Blue eyeliner and eyeshadow is all the rage this Spring and Summer 2016.
In this tutorial, I created dramatic winged eyeliner using a black gel liner and the shade Gonzo from the Urban Decay Electric palette.
You can use any gel eyeliner and any blue eyeshadow!
This is great way to incorporate this trend into your makeup and it looks fresh and fun! You can watch the tutorial here.
I tried my best to include all clips of me doing the base, black liner doing because winged liner on myself has always been a struggle. I have deep set eyes, not hooded eyes but deep set eyes. There is a difference. My dad, gran and aunt have deep set eyes too.When I do winged liner, it’s like driving on a highway when one lane is closed
And dodging cones, people and other cars. . . .
Basically, it’s the bane of my existence.
With deep set eyes, you already have a pre-made crease! But the eye socket bone is prominent.
This is why I can’t apply winged liner with greater ease. If I do liner like I most of you beauties, swoop down is a single stroke from my from the wing to the upper lash line, my eyeliner will look jagged. So, I have to dodge that bone take extra to place the liner is such away that it is drawn on slightly crooked to look straight. Yes, the struggle is very real.
I also used MAC Vegas Volt which has an Amplified formula, so it’s super creamy and pigmented.
The next lip product I used was the NYX Liquid Suede in (Soft Spoken). Unlike the NYX Soft Matte Lip cream, which on me, bunches up on my lips, this formula glides onto the lips and dries down to a semi-matte finish.
It still looks matte but it is so comfortable of the lips and long-lasting. When you touch up, it doesn’t look like a cakey hot mess.
Will you try this trend? Let me know down below. Does anyone have tips on doing winged eyeliner for deep set eyes?
Until next time, stay blessed and beautiful
Love you to the moon and back!
