How to: Winged Liner

winged-liner I'm having a real huge eyeliner moment. I can't go a week without wearing a winged eye. It really has become my signature look. If you notice in most of my #fotd, I always have some sort of variation of a winged eye to finish my look. Today I share some tips on how I do my own winged liner. I know a lot of us gals have different eye shapes, so bare in mind it takes A LOT OF PRACTICE..and I mean heapppsss. You have to dedicate yourself and gives yourself heaps of patience to perfect it.

As you all know I have monolids so doing this is quite challenging for me. But you will get the hang of it. If I can do it , you can :)

Tips and tricks:

#1 Use liquid eyeliner that is thin and has a brush/felt tip. My favourites are Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner and Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, both in black of course.

#2 Start by lining in the middle of the eye. Draw thin lines, don't go too thick, less is more. That way you can build up the look.

#3 Use the tail end of your eyebrow to mark where the angle and the end of your wing should be --> this is probably the only tip that has really helped make them similar on both eyes

#4 If need be, you should try drawing it on with a pencil or even using a light eyeshadow colour to draw the wing. After you can draw over with liquid eyeliner.

#5 Have cotton buds and eye makeup remover handy. Every single time I do my winged liner, I always have this one hand, I never actually do it one go! You're only human, so its completely normal to not get it on the first go.
