Love Winged Eyeliner? These Tools Will Help You Get the LookAugust 03, 2020
We love a great winged eyeliner, but sometimes the safer option is to just swipe on some mascara and call it a day. Even the most expert cat-eye lovers can struggle, make a smudge or have their pencil skip on their delicate skin. But we have good news. With the right tools (think: stamps, stencils and even eyeliner erasers), you can get a flawless and fierce winged liner, every time, without the stress or risk of messing up. So ditch the Q-tips and micellar water and check out these beauty editor-approved eyeliner tools that’ll help you create any eyeliner look, ahead.
Try a Winged Eyeliner Guide
Liquid liner is notoriously difficult to work with, especially if you want to execute a cat eye. Thankfully, the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Flash Cat Eye makes application super easy. Just line up the removable wing stencil and fill in the area with the waterproof, liquid formula.
Try a Winged Eyeliner StampFor a tool that’ll inspire you to dig up your collection of ’90s rubber stamps, check out the Vamp Stamp VaVavoom Stamp, which does all of the hard work for you. You’ll need eyeliner ink (you can even get this convenient bundle package) to dip the stamp into the product, and you’ll want to make sure it’s fully coated. From there, quickly stamp the “V” notch of the stamp on the outer corner of your eye. Finish by connecting your liner across your upper eyelid and proceed to marvel at your results.
Try a Winged Eyeliner StencilThe Beth Bender Cat Eyeliner Stencil was created by celebrity makeup artist Beth Bender. It’s designed to work on all different eye shapes, like almond eyes, hooded eyes and upturned eyes. For the perfect wing, place the stencil over your eyelid and follow the black guideline along the cat-eye stencil shape. The stencil can also help you apply your bottom liner and map out your smoky-eye look.
Try a Winged Eyeliner Temporary Tattoo
Violent Lips is a company dedicated to creating lip and eye tattoos that look like you did all of the work. We’re currently loving Violent Eyes in Pink Romance Glitteratti, a violet meets pink ombré liner. Each temporary tattoo packet comes with four different eyeliner styles that are smudge-proof and last for up to 16 hours.
And Don’t Forget to Clean Up Your Work
Yes, makeup erasers do exist. Check out the Lashfood Chamomile Makeup Eraser Pen. It’s strong enough to fix up waterproof formulas, eyebrow mistakes and too much liquid liner.
