Use tape to get the perfect wing!
A few posts ago, I made reference to something I call “the tape method” and I said that I would do a follow up showing how to do it. Well…it is super easy and I probably just could have easily explained it using my words–but who doesn’t like pictures to go with? This is simply going to show you another way to apply winged liner if you have a difficult time getting a “perfect” wing or if you don’t have steady hands. A few considerations: If you have sensitive skin, don’t put tape on it! You can also do this by holding a business card or something with a hard edge up diagonally against your eye….I would have shown this instead of tape but it is a wee bit difficult to hold a business card up to your eye and photograph it at the same time :::only have so many hands:::. Products Used: Tape and Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Liner in “Blackest Black”. Thin eyeliner brush

    Apply a piece of tape underneath the eye so that it is pointed towards the end of the brow. If you want a less angled wing then angle it further down—it is up to you. The placement of your tape is going to dictate the angle of your wing. You may want to hold off applying your under eye concealer and foundation because the tape is going to take it off wherever it is placed. Your piece of tape does not need to be this long-I was just showing it for effect. Wherever you place it, make sure that it is pressed against your skin so that when you apply your liner none of it bleeds through. It should look something like this:

    Apply your gel liner to the upper lash line from the inner corner to the end of your eye….don’t worry if it is a little messy-we are just getting the base and will even it out later. Now apply the “Wing” part by following the line that the tape created…don’t worry about making a perfectly straight line-that is what the tape is for..it is going to make one for you. It will look something like this:

    Remove the tape. Now “fill in your wing” –you can see how to do this by checking out step 5 of this tutorial. Apply your fake eyelashes, (I used Kiss Ever Pro #05 lashes) and go over any excess glue with gel liner. Apply some mascara to blend your real lashes into your fake lashes. Your final product will look something like this:
