Hello my lovelies!
Y’all know I rarely do wings, but I was just feeling something wing-y and fun. I’ve been into using pink eyeshadow, despite the fact that fucking up is relatively easy with pink shadows. I kind of hate black winged liner, which I’ve talked about before, but I also know it’s popular and I do want to try and cater to as many people as possible in one shot. This is my form of a compromise.
Doing winged liner with eyeshadow is WAY more time consuming, but if you’re a beginner, or shitty at wings like yours truly, this is a really easy way to create them. The best part is, if you really mess up, you can just blend it out a little and claim it’s a smokey wing…right? I use a standard angled eyeliner brush to lay down an outline of my wing, then just fill in with the same brush. Because I’m sure 99% know how to do a black wing and what it looks like, I decided to use some pink shimmer shadow to give this liner a little something. I’m really into how this turned out, and I’m definitely interested in recreating this with different colored shadows in the future.
Let’s get started:
- Prime the eyes and set with an eyeshadow or powder of your choice.
- Take “Stark” on a fluffy blending brush and blow it out into the crease for some dimension.
- With a small angled liner brush, lightly tap into “Blackout” and start tracing the lines for your wing. Start with the tiniest amount of black shadow possible, as it is much easier to build up than remove.
- Fill out the tail end of the wing with black shadow, blending lightly toward the middle of the eye to create an ombre. Stop once you reach halfway.
- Blend “Harajuku” starting at the inner corner and onto the black liner. The pink should appear purplish once you start blending on top of the black liner.
- If you have any messy edges or would like to sharpen your wing, take some concealer or a makeup wipe and clean away.
- Drag “Blackout” from the outer corner of the lashline, halfway in. Again, start small, you can always build up.
- Like the eyelids, pack “Harajuku” starting at the inner corner, meeting up with the black shadow.
- Blend both shadows together at their meeting point for a smooth transition.
- Highlight the tear duct for an added highlight. In this case, I used the same highlighters as the ones on my cheekbones.
- Line the waterline with a purple or black liner. I chose purple for something fun.
- Curl and coat your lashes with mascara. Apply falsies if that’s your thing.
