EYELINER WEEK: Dual-Winged Liner

We’ve reached the end, my friends! The final post of Eyeliner Week (yes, I own a calendar and I know this took a lot longer than a week, but I already apologized, so there’s no need to harp on me) is upon us. To bring this blessed event to a close, today’s post will demonstrate another option for wearing the many colored liners I recently featured. As the title would suggest, we’ll be tackling dual-winged liner today. Dual-winged liner is two lines super-imposed on top of one another (as opposed to double-winged liner, which is a different animal altogether). It’s surprisingly easy, so let’s jump right in. Make an awkwardly unphotogenic face and let’s do this. Continue reading

EYELINER WEEK: Double-Winged Liner…Two Ways!

Before I apologize for how long I delayed finishing Eyeliner week, allow me to bask in the Siouxsie Sioux fierceness of the above featured image. This post is gonna get a little weird and a lot fabulous, so buckle up.

Now, before I set off on this tutorial, please allow me to apologize for how far off-track I allowed myself to stray with regards to Eyeliner Week.

I fell behind, and I’m sorry if any of you readers felt even a twinge of sadness at seeing how derailed my proposed Eyeliner Week had become. Or even if you felt just mildly inconvenienced. Or if it didn’t affect you at all. Even to those people who don’t read my blog, I’m sorry. This is what Catholic guilt does to me.

Back to the issue at hand: eyeliner. Specifically, double-winged eyeliner. That’s an eyeliner look with two wings, for those not grasping the finer points of self-explanation. And I’m gonna show you two ways to achieve this look, so it’s actually four wings. Quadruple-winged eyeliner, here we come! Continue reading

Desert Island Necessity: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

For those who just read my Perfect Winged Eyeliner tutorial, you are a lucky bunch. You had the opportunity to see the Kat Von D Tattoo Liquid Liner Pen in Trooper in action. It applies very smoothly, dries quickly with minimal bleeding, and leaves a slightly glossy, carbon-black finish.  Continue reading

Perfect Winged Eyeliner

It happens to the best of us. We put effort into our eyeliner, decide to go for a winged look, struggle to get our wings to match, before ultimately saying “fuck it” and surrendering to makeup-remover soaked cotton swabs and wingless eyes. Well, no more. You can achieve perfect (or at least passable) winged eyes every day, with only a little bit of practice and one helpful trick. Continue reading
