Smoked Out Winged Liner

This week I filmed a tutorial featuring a winged liner that has been smoked out.

Ordinarily, the smoke would be on top of the liner but I took inspiration from the recent ‘reversed winged liner’ that Kim Kardashian has been seen sporting, which extends out straight from the lower lash line, and I put my own spin on it by extending the smoke all the way out to the tip of the liner as well as lining the top lash line.
This results in a clean crisp finish on top, and a smoky sultry finish to the bottom.

As you can see from the two images above, you can pair this eye makeup with a Red glossy lip and straight hair, or, you can change it up with a nude lip and bouncy curly hair!

Two contrasting finishes with just one eye look.

The tutorial for this makeup will be up on my channel Sunday, 1pm GMT. Click here to the subscribe to my YouTube for free;

MAKEUPGEEK Poison liner and Dior 056 Bar palette

I don’t know why but I’ve been very obsessed with the idea of pairing a deep blood red liner with soft grey eyes lately. If you have naturally grey or icy blue eyes (lucky you) this is an idea for you. Otherwise, just whip out those colored lenses!

And darlings the matching brows are EVERYTHING if you want understated drama.

If you have a perfect deep wine red matte shadow that would be the best. But that’s not an easy shade to find. If you only have metallics like me, and need to mix, here’s what I did. I used a blend of a metallic burgundy red and some matte browns from the Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette. This gives a deep red tone but doesn’t look pearly and patchy under your brows.

As for the eyes, I used a grey satin palette (not flat matte but not overly metallic) from Dior, 056 Bar. Yes, it’s pricey but I have it and I’ve been neglecting it. Feel free to use any gunmetal grey, black and a soft white that you have; it doesn’t need to be expensive.

Gunmetal all over

Black very lightly in the outer V

White down the center for a halo effect

The dark and light shadows are not meant to be super obvious. They just add a little subtle depth to the grey so it’s not one flat color. You don’t want a super strong black and white because that takes the attention away from the red liner.
