There is nothing more frustrating than applying eyeliner. You can guarantee that one eye will be always be wonky and that you will spend 5 minutes of your morning trying to even them up, only to make it worse.
What if we told you that a humble household spoon could give you the perfect wing – no mess, no reapplications and no wasted product. Interested? Read on for our 5 step eyeliner hack that will literally change your life.
Select a medium sized steel spoon and check for its length against your eye area. It must be long enough to reach your hairline when pointing from the corner of your outer eye. Avoid plastic or ridged styles, as they will not provide a smooth line.
Place the handle of the spoon against the corner of your eye. To find the right position, ensure that the handle is following the natural angle of your bottom lid. This will help you to determine the most flattering angled wing for your eyeliner.
Take your favorite liquid eyeliner and draw a line from the corner of your top lid along the length of the spoon. You can control how subtle or how dramatic the look is by only dragging the eyeliner as far as you are comfortable. We suggest stopping before the end of your outer brow.
Turn the spoon around and hold the curved rim against your upper lash line until the line of the spoon matches up with the end of your winged eyeliner. Draw a line to match them up and carry it across your top lid to wherever you are comfortable.
Fill it in. There should be some bare skin between both of the lines, so take some time and carefully fill it in with liner and repeat the process on your other eye.
And voila, perfect eyeliner! It may take a few attempts to perfect the process but have a play around and see what works for you. Let us know how you went in the comments below.
