1. Simple Winged Eyeliner Look

Simple Winged Eyeliner Look

This winged look is only slightly different from the traditional winged look. The traditional winged look has a slimmer winged tail. You can make yours as thin or as thick as you’d love.

Steps to creating this look:

Make sure your brows are properly groomed and in place. Carrying bushy brows doesn’t give a glamorous finish to your look.

Get a liquid eyeliner. I must add here that liquid eyeliners are perfect for drawing precise cat-eye wings.

Use the tip applicator to create a wing at the corner of your eyes with your black liquid eyeliner.

Extend this wing towards the end-tip of your brows.

Use your other finger to get a precise wing by gently pulling your skin to make it taut; this helps avoid wavy lines.

Pull lightly at the corner of your eyes and draw the liquid liner back into your upper lid.

Keep your eyes in an open state,

Take the liquid eyeliner applicator and use the tip to line your eyes till you connect the line to the wing.

Fill in the lines where necessary, and there you have your wing.

But hey! Our look isn’t complete yet.
Using a waterproof pencil to line the waterline to avoid irritations and allergies is in your best interest. If you are a pro and your eyes are not sensitive, you can use your liquid liner tip with very little product on it and line your lower lid.

Line it before the middle of your eyes.

Use a small makeup brush with your favorite eyeshadow color and line below the dark line on your waterline.

It’s that simple!

2. Here to Heart White Winged Eyeliner Look

So white liners are in vogue, and you want to try this look? You should! And here is how:

Take the line back inwards back to the middle of the upper lid.

Start close to the inner corners of the eyes with the eyeliner and connect your lids to the wing.

Line and fill any missing spaces to get your perfect wing!

Using your applicator, draw a line from your outer crease and connect it to the wing.

To nail this look completely, use your white eyeliner tip and creatively draw a love or heart sign.

If you are using a pencil, make sure your pencil tip is very sharp; else, you will end up with blurry lines.

Start with extending a wing out from the eyes.

Draw the end of the wing back to the eyelid.

From the end of this first wing, use your liquid eyeliner or pencil tip to cut a crease line on your upper lid.

Cut the crease upward towards the brows but not touch it yet.

From where the last wing touched the eyelid, draw out another similar to the first one.

Draw the wing back to the inner corner of the eyes.
