Winged eyes have been trending for decades and will not be going away anytime soon. I like any other girls have loved this trend since I first set my eyes on it, I would look at celebrities and people and wonder how would I look with it and how would I be able to do it so perfectly and precious. So yes, I first stared at people for months before I actually had the guts to try. Well at first it was a mess, there’s no one that could say that the first time they tried a winged eye they got it. At times one eye would be perfect and the other eye looked like a nightmare, but with a lot of practice and thousands of earbuds I was able to perfect this trend. So don’t sweat if you don’t get it right the first time.
The picture above will guide you to the perfect winged eye, just follow the different steps. However if that doesn’t work then you can try one of these tricks:
*Use tape. Yes I know it sounds dumb, but it will help. Put tape, not sellotape,from the middle to the side of your eye, then take your liner and follow the tape. Once its dry slowly take off the tape.
*Use a spoon. Take a spoon holding towards the outer part of your eye and then take the liner and follow the curve of the spoon. (You can also use a spoon when applying mascara to avoid it from messing on your eye.)
*Use your normal eyeliner. Take your normal black eyeliner and a lighter, and light the tip of your liner. Don’t light it too much. it must just be a bit melty, leave it to cool for a few seconds and apply as liquid eyeliner.
If you do make a small mistake, don’t take off the whole liner, take an earbud and make it abit wet, and just erase the small mistake and then do that part over. Getting the perfect winged eye takes a lot of mistakes, practice and the perfect liner. I personally love Essence Liquid Eyeliner (R57,95) and Rimmel Exaggerating Eyeliner (R99,95), both available at Clicks. I hope these tips help and within time you will also be able to perfect this not-so-hard trend :).
