How to Outline Your Winged Eyeshadow for a Unique and Colorful LookOctober 27, 2021
Over the past year or so, we’ve become accustomed to doing the absolute most with our eye makeup, whether that’s rhinestone-embellished looks, graphic cut creases or what we like to call an eyeliner sandwich. The latter — a term we totally made up but stand behind — is when you apply similar swipes of colored eyeliner along your crease and your lash line and then apply a contrasting shade on your lid that’s sandwiched in between. We asked makeup influencer @ohitsbreee to share her take on the look and the result is a stunning metallic creation you need to try. Read on to learn how.
Draw Your Cut Crease
Bri used the NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Eye Pencil in Blueberry Pop to draw along her crease and then elongated the thick line out into a wing. Next, she softened the line with a smudger brush.
Add Color to Your Lid
Using the NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Eye Pencil Cupcake, Bri colored the space below the crease, including the entire lid. She topped it off with a baby pink eyeshadow and then went in once more with the NYX eye pencil to add more pigment to the look.
Apply the Eyeliner Used in Step One Along the Lower Lash Line
Bri picked up the NYX Eye Pencil in Blueberry Pop for the second time and applied it on the lower lash line and smudged it out with a brush.
Add the Finishing Touches
Bri added a pink shimmer on the inner corner of the eyes to brighten the look and lined the waterline with a bright blue pencil eyeliner to complement the shade used on the crease and below the lash line. Finally, she finished with a few coats of mascara.
