Do you love the look of winged eyeliner, but can’t do it for crap?  If you’re anything like me, you adore the look, but it has taken me SO long to just be able to figure out how to get it to look passable…lol!

After reading Jenna’s tips (found here), I practiced and practiced (and practiced), and found that it became so much easier when I broke it down into a few easy steps.  It’s easiest for me when I use a pen, like the new bareMinerals Lash Domination Ink Liner (read my review here), but with a few easy steps, it’s now gotten even easier when using a liner and brush.

I’ll be using Tarteist Clay Paint Liner in this example (read my review and more info here).  One of the things I LOVE about this Tarte liner is that it’s packaged in an easy to use tube, and it comes with an angled brush, making application a breeze, even for beginners!  You’ll have to excuse the bad lighting in the example photos- I was trying to take pics in my bathroom…lol!


Winged Eyeliner Step 1

The first step is to map out the bottom edge of the wing.  I start at the corner of my eye, and draw outward.  It’s easiest if you follow the the same angle natural line of the lower part of your eye.  You can change the length or angle, depending on how bold you want your wing to look.

Next, map out the top part of your wing.  It’s better go create a skinnier wing at first, because you can always build up on it if you want something bolder.  You can start at the outer corner and draw up to connect to the end of the first line, or you can start further along the length of your eye like I did- whatever floats your boat!

Finally, fill in the wing, and touch up any edges, etc.  For example, I’ll be filling in, and thickening it up all along my lash line.  That’s all there is to it!

I got my Tarteist Clay Paint Liner from Cassie and Bobby Dazzle at Sephora in Bossier City.  If you’re near there, stop by and pick one up, or click here to get it from Tarte 🙂
