First of all, this is a very easy technique. I feel it's even easier to do than a basic smoky eye. Second, sowwwie I didn't post this during the weekend, like I said. I was just so busy with....well, nothing haha... you know what I mean ;)
Prepping: I applied TFSI to prime lids, then NYX Milk as a base so the loose pigment will cling to the lids better.
- Apply shimmery eyeshadow on lower half of lids & inner tear duct corners.
- Draw black eyeshadow on outer half of lower lash line. This will be a guideline when you draw the wing on upper lash line.
- Now draw a line on upper lid straight towards eyebrow tail.
- Now make a curved line inwards. (I usually do step 4 & 5 in one quick motion.) It's up to you if you want to leave it curved or straight. I like it a little curved but here I must have absentmindedly straightened it while building the color.
- Bring line into your crease while looking straight, so the brush gets wedged in the crease line. I want the line to disappear into the crease. If you don't have hooded lids, like mine, this step would be a cakewalk.
- That is how it should look like. See that little bald spot? We need to fill that in.
- Fill in & darken outer V with the angled brush.
- Use a pencil brush to softly blend the black inwards.
- Blend crease as well. Lighter strokes as you blend towards the inner corner.
- Run a Q-tip outside the edges to clean any smudges.
- Do the same on the sides.
- With angled brush, sharpen the edges if needed.
- Tightline upper lash line with black kohl pencil.
- Line waterline as well.
- Finish off with black mascara. I wanted my lashes mimic the winged eyeshadow, so I applied mascara sideways.
