Bold eyeliner is often a trend seen in runway shows, no matter what the season. Makeup artists are always trying to find new and unique ways to use liner to accentuate the eyes, whether this means adding bright colors, geometric shapes or even embellishments. Although these liner trends seem to come and go, one that seems to have stuck is the winged eyeliner look. With everyone from celebrities on the red carpet to models on the runway wearing it, tons of people seem to be loving this cat-like look and many are even trying it out in new ways to put their own spin on it.
This Fashionista put her own twist on winged liner by adding a small extra wing to her lower lash line, creating a double wing on her eyes. Her look starts with neutral eyeshadows that define her crease, but mainly serve as a simple backdrop for her bold eyeliner. The top liner is just a basic wing created with black liquid liner, but by adding a small wing to the bottom this Fashionista gives a unique and edgy touch to her eyes. The two wings give her look a subtle Cleopatra-inspired vibe that’s still very wearable and cool. The rest of her makeup remains simple and natural, making her eyes the main focus.
As this Fashionista shows, a winged liner can be a great way to draw some attention to your eyes, giving them an upward lift and a slightly sultry feel. Plus, winged liner works great on all eye shapes, and depending on the thickness and length of the wing, it can be used in looks for both day and night!
What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To recreate this look, you’ll need to start with some nude eyeshadow placed all over your lid, and then a bit of a darker neutral color to define your crease. Then, use a black liquid liner along your lash line and to create your wing. Be sure that your wing goes from the corner of your eye up towards the end of your eyebrow. Then add another smaller wing going slightly downward from your lower lash line. Finish off with a couple coats of volumizing mascara for a look that will really make your eyes pop.
