Ahhh yes, my first ever makeup tutorial! I’ve been sick the past few days and had to keep pushing this back but it’s finally here! I wanted to start the blog off with a quick and easy-to-follow picture tutorial. I always get questions on how to make that sharp, perfect wing. Like many of you reading this post; I was once lost too, and would end up with ugly, choppy triangles at the ends of my eyes…
But look no further! The secret is here… lol.
Now on to the tutorial!
Sonia Kashuk Angled Eyeliner Brush
Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black
NYC liquid eyeliner
Now, many gals will ask, “But why do you use gel eyeliner and then liquid on top?”.. I think it just makes the application a lot easier. The gel liner is a lot more forgiving than the liquid liner. (At least I think it is lol.)
Start off with a naked eye. (Or on top of your eyeshadow, of course.)
Starting at the inner corner of your eye, begin drawing a line. It should get thicker towards the end of your eye. You should end up with something like this:
When making the wing, follow the natural shape of your eye. Think of it as an extension of your waterline… Refer to zee image below:
Once you’ve drawn your line, it should look a little something like this!:
After you have your guide, it’s pretty much a piece of cake from here. All you’ve got to do now is connect the wing! Draw a line from the end of the wing inwards, and you’ll end up with a nice little triangle.
Fill that bad boy in!! You can always just use the gel liner but I like to go over my oh-so impeccable wing with the NYC liquid liner to make it darker and sharper.
aaaaaand STEP SIX:
Of course, what’s an eye look without mascara, right? Apply your favorite mascara, and you have your finished look!
Hope you guys can follow along and learn from the tutorial. Let me know how it goes! Feedback is always good. Thank you and lotsa love from me to you!
