The perfect winged eyeliner is an art that requires effort and concentration.
We would like to find out the most common mistakes we make when drawing winged eyeliner and tell our readers how to fix them.
10. Poorly sharpened pencil
The pencil should always be sharp before drawing the eyeliner. A sharp point will make a straight line on your eyelid much faster and without much noise.
9. Colored eyeliner on the lower lid
In most cases, a colored lower eyelid makes your appearance more severe, which does not add to your charm. Experts recommend applying only colored eyeliner to the lower eyelid when going to a theme party.
8. Asymmetrical wings
All the girls made the mistake of drawing one wing thicker than the other. So we try to “combine” them with each other, but that makes it more complicated. There is only one tip here: try to draw symmetrical wings as soon as possible, and you will soon learn how to draw them on the first try.
7. Liquid eyeliner on the lower lid
The texture of the liquid eyeliner will quickly drip under your eyes if you use it on your lower eyelid. For this reason, we advise you to remember another golden rule: liquid eyeliner is only for the upper eyelid, and a pencil is for the lower eyelid.
6. Nondurable eyeliner
As we said earlier, liquid eyeliner can drain quickly, especially if there is moisture in the eyes. To avoid this, bring some cotton swabs to correct your sloppy makeup, or just go for waterproof eyeliner.
5. A gap between the wing and the eyelashes
This little detail can ruin even the most perfect winged eyeliner, so always draw the line as close to your lashes as possible. This effect is worth your time and effort.
4. Sloppy wing tips
The beautiful winged eyeliner should have sharp, clean, slightly upturned tips. Other variations will not be as perfect and can even spoil professional makeup.
3. Stretched eyelids
If you stretch your eyelids too much when applying eyeliner, your wings will become uneven when your skin returns to normal, and it will not be perfect.
2. The painted inner part of the lower lid
This is only beautiful if you have huge eyes. Otherwise, such makeup will make your eyes visually smaller, and all major makeup artists advise against it.
1. Heavily blended eyeliner
Blending in the eyeliner that you applied on the lower lid is fine, but know your limits! If you use a large brush, you will only get the “panda effect”.
