I was attempting to film my everyday makeup routine today, but my camera decided to bug out on me right when I got to doing my eyeliner. I was bummed, but I decided to scratch the video and just do a quick pictorial on how I do my winged eyeliner! I used the Stila Stay All Day liquid liner pen today.
Hopefully I will have my next video up fairly quickly. It looks like I need to clear up some memory on my card before I try to make such a large video!
I promise, I will film an in depth winged eyeliner tutorial as my next video! Onto the pictorial!
First things first, with your eyeliner, line your lash line. I find it easiest to start in the middle, then move outward. I then go back to the middle and line inward. You want your line to gradually increase in thickness as you move outward.
Next, you need to relax your face and look completely straight into the mirror. You want to draw (with a light hand) the bottom part of your wing. You want it to be proportional to the very tail end of your eyebrow. Since my eyes are hooded, I draw the line with a relaxed face because if you pull your skin taught, it will look wonky when your eye is in it’s normal resting position.
Now, you want to draw the upper half of your wing and connect it to the outer corner of your eyeliner that was previously drawn. You want your wing to be sharp, like a dagger. You want people to fear you because of how intimidating those wings are!
This step may be the easiest of them all. Just fill in that empty space between the top part of the wing and the lower part. Now, if you are happy with the thickness, you may leave your wing the way it is and skip step 5 and move onto step 6. If you are fierce, like a lion, you may proceed.
Retrace that sweet, sweet liner and make it just a bit more THICK! Now, you are the king/queen of the animal kingdom. You have achieved what many still fear. If you are reading this and you decided to keep your tiny dagger the way it was, you, my dear, are still a fierce lion. Any cat eye, no matter the size, is a victorious moment.
Curl those lashes! I keep my curler in between my thighs while I do my makeup so that it may warm up. You can always blast it with a blow dryer for a few seconds as well. I hold this curling position for 10-15 seconds per eye.
Run some mascara over those lashes! I did one coat, waited a minute, then applied a second coat.
Repeat steps 1-7 on your opposing eye. You got this!
Be the fierce feline that you are! You rock!
