Double eyeliner styles and how to create them:
• Classic double winged eyeliner step by step
One of the simplest ways to achieve the double eyeliner look is by opting for the straightforward, classic double eyeliner look. Here’s how you can achieve it –
Step 1 – Prep your eyes by applying a primer or a light layer of foundation or concealer over your lids and around your eyes. Make sure that you use a foundation or concealer shade that matches your skin tone and undertone. You can now find your foundation match on the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool and your perfect concealer shade on the Maybelline Fit Me Finder tool in just a few clicks.
Step 2 – Use a liquid eyeliner to line your upper lash. To create a wing, drag the line towards your temples at the out corners. The best way to create a sharp tip is by using an angled eyeliner brush. You can also do so with an eyeliner stencil.
Step 3 – Using the same eyeliner or a different shade for a unique touch, start at the outer corner of the lower lash and create a line parallel to the first one. Leave some space between them. This helps to make your eyes appear more awake. Pull the second wing slightly outer of the previous one to create an ultra-lifted look. Make it sharp.
Step 4 – To give your double eyeliner look an additional definition and the perfect finish, trace the inner corners of your eyes in a triangular shape.
• Reverse cat eyeliner step by step
The reverse cat eyeliner starts below the lower lash line. It keeps the wing element, but it connects from underneath the eye, unlike the traditional winged eyeliner look. Here’s how to create it –
Step 1 – Prep your eyes as usual. Then, starting from the centre of your eye, use an eyeliner pencil and pull a line that extends towards your outer corners.
Step 2 – Use the flat brush on the end to blend the line into a smokey wing.
Step 3 – Shape the wing and join it to your upper eyelid.
Step 4 – Apply some more eyeliner strokes to thicken up and define the wing further.
• Layered double winged eyeliner step by step
If you wish to create a show-stopping eye makeup look, the layered eyeliner is for you. Using multiple eyeliners and some creativity is all you need to create this eye-catchy look. Here’s how you can excel in it –
Step 1 – Once done prepping, draw a line starting at the inner corner of your eye. Thicken the line as you work your way towards the outer corner of your eye. Once you reach there, pull the line up at an angle, going just past the end of your eyebrow.
Step 2 – Once you have completed your wing, create an outline. Start below your inner corner, from the centre of your waterline and draw a thin line that extends towards your nose.
Step 3 – Outline your upper lid until the eyeliner meets the wing.
Step 4 – Use a coloured eyeliner shade of your choice and fill in the space on your upper lid. You can choose shades depending on your mood or outfit.
