Step 1 – Draw half a line on your upper lash line

Using the edge on a dual-end felt eyeliner, draw a line on your upper lash line. Start from the middle and take it all the way to the end, so you’re only drawing half a line.

Step 2 – Draw a winged flick at the end of the line

Switch to the precision side of the felt eyeliner to create a winged flick. To do this, hold the skin taut and draw a line angled towards the brows to create the bottom of the wing.

Step 3 – Fill in the wing

Fill in the outline of the wing you have created by joining the bottom of the wing with the line along the lash line.

Top tip: Create the winged effect by applying the eyeliner in small strokes to avoid mistakes.

Step 4 – Draw a line at the bottom
