How To: Winged Liner Version One

Hello my lovelies!


I’m going to get back to basics with you guys today and show you how to do some winged liner!



I know. Me. Teaching you guys how to do winged eyeliner. I promise that I’ve begun to figure my shit out though!




The reason I titled this “Version one” is because this is only ONE of MANY ways to do winged liner. This type of liner, with the thicker band and smaller wing, tends to help down-turned eyes best. A shorter, thicker winged eyeliner gives the appearance of rounder, lifted,  doll-like eyes. This shape does not necessarily flatter my eye shape best, but it can feasibly work for any eye shape, as long as you’re willing to work it!


Let’s get started:




Step 1:

Using your preferred formula, create a thin bar across the upper lashline. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect as we can smooth it out later on. My biggest tip is to always start out with the tiniest line you can make. It’s easier to build up than take away.

Step 2:

Use the corner of your eye as the starting guide, and drag the line toward the tail end of your brow. Be absolutely certain to flick your wrist (lol) at the end of this liner, as we don’t want anything too thick at the end. A liner like this is most flattering when it varies in thickness from the lashline to the flick itself.




Step 3:

Now is the time to go over any rough edges with the liner and fill in any open patches. If you prefer to do your eye makeup before foundation, now is the time to clean up the edge of the wing with a makeup wipe. You can clean the wing up with concealer if you already have foundation on.

Step 4:

Continue on by finishing the rest of your eye makeup, such as adding mascara. A great tip to complete the wing is to line the upper waterline with a black liner. This fills in that white gap between your lashes and waterline that tends to show, and is especially pronounced with black liner on the lid.


And there you have it, one version of a winged liner look all ready to go!



That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have a fabulous Friday!


Stay beautiful!

    Ugh, you’re so good at it! I’m so bad, I almost got the hang of it and then I quit practicing. I’m back at square one. 😂 Luckily, I don’t wear it that often.

      I don’t either, since it takes me a good 10 minutes to do a single eye! I’m very particular so I do a lot of cleaning up. As long as you have time to kill, it’s always good to practice.
