I’ve been asked a couple times how I apply my eyeliner and if I can do a tutorial on it. For me, plenty of practice and a hella load of patience has helped me tonnes. I wanted to share with you my top tips for creating the perfect winged liner. To start off with you wanna find the right liner for you now I don’t know the ‘official’ names of liners so you’ll have to bear with me but I will pop in a lil photo so that you know what I’m talking about.
The OG liner.
Lets start with what I’d call the ‘OG’ of liners which I would call the ‘liquid’ liner this has a little brush crewed into a pot of liquid liner and you can pick them up from literally anywhere cheap as chips; they were most likely the first eyeliner in your makeup bag and in my opinion, they’re the worst. They’re hard to use and your brush is likely to be too stiff or too soft and that makes it hella hard to apply the liner, Some people do get along with these though so do check them out and see what you think because you can get them so cheap it wouldn’t really make much of a difference to your purse if you hate it.
Mousse and gel
Pencils & Felts
I started off doing a wing with a pencil liner but they’re very faint as they’re only really used for waterlines but I found them easy because they’re easiest to hold and you don’t have to be really steady with them, finding felt liners has honestly changed my eyeliner game. For me a felt is my ‘go to’ there’s much more control with it which makes it easier to apply in my opinion, They’re also quite pigmented which I like and when it runs out you can take the nib out and switch it around to save yourself some money.
The hacks :
How to create the perfect wing :
- Place the pen from the corner of your eye towards the end of your brow (with the lid on), This is where your wing is going to go, using that guide draw a small straight line.
- Keep as close to your eye as you can and using small strokes draw a line from the inner corner of your eye outwards.
- Using your pen take the tip of your first line and join it up to the line across your lid.
- smooth over the whole wing and fill in any gaps or sparse areas.
- Take some concealer on a small (preferably angled if you have it) brush and clean up the edges.
