8 Mistakes That Ruin Your Winged Eyeliner

These are the most common mistakes we make when drawing winged eyeliner and how to how to correct them.

Colored eyeliner on the lower lidSpecialists recommend only applying colored eyeliner to your lower lid when you're going to a themed party because, in most cases, a colored lower eyelid makes your look more severe, which doesn't add to your charm.

Poorly sharpened pencilRemember that the pencil should be sharpened every time before drawing winged eyeliner. A sharp tip will make a straight line on your eyelid a lot more quickly and without too much fuss.

Asymmetrical wingsEvery girl has made the mistake of drawing one wing thicker than the other. Then we try "matching" them to one another, but this only makes more mess. You should try to draw symmetrical wings as often as possible, and you'll soon learn to draw them on your first attempt.

Liquid eyeliner on the lower lidThe texture of liquid eyeliner will make it quickly run under your eyes if you use it on your lower lid. That's why you're advised to remember another golden rule: liquid eyeliner is for the upper lid only, and for the lower lid there's a pencil.

Nondurable eyelinerWe are already aware that liquid eyeliner can run quickly, especially if there's moisture in your eyes. To avoid this, carry some Q-tips with you to correct sloppy makeup, or just choose waterproof eyeliners.

A gap between the wing and the eyelashesThis tiny detail can ruin even the most perfect of winged eyeliner, so always draw the line as close to your eyelashes as possible. This effect is worth your time and effort.

Sloppy wing tipsBeautiful winged eyeliner must have sharp, clean, and slightly upward-tilted tips. Other variations will not look as impeccable and can spoil even professional makeup.

Stretched eyelidsIf you stretch your lids too much when applying eyeliner, your wings will end up being uneven when the skin returns to normal, and they won't look perfect.
