We love an eyeliner’s versatility and the fact that it can completely revamp an otherwise boring makeup look. A simple flick of eyeliner is perfect for everyday wear, and you can also use it to recreate graphic eyeliner looks — a trend that has been wowing beauty buffs all around the world.
But what if we told you that we just found out about the latest eyeliner trend that delivers the best of both worlds, i.e. is striking and can be worn every day too? Enter: Double winged eyeliner! As the name suggests, this eyeliner features two different eyeliners — one on the upper lash line and the other, on the lower lash line — both flicked out.

How to create double wing eyeliner

Step 01: After you apply eyeshadow (you can skip the eyeshadow if you want too), draw a thin line across your upper lid and recreate a wing at the end. It is best to use a gel eyeliner such as the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Gel Kajal – Black for this look. Additionally, always use an angled eyeliner brush to achieve clean and precise lines. Keep the length of your wing as per your preference.
Step 02: Now, take the kajal and eyeliner brush, and create a similar eyeliner on the lash line. Extend this eyeliner from the outer corner and make a tiny wing parallel to the wing you drew earlier.
Step 03: Ensure that both the wings have a similar length and thickness for a more uniform result. But if you feel like it’s not even, you can always dip a q-tip in the Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Water and gently clean away the mistakes in no time.
Step 04: Now, take a small blending brush and smudge out the lower eyeliner slightly. This will help soften up the harshness of the lower lash line and make the eyeliner more day-appropriate.
Step 05: Finally, finish off this double-winged eyeliner by applying a coat or two of the Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara to open up your eyes instantly.
