Today’s EOTD (Eye of The Day) features the double-winged eyeliner look. Wear this to school or to a weekend outing! Double-winged eyeliner creates a Japanese anime-like look that adds an interesting yet simple twist to your eye makeup.
- Apply Too Faced Shadow Insurance on entire lid.
- Apply MAC E/S in “White Frost” on lower lid.
- To create depth, apply a light brown color like MAC E/S in “Wedge” along crease with a fluffy blending brush.
- Pack on more of MAC E/S in “White Frost” on lower lid to bring out the white color and to create a greater contrast with your crease.
- Apply MAC E/S in “Shroom” as highlight.
- Line upper lash line with a black gel or liquid liner, like Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in “Black Ink”. Then extend the line (create a wing) by following the natural curve/angle of your lower lash line.
- Using the same black gel liner, draw a slightly shorter inner wing. Start by following the line on the middle of your upper lash line and then extend upwards and out to create a curvier second wing.
- Gently smudge the ends of each wing to fade them. You can use a pencil brush like MAC 219 or a Q-tip.
- Curl your lashes and apply black mascara to both your upper and lower lashes.
Tip: Rest your pinky finger on your cheek to help stabilize your hand as you’re lining your eyes. If you’re still a bit shaky, rest your elbow on the table as well. Gel and liquid liner can be a bit challenging, especially for those new to eye lining. You may want to try using a small angled brush with black eyeshadow (try MAC 266 brush with MAC E/S in “Carbon” — that’s what I did!), and line and wing your eyes this way until you’re comfortable trying gel or liquid liners. I also find that using a bent gel liner brush makes the application much easier for me as well.
