Guest post: The PERFECT winged eyeliner tutorial

(Full disclosure: My eyeliner skills are not exactly perfect. It took a lot of time before I ventured into experimenting with liquid liner. The winged eye however, always eluded me. The flick from the end of my eye would always mess up. 

Today we have Ranjini, a friend of mine who has the BEST eyeliner game I have seen. So what better than to ask her to walk us through the steps of creating a perfect winged eye? – Varsha)

  1. Draw a thin line over the eyelid with the pointed end of your brush to mark the thickness. 1
  2. Fill in keeping the brush flat, making sure you don’t get any on your eyelashes to prevent unwanted clumping. 3.1
  3. Holding the brush at an angle, draw a thin line – as if you’re extending your waterline.  step3
  4. From the edge of the new line, bring the brush back to the thick outline to obtain a triangular shape. 4
  5. Smoothen out the point of contact, else leave as is. Fill in any spaces, making sure there’s enough product on the brush or there’s a good chance you might wipe out the existing liner with a dry brush. 5
  6. Use kohl to line under your waterline, halfway. This will make your eyes look bigger. 6

Final note: 

Do the same for the other eye, and apply mascara to achieve more definition.
