For most, makeup has been at the bottom of the priority list over the past year. With most of us spending more time inside than before, our makeup looks were kept simple with just a quick touch of mascara and filled-in eyebrows. The natural look took over and we stepped away from creating any dramatic eye looks for a while.
If you feel like your skills are a little rusty and need a serious boost of inspiration to prepare for summer socialising, we’re here to help. It’s not about reinventing the wheel and trying to learn the most elaborate eye makeup looks imaginable, we’re taking it back to basics.
In this post we’ll remind you how to create the classic winged look, how to master it, then kick it up a notch to take your makeup skills further, making you feel more confident without getting too complicated.

The Classic Winged Look
We can all agree that winged eyeliner is a modern classic and the go-to eye makeup look for so many, however, it may be time for an liner refresher. We go into full detail in this blog post, but if you’re just looking for a refresher, keep reading. To draw the perfect wing, it’s all about knowing your eye shape (we just wrote a full blog post on this!) and whether you prefer a dramatic liquid wing or a more subtle lining to the eyes.
To create the classic winged liner look, draw a vertical line on the outer edge of your eye and create a triangle shape. Fill in the triangle with your favourite liquid eyeliner, then follow the shape of your eye, lining as close to the lash line as possible, filling as needed.
Tip: To master the classic winged eyeliner look it’s all about finding the product that you find most comfortable. Our Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner has a precision point – a key factor in mastering the look. A pen-shaped eyeliner also means it is easier to hold and angle.
