Winged out (2x)

Double winged eyeliner is all the rage these days with celebrities. I’m not much of a “OMG I want to be just like Kim Kardashian!” kind of gal, but the girl is pretty and her makeup is usually flawless, so I dont mind stealing a few ideas.

As you can see her eyeliner is winged from both the bottom and top lash line. Where typically it just comes out from the top. “Winged” means that the eyeliner extends past the normal corner of your eye, usually not too dramatic, and helps your eyes look wider and your lashes larger. Its a neat affect, and like in my last post you can see can be done in a number of different ways. I personally like it with a bit of color!


Any way you do it the affect can be eye catching! I love my eyeliner from Physicians Formula Eye Definer Felt-Tip Eye Marker retailed only at $6.95! It allows me to draw some great designs with pin-point precision. Even if color is too much, using the eyeliner in black like the top picture above can really just give you an extra boost to a daily makeup routine. Why not right? Try it out! Practice makes perfect. I suggest the first few times pulling a bit, SOFTLY, at the outer part of your eye to tighten the skin to make an easier line. But dont pull too hard, the skin around your eye is very delicate!

Until next time!
