Hi beauties. ☼
How I do my winged liner has been highly requested, so I thought I’d do a step-by-step guide to show you how I get my ‘perfect’ winged eyeliner using my trust L’Oreal Super Liner in Black Lacquer (click here for a review) 🙂
Before I begin, I just want to say practice makes perfect, I used to suck big time at doing any liner, but after practicing & practicing I think I’ve finally got it. Although, I do still struggle with gel liner, so I’ve been trying to master this art too.
Anyway, let’s get started…
To start with I’ll usually lay down a shimmer base onto my lid or just ensure the lids are powdered to make it easier to glide the liner on! I start by lining the outer corners of my eyes, just at the base of the lashes.
Next I connect the line I just made to the inner corners of my eyes. I make sure this line is very thin, especially in the tear duct area! I rest my little finger on my cheek so I know I will achieve a straight, thin, line, as this supports the hand.
I then like to map out where my wing will go. To do this I draw a straight line from the bottom lashes, angling towards the end of the brow. This is a good trick as it helps you get more even wings.
After creating the ‘guide line’ for the wing, I like to connect it back to the liner I already did. To do this I place my brush at the top of the line (as seen in pic) & drag it to connect with the liner which was previously done. You should then get a triangle type shape like so.
I then fill in the triangle which we have just created with the liner. Make sure the liner is right into those lashes, if not it can look a bit odd! When you have finished this step you have pretty much finished your liner. Obviously you just do the same to the other eye & you should get pretty even liner.
*REMEMBER: eyebrows are sisters not twins, it’s the same for your liner!!*
If you make any mistakes just take a cotton bud (or q-tip) & lightly rub it over the mistake. The liner should come off easily without wetting the cotton bud (if it doesn’t come off, just wet it a tiny bit!).
Once you have finished both eyes, look straight on in a mirror to make sure they look as even as you can get them. If not use the cotton bud step to neaten/even it up or use your liner to add more to whichever eye needs it.
I hope this step-by-step tutorial has been helpful for you. Let me know if it has or hasn’t, so I know what to change next time!
Also, let me know if you’d like me to film a more in-depth video tutorial on how I do my eyeliner. ☺
Lots of Love Natasha ❤
