Winged liner has been a big trend for the last couple of years, a trend that takes a lot of precision to pull off. It took a long time for me to master it, but I've put together some tips that might help if you're still trying to perfect it.
1. Line your entire eye first.
Lining your eyelid first can help prevent the dreaded "panda eyes" look. Once you finish lining your lid, half the work is done! Yay!
2. Use the right brush.
You want to make sure that your brush has the ability to make ultra precise lines. I personally like brushes like the ones I've posted to the left. Another great tool is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper; the brush is ultra dense and precise.
3. Start where you want to finish.
You want to start with the tip of the wing first, that way you can make sure the wings are even before you fill them in.
4. Concealer is your friend!
Instead of freaking out that your wings aren't identical, try cleaning them up with concealer. It begins a bigger mess if you try to use a makeup wipe to remove parts of the wing.
