Do you have any tips for how to do eyeliner? I'm almost 20 and I would at least like to achieve a cat eye in my life please help me!

lily’s eyeliner masterclass 101

i think the most common question i get asked is how i do my eyeliner. one day i’ll make a video about it, i promise, but until then….enjoy this guide!

step one: get an eyeliner that resembles a felt tip. trust me. 

 if you’re in the UK, Soap & Glory’s ‘supercat’ liner is foolproof. If you’re in the US or rest of the world, L’Oreal ‘superliner’ is A+ BUT NOT THE FAT VERSION OKAY THE HUGE ONE SUCKS ASS

if you want a high-end i reccommend either Estee Lauder’s ‘little black liner’ or Lancome’s ‘artliner’ okay they’re beautiful in every way but £$£$£

(you gotta trust me okay i have been using/testing eyeliners for over six years)

step two: own an eye or two or three maybe i have no idea i’m not discriminating

step three: look at ur eye shape.

if you have round eyes, you need to really flick your wing high up and it’ll make your eyes look less round, it is hard to wear winged eyeliner with round eyes.

if you have hooded eyes, make your wing straight!

if you have upturned eyes, apply some liner to your bottom lash line on the outer portion and connect it to the rest of your wing

if you have almond eyes you don’t need to worry really you can do whatever you want

step four: do a thin line on your upper-lash line. 

simple as hell. draw a black line by your eyelashes. u can do this, friend.

step five: dot where you want your wing to end. 

a lil dot. don’t press stupidly hard just faintly mark it okay.

step six: draw the diagonal line from the dot to where your upper lash line begins (outer corner!)

nice diagonal line u have there friend

step seven: draw a straight line from the dot and connect it to the first line again. you will then have a triangle/wing.

you got this m8.

((*OPTIONAL STEP*

IF YOU FEEL LIKE U CAN DO ANYTHING, JUST TURN THE PEN ON IT’S SIDE WHERE THE DOT IS AND DRAG IT TO YOUR EYELID. IT MAKES TRIANGLE. YOU HAVE WING.))))

step eight: colour in triangle you have made. 

colouring is good.

step nine: tidy up edges with concealer if needs be.

CONGRATS. YOU HAVE A WING. NOW REPEAT ON OTHER EYE.

okay if that’s too hard, do the tape method. get scotch tape/masking tape/sellotape/washi-tape why not

put the tape diagonally from the bottom of your lower lash line and upwards to create the angle you want your wing to have

you can legit figure it out after that it’s so easy you just draw the wing along the tape line and connect it to your lash line. foolproof. easy.

eyeliner is super hard i get it but once you’ve done it lots of times it’s easy as hell and you wonder why it was ever so difficult!!!!

KEEP TRYING AND ROCK UR WINGS!!!! u an angel now.

also. michelle phan aka the original beauty guru made a good video once about this. watch it here.
