5 Steps To A Perfect Winged Eye
We have a secret to making this simple. Grab your favorite Red Apple Eyeshadow, an eyeshadow detail brush (or thin paintbrush!), a bottle of water, and… read more to find out the secret tool!
blah blah blah
Dampen your brush with water. I like to use a cap full of water, but you can use a spray bottle or even a bathroom faucet. Make sure your brush is completely wet on both sides, but do not pump your brush up and down, as excess water can enter the ferrule and losen the bonds that hold the brush fibers in place!
Quickly drag your brush along a paper towel to remove excess water. The brush should be damp or slightly wet, but not dripping with water.
BLACK LINER USING BLACK MAGIC
Swipe your brush in your Black Magic eye shadow. Make sure you’re picking up a generous amount of product on both sides of your brush, focusing on the tip. Just a little side not-look at how awesome that Red Apple Lipstick Z-Palette is! 9 eye shadows in 1 compact, sturdy and totally cute case! I like to fold my lid underneath when I use my palette, which is quite often, as you can see!
Start at the middle of your eye lid and work your way out the the natural outer corner of your eye. Don’t worry if the line isn’t perfect-we’re going to go over it later. For this reason, you may also choose to make this line thinner than you’d like the end result to be.
Next, start from the inner corner of your eye and make a line connecting to the middle of your eye. You should now have one natural, continuous line from the inner to outer corner. You may choose to go over this line to darken or thicken it at this time.
You’re almost done. Just add the finishing touches on the outer corners and you’re finished! I just thickened the outer corner a bit to enhance the shape of my eyes.
Now you’re done! You can pop on some mascara and be good to go, or wear this liner with your favorite eye shadow look. Black Magic gluten free mineral eye shadow is perfect when used as liner because it stays put and it is a true, pure black! Stunning!
BROWN LINER USING ESPRESSO
Here, I used the same technique with Espresso! You get a softer look, perfect for daytime or more subtle makeup looks. I chose not to wing the liner out much further than my natural eye line.
GOLD LINER USING LUCKY PENNY + TAPE TRICK!
For this look, I’m going to show you how to use tape to create the perfect winged liner! This is SUPER easy and chances are you already have tape in a junk drawer in your kitchen! (Come on, fess up! You know it’s true!) Before you place the tape on your face, apply it to the back of your hand and remove it. This weakens the adhesive and makes the tape more suitable for your delicate eye are. Then, following the angle of your lower lash line, gently pat the tape onto your skin.
If you feel like your lower lash line is a too horizontal or you’d like to check your guide, follow the angle from the tip of your nose to the end of your brow. My brows are very sparse, but if I drew them in, this is right about where they’d end. Your tape should follow this same line if you’re going for a natural look.
Go ahead and “paint” on your line using Lucky Penny gluten free mineral eye shadow. Don’t worry if you get some eye shadow on the tape-you’ll pull this right off and be left with a perfect line! You can extend the line as much or as little as you like.
Remove your tape and there you have it! A unique, perfectly winged eye liner!
And there you have it – 3 different winged liner looks, 3 different colors – and they’re done ALL safe, natural, and gluten free with Red Apple Lipstick eye shadows!
