Fly High with These 5 Winged Eyeliner Techniques for Beginners
by Jenni on Jul 13, 2022
Winged eyeliner can be a challenging makeup technique to master, but with a little practice and patience, you can achieve a perfect winged look that suits your eye shape and personal style. Here are some of the best winged eyeliner techniques to try:
1. Using tape or a card: One of the easiest and most foolproof ways to create a winged liner is to use tape or a card as a guide. Simply apply a piece of tape or hold a card along your lower lash line, extending out towards your temple, and draw your eyeliner along the edge of the tape or card. Once you've finished, gently remove the tape or card to reveal a crisp, clean line.
2. Creating a stencil: Another way to create a winged liner is to make a stencil using a small piece of paper or card. Cut the stencil to match the angle and length of your desired wing, and hold it against your eyelid while you draw your liner. This technique works especially well if you struggle with shaky hands.
3. Tightlining: Tightlining is a technique that involves applying eyeliner to the upper waterline of your eye. This creates the illusion of a fuller lash line and can make your eyes appear more defined. To tightline, gently lift your upper eyelid and use a thin, pointed eyeliner brush to apply liner to the base of your lashes.
4. Freehand drawing: With a little practice, you can learn to create a winged liner freehand. Start by drawing a thin line along your upper lash line, and then draw a small flick at the outer corner of your eye. Connect the flick to the rest of your liner, making sure to keep the line thin and even. If you make a mistake, use a cotton swab dipped in makeup remover to fix it!
