How To: Winged Eyeliner

When it comes to winged eyeliner, I'm really not an expert. In fact, I'm actually really bad at it, but I've found a really easy method to help make it a little bit easier as I'm sure we've all had trouble trying to get the perfect flick.

Step 1: The Eyeliner
Trying to do winged liner can be really difficult it the actual product itself isn't very good. I like using felt tip liners at first to get the shape right as they are really easy and precise to use. The one I like is the Collection 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner. I then go in with another Collection eyeliner, it's the Collection a Work the colour Eyeliner. This has a more wet and darker formula and is a bit more messy if you go wrong, which is why I like to use it second.

Step 2: The Flick
The way I acctually do the winged liner, is firstly just draw a fine line very close to your lash line. Then to do the flick you want to picture a line from the end of your eyebrow to the outer edge of you eye. Then just draw a straight line for the flick, but don't make it too long! Keep some cotton buds nearby incase it goes wrong!

Step 3: Connecting the Lines
Right now your eyeliner might not look very smooth and probably quite harsh. You'll want to join up the flick with the fine line along the lash line by creating almost a triangle, I'm not exactly sure how to explain it but hopefully you get the gist. Then just fill it in and you have your winged eyeliner!

It does take a bit of practice (and concentration) to master the winged eyeliner, I definitely haven't mastered it yet! It takes me many tries and a long time to do it. But hopefully these tips helped you! Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed!
