I’ve had a few people ask me how I do my eyeliner, so I put together a simple how-to. Winged tips can be an easy way to add a little vintage flare to your look, or just jazz up an overplayed eyeliner routine!
What you’ll need:
Eye liner- I use Mac’s Fluidline, but you can use an eyeliner marker, or anything else you have!
Brush- If you use a gel formula like I do, you’ll need a fine tip brush. Mine used here is Mac’s 208 brush (meant for eyebrows) but they have an even thinner 209.
- Line your top lid, staying as close to your lash line as you can. Don’t wing out the sides yet.
- Now, lightly wing up the corner using the tip of your brush. You’ll want it to wing out a little more than 90 degrees.
- Finally, blend the wing by smoothing the lash line and connecting at the tip of your wing. This will fill in the winged space and make it a smooth fluid line.
That’s it! The trick is patience, your lines won’t always be straight the first try and getting both sides to match can be a pain, but you’ll get it. Practice makes perfect!
To see my #1 fashion icon give a tutorial on winged tips, check out the following link. She uses a liquid liner, which makes for a much thinner wing:
Hope your week has been fantastic 🙂
