The Winged Eyeliner look or cat eye which is what many girls call it, seems very hard to get right. So what’s the trick or should I say the tip to get this bad girl look?
You have to have a slant eyeliner brush, liquid liner shaped like a calligraphy pen or my favorite cream/gel eyeliner. The line should start as thin as possible on an angle and grow thicker toward the outer corner of your natural curve of your eye. I suggest taking the “wings” up to a few centimeters.
Another tip, but I can’t take credit for this one, is to trace a business card or an old credit card and angle your wings to match up. Makeup Artist Kathy Jeung likes to use this step when working with Gwen Stefani.
Just have a steady hand and practice, practice, practice. Try it out and let me know if it works for you.
