I have a love/hate relationship with winged liner: love the look, hate the application. I used to end up looking more flustered than feline, but then I discovered angled eyeliner brushes used with a cake eyeliner. These will change your life (well, maybe not. But your liner at least). Another brilliant tip - use concealer to create shape and clean the line. With hints like these you’ll be fluttering your kitten flicks in no time…
Do you have any winged liner application tips?

TRY THE TREND: Lashes & Liner
Whether you’re heading into Autumn or Spring, bring the focus of your makeup to your lashes & liner this season. Curl lashes using a Shu Uemera eyelash curler then use Ere Perez Natural Almond Oil Mascara (this mascara is AMAZING. Full review coming soon!). Use a liquid eyeliner for clean, bold definition - try Jane Iredale Liquid Eyeliner. To create a winged effect, gently drag the liner across the lashline from the inner to the outer corner of the eye, staying as close to the lashline as possible (and don’t worry if it gets into the lashes itself, it will make the roots appear thicker). Continue the line once you reach the outer corner to create the ‘wing’. To clean up the line, use a Q-Tip that is dipped in make-up remover or that has a little concealer on it and run it underneath the wing to ensure you have a clean, defined edge. Then go out and watch the boys line up… for some line dancing… on a cruise liner…
Yeah, I’m done now.
