I really need to stop winging my liquid eyeliner because I just can’t pull it off! My eyes naturally slant upwards, what Chinese people call “phoenix eyes.” I also have hooded eyelids that just hide all of my eyeliner. To add to that, I have eyelashes that stick straight down and refuse to stay curled. I usually do a thin line just for the sake of it, or tightline to make my lashes look fuller, and always pointing slightly downwards.. I have no idea what I was thinking when I drew on this look. I also have no idea why I’m showing you these #fail photos.
I’m wearing Vasanti Liquid Cover Up in V2, which is a good match for my NC25 skin (I will do a review of this later), which is set with Chanel loose powder and finished off with Guerlain Meteorites in Perles D’or. On my eyes, I am wearing Guerlain Ecrin 6 in Place Vendome. Eyeliner was Dollywink Liquid Liner and mascara was Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara.
I look like a mess.
Here is where I went wrong:
- I didn’t curl my eyelashes. The winged liner is to help open up eyes and make lashes look fuller. Well it looks like I have two sets of lashes and a weird fan sticking into my eyes because I didn’t curl my lashes. Make sure your lashes are curled, ALWAYS!
- I didn’t wear false lashes. False lashes would have helped my hooded eyelids open up a little more without looking like I drew on a line.
- My eyes are already slanted upwards. With the winged eyeliner, I just look like I have lopsided eyes.
So there you have it… I hope by posting this up, I will never attempt to do a winger liner look again!
