A Winged Eyeliner Tutorial in 6 Easy Steps

Winged eyeliner can be a pain! As a makeup artist, I do it every single day, so I’m trained enough to give you some tips on how to do your eyeliner in few simple steps.

All you need for the perfect line, is a good eyeliner; A felt tip eyeliner pen is quite easy to use, I recommend a waterproof one. It’s good to use an eyelid primer too.

Also, if you want to make sure it doesn’t smudge throughout the day, buy the last long type. When you apply the eyeliner, look down into the mirror, you can stretch the skin slightly and support with your other hand.


Make sure your eyelids are clean. Use a good eyelid primer and apply eye shadow if desired.



Hold the eyeliner pencil against your eye from the end of your brow to the outer corner of your eye, where you want your flick to be and draw a dot where you want it to end, depending on how long you want your flick. You can use a white pencil to mark the line if it helps.



Draw another dot in the center of your top eyelid, right above the lash line. Make sure it’s not too far from the lash line, this will determine the thickness of your line.



Draw a line from the middle dot to the outer corner of your eye, stop there. Leave a little gap between the line and the eyelash line. Draw another line from the middle dot in the inner corner of your eye. Try to make it thinner as you get closer to the inner corner.


Just fill the line in (your hands are shaking?).


Draw another line from the outer corner of your eye to the dot you marked for the flick and create the flick.
Make sure to measure again when you do the other eye, try to make it parallel.

That’s it!

Don’t forget, it doesn’t have to be perfect, just look balanced and on the same level. Your eyes are sisters, not twins 🙂
