5 Innovative Eyeliner Tools to Achieve a Perfect Winged LookSeptember 30, 2022
We love a great winged eyeliner, but sometimes the easier option is to just swipe on some mascara and call it a day. Even expert cat-eye lovers can struggle with achieving a flawless and even finish. But we have good news — with the right tools (think: stamps, stencils and even eyeliner erasers), you can get a fierce winged liner look every time — without the stress or risk of messing up. So ditch the cotton swabs and micellar water and check out these beauty editor-approved eyeliner tools, ahead.
Try a Winged Eyeliner Guide
Beautyblender Liner.Designer makes eyeliner application super easy. Just line up the triple-edged tool as a steady guide and use a high-pigmented gel formula like the Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil Eyeliner to create a bold cat eye.
Editor’s Tip: If you want to try and freehand your wing, try drawing tiny dots along your upper lash line and connecting them for a smooth finish.
Try a Winged Eyeliner Stencil
The 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. We suggest using a precise, pigmented liquid liner like the L'Oréal Paris Makeup Infallible Flash Cat Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner with it. The stencil can also help you apply your bottom liner and map out your smoky eye look.
Try Winged Eyeliner Stickers
Maitys Eyeliner Stickers create the illusion that you did all of the work when all you did was adhere these stickers on the outer corners of your eyes. The glitter-coated black stickers are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. The kit includes 36 pairs of adhesive black stickers. They’re the definition of an easy eyeliner look.
