)
