Hi guys! I posted a picture of this warm & dramatic makeup look on Instagram on Saturday as it was what I wore out that evening. Since the photo seemed to be well received I thought I would share more details on that look with you today! Last Saturday I was going out to celebrate a birthday so I thought I would take a stab at the ever dreaded winged eye liner which I have about a 50% success rate with. After a bit of tweaking and evening, I managed to pull off wings that were relatively similar. When I do winged liner, my preference is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner as that style of applicator seems to work best for me.
Okay, let’s take a closer look at this warm & dramatic makeup look!

What I love about this look is how the combination of warm colours remind me of a flame. I wear this combination quite regularly, although not typically with winged liner. My success rate is too iffy for every day wear. There just isn’t time for that in the morning! When I do a wing though, I always use the scotch tape method since I’m not super comfortable with doing them. I do my eye makeup first (normally I do it after my face makeup) and I have scotch tape as a guide. I always stick the tape to my hand a few times to remove some of the sticky. Once I’m done with my eye shadow and have made the wing, I remove the tape and continue on with my primer, foundation and so on. I find this method helps both wings to have a similar angle.

I like the strong winged liner on you! 🙂 Looks great with the red lips. This is like a modern pin-up look.
Thank you! I’ve been really enjoying wearing winged liner lately, even if it doesn’t always cooperate! Haha
