If you believe that two is better than one, then this is the makeup trend for you. Double winged eyeliner features — you guessed it — two wings instead of just one. This intricate eye makeup look has been gaining popularity as of late and we have a feeling it will stick around for a while.
Like with most makeup trends, there are several ways to approach it — and makeup artists and influencers have been putting their personal touches on the well-loved style. But if free-handing it sounds intimidating to you don’t worry, because we’re sharing a breakdown on how to get two of the most popular iterations of the look.
Straight Double Wings
Perhaps the simplest way to achieve double winged eyeliner is by opting for this straightforward approach. Keep reading for our steps on how to get the look.
1. Prime Your Eyelids
While liquid eyeliner is easier to apply over bare lids, eyeliner pencils provide more pigmentation when they have something to stick to. So for this look, prime your eyes with an eyeshadow primer or blend a light layer of concealer over your lids and where the eyeliner will be applied.
2. Create Your First Wing
Using an eyeliner pencil, like the L’Oréal Paris Le Liner Signature Easy-Glide Mechanical Eyeliner, Waterproof, to achieve a soft look, line your upper lash line and drag it towards your temples at the outer corners to create your wing.
To create a sharp tip, use an angled eyeliner brush to pull the product outwards at the end of the wings. You can also sharpen your wing with a cotton swab and a bit of makeup remover.
3. Create Your Second Wing
Using the same eyeliner pencil or one in a different shade for a unique touch, start at the outer corner of your lower lash line and create a line parallel to the first wing, leaving a bit of space in between them. The negative space helps to make the eyes appear more awake.
Drag the second wing out just slightly farther than the one above it to create an ultra-lifted look.
Then, use the same technique you used on the first wing to ensure the bottom wing is sharp.
Editor’s tip: To give the eyes additional definition and a more sultry appearance, trace your inner corners in a triangular shape and slightly smudge the edges so the look is diffused.
4. Finish the Look With Volumizing Mascara
Finish off your look by applying a generous coat of a volumizing mascara. We love the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara because you can build it up for intense volume without weighing down your lashes.
