The perfect winged eyeliner swoop is a tough art to master. For beginners, and even makeup extraordinaire, free-handing your liner is no easy task. Usually it takes a lot of patience, dedication, and makeup wipes—but fear not, TRENDYSHACK has a few tips and tricks that will help you become a cat-eye master.
- IT STARTS WITH THE RIGHT LINER
Before you head into battle, you must first arm yourself with the right weapon—liquid liners. If you’re not still on the fence about splurging on them, drug stores offer a wide array of liquid liners to choose from. If you’re the “Go big or go home” type, liquid liners are for you because they create a sharp and bold line whereas pencil eyeliners go for a softer line.
- PRACTICE THE STEPS
Practice really is the key to getting a hang of free-handing your wings. No one can perfect a wing liner on their first try, and no one can create even wings consistently unless they devote time to train. As with war, a soldier must train in order to become a better fighter.
Start at the inner corner of your eye, along the lash line, and slowly swipe the liner towards the outer corner of your eye. If you prefer a thicker wing, retrace your initial line a couple of times. Next, for the wing, angle your line towards the end of your eyebrow. You might have to gently tug the skin at your outer corner to draw a straight line. Finally, fill in your wing, thickening the curve as you go.
Note: Keep a cotton swab or a makeup wipe nearby in case you mess up and want to start the wing over again. Practice makes perfect, so don’t get discouraged when you don’t get it right the first time!
- USE A GUIDE
As we’ve said before, free-handing isn’t as easy as it looks. Getting the wings symmetrical can often be the breaking point of any eyeliner enthusiast which is why guides exist to make our lives easier and less stressful. Though we hate to admit it, sometimes we have to accept that we can’t achieve our goals without the help of others (#TendyShackLifeLessons, am I right?).
