Getting the perfect winged eyeliner can be a difficult task, let alone a graphic winged eyeliner. Especially if you have to use liquid eyeliner for your makeup look. However, with the right technique, you can master these winged eyeliner looks and enhance your eye makeup skills within a few minutes. Here are two step-by-step guides on how to use liquid eyeliner to get a classic winged eyeliner and a graphic winged eyeliner look:
How to draw a winged eyeliner using a liquid eyeliner?
Yes, getting the classic winged eyeliner look requires skill and a steady hand, but with a little practice and the right technique, it is completely possible. Here’s how you can get it right.
- With liquid eyeliner, create an angle with your brows by drawing a long line along the outside of your eyes. Depending on the required length of the wing, adjust the length.
- Place the eyeliner tip where this line ends, then draw a line that curves slightly inward and extends to the inner corner of your eye. If you find it tough to extend the same line all the way in one motion, start at least halfway into your top lash line and keep going until you reach the inner corner. Try to ensure that the line gradually becomes thinner.
- Fill in the space up to the point when no skin can be seen between your wing’s upper and lower lines. And there you go; you have your classic winged eyeliner using a liquid eyeliner. If you wish to make your eye makeup bolder, you can always extend the wings and the line above your eyelid. You can use Lancôme’s Artliner Eyeliner to get flawless winged eyeliner. The eyeliner contains pigments that are rich and deep, providing the most intense colour for your dramatic look.
How to draw a graphic winged eyeliner using a liquid eyeliner?
A graphic winged eyeliner is also called a cleopatra look. You can make this look seem as dramatic or subtle as you like. This graphic eyeliner is bold enough to stand out on its own but it may also be paired with a stunning eyeshadow for a simply magnificent result. Here’s how you can draw a graphic winged eyeliner with a liquid eyeliner.
- The base for a graphic winged eyeliner is a winged eyeliner itself.
- So, to begin, align your upper lash line and create a wing (follow the stps above for the same).
- Create a floating liner directly over your crease as your next step.
- Continue the line until it reaches the wing at the external corner of the floating liner.
- You can intensify the thickness of the floating line and stretch the upper portion out for a bolder wing design, depending on your preferences.
- Additionally, line your lower lid partially—the thicker the line, the better the graphic eyeliner look. Just make sure to leave your inner lower corner unlined for the perfect style. .
- You can use Lancôme’s Artliner Eyeliner which comes in different shades like black, brown and blue to enhance your graphic eyeliner look.
Precautions you need to take while using a liquid eyeliner to draw these winged eyeliners:
- Make sure the eyeliner wand is not damaged and you can draw fine lines using the liquid eyeliner to avoid any smudges
- Avoid applying a liquid eyeliner over a damp/wet area as it can smudge easily before even letting you draw the winged eyeliner.
- Choose the right liquid eyeliner which has rich colour pigments to give you a long-lasting look. Lancôme’s Artliner Eyeliner has rich colour pigment and comes in unique colours such as Brown Metallic and Blue Metallic apart from black.
