The winged eyeliner look is one of the hottest trends in the beauty world right now. A well-drawn winged eyeliner elevates the eyes, elongating and widening it for a thoroughly glam look.
The classic winged eyeliner technique adds an extra pop of drama to eye makeup by winging out the eyeliner ends. While it can be a tricky skill to master, practice makes perfect and the precision of a winged liner reveals who’s a professional or rookie.
Talking about precision, here are some tips to help: some beauty lovers use the edge of a spoon to create a well-defined winged liner, while others use business cards or clear tape to the same end depending on the type of curve they are aiming for. Also note, when applying a winged liner your hand must be stable in order to achieve a super neat result.
Nigerian makeup artists Rhema of House of Tara and Theodora Michael are two of a number of makeup artists who have adopted a more modern winged liner as their makeup signature. The look which was made popular by makeup artist Bibyonce, is a technique that involves winging of both ends of the eyeliner.
This is a trend that has gone beyond the runway and has become a super popular makeup look that is especially suitable for social outings and evening events.
Hoping to try the look soon?
