How To Do Winged Eyeliner

There are all kinds of winged liners you can create on your eyelid. Here are some of the most popular winged eyeliners at the moment. After this guide, you will have learned how to do winged eyeliner for every kind of event!

Everyday Winged Eyeliner


To achieve your everyday winged liner, you'll need to first pick out the liner you want to use. Do you want to use liquid liners, gel liners, felt tip liners, or pencil liner?  It depends on you! 

To create this look, you should first start near the middle of your eyelid. Slowly draw a straight line like you normally do with your liner. Then, line up the end of your eyebrow to the end of your eye, and draw a line. This creates one side of your wing, then you'll need to create another line from the tip of your first wing and draw it back in until you meet the first line that you drew. Then fill in the wing. There you have it, your everyday winged liner! You can make the wing as big or little as you want it.

Cat Winged Eyeliner


A cat winged eyeliner is making a line starting near the inner corner of your eye. You will want to make a sharp and clean 'V'. You will also want to use a gel liner for this look. It's cleaner than using a pencil liner, and safer to use around the eyes than a liquid liner. Once you have your sharp 'V' in your inner corner, you can line the rest on your eye like normal, finishing it up with a clean and precise wing at the end. You can use your everyday wing for this part. Make sure you add a little bit of liner under your eyes, only on the outer third area.

Glitter Winged Eyeliner


Glitter winged liner is super fun to draw. First, you draw your normal line. I would suggest using a felt tip eyeliner for this look, it's much easier and cleaner to draw with the pen. You can draw your everyday wing if you'd like, or go for something cool and extravagant. Then, wait for your liner to dry, before applying a glitter liner onto of the line you just drew. This will great a sparkly effect, it's a great look to use for parties!

Smokey Winged Eyeliner


The smokey winged liner is exactly what it means. You can use a gel line or pencil liner to create your wing, then use a sponge or brush to blend the line out before it sets. This will create a 'smokey' effect. Make sure to blend the liner into your eyeshadow, this will make it look a lot neater and balanced.

Short and Thick Winged Eyeliner


The short and thick winged eyeliner is basically lining your eyes like normal, but making the line a little thick near the end. You will need to blend the liner out a little too, so the best formula to use for this look is a gel liner or pencil liner (creamy).

All of these winged liners are super fun to create. There are other wing options if you can't find the look you're looking for in this article. These are only a few looks that you can create using your eyeliner. It takes some time to get the hang of drawing identical wings on both eyes, but once you get some practice, it'll be a lot easier.
