HOW TO DO OPEN WINGED EYELINER

IN THREE STEPS
  • For a big night out, nothing summons evening magic better than a big wing of black eyeliner. But—this is the holiday season. A time when you up the glamour stakes and do something a bit more special! That’s why this evening open winged liner look is so fabulous. It’s as easy to do as a traditional eyeliner look, but with an unusual twist that pops.

  • 01 Model applies pink eyeshadow by Maybelline to create a base for her holiday makeup look.

    HOW TO DO OPEN WINGED LINER STEP 1: CREATE AN EYESHADOW BASE

    Create a soft base of color on lids by blending a pale candy pink eyeshadow shade over the entire area. Pull color into the inner corners of eyes and up past the crease.

    Now, draw a clean line of black eyeliner along the top lash line, extending dramatically at the outer corners of eyes. Create a bold, exaggerated shape by defining the inner corners of eyes with liner, too. Finally, line the inner and outer edges of the lower lash line only, leaving a gap in the center.
