It’s a fact. The winged eyeliner look is here to stay and most of us simply love it. Whether you do it over a full eyeshadow makeup or just by itself, the “cat eye” adds elegance to your look. With all the different types of wings that exist, you can go from looking natural to dramatic depending on your mood.
However, some women think that they can’t pull off this look, because they have hooded eyes. They’ve tried to apply it and end up looking exactly the same, because it “disappears” in their eyelid, or worse… It smudges all over the upper eyelid!
If you’ve been in this annoying situation, don’t panic! We’ve gathered some amazing tips that will help you get that wing you’ve always wanted:
1. Find an eyeliner that has a microtip. This will help you better control the thickness of the line you want to draw. It should also be smudge-proof to avoid raccoon eyes. Mia Adora has a great option! The Overcomer Eyeliner.
2. Start on the outer corner of your eye. Create a wing that elongates your eyes. If you have a triple eyelid (which is when your upper eyelid has two folds instead of one), avoid drawing on it as it will make your wing look uneven.
3. Once your wing is on point, start drawing a line as close to your eyelashes as you can. Keep going until this line connects to the wing.
4. Practice, practice, practice! Experiment with different wing looks, and see which one looks best on you.
Here’s an awesome video that can guide you through the process. Hope this helps! Do you have any other tips or tricks you can share?
