Winged eyeliner and red lips are a timeless combination that works with almost any outfit. This elegant combo looks especially foxy when paired with a black bodycon dress and high heels. Applying red lipstick is fairly easy, but most people struggle when it comes to creating the perfect cat eye flick.
The same rules that apply to eyebrows apply to winged eyeliner. They are sisters, not twins. This means that a slight difference is okay and nobody will notice if one wing is slightly less angled than the other. Once they start looking like two completely different styles you have a problem though.
There is a trick to getting the perfect winged eyeliner. Firstly, start off by taking a small piece of paper or any other object with a straight line. Place the line so that it follows the angle of your outermost eyelash. Then draw a straight angle line from the corner of your eye. You can make this line long or short depending on your preferences. Once you have this line, draw a triangle by connecting the top of this line with the middle of your eyelid. Don’t go all the way into the corners of your eyes. Fill in this triangle. Voila! You have your cat eye.
In order to make this look seem smoother and more put together, take your eyeliner again and line your top waterline. There shouldn’t be any skin showing between your triangle and your lash line. Lining the top waterline also helps to make your eyelashes seem fuller. After this you can either apply false lashes or apply mascara.
If you make mistakes along the way, use a q-tip soaked in makeup remover to correct any mistakes. Don’t use makeup wipes since they will clear away more makeup than necessary.
