The art of crafting impeccable eye wings can enhance the beauty of your eyes and take your entire look to the next level. Achieving that flawless winged effect is undeniably captivating, but it’s no secret that it can be a challenging skill to acquire.
How can I create perfect eye wings?
Creating perfect eye wings takes some practice, but with the right guidance and patience, you can master this timeless style.
Prepare Your Tools
Start by gathering all your essentials. For example, you’ll need eyeliner (liquid, gel, or pencil), a small angled brush, and makeup remover on a cotton swab for clean-up.
Begin with a thin application of eye primer on your eyelids. This step creates a smooth canvas for your eye makeup and helps it last longer, ensuring your wings stay sharp all day or night.
Choose the Right Eyeliner
The type of eyeliner you use depends on personal preference and skill level. Liquid liners offer precise lines, gel liners provide more control, and pencils are often recommended for beginners due to their forgiving nature.
Begin your winged journey at the inner corner of your upper lash line. Draw a thin line as close to your lashes as possible to serve as the starting point for your wings.
Before drawing your wing, decide on its length and angle. The wing’s angle can vary, and its length depends on your preference and eye shape. To get it just right, imagine an invisible line connecting the outer corner of your eye to the tip of your desired wing.
Draw the Wing
Extend a line from the outer corner of your upper lash line toward the tip you envisioned earlier. This line should gently angle upward, giving that classic winged effect.
Connect the Lines
Next, create the wing by drawing a line back from the tip of your wing to your upper lash line, forming a triangle or wing shape. Ensure the triangle is symmetrical and fill it in for a bold, defined look.
Thicken the Liner
With the wing in place, gradually thicken the eyeliner on your upper lash line as you move towards the wing. It’s important to keep the line thin near the inner corner and gradually increase the thickness as you approach the wing.
