Happy Holidays! We all have beauty shortcomings. One of mine is winged liner. I love seeing it because it can up the ante on elaborate eyeshadows looks as well as subtle ones. One blogger who does an amazing winged liner is Mollybee at Beautsoup. She has a post about how she achieves it so check her out. I hope to get on her level one day, but to do that it’s going to take some practice. So what’s a determined makeup addict to do? Buy some liquid liners.
I hit up my local Walgreens and purchased two liquid liners from Milani Cosmetics, Eye Tech Bold and Eye Tech Perfection Liquid Liner, to replace the dried out liners I never got around to using. I’ve had my eye on both of these but kept passing them up for other products. I’m sure it had something do with a fear of failure because as much as I wanted to get better at winged liner, I was still apprehensive about giving it a shot.
I’ve used the Eye Tech Bold liner but not the Eye Tech Perfection liner because I thought I’d be more comfortable with a larger pen. I thought I would have a bit more room for error because I wanted a bold line anyway. The Eye Tech Bold liner applied smoothly and I’m satisified with how black it is. It was easy to fill in spots that weren’t as dark as I wanted them to be and the larger pen felt good in my had as I swept it across my lid. It also held up to some accidental eye touching because I forgot I was wearing the liner. With a little effort and some dope pictorials from Nicola Kate on Instagram I think I’ll be able to get it. My first effort is below.
My valiant attempt at #wingedliner. I used the @milanicosmetics Eye Tech Bold. It took me 7 or 8 tries to get something worth sharing. Don't ask if they're symmetrical though. 😐 A couple of posts by @nicola_kate were very helpful so a big thank you to her. Are you good at #winged #liner? #makeupchat #makeup #makeupaddict
