Remember those perky dance sequences from Asha Parekh where she sizzled on silver screen! Right from black & white to coloured cinemas she ruled the Bollywood with her charm & beauty. And then not to forget her signature eyemakeup of long stretched wing liner which she made so very famous & become a trend setter. Today I see Kangna Ranaut sporting the look mostly but then with lots of customizations.
This is a kind of look which never fails to loose its charm & a pefect gateway for any ocassion.Right from red carpets to movie awards we have seen out celebrities spreading the magic with this winged liner look. Today I will be doing a tutorial for a Retro Winged Liner which is basically extended in a sleek tail form. I so wanted to post a FOTD too but then I will be doing a separate post compiling the different winged liner looks along with FOTD’s.
|1. Clean & Prime your eyes.|
|2. You can go for this kind of look with coloured eyeshadows also but I am doing it with a neutral accent. For lids I have taken a creamy nude base. You can use any creamy base suiting your skintone.|
|3. Take a slightly darker earth toned shade to define the crease & the outer corner of eye. I have MAC Romp eyeshadow for the purpose.|
|4. I am more comfortable with pencil liners than liquid ones, hence I have started the look with black pencil liner from Bourjois (effet smoky) & then used a liquid liner to further intensify. Trace the upper lash line using a pencil liner. Keep the line as close as possible to the lashes to give dense feel & volume to lashes & later thicken it a bit tracing along the shape of your eye.|
|5. Tightline the upper waterline & extend a slight wing diagonally from the outer corner of eye. Join the wing to the lower outer corner of eye & fill in the gaps if any|
|6. Fill in the waterline with same black liner & also line the lower lash line. Need not be perfect as it will be smudged further|
|7. Take eyeshadow used for defining the crease & with the help of a pencil or smudger brush smudge the eyeshadow on lower lash line along with the black liner.|
|8. With the help of a liquid liner trace the upper lashline & the wing on the outer corner to further intensify the look.|
|9. Curl your eyelashes & apply 2-3 coats of good volumizing mascara to finish the look.|
Hope the tutorial was helpful. Will be coming up with more wined liners soon. You can pair this look with bold or subdues lips & a nice warm pink blush. Its a universally flattering look.
