Create a classic look with glittery winged liner

On a daily basis, you decide which makeup look is right for your day. For everyday looks, you probably have a simple, efficient routine for getting out the door on time. If you have a special occasion coming up or want to hone your skills, adding winged liner is a classic choice because it enhances every eye shape.
Since this look is all about the glittery wing, keep the rest of your makeup classic and understated. There’s no eye shadow in this tutorial because the wing is the thing. You’ll need two different eyeliner products to achieve this look. Basic black gel forms the base, and a layer of steel glitter tops it off for a shimmery finish.

Instructions
1. Plump, hydrated skin makes makeup look better, so apply moisturizer to your face before beginning your makeup routine. Tip: Allow 5–10 minutes for the moisturizer to absorb, so it won’t interfere with your primer and foundation.
2. Make your pores less visible by applying foundation primer to your skin in a pat-and-press motion. Keep the layer thin, so it sets quickly.
3. Even out your skin by applying liquid foundation with a fluffy foundation brush. Stipple the foundation onto your skin in a downward motion. This prevents the little hairs on your face from sticking up.
4. Cover discoloration below the eyes and bring light to the forehead, chin, and midline of the nose by applying liquid concealer with the applicator wand. Press the product into the skin with a damp beauty sponge. Tip: You can also use the residual concealer on the sponge to prime the eye area.
5. Tap a small amount of loose translucent powder into the lid of the jar. Dip the damp beauty sponge into the powder, then press it against the concealed areas on your face to set the concealer.
6. Fill in your brows using brow pomade and an angled brow brush. Diffuse the pigment and fluff up the brow hair with a spoolie.
7. Warm up your face by brushing bronzing powder along the tops of the cheekbones with the cheek brush.
8. Liven up your complexion by swirling peachy-pink blush onto the apples of the cheeks with a cheek brush. Extend the blush in a diagonal line upward toward the top of the ear and continue to blend the product until there are no discernible edges.
9. Use the angled eyeliner brush and black gel liner to line the upper eye and create a small wing. Position the brush at the outer corner of the eye in a slight diagonal, so the outer edge is pointing toward the temple. Next, position the brush above the first line to form the upper portion of the wing. Drag the brush back toward the lash line, then fill in the gap between the two lines to form the wing.
10. Layer liquid glitter eyeliner over the black eye liner. Layering colors will help you achieve a customized effect.
11. Apply one or two coats of black mascara to your lashes.
12. Pick up the false lashes with the tweezers, then put a small amount of lash glue onto the lash band. Let the glue set for 10 seconds, then apply the lashes just above your upper lash line.
13. Finish your makeup by applying matte rose-beige lipstick to your lips.
You’re all done! Stay pretty!
