The Only Guide To Applying Eyeliner That You’ll Ever Need…

Even if you’re not the type who’s interested in more complex makeup looks, eyeliner is something of a standard go-to for most people when it comes to a makeup routine. When applied correctly, eyeliner can perk up your eyes by drawing attention to them. Better still, there’s no end to the different types of lines you can create from winged to cat-eye to even the currently trending reverse cat-eye: Eyeliner is a versatile yet staple makeup item that should be in everyone’s cosmetics bag. 

But if you’re not quite sure how to nail a cat-eye line or how to achieve the perfect winged eye if you have hooded eyes, then you’re going to appreciate this simple crash course, which proves that applying eyeliner doesn’t require a degree in physics or taking a YouTube influencer’s master class.

Wing-tip eye liner

No-fail pro tips:

  • A wing can be achieved with any kind of eyeliner, but liquid and felt-tip liner pens with tapered brush heads often provide the best precision. 
  • If you’re concerned about smudging—a common problem for applying eyeliner to monolids—opt for a waterproof liner. 
  • Victoria Stiles, a celebrity MUA and creative director of ShikSona Beauty, notes that first aid tape makes an excellent stencil for wings. “Cut two 2-inch pieces of tape. Place them under the bottom lash line in the outer corner of each eye, pointing them diagonally upward toward the temples of the face,” she says.
