Mistake || 1: Not Taking This Process Seriously!
Your decision to apply winged liner instantly means you are serious, so try not to ‘wing it’, yes it takes some effort and focus. We are not telling you it’s rocket science, but if you have a big event and would like to add some drama to your eyes, it could be worth taking your time without any rush..
Mistake || 2: You Only Line Your Lower Lash Line
No woman likes to drag her eyes down, actually we are number one gravity haters, so why use liner on your lower lashes only, really it’s surprising to see women with heavy dark lower lash lines, doing so while ignoring the upper lid completely gives you the goth look which is so far from feminine, flattering and sexy.. Still itching for some lower lid attention? We recommend using a lighter color there than you’re using on the top. This will still give you definition, but feels softer and more flattering.
Mistake || 3: Wearing Black Liner In Your Waterline
Let’s appreciate the winged liner her.. Wearing black liner in your waterline is actually causing your eyes to look smaller. Who wants that? Instead, using a softer color, like bronze, gray, or bronze, and taupe. will still gives you a sultry look without closing up your eyes and making them look smaller.. We love Gigi Hadid’s take on the pale gold lower liner..
Mistake || 4: Ditching The Primer
The beauty of a winged liner is its long lasting effect.. But that doesn’t mean that some environmental modes works against you liner endurability.. Humidity, rain, wind, sweat, dust and the list goes on. The only way to ensure that your eyeliner doesn’t run down your face is to use an eye makeup primer BEFORE applying your eyeliner. Nothing beats long-lasting eyeliner!
Mistake || 5: Failing To Choose The Best Liner Brush
It depends on the person.. Some people do better with a brush liner, others like a felt-tipped applicator.. Everyone’s hand is slightly different and experimenting with a few different kinds of applicators to figure out which you’re most comfortable with will give you the perfect cat eye. CIIN recommends felt tips as they proved to be the best for beginners, since they offer the most control.
Mistake || 6: Uneven Wings..
No one is perfect! But we’re not going to sugar-coat it for you.. Uneven winged liner is a true disaster. Try to perfect the symmetrical look..
Mistake || 7: Pulling Or Tugging Your Eye When You Draw On Eyeliner
That’s like drawing the perfect canvas and then sending it to the garbage bin.. When you pull and then release your eye, it bounces back, and your eyeliner does, too. This can create bumpiness, texture, and that dreaded check-mark shape hanging off the eye..Try to use your fingers to anchor your skin instead.
Mistake || 8: Closing Your Eye During
Keep your eyes open. When the eye is closed, you can’t see where the crease at the corner of the eye falls. Another mistake that leads to un-even-ness..
Mistake || 9: Choosing The Wrong Eyeliner Formula
If you were a fan of blending almost every makeup item you choose to add on, then you need to be picky about the formula of your chosen eyeliner.. Liquid or gel liners look super-dramatic, but they set so quickly that you have basically zero time for blending. For blending purposes, you’re better off using a pencil especially if you’re a novice or have shaky hands.
Mistake || 10: Curling Your Eyelashes After You Apply Eyeliner
You might go: duh! But some women need to be reminded of doing the curling prior to winging..
