If you’re itching to experiment with winged eyeliner, try the v-shape trick. All you need to do is draw a line from the outer part of the lash line upwards, and connect it with your eyeliner. Avoid using the pencil directly, instead opt for an angled brush to help you get the perfect shape.

Thick AF

Ever imagined your winged liner to cover almost half your lids? No? Now is the time to ditch the regular thin line for thicker wings. This eyeliner style is not for makeup noobs. If you’re a pro at creating winged eyeliner, then this style is sure to take your eye makeup game up a notch.

Cleopatra style

This edgy eyeliner style is super dramatic, super graphic and super sharp. Use a liquid eyeliner to trace the eyes in black and bring the liner to sharp points on both the inner and outer corners of the eyes. Wear it with minimal makeup and let your eyes do the talking for you!

Triangular looks terrific

While your regular winged eyeliner extends out and curves gently up, the triangular wing adds an oomphy effect to your eye makeup. Triangular wings end at the outer corner of the eye and then flick straight up, going over the crease. Acing this eyeliner style will definitely need some practice, but once you get the hang of it, there’s no going back!

Drooling over delicate

A thin, delicate eyeliner can make for a classy statement. If you want to play it down, then this can be your go-to eyeliner style. Use the thin brush of a liquid eyeliner to nail this look. Avoid curving the wing all the way upwards, instead gently extend it to your crease line. Add definition with generous coats of mascara.
