TUTORIAL | Simple Winged Liner + Pop of Colour

TUTORIAL | Simple Winged Liner + Pop of Colour

Hello there! So I don’t think I’ve ever really posted any specific LOTD or Eye makeup tutorial type thing on my blog. Don’t get me wrong, I do have quite a lot of eye/fotd type pictures in iPhoto, but a lot of them get rejected because of one of all of these reasons:

  1. Blurry, unfocused – I like the eye looks to be sharp and crisp!
  2. Wrong lighting which cannot even be corrected by Photoshop
  3. Great photo but I cannot remember the products used or how I did the look (happens all the time)

You might ask, why not snap the pics on weekends? Well, it’s because I rarely wear any makeup on weekends unless I’m filming. Weekends are very chill and yoga-focused for me.

Since I had to attend an event yesterday, I took advantage of the daylight and time I had to snap some pictures of the look I came up with. Very often, I just “wing” my look as I go along, without too much prep on the products I would use or how I would place the colours. Yesterday was no different, except that I wanted to use products that I haven’t used in a while, most of which are brand new, just lying around waiting to be picked.

So, the above is the complete look I created, what started out as a “neutral” look turned out to be quite colourful. Haha. I couldn’t do away with my bright lips.

Alright let’s get into the look.

  • I first applied the NARS Eye Paint in Porto Venere as a base all over my eyelids, taking it up to right under my eyebrows. I believe the Eye Paint has multiple uses, you can use it as a liner, highlighter, to shade and define. I tried using it as an eyeshadow base and it does work quite well. No creasing at all.
  • Next, I took some NARS eyeshadow in Valhalla – a shimmering peach shade, onto my crease, blending it slightly above the crease. Even though it’s quite shimmery in the pan, the shimmer was not over-powering when applied and blended. I blended it out with MAC 217 brush.

  • Because I wanted my eyeliners to be the star of the look, I wanted to keep the inner corner and centre of the eyelids clean but bright. So I chose to use the golden shade from the new NARS Dual-Intensity Blush in Jubilation. I dabbed the colour on with my finger rather than a brush.
  • Forgot to include in my product shot above, I also blended a little of the taupe shade from Burberry Nude Blush Eye Palette onto the outer corner of my crease to add some depth to my eyes.
  • At this point, you want to use a fluffy blending brush and windshield wiper motion to blend the 2 colours together.
  • It’s been a long while since I last used a gel liner, so I decided to pull out my Laura Mercier Gel Liner in Noir and drew quite a dramatic wing with my Hakuhodo eyeliner brush.
  • Another eyeliner that I have been meaning to use was my Chanel eyeliner in Bleu Metallique. I applied it onto the outer half of the lower lash line – note: not waterline, but along the lash line. I was careful to apply it from the outer corners to the centre of the eye, this way there’s less colour on the middle part of the eyes.
  • I then blended out that liner with a pencil brush to soften the liner.
  • Finished off the look with mascara and a pair of Eyllure lashes I got from the UK.

These days, I also try to use as few brushes as possible on all my eye looks because brush washing is not top of my list of activities on weekends.

I think that’s all I used. Hope this has been fun and helpful for you. Thanks for reading!
