I have a slight obsession with winging my eyeliner. It’s my go-to eye look after much practice. I draw it on with liquid liner (major drama), gel eyeliner (moderate drama), and even eyeshadow applied wet (subtle soft drama), however the mood strikes me!
So WHY do I wear this eye look so much? Here’s a few reasons…
1. It’s playful. I think makeup should be fun, and this look has some wearable flair without involving glitter and neon.
2. It gives an instant eye lift without the surgery. The subtle (or dramatic!) flip up at the corner of the eye gives the illusion of a more lifted eye. No droopy dog eyes here!
3. You can wear it colorful without worrying about bright eyeshadow. I often wear bright blue, purple, or emerald green winged liner because it’s so much easier to apply one stripe of noticeable color than doing an eyelid full of color with shadows!
4. It never goes out of style. Especially worn in black or brown, the winged cat eye is always going to look sophisticated and timeless when done right. This isn’t some fly by night makeup trend – think 1950’s Sophia above! Of course this look does take practice and a steady hand, but I promise, once perfected, it will be one you want to wear often. Here’s a post I did awhile back on just exactly how I draw on a cat eye.
Do you wing it??
