Gradient Smoked Out Winged Liner

Hello readers! Welcome back to my blog and thank you for reading! Today’s post is going to be on a really quick eye look I did the other night, perfect for when you want some definition but don’t want to go too heavy. I created a smoked out winged liner using only eyeshadow which gives it a soft, smokey look while still keeping the definition of a sharp line. I used all neutral, matte tones for this look, but feel free to swap any colours to make this look your own. If you’re interested in seeing how I created this look, please keep reading! (Below I have inserted a short video clip of the eye look if you are interested in seeing the application)

To begin the look, I took about a pinky length of scotch tape and placed it from the outer corner of my eye, towards the tail of my brow to achieve an outline of a perfected crisp eyeliner.

For the initial transition shade, I took Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow in, “Warm Taupe” on a Sigma E40 blending brush, and blended this in my crease from inner to outer corner. Anastasia-Maya-Mia-Palette-shadow.jpg

Following along the outer corner of the eye and over the edge of the tape, I applied Mac’s eyeshadow in, “Embark” using a Sigma E25 blending brush. By adding various neutral tones, this will create a seamless blended look- ultimately leading to the gradient effect. download.jpeg

I then used the shadow ME-512 from the Make Up Forever Artist Palette- Volume 1 (you can use any matte black eyeshadow) and followed this tightly along the outer corner of the eye and along the tape where you would generally apply winged liner. I used the same Sigma E25 brush to apply this as well. s1688712-main-hero-300 (1).jpg

For the inner portion of the lid, I used my favourite nude eyeshadow which is from the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette Palette. Taking this on a Vera Mona flat shader brush, I applied this on the inner portion of the lid up until where we placed Mac “Embark”. This really tied in the entire gradient look. 1464_2.jpg

To add some more definition to the lash line, I took Inglot AMC Gel Liner in #77 and lined this very thin along the lash line to create some more depth. I then applied my Ardell “Wisipie” lashes to finish off the look. I add some lower lash mascara but left the lash line free of shadow as I wanted the winged shadow to be the main focus.


And that completes the look! Thank you for taking the time to read today, I hope you enjoyed this super simple eye look.

Talk to you soon! Xx
