LeStruggle...Winged Eyeliner + 9 Awesome Ways of Rocking It!

Yaaaayyyy!!... It was so exciting shooting this. 

When creative juices start flowing, you really can't stop it you know. To make it even more relaxing, I was listening to "Adele - Hello" throughout (on REPEAT). Amazing song.

Ok, let's get straight to work. I'd be teaching you how to get the conventional winged liner from scratch to end. 

In addition, I will be showing you 9 awesome ways of rocking it! YES! N-I-N-E! :D

I will be using "Sleek DIP IT eyeliner" for all the looks. There are other liners you can use such as gel liners or pen liners.

Whichever eyeliner you have, don't dispose of it oh!...Just keep practicing with it.

I like this particular liner because it's easy to hold when applying. Long handle, short liner brush.

It even became easier to apply after I diluted it with eyedrops, want to learn how to? click here

Step 1:
Start from the middle of your eye, make sure it's close to your eyelashes! Make it as straight and smooth as possible. Work your way to the inner corner of your eyes then the outer corner of your eye. 

Step 2:
Your liner should look like this now (the liner I am using dries up really fast).

Step 3:
You can either wait for the liner to dry up completely while working on your other eye or just continue. It is advisable to work on the second eye, helps you gauge both eyes ensuring it is symmetrical.

Step 4:
Using the liner brush, measure a couple of inches away from your eye. It is dependent on the length of winged liner you are trying to achieve. Ensure it's symmetrical with the shape of the inner corner of your eye.

Step 5:
Now, draw a straight line.

Step 6:
Using the end of the line you've drawn, connect it to the dried up eyeliner forming a triangle. At this point, paint the centre of the triangle. Voila!

You are not expected to be a pro on your first try (Lord knows how many times I tried, still not so perfect at it), KEEP PRACTISING.
