Two little lines.
At its core, that’s what winged liner is — just two little lines — but anyone who’s ever scored two fierce flicks knows that winged liner is so much more than double dashes angling from outer corners.
To non-makeup people, winged liner may seem trivial, but we know the truth… It’s totally transformative!
On any given day, all it takes is a small adjustment in the flick of a wrist, or a choice to use a different color or finish, and I can be whatever I want. 🦅🕊️🦋👼
On most days, you’ll find me wearing some variation of kitten flicks, because there’s just something about those snazzy snaps that says, “MEOW, I’m not a regular mom. I’m a cool mom.” 😂
On other days, though, like when I need an emotional high-kick capable of shattering a ceiling, I’ll frame my lash lines in flicks so glittery and gleaming that you can see them waaaaaaay past the cheap seats in the back.
BAM! — watch out, world, because I’m coming for you in my bad-@ss diva wings!
And, of course, there’s always what I call my “comfort wings,” which are basically my makeup equivalent of black stretchy pants — a thin black line with a slightly upturned, softened, diffused edge. It’s my go-to when I wanna look cute but I’m feeling lazy.
There are infinite ways to wear winged liner — sharp, crisp and classic; or diffused, hazy and blurry. You can go bright and bold one day, or basic black the next. Big bat wings or dainty, delicate flicks. You’ve got thin lines, thick lines, single wings, double wings… There’s no shortage of styles and ways to wear those wings.
For a few hours, your wings can transform you into a powerful pin-up or a visionary vixen. Or a cool mom, like yours truly, ha ha. 😂
And the next day (or, perhaps even later the same day), after you wipe your wings off, you can start all over again with something different. (If only everything in life were that easy.)
Where will your wings take you next?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
