Achieving The Perfect Winged Liner for Hooded Eyes πŸ‘

I’m back with a beauty post! I asked on Instagram what I should cover today and beauty barely won. I thought I’d share my tips on how I achieve my winged liner look, as I have hooded eyes which sometimes makes it more difficult to do nice eye looks.

First of all, for me it all depends on which product you use. I have had LOADS of liquid liners, most of which are πŸ’© BUT when you find the right one, you’re golden. One liner I totally recommend is the Make Up Gallery Liquid Liner from Poundland. It holds up really well and is easy to apply. It’s not my favourite though. My absolute favourite is by Lottie London (pictured below) but I have a feeling it’s been discontinued.

This is a duel ended liner with a stamp style end but in all honesty, I find it harder to use that end, which is meant for convenience πŸ˜‚

I use the pointy pencil end which is really quite thick but the point is super precise!

It’s important to say firstly that this won’t be everyone’s way of doing it but this works well for me.

Step 1: Line the Lid

Line as close to the lid as possible from your inner corner. Keep the thickness as consistent as you can apart from in the inner corner. I like a thick line as it helps integrate the wing later on.

Step 2: Begin the Ascent ✈️

Create a thin line at around a 45 degree angle ready for your wing. The length of this depends on how dramatic you want the wing to be! I tend to keep mine quite short so there’s less chance of me messing up πŸ˜‚

Step 3: Join it together

Starting around a third of the way from the top of the wing, create a triangular slope until it comfortably meets the rest of the liner. As you can see, the wing and the thickness of the line on the eye is similar so it all works together really nicely! This is ideal for my hooded eye as it fills my limited lid space and doesn’t make my eyes look tiny!

I’m sure you all have much better ways of doing winged liner but hopefully my (very basic) guide will help someone. I struggled with wing liner for YEARS and especially on other people but this seems to work for me when I work on others too!

If you try it, let me know if it works for you πŸ™‚
