There’s nothing we don’t love about a cat-eye, but every once and a while, we like
to mix things up. And that’s when we give our eye makeup look yet another wing.
We’re not going to lie! ! Double winged eyeliner can seem daunting, but these tricks,
make getting this gorgeous look easier than ever.
Get ready! You’ll be winging it in no time.
Make It Your Statement
This look is meant to stand out. “The double wing is a great statement piece for the face.
To keep this the focal point, its suggested toning everything else down and letting it really make a statement. Prep your skin with a tinted moisturizer and add a creamy concealer to cover up any imperfections, then set with powder for a matte look.
Perfect skin really ensures all the attention remains on your eyes.
Use Darker Colors
Obviously eyeliner is going to be the tool you have to have to get the look. Experts told us to use darker colors like black, navy, or purple to make the look really dramatic.
And don’t forget: Always use the same color for both lines!
Go for Felt Tip
Now that you know what colors to reach for, you’ve got to figure out the right type of formula.
Felt tip is the most user-friendly, because it gives you a more precise line and way more control. Many formulas, deposit a liquid formula in this super thin tip for a striking and mess-free look. But be sure to get a waterproof or long-wear version, as Joanna explains that will prevent the line from dripping or smudging.
Start With a Regular Cat-Eye
That’s the first step in creating perfect double winged eyeliner. Start with your base line and create like you would if you were applying a cat-eye, and at the end, just go up a bit more.
And then depending on the shape of the eye, you can apply the second line to either the top or bottom.”
Make Sure You Create Thin Lines
This is already a bold look, and if you draw on two super thick wings, it will over-power the eyes. Keep both wings, wherever they are placed, on the thinner side, especially if you’re wearing them during the day! Because let’s be real; we don’t just want to embrace our inner at night!
