Winged Eyeliner Tutorial

Types of Eyeliners to Use for Your Winged Eyeliner

  1. Liquid Eyeliner: This specific type of eyeliner can come in two different forms. You can either have a felt-tip end or a brush end. The brush end will usually have a little more movement and flexibility while the felt-tip pen is more stiff.

    Liquid eyeliner can also come in the form of a pen shape, as shown in this video, where you very much hold it as a regular pencil. The other kind of liquid eyeliner will be a removable cap that has an attached brush that will then be either felt-tip or brush-tip. 

    In this video Maggie used a felt-tip pen to do her winged eyeliner.  

  2. Gel/Cream Eyeliner: Again this type of eyeliner comes in many different forms. You can get your gel or cream eyeliner in a pot that you then apply to your eye using a brush. This is another great product to make winged eyeliner with. These are also typically wax based, so they are more likely to be smudge proof and last all day.

    There are also crayon cream eyeliners. This simply will be the types of eyeliners that come in the form of a pencil but instead of being a pencil eyeliner will be more of a waxy crayon consistency. Also great for smudge proof wear, and fantastic for getting in your waterline. 

  3. Pencil Eyeliner: The pencil eyeliner is the least likely to be used for winged eyeliner. This kind of eyeliner is typically not as opaque unless it is a kohl pencil liner. Those tend to be creamier than a regular pencil liner. 

    Pencil liners can be great to make a very soft wing as well. You would simply apply your tape as discussed below, and then draw a soft line, not worrying too much on creating a winge yet, and then you would blend that out using a stiff brush to create a very light and soft wing. This is also great for getting into your waterline. 

How to Do Your Winged Eyeliner With Tape

  1. Start by gathering your tape and ripping your first piece of tape. You can do this before you have done your foundation or after. 

    Note: if you do choose to do this after your foundation be cautious that the tape will most like remove some of the makeup you already have down on your skin. 

  2. Angle the tape toward the tail of your eyebrow, while looking down slightly. You want to be sure to keep your eyes sort of half open because this is the same angle you will be looking at when you apply your winged eyeliner. 

  3. Press the tape into place. Make sure that it is secure and there are no bumps or gap in your tape. If there are any gaps or bumps you can simply peal the tape off and apply it again. 

  4. Using small strokes start where the tail of your eyeliner will go and begin drawing in your wings. Continue to use small strokes and bring the line toward the inner corner of your eye, thinning the line as you go. 

  5. Peel the tape off of your eyes, buffing out any harsh lines it may have caused with your finger. 

  6. In case your eyeliner is not as sharp as you would like it or had bled through the tape a bit you will want to use this next step. Grabbing your concealer and a concealer brush make a dot of the concealer on the back of your hand. Then, add a little bit of your concealer to your brush and, using small strokes, sharpen the line where your eyeliner ends. 

    Pro Tip: "I always dot my concealer on the back of my hand and dip my brush into it because that way I am not applying too much concealer at once. If I do this it can sometimes be difficult to fully blend out all of that concealer." - Maggie Connelly

  7. Once you are happy with the way your eyeliner looks, apply your mascara and you are all done!

Wow what a great tutorial. I have tried very often to do the winged look as I really like it. I never thought of using an accessory to help me along. I always thought you had to be good enough at freehand and 'practice makes perfect'. The problem is that you are on your way out when you do your make-up and can't afford to have mishaps to get the practice. If I make a mess I would use cue tips to touch it up.

I love this tape idea! I would love additional tips on how to keep your eyeliner from smudging (and other eyeliner techniques). Love this video!

Love this. I can never get my eyeliner even, so the tape idea is genius!

I would love to see some tips on how to do other eyeliner techniques. I am the worst at keeping it even.

You should do a highlighting/strobing tutorial next! Because your glow is on point.

Wow her makeup is so pretty! Especially her highlight

She explained it so well, I'm going to try this later!
