Winged eyeliner is so lit but it’s hard to make it on point whether you are an expert or a beginner. On the other hand, winged eyeshadow still manages to bring the same angular effect, but is much easier to achieve. That’s why this style can definitely become a trend whenever you put it on. Below, we give you the most detailed step-by-step tutorial of winged eyeshadow. Prepare your makeup products and keep scrolling!
Step 1: Prime your lids
Priming your lids or any part of your face is a must if you want the makeup layer to last throughout the day. Just with a touch-up of primer, the makeup will stay in its place all day long. Moreover, the primer also makes the surface smooth that makes the next step much easier to be done.
Step 2: Apply your winged eyeshadow
The big moment has come. The step is all the same regardless of the color you choose. Start from the outer corner of your eye, use the eyeshadow brush to extend the shade toward the crease. Then, fix the line to get a defined look. The sharper the line gets, the cooler the finished makeup becomes.
Our tip is using a dense tapered brush for an easy-win. What if you blended your eye shadow too much? Don’t be panic, dip the brush into some micellar water, and clean that mess. There is always a solution!

Although this step is optional, you’ll definitely need to try it. You can combine contrast hues like black eyeliner, metallic, or gold to enhance your eye shape.
Step 4: Accentuate lashes for Winged Eyeshadow
Coat your lashes with some mascara and you’re nearly done!
Step 5: Conceal the under section of your eyes
Dark circles may ruin the whole eye makeup that you put too much effort into it. You don’t want that, right?
