Hey guys! I thought I would take this opportunity to write about something which I am frequently asked and praised about: my liquid eye liner.
At this point I think it’s important to admit… I definitely have an addiction to my wings. I have been practising and perfecting my technique over five years… FIVE YEARS – and it has been my every day make up for this amount of time. Here are a few photos to mark my progression:
In the past five years I have tried many different types of liquid eye liner but there has only been ONE which I have always been able to rely on, and that is Rimmel London Exaggerate Liquid Eye Liner in 100% black
The applicator brush on this eye liner is sturdy enough to confidently glide across my eyelid without it flinging all over the place – an issue which I have encountered with many other liquid eye liners.
Another major plus is that this eye liner is SO long lasting – I have never had a smudge or fade issue with this product. A massive thumbs up from me!
So here is my brief step-by-step guide on how I actually apply my winged eye liner:
STEP ONE – Glide the liner across the lash line, making as straight and smooth a line as possible
STEP TWO – Create the basis of your wing by making a line from the outer lid to the corner of your eye
STEP THREE – Fill in your wing. I try to make this joining as smooth as possible in order to create a more ‘natural look’
THE FINAL PRODUCT:
I hope this tutorial was as fun to read as it was to make! If you have any more questions or tips I’d love to hear from you, so please comment below.
