The Winged-Out Eyeliner Tips
- The most important things are placement and direction, so take your time. I recommend that you use a light eye pencil to create a sketch of how you would like your wings to look. This makes it easy for you to make any corrections by using a Q-tip to erase any mistakes that you may make. Your line should start out as thin as possible and grow thicker and thicker towards the outer corner of your eye.
- Now that you have sketched out your wing pattern step away from the mirror just for a few brief minutes then you should be able to tell if your wings look similar on both sides. You should be able to tell if your wings are similar. Now if your wings aren’t looking perfect then I have the perfect little trick that I learned from a fellow makeup artist. When you cant get the perfect wings, trace a business card…..Yes that works.
- Once you have sketched your wings line you will then use a liquid liner to trace your sketch…Now how far or how thick your wings are really depend on your eye/face shape & even your personality…..
- To get your angle right, Angela suggests you use a pencil to measure the diagonal between the outer corner of your nose and the outer corner of your eye. The slope of the pencil at your outer eye corner will be approximately the right angle for your wings. Then use water and a thin, angled brush to apply a lighter shadow along the lash line for maximum impact. You can also add lashes for a sexy dramatic look.
