The One Trick You Need to Get Perfect Winged Eyeliner
Cosmopolitan.com partnered with Maybelline New York to show you how to get glam with a bold look. Here, a how-to on creating a wicked winged eye, thanks to makeup artist Lauren Cosenza.
1. Perfect your skin, then trace your upper lashline with black gel liner. After you've applied a liquid foundation that matches your skin tone perfectly (model Bojana used Maybelline New York Dream Wonder Fluid-Touch Foundation in "Creamy Natural"), line your upper lashline from the inner corner to the outer corner of your eye with a black gel liner and an angled brush. Bojana used Maybelline New York Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner in "Blackest Black" here.
2. Tack on the tail. Using an old business card as a guide and the same liner you used in step one, tilt the card at an angle in line with the end of your lower lashline, and begin to add more gel liner to create the winged part of your cat-eye.
3. Give your bottom lashline some love. With the same angled brush and gel liner from step two, line your lower lashline with from the inner to outer corner of your-eye.
4. Pump up your mod look with mascara. Wiggle the wand from root to tip to make sure every lash is covered. Bojana used Maybelline New York Pumped Up! Volum' Express Colossal Mascara in "Classic Black" here.
Finally, add a soft pink lip color to your lips (Bojana used Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipcolor in "Pink & Proper"), and then pin, Instagram, and tweet out a selfie because, girl, you look stunning!
