Eyeliner Hack 1: Move in steps/dots
If you aren’t used to doing winged eyeliner, an easy hack is to start by applying a thin layer of eyeliner in breaks and creating a rough road map using dots.
Once the basic dotted wing is ready, you can then make it neater by connecting the dots with a thicker outline. . It’s quite similar to the way we learned how to draw a straight line by first making dots and then joining them to get the perfect line. The perfect winged eyeliner is no less than a piece of art my ladies!
Eyeliner Hack 2: Outline and fill the wing!
Another really easy eyeliner tip is to first start by drawing the wing. For this remember to stretch your eyelid first and then draw the outline of your wing. Then, slowly extend the eyeliner into the inner corner of your eyes. Once the outline is ready, go ahead and fill that in!
Eyeliner Hack 3: Use a kajal pencil / eyeliner pen
Liquid and gel eyeliners can be tough to work with to get the perfect winged eyeliner.
Kajal and eyeliner pens on the other hand are easier when it comes to making an even eyeliner design. They don’t have as much shine as a liquid eyeliner does but you can always go over the rough roadmap you have created with your kajal pencil. When it comes to eyeliners, Lakmé really is the king. From experience, Lakmé’s liquid eyeliners are very shiny, dark and waterproof. Even their kajal pencils for that matter aren’t dull and instead are really bold and pigmented.
Eyeliner Hack 4: Use tapes to define your wings
Now if you don’t have a steady hand, the above hacks might not still help you in achieving that perfect wing.
This one however will.
Use a transparent tape right in the corner of your eye where you want the wing. Place it diagonally in such a way that it forms a wing outline which you can go ahead and fill in with your eyeliner.
Once the wing has been filled in and the eyeliner has dried, carefully remove the tapes. Move in a dotted fashion as stated in hack number 1 towards the inner corner of your eyelids to complete your perfect winged eyeliner.
Eyeliner Hack 5: Bring out those tweezers and sponges for a DIY eyeliner stamp!
This is by far the easiest and hands down the most creative way of nailing the perfect eyeliner look!
All you have to do is cut out a sponge in the shape of a triangle and dip it in a gel eyeliner or paint it with a liquid eyeliner. With the help of your tweezers, press the triangle sponge thus obtained in the outer corner of your eye to form a wing! It’s your very own DIY eyeliner stamp.
Sorry girls, but you will no longer be able to use your winged eyeliner as an excuse to be late to a party (we all are guilty of it!) because these hacks will help you get a sharp winged eyeliner in just a few seconds!
