My Secret For Perfectly Winged Eyeliner

Never ask a girl with winged eyeliner why she's late...

Winged eyeliner is a technique that takes lots practice and patience to achieve. My go-to holiest of holy grail eyeliner is Stila's Liquid Eyeliner, which will have it's own post down the road but for now I'll be focusing on a trick I use to ensure my winged eyeliner looks flawless. I'm by no means a professional makeup artist but let's be honest- even the professionals have their off days when creating a winged look. That is where ELF's Studio Makeup Remover Pen comes in.
I love when drug store products work wonders since they come at a much lower price compared to high-end brands. ELF's Studio Makeup Remover Pen is a lifesaver when it comes to cleaning up minor eyeliner mistakes and it's only $3 online at ELF or your local Target. The formula that comes out of the applicator is not oily so it won't leave a mess for your remaining eyeliner. The applicator is sharp enough for you to swipe that wing into perfection. Because I have hooded eyelids, any sign of oil will doom my eyeliner to smudge.

Before discovering this gem, I used a makeup wipe or cleansing oil to clean my eyeliner but at the end, that only made matters worse leading me to start all over and I know us ladies try to avoid that at all cost haha. If you're someone that has an off day every now and then with winged eyeliner, definitely pick up this gem.
