Hello Day 8! (Almost Day 9)
Today’s theme is a winged liner, so I’m going to show yall a fool proof winged liner trick using some tape and gel liner.
I went ahead and did a simple eyeshadow look so all the attention is on the wing. I kept the whole look subdued so it’s wearable and great for the holidays. I used shadows from the Too Faced Le Grande Palais.
For a base shade, I used a matte cream shade called “Vintage Lace” and in the crease, I placed “Cobblestone”, a soft neutral brown. “Then Moon Light on Their Wings” on the lid and inner corner for some shine and sparkle.
Now for the liner, this part might take some practice and get used to but it’s worth it. Especially if you want to do and extreme wing.
The first thing you will need is tape. I’m using medical tape because I have it on hand. Scotch tape will do just fine. Be sure to stick it on the back of your hand to remove some of the tackiness. You don’t want to unnecessarily tug around the delicate by your eye. I’d also recommend doing this before foundation.
Once you’ve made sure the tape isn’t too sticky, place it from the corner of you eye going toward the tail of your brow. You can adjust the placement as you need to suit your eye shape and needs. Also be careful to place the tape as even as possible on both eyes for they look the same.
After you, tape is placed, began by lining your upper lash line and drag the liner out to the tape. The tape will keep the line crisp and neat. Just keep building until you have your desired thickness then remove the tape.
I added a haze of black liner to the lower lash line and finished up my makeup and mascara. Sadly, my eyes are still irritated from allergies and watered like crazy the whole time.
Anyway, there you have it. the easiest way to do a winged liner I have found.
