There are several reasons why the winged eye is so popular. Not only is the look universally flattering -- no matter what your eye shape may be -- but it also channels an undeniable retro-glam appeal. With just a great eyeliner and mascara, you can create a sultry winged eye with a few simple, easy steps.

Things You Need

To achieve this look, you’ll need a mirror, L’Oreal Paris Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner, L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Mascara and an index card.

Start With Eyeliner

Some may say eyeliner is the trickiest part, but with L’Oreal Paris Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner, it’s easy to create a beautiful line. Here’s a tip: Rest a hand mirror on the table and look downwards as you drag eyeliner along your lash line. This technique gives you steadier hands and makes it easier to see where you’re applying. Start at the inner corner of your eye, and continue sweeping the liner past the outer corner, making sure to follow your eye’s upward curve.

Enhance The Winged Effect

To create a more exaggerated winged effect, start at the outer corner of the line and trace it back toward your eye with the liner. Use short, careful strokes, ensuring you are thickening the winged part of the eye at the corner. The line should start thin from the inner corners of your eye, then flick outwards.

Apply The Mascara

Apply The Mascara

Place the asymmetrical brush of the Voluminous Butterfly Mascara at the base of your lashes and gently sweep to the tip. The wing tip brush’s flexible arches catch every lash and lift them to the outer edge of your eye, creating that enviable winged effect and a fluttery set of lashes. Depending on how thick you want them to be, apply one or two more coats of mascara.

Ready To Go!

As an optional step, use careful strokes to brush a light coat of mascara on your lower lashes. Place an index card beneath them, so you don’t get any formula on your under-eye skin. As soon as your lower lashes are dry, you’re ready to hit the town with a perfectly glamorous winged eye.
