Step 3 – Line the Top of Your Lashes
Start your winged eyeliner by applying a thin line over along your top lash line, keeping as close to your lashes as possible.
We recommend starting at the inner corner and drawing the liner outwards to meet the outer.
Step 4 – Create Your Flick
Now comes the scary part! Remember that practice makes perfect, so don’t be put off if you don’t master the winged eyeliner look first time around!
Whether you’re using tape or going freehand, your flick should be angled as if it’s extending from your bottom lash line.
Follow that invisible line with your eyeliner, outlining the bottom of your wing. Then, connect your flick tip to the top lash liner to complete the wing.
Expert tip: Made a mistake? Don’t worry! You can fix any mishaps with a Q-tip dipped in makeup remover or concealer.
