I’ll admit it – I’m a HUGE fan of winged liner. It doesn’t matter if it’s a small wing or a dramatic wing… I’m all about it. That’s why I’m so excited that Ange asked me to share my technique with you all because it is SO easy. Seriously! If you’ve ever been intimidated by winged liner in the past you can officially get rid of those fears because I’m here to tell you that you can get it done with two lines.
Yep! Only two lines. This tutorial follows the natural shape of your eyes so you get a perfect look each time. It can be customized as well but when I’m in a hurry this is the quickest, easiest, and most fool proof way I can create a dramatic eye look.
The first thing you want to do is draw a line up from the outer corner of your bottom lashes. How high you go will depend on the height of your “wing tip” so keep that in mind! I like to start with a shorter line because it helps to make sure that both eyes are even. By following the natural angle of your lower lash line you can reduce the chances that your wings will be unbalanced. For tutorial purposes we’ll go ahead and call this “Line #1.”
The second line (otherwise known as “Line #2”) is drawn from the inner corner of your eye straight out to meet the tip of line #1. It sounds crazy but by drawing a straight line you’ll naturally create a wing on the outer corner of the eye. Since the eye is oval in shape your wing will start where the oval starts to round down in the outer corner. Connect Line #2 to Line #1 and you’re done!
After connecting your lines fill in the triangle and apply mascara. You’ve officially mastered the winged eyeliner look!
As far as products go I personally LOVE to use an eyeliner pen stylo for winged liner because it’s a one stop shop. The pen is easy to hold and I don’t have to keep dipping my brush into a pot of product and disrupt my winged eyeliner mojo. My absolute favorite eyeliner pen is made by Alcone at Home and it’s awesome! It’s got a perfect formula, dark pigmentation and a perfect brush so it really makes this technique a breeze.
