Tutorial: Simple Cat-Eye/Winged Eyeliner for Hooded/Almond Eyes!

Hey guys! Today I've got a tutorial for you - this one is on how to do a simple winged eyeliner for those of us who have Asian eyes or hooded eyes. Eye makeup has always been my vice because of my eye shape. It's hooded in the inner corners, but not on the outer corners. This makes knowing where to place my eyeshadows and eyeliners extremely difficult. However, upon seeing this picture of Karlie Kloss...

...I decided to recreate this dramatic look into something wearable for hooded eyes! It's somewhere between a simple winged eyeliner and a bold cat-eye. I used liquid liner for this look as it was what I had on hand, however gel eyeliner with a fine tip brush would probably be the best products for creating this look as it's long lasting and dark. Alternatively, you can use a creamy kohl pencil and then layer a matte black eyeshadow on top for staying power.

Keep reading if you want to know how to recreate this look for yourself!

I've already applied a base and a translucent powder to my face. Use your primer on your lids if you have one!

Start by drawing the 'wings' of the eyeliner. Do this by drawing a small line that follows up from the outside corner of your bottom lash line.

Draw a line from where your crease ends to the line you drew before to create a true wing.

Keep your eyes open and draw along your crease. You can choose to draw this all the way into the inner corner or stop 3/4 of the way in.

Fill in your lid with your liquid liner/gel liner/kohl pencil.

I cleaned up the look and sharpened the edges with a q-tip dipped in make-up remover. Apply a matte black eyeshadow over the top of the eyeliner to make it dark and give staying power.

That's it! I added a highlight into my inner corners, filled in my brows, added blush, mascara and some lipstick to complete the look.

Simple, no? Please give this tutorial a try if you've got hooded lids too! Good luck!
