How I Perfect Winged Liner

For years now I have been trying to perfect winged liner and now think that I am finally happy with my results. I know a lot of people will already know this technique but it is surprising how many of my friends say that they have no idea how to do winged liner.. therefore I hope this helps at least one person! 

I used Soap and Glory's Supercat liner for this however I often use gel also, if you would like to see how I do that then just let me know in the comments. 

1. First off I line my top lid with the liner. To do this I just hold the liner horizontally against my lid and glide it all the way across however do it in around 3 parts and not just one big sweep.

2. I then hold the liner from the corner of my water line and point the felt tip towards to the end of my brow. The tip of the liner is pressed down carefully and drawn back to create a line. Using the waterline as a guide works well as it helps create even liner on both eyes.

3. The very tip of the liner is then used to drawn a line from around 3 quarters of the way up the wing to the lid. Make sure this goes downwards and not straight across as that would just not look too great.

4. Finally I make the previous line on my lid thicker to incorporate the wing. This is done by tracing over the liner connecting the wing to the line and continuing it to the inner corner in a downwards motion therefore it gets thinner as it goes on. 

5. Once all of these steps are completed, I then take an angled brush and go over the liner with black powder. This sets the liner into place and also assists any mistakes by creating a soft line to fix it. I also run concealer under the wing to make it look more precise. 

Do you like winged liner?
