A Step-by-Step Guide to Winged Liquid Liner - QC Makeup Academy

Hey Guys!

Today’s blog post is going to be a simple and easy approach to a winged liquid liner! This is the method I prefer to use but choose the right technique and product for you. To follow along with me, use a felt tip liner. You are more than welcome to use a gel liner or a dip brush liner product instead!

Liquid liner should be one of the last steps on the lid area before mascara and lashes. The reason for this is you want your liner to stay nice and black. Applying shadow after you do your liquid liner will dull out your liner with product fall out.

Step 1:

Determine your line thickness. This step you want to complete the line across the lid. Ensuring the lashes are saturated and you have your line straight and even across the lid. This step does not have to be perfect as we are just gauging our look. Take a look here at what step one should look like…
