How To: The Perfect Winged Out Eye Look.

Looking to master the perfect winged out eye look for New Years Eve or maybe any day you want to just look stylish? It’s not a trend – it’s the iconic lash shape, according to Billy B. L’Oréal Paris Consulting Makeup Artist. Billy B. shared with me his tips to create this look.

How To: Winged Out Eye Look

Every beauty icon, past or present, has worn a flared-out look. Think Marilyn Monroe; think Brigitte Bardot. You’re really creating a more extended, bigger, sexier, elongated eye. To achieve this look, it takes only two products and three steps:

1. Apply L’Oréal Paris The Super Slim Liner by Infallible right along the base of the lashes, from the inner corner of the eye to the outer corner. With the ultra-defined felt tip, you can get the rich black liner all into the lash bed, maximizing the look of the lashes.

2. At the outer corner, while the liner is still damp, take your finger and gently but quickly extend the liner up and out with your finger to achieve the perfect angle and extension.

3. Finish with one coat of Voluminous Butterfly Mascara in Blackest Black.
