There’s no doubt about it. The winged eyeliner look has become quite the makeup staple. Ever since the 50s, women have been adding this neat trick to their resumes. It’s no wonder then, that from the runway to real life, this look has been making a huge impact. Dying to try it out? Look no further! We’ve got you covered:
1 – Set a mirror at chin level so you can look down. Drag the eyeliner along your lash line past the top outer corner of your eye. The further out the line, the more dramatic the final effect.
2 – From the outer corner, work your way back in. Slowly fill in using short strokes.
3 – The closer you are to your inner lash line, the thinner the line should become.
4 – Connect to the inner corner of your eye. Fill in any empty spaces along your lash line. And just like that, you’re done!
If you’ve already dipped your toe in the winged eyeliner pool, use these tips as a stepping stone toward new style experimentation. Designers like Lanvin, Stella McCartney, and many others have implemented a twist on the classic look for their models. Be brave, be bold, but mostly have fun!
