Are you as obsessed with Pinterest as we are? Then you have probably seen all the gorgeous photographs pinned of winged out eyes and eyeliner. It’s a classic look has withstood the test of time and is perfect for fall. We rounded up our favorites along with a few tips and tricks for creating these looks yourself!
This eye look is dramatic and stunning in just about any color. Prep your eyes first using a primer if you like and then sweep a neutral beige eye shadow from lash line to brow bone with your Eye Shading Brush. Next, grab your Angled Eyeliner Brush dipped in water if you’re using a powder shadow, or your Smudge Eye Liner Brush if you’re using cream shadow. Outline the shape of your eyelid, but when you get to the outer corner, gently pull your brush up and out towards your temple, then pick up the brush before going down.
To copy this pretty look, use a cream eyeliner with your Angled Eye Liner Brush or try one of those fancy new eye liner pens. Pull your eyeliner gently from the inner corner of your eye (you can start slightly lower than the inner corner if you want an edgier look), all the way to the outer corner. Once you get to the outer corner of your eye, without picking up your brush or pen, give it a gentle flick to create a wing. Make sure you’re gradually releasing pressure as you flick to achieve that tiny tail. Move onto your bottom lash, start the liner a quarter of the way in from the outer corner of your eye. Gently pull the liner out from that point towards the wing you already created. All you have to do is line up the bottom with the top. Use your Smudge Eye Liner Brush to then gently smudge the bottom and pile on mascara.
Do you love the look of smokey eyes but are scared of all that dark color? Try this less than smokey eye look! Grab your eye shadow palette of greys, silvers, and black and only use the lightest of colors with your 6 Piece Eye Brush Set. Use the Large Eye Brush to sweep a light silver from lash line to brow bone, sweep a slightly darker silver or grey color in your crease with the Angled Crease Brush, then use your Petite Eye Shading Brush to blend if needed. This look also uses a Highlighting Brush to sweep a very light color along the upper edges. Apply eyeliner using the tips above, smudge with your Smudge Brush, and then pile on mascara.
