Not that I ever figured it out, but to even get where I had a modicum of slight confidence in my ability to use it.
A big part of it has to do with my lid shape. Mine are slightly hooded (and they’re getting even more hooded as I get older), so I have to be *really* mindful of 1) the thickness of the line along my lash line and 2) the angle it extends upward and outward. I also have to start thickening the line midway along my lash line.
And if I don’t stick to the game plan and don’t do all of the above, my eyes end up looking smaller and more hooded than usual.
It took me a while to figure this out. Seriously, like years. But winged liner and I are now at a really good place in our relationship, LOL! I love wearing it, especially in colors other than black.
Ooh! I love me some taupe, bronze and gold winged liner!
Makeup-wise, what took you a lot of trial and error to figure out? Was it disguising dark circles? How to do your base? Smoky eyes? Nail art? Subtle shimmer? Inquiring minds want to know.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Good morning! 🙂 I hope you’re having a good one so far. I’m chugging along, but I’ve got a sick toddler at home. 🙁 I’m pretty sure it’s a cold, but her colds always turn into bad coughs, which gets a little scary and worrisome sometimes…
She’s on the mend now, but the cough is still lingering, and she isn’t sleeping well because it keeps waking her up.
Tabs has been a doting caregiver though. He checks on her all the time, as if to say, “Can I get you anything? Catnip tea? Tuna melt? Turkey egg omelet?”
