  • There’s something about a simple winged eyeliner look that looks good on everyone. The extra flick of liner has been done since the ’50s and still adds that perfect dose of glamour needed to spruce any eye look up. It's surprisingly easy to create, and you could use any eyeliner formula—from liquids, gels, and creams. LA-based makeup artist Jason Sanchez suggests using an angled brush and gel formula because, “the combination of products give you a lot of control and fluidity.” Sanchez breaks down each step for us, so grab your tools and follow along!

  • STEP 1

Dip your brush in eyeliner and gently drag it along the lash line and past the top outer corner of your eye. You want the brush to follow the upward curve of your eye. For a more dramatic winged look, draw farther out and angle the liner slightly more.

    Eyeliner is not only a way to play with color and make a statement; it's also the perfect instrument to reshape your eye. You don't have to go under the knife for bigger-looking eyes if you know how to wield an eyeliner brush for your eye shape.
