For a very long time I steered clear of the Winged eyeliner trend. Purely for the fact that my eyes are quite hooded (painfully annoying sometimes) and a thick, black line above my eye seemed to really emphasis that point. I love the look of winged liner and the fact that it did not suit me used to really bother me. So I decided to find a way of creating a wing that doesn’t make my eyes look like I haven’t slept for three weeks.
After lots of practice I have compiled a list of tricks for my fellow Hooded eyed pals.
– Use a liquid or gel liner rather than a felt-tipped product. Felt tips and pen products drag across the soft skin of a hooded eye, creating an uneven, bumpy line. The more liquid the product- the easier it will be to apply.
– start the line a centimetre back from the inner corner of the eye. that way you still have some of your eyelid showing.
– accentuate the inner corner and lid with a light, shimmery eyeshadow.
– keep the line thin and close to the lashline until you reach the outer third of your eye.
– place the outer edge of your flick with your eye open, looking into a mirror head on. That way you will know where the flick will sit when your eyes are open.
