Let’s ex­plore winged eye­liner The tools you need to rock this bold make-up look

This bold make-up trend doesn’t re­quire a spe­cial oc­ca­sion, amaz­ing skills with liq­uid liner or even a steady hand. But you may need a few ex­tra tools to rock it

Aliq­uid liner pen is es­sen­tial if you want to pull off this time­less eye make-up trick – the wing, also known as the cat eye. But the crisp pre­ci­sion and budge-proof pig­ment of liq­uid liner can be in­tim­i­dat­ing, so we asked a make-up artist for her help.

DO A DOU­BLE TRACE

Start with your pre­ferred liner – gel or freshly sharp­ened pen­cil – to map out the shape, then trace back over it with a liq­uid liner to give it a sharp, pol­ished edge. An an­gled brush dipped in gel liner makes it eas­ier. Steady your hand by rest­ing the lower part against your cheek.

HOW TO WING IT

The trick is to work back­wards so you don’t end up with an an­gle that’s too high or curly. Place your liner tip just out­side the eye above the outer lashes, and draw a line down to the outer cor­ner of the lash line. You can widen the wing by adding a sec­ond line slightly above the first, then fill­ing in the gap.

TAKE A STEP BACK

Is your wing messy, un­even or too thick? Noth­ing a swipe or two with a fine-tipped brush or pointy cot­ton tip and a bit of make-up re­mover can’t fix. Voila!
