To continue on my newly-developed love for a double-winged liner, which I shortly mentioned in my previous blog post, I thought I might as well show you a makeup look with it.
There are several aspects I really enjoy about the double-winged liner…meaning by the way, I wing it 😉 both on the moving lid and the lower lash line (there are, of course other ways to rock a double wing).
First of all, it ain’t boring! You have to agree that although the classic winged liner never goes out of style, every now and then, one needs variety. And if it all comes down to just extending that lower lash line a notch, well, why not say I!?
Secondly, I am jealous…I am jealous of women with beautiful, big, almond-shaped eyeballs…yes, you! I AM JELLY, deal with it 😛 My eyes are not of spectacular size or shape, so any little trick to augment them is of interest. The double-winged liner does make my eyes appear bigger and more extended, hence I vote FOR 😉 Believe me, photos don’t do it enough justice, but this makeup look really suits round-shaped eyes.
And the thing is, that you can tweak this look to be as dramatic, as you wish for it to be. I kept the moving lid pretty neutral, and I put the accent on the lower lash line…including the extra wing. You can easily do both wings dark for extra wow and drama…make them longer or shorter….one long, one short. The sky is your limit, as they say!
