How to do Winged Eyeliner

This glamorous, super-elongated eyeliner look is tailor made for today’s face mask wearing days and nights. To get the clean, rich lines this look requires, Maybelline Makeup Artist Erin Parsons advises “sketching” on eyeliner first with an easy to use pencil, then layering your liquid liner over that. This creates extra-rich, high-impact eye color that looks incredible and stands up to all kinds of elements. Here's how she did it...

Winged Eyeliner Tutorial

See how Erin Parsons creates this super-elongated winged eyeliner look with Maybelline products.

  1. WINGED EYELINER TUTORIAL STEP 1: PRIME LIDS WITH CONCEALER

    Prep eye lids with a bit of concealer, which helps eyeshadow blend and keeps colors rich and true.

  2. WINGED EYELINER TUTORIAL STEP 2: DRAW THE WING

    Apply black eyeliner with an eyeliner pencil, starting at the outer corners of eyes first, winging the pencil out to make a glamorous, Sophia Loren-esque line. Then, line right along the lash line into the inner corners of eyes.

  3. WINGED EYELINER TUTORIAL STEP 3: LAYER ON LIQUID LINER

    Layer liquid liner on top of your eyeliner pencil line, making sure to sketch deep into the inner corners of eyes.

  4. WINGED EYELINER TUTORIAL STEP 4: CREATE DEPTH & DIMENSION

    Create depth and dimension to the eye with eyeshadow. If you have the Nudes of New York Eyeshadow Palette, buff the shade 'Protector' right into the crease, followed by 'Explorer' to further intensify the effect. For extra drama, add a touch of 'Voyager' to the outer corners of the crease. Whisk a touch of pale, neutral 'Soloist' right under your brows.

  5. WINGED EYELINER TUTORIAL STEP 5: LOCK-IN COLOR

    Layer a long wear pink eyeshadow over the entire crease to lock-in color so that it's vibrant and smudge-proof.

  6. WINGED EYELINER TUTORIAL STEP 6: DEFINE THE LOWER LASH LINE

    Now for the lower lash line! Apply brown eyeliner along lower lashes extending color out past the outer corners of eyes, so it’s parallel (but not meeting) your black eyeliner wing.

  7. WINGED EYELINER TUTORIAL STEP 7: USE WHITE LINER TO OPEN EYES

    Open up eyes by applying white eyeliner along the lower waterline then winging it out, sketching it between the upper and lower eyeliner wings you already have.
