Perfect Winged Eyeliner12:02 AM
Hey everyone! I wanted to share another basics tutorial of one of my favorite simple eye looks: the classic winged eyeliner. When done correctly, this look needs no eyeshadow to enhance it and looks really great on those minimal makeup days.
To see how it's done, check out the video below!
Wet N Wild Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner in Black
L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Continuous Cocoa
Shiseido Eyelash Curler
Urban Decay Cannonball mascara
Urban Decay Instaflare Lashes
Chambray Shirtdress is from H&M
Nailpolish is OPI gel polish in Princess Rule!
Here is my final look. For monolidders, skipping the eyeshadow really allows the lashes to stand out which I think is a nice elegant touch. You can especially see on the eye to the right that the half lashes on the ends also blends in nicely and makes the eyes more framed without looking tacky.
With my eyes pointed downward you can see the straight winged line and how far it extends. I've mentioned this in tutorials before, but both my brows and the wing end in the same invisible point at my temples. This gives the look balance and is pleasing to the eyes.
Here's a close up. I kept the rest of my face very minimal with a light touch of BB Cream (application tutorial here), natural blush, and lip balm.
One last thing I wanted to note is that if you have any mistakes, keep a q-tip soaked in eye makeup remover handy to fix any little bobbles you make along the way. With practice, you can create the perfect line that is even on both eyes in just a couple strokes each morning! As you can see, a simple winged line can really carry an entire look so it's handy to keep in any woman's arsenal.
I hope you guys enjoyed the tutorial and let me know in the comments what basics video you'd like to see next. :)
