Why Double Winged Liner Is the Secret to a Wider, Brighter Gaze

To draw on double winged eyeliner, celebrity makeup artist Miriam Nichterlein, who recently gave Suki Waterhouse a rock ‘n’ roll-tinged take on trend in the singer’s new “Moves” music video, recommends tracing the shape to start. “Trace in the liner with a softer pencil first, until you are happy with the shape, before going in with a waterproof pen over the top,” she instructs, recommending Bobbi Brown’s tried-and-true gel liner. Parsons agrees: “Going straight in with liquid liner makes it feel more permanent and possibly stressful!” To achieve the right shape on each side, Parsons suggests etching the flick of the wing first. “Once the outer wing is perfected, upward and outward, connect to the inner corner of the eye and top it off with a liquid liner,” she says, adding that the lower wing or line should go on after. To optimize symmetry and impact of the shapes, Nichterlein recommends “erasing any mistakes and sharpening up lines” with pointed Q-tips and waterproof eye makeup remover or micellar water. “It’s totally ok to play and make mistakes with liner,” says Nichterlein. “Even the pros have had to spend time perfecting this look and technique when doing it on themselves!”

To further open the eyes, you can brush on a stroke of white pencil or, alternatively, as British makeup artist Val Garland likes to do on both herself and her clients, add a dash of bright highlighter in the negative space. “It’s a softer version of opening up the eyes and making them look bigger,” she says, adding that it was a strategy also favored by Sophia Loren. While Garland gave Gemma Chan traditional onyx flicks on the November/December cover of Vogue Singapore, she also enjoys adding a dose of color for a two-toned take fitting for the festive season. “It’s modern and a little softer as well,” says Garland of accenting double winged eyeliner with rich gold, teal blue, beetle green, or deep plum. “Don’t be scared,” she says. “Be bold and think beyond the black!”
