How to Wing your Eyeliner like a Pro

IMG_6379

Hey dolls! I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately on how to achieve a perfect cat eye. So for today’s post, I decided to share with you my favorite eyeliner hack of ALL TIME! I just LOVE the look of a dramatic eyeliner; it can really pull an entire look together. The best part is, getting that flawless wing is easier than you think! You’ll be a pro at it & just in time for your weekend plans! Let’s get started!! 🙂

All you need to create this look is black eye shadow, your fav eyeliner, and tape! Yes, you read that correctly. TAPE! 🙂

  1. Start off by applying two pieces of tape as shown in the far-left picture above. ( I outlined the pieces of tape in blue so that you can better see where to properly place your tape!) The two pieces of tape should touch on the outer end–this is what will determine how far out your wing will extend.  On the outer corner of your eye, there should be an open, triangular shape between the two pieces of tape–Slightly dampen some black eye shadow and fill in that area! The tape basically acts as a stencil to help keep you from coloring outside the lines 😀
  2. Gently peel the tape off, starting at the bottom + removing it upwards to avoid tugging on your skin! The picture in the center demonstrates what it should look like. You should now have a clean, sharp wing in the outer corner of your eye.
  3. Take your go-to eyeliner and trace along your upper lash line, connecting it to the wing. I also re-apply over the wing with my liner to ensure it’ll stay on longer!

 

Repeat the same steps on your other eye, and you are all done!! Literally easy as 1, 2, 3, am I right?! 🙂

I think this is the best trick out there for making sure the wings on both eyes are even, and on point!

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you found this tutorial helpful–it has seriously been my go-to technique!

May your weekend be long + and the wings of your liner always even!! 😉
