Colorful Winged Liner

Winged out liner is a very popular makeup look.  This is not a new concept but you can make it your own by adding color to it.  I decided to use a bright color to make this trend stand out even more.  With a little practice you can incorporate color to your winged out liner technique as well!

Here's how I created the look:
  1. Make the wing shape first with E.L.F Studio Cream Eyeliner by starting at the tail end of the eye and extending the wing outwards.  Use an angle or fine brush, this will make it easier to draw the line. 
  2. Connect the line from the corner of the eye to the center of the lid.  You can make the line as thick as you want by gradually building up the liner. 
  3. Pat Maybelline Color Tattoo on the center of the lid with a flat brush and go over it with MAC Pearglide Intense Liner. 
  4. Apply a small amount of MAC Eye Shadow in Parfait Amour to make the color pop more.
  5. Add mascara and a set of lashes to create a really glamorous look.
What do you think of the colorful winged liner?  This is a beauty look that definitely won't go unnoticed.  Hope you guys enjoy it!

More Than One Way to Wear Eyeliner

Eyeliner is one of my favorite cosmetics to use.  It can give you a dramatic look without much time or effort. A soft or dramatic line, can change your look from day to night instantly.  In this look, I used MAC Designer Purple Eyeliner on my lips to show how versatile this product can be.  The eyeliner is a vivid violet color with shimmer.  It glides on super smoothly and lasts all day.  I don't wear this everyday, however it's nice to have an alternative to just wearing eyeliner on the lid or waterline.  Some of you may be thinking "this is too bold" and you're right!  But I like to get as much use out of pricey products that I can.

I hope you enjoy this look and get inspired to try different techniques with your own eyeliners.
