  • Hold the handle of the spoon at the outer corner of the eye.
  • Draw a straight line with your eyeliner following the line of the handle.
  • Now place the rounded portion of the spoon and cup of your eyelids.
  • Use the rounded edge to create the curvy tip of the wing.
  • Fill the gap between two lines with eyeliner and extend the liner over your upper lash line as you normally do.

Your solution for skillfully applying winged eyeliner is probably sitting in your purse. Fish out a business card that you no longer have to use and make your personal winged eyeliner stencil.

  • Take a pair of scissors and cut out the pattern you drew.
  • Use the cutout as a stencil for your wings
