classic 24hrs

We love our cat eyes dearly, but sometimes the mood calls for a look with more flair. Enter: The Jet Wing, a sweeping, statement-making eye look. Here, Sephora PRO Artist Erik Soto shows us how to layer eyeliners in a way that makes beauty take flight. BECKY PEDERSON

STEP ONE
Use Urban Decay Super-Saturated Ultra Intense Waterproof Cream Eyeliner with SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Angled Liner Brush #22 to mark the points to where you want your wings to extend. This look is all about drama, so we plotted our wing points nearly two centimeters out from the corners of our model’s eyes.

STEP TWO
Once points are plotted, fill in the wing with your eye open. Stop the color once you hit your lid—when your eye is closed, the liner will make a hard 90-degree angle. Stopping the color at this point will keep you from looking like you have two black eyes.

STEP THREE
Use SEPHORA COLLECTION Classic Line 24HR Felt Eyeliner to delicately line the rest of your upper lash line for definition. Connect the bottom of the wing to the bottom lash line to clean up the look. Use this liner to clean up any smudged lines on your wings as well. Finish the look with Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara.

PRO TIPS
Don’t stress yourself out trying to get your wings to match exactly. Erik says, “The wings themselves end up being different sizes because each eye folds in a different place. They’ll never be the same.” Focus instead on making the wings look proportional to each eye.
