Career, life, eyeliner- Just wing it! Eyeliner was one of the first “grown up” makeup products I was allowed to wear in high school. Ever since that moment, I’ve been in love with the eye defining power of winged liner. My go-to liner look is a simple, subtle wing.
Perfecting your eyeliner look is definitely a tricky journey. Getting a straight line and even wings on each eye is no easy task. I have two tips to help you achieve the perfect winged eyeliner no matter what formula you like to use.
Tip # 1: Start in the middle
Our favorite YouTube stars seem to be able to draw the perfect line in one simple swoop. That is a feat I have yet to accomplish. I’ve found that putting my liner on in three phases helps me achieve a more even line.
I start in the middle of my lash line and draw a line to the outer corner. Then I start a line from the inner corner of my eye and connect it to the first line I made. I finish by adding the wing.
Tip # 2 Use a guide
Getting an even wing on both eyes is so difficult! Use a guide to take the guess work out of winging your liner. I really like this makeup tape from Sephora. I’ve seen people use regular tape but I prefer this one because it is formulated to use on skin so there’s no toxic chemicals or residue left behind.
