6 Winged Eyeliner Hacks That Will Help You Master the LookJuly 07, 2020
TRICK 1: Start With a Pencil ProductAre you more comfortable with eyeliner pencil than liquid or gel liner? This trick is for you. Instead of going straight to town with the ever-daunting liquid liner, try outlining the shape of your wing with a pencil eyeliner, like the L’Oréal Paris Makeup Le Liner Signature Mechanical Eyeliner.Then, trace the shape with a thin liquid eyeliner like L’Oréal Infallible The Super Slim By Infallible Black.
TRICK 2: Use a StencilIf your issue is drawing an even, smooth line with your eyeliner, try using a stencil. The L’Oréal Paris Flash Cat Eyeliner has a built-in stencil that comes with the felt-tip liner. To use it, you line up the cat-eye guide with your eyelid and fill in with the product for a sharp, precise cat-eye shape.
TRICK 3: Forgo Liner and Use Stickers InsteadFor those who feel they are totally hopeless when it comes to eyeliner — no if, ands or buts — try cat-eye stickers. Haus Laboratories by Lady Gaga has an Eye Armor Kit that includes liquid liner and wing-tip stickers.
TRICK 5: Draw the Flick BackwardsInstead of trying to make the point of the flick on your winged eyeliner meet the spot you want it to end, try starting at the end and following the shape in toward your nose instead.
TRICK 6: Connect the DotsYou never knew a simple game of Connect-the-Dots would become so handy, did you? If steady, straight lines aren’t your thing, try drawing tiny dots along your upper lash line and connecting them for a smooth cat-eye wing.
