Today is a lovely day, its raining outside and I’m sitting in with a hot cup of coffee. I just got a text from my dearest friend asking me to do a tutorial on how to do a winged eyeliner. So, here I am. I will show you how you can create a simple winged eyeliner by yourself.
Let me just start by saying: Yes, it takes time to perfect it. When I started out, I didn’t even have the supplies. I used the Colossal Kajal as an eyeliner and drew extra LONG wings. Not only did it look unnatural, it also messed up after a few hours. As it turns out, using Kohl to create a crisp, winged eyeliner look is a BAD IDEA. I recommend getting a liquid eyeliner, first. It’s a little tricky, just like normal paint and brush you’ll get better after every try. Liquid ones cost around 50₹ onwards, depending on the brand and quality you choose. Gel liner, on the other hand, is quite pricey but I personally feel it’s much easier to perfect than the liquid eyeliner.
Let’s quickly get to the tutorial, Shall we?
STEP 1: Assess: Find out what shape your eyes are. Find the end of your eyes, close your eyes and draw a line in the upward direction.
STEP 2: Apply a thin line on eyes closest to your eyelashes.
STEP 3: Connect the line you drew in step 1 to the one you drew in step 2.
STEP 4: Apply the eyeliner once again, this time make it thicker, like shown:
STEP 5: Let it dry. Don’t touch it, don’t blow on it, just let it dry on its own. Additionally, you can use a cotton swab to wipe off any excess liner.
Pro Tip: If you have small eyes, apply a thin eyeliner and use white Kohl on your lower lash line.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is as easy as it gets. If you still have problems perfecting this technique, I recommend getting eyeliner stencils which you can just place on your eye and fill ’em up! Easy Peasy!
