HOW TO: WINGED EYELINER

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Hello Again!
As some of you may have noticed, I am obsessed with all things makeup. One of those things, is the winged eyeliner. For the longest time I was sure that winged eyeliner did not go with me. But later I came to find that It was just because I was doing it all wrong! lol

Although I am not nearly an expert at this, I have definitely improved my technique. I want to share with you a few of these tricks I've learned ;)






-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-
Here's what you'll need!:D
          1. Eyeliner Brush
          2. Gel Eyeliner
          3. Liquid Eyeliner
          4. Makeup Remover or Makeup Remover Wipes

How To:
                                                                                                 
step #1                                                                                     

Start off my making a tiny diagonal line on the outer end of your eye. Be sure to raise the line towards the end of your brow. I am making the line with the eyeliner brush and a little bit of black gel eyeliner.
                                                                                                 
step #2                                                                                     

Shape the line as you would like. *TIP* Do this with your eye opened. The BIGGEST mistake I used to make was closing my eye. This will make all the difference!


                                                                                                 
step #3                                                                                     
Fill in the line with the gel liner.


                                                                                                 
step #4                                                                                     

For the finishing touch: Go over the entire eyeliner with "liquid" liner. This will make the look more vibrant! Use a wipey to clean up any mistakes.



You're all done!

???  About the Products ???


Thin Eyeliner Brush- This can be a regular brush, felt tip, or brush eyeliner. I don't recommend using a pencil unless this is very thinely sharpened. A pencil is good for the waterline area. The thinner the brush, the sharper you can get your wing.
My Fav at the Moment:
Tarte Duo Eyeliner Brush. You can also find very affordable brushes at Walmart from the crafts section. I got a set of 10 for about $5...what a deal!:D


Gel Eyeliner- If you are using a brush. 
My Fav at the Moment:
Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Black. It dries completely matte without smudging. I recommend applying this quickly as it dries fast on the skin, this can make it look a bit "crusty" (could you say? lol) if you are layering the product. I also reaaaally like the gel liner from L'oreal.You can also get this from Walmart, I just used mine up and need to buy a new one. But this is a great cheaper alternative. The finish is not as matte, but this product is very easy to work with!


Liquid Eyeliner- This I like to use on top of the regular eyeliner. It will intensify the look and also help it last longer.
My Faaave at the moment:
NYC Liquid Liner. This is so so affordable and the product will last you a long time. It comes as a brush and the brush is very thin.

Wipes-
This is wonderful for those times where my eyeliner doesn't go where I want it to. If I make a little boo-boo I just take a wipe and clean it up:)
My Fave at the Moment:
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes. These are oily enough to where they don't feel like you're rubbing really hard, but not too oily either. I have very sensitive skin and I get texture on my skin from almost anything! But these wipes have not given me any issues yet.


Keep on practicing. I can promise you that It will get easier as you practice more and more;)

  4. Unlike the thick inner volume of the pear head, this
    cheap hair extensions
    gives a feeling of warmth and beauty.
    When trimming, pay attention to the tail of the real hair extensions must
    be cut from high to low level, roll up and send it to have this effect.
    This hair style can be brushed out by a hair extensions dryer and a
    reel, and it is also possible to use no special hot.
