How many times have you had to fly out the door with only minutes to spare. Barely enough time to throw makeup on, but you wanna made up, right? Well Marlena from Makeup Geek has this awesome tutorial that I stumbled across and just had to share!
Winged liner in under a minute? Get out of here. But actually, it’s possible!
Here’s my gluten free makeup product recommendations for this tutorial:
Just place the scotch tape along the outer part of your eye, using your lower lash line as a guideline. She angles it towards slightly below the end of her eyebrow, but personally I prefer to angle it right at the end of my brow. But it’s your choice! Then take your bent liner brush or any super small makeup brush and apply the eyeliner along the tape, connecting it to your upper lash line. You’ll want to fill it in to form a triangle shape- this is what gives the illusion of winged liner.
If you have an extra minute, you can turn your winged liner into a softly smudged cat eye. All you need are 2 more products:
Take a pencil brush and daub a dark brown eyeshadow (or any color for that matter) on top of your gel liner. Start to smudge it upwards to smoke out the liner, staying close to your lash line as well as the tape you placed on earlier. All you’re doing is turning the winged liner into a smudged out cat eye shape by “smoking out” the eyeshadow.
And there ‘ya have it! Pretty cool, huh? Makeup Geek is one of my all time fav makeup artists. I only wish her makeup was gluten free. But hey- at least we still have her tips, tricks and secrets! 😉
