How To Apply Winged Eyeliner

Winged Eyeliner Tutorial Curling Eyelashes

1. Use an eyelash curler to clamp your lashes at the root of your upper lash line. Hold for 5 seconds and repeat on the other eye to open up your eyes and make you look more awake.

2. Draw a very thin line along your upper lash line, keeping close to the root of your eyelashes and stopping just before the outer corner of your eye.

3. Use a cotton bud to angle diagonally between the end of your eyebrow and your outer corner of your eye to perfectly angle your feline flick. This is the perfect tool to help you keep your eyeliner straight and create an even winged liner look for both eyes.

4. Draw a dot where you want your winged eyeliner to end, about halfway up the cotton bud. This will help you connect the two for a perfect cat-eye.

5. Holding the cotton bud in place, connect the dot with the end of your eyeliner on your upper lash line. The cotton bud will keep your line straight! The liquid eyeliner will give you an intense black line, so if you smudge it at all, you can use a moisturiser on the cotton bud to neaten up any edges.
