We may not be living smack in the middle of the Mod 1960s, but you sure wouldn’t that from one of the very hottest trends in makeup right now. The winged eyeliner trend is hotter than ever and fashionistas everywhere are racing out to buy the very best (and blackest) liquid liner they can get their hands on so they can practice this dramatic look for themselves. Like we said, the winged liner look is hardly new, since the days of Cleopatra women have known that extending an eyeliner line in a curved wing on the upper lid gives us that sexy cat-like eye and makes the lash line look longer and more dramatic. And since then the look has come and gone, in and out of vogue. Now it’s definitely in.
One of the most popular ways to wear this look is with a dramatic swoosh of liquid liner on the top lid, extending out from the lash line, and then little or no liner at all on the lower lid. And pretty much every cosmetics giant has come out with a brand new bold liquid liner that promises to go on smoothly and stay on all day. Sephora’s Smart Liner is one of the very best, its super cool curved packaging makes it easy to hold and use. And the liner does exactly what it says – it glides on easily and won’t smudge. And if you’re looking for a thin line that keeps that wet, patent leather look, MAC’s Superslick liquid liner may be just what you’re looking for.
