I’m an eyeliner noob.
I’ll hold my hands up now and tell you that I am rubbish when it comes to all things eyeliner. Winged liner is usually a no go for me, although I love the look on others, the amount of times that I’ve ended up with eyeliner flicks up to my brows or taking up my entire lid like I am trying to be Cleopatra is just too many times to count.
In fact, I banned myself from doing winged liner.
However, recently, I’ve been trying a new eyeliner that has made even a noob like myself get quite handy with the old winged liner.
No I haven’t magically become able to do an on point flick, I’ve been using the new Ciate London Stamp and Drag liner which has been released in collab with Courtney Act.
So what’s so special about this?
Well as the name may suggest, one side is a stamp and the other side is like a regular liner which is like an almost felt tip pen.
The stamp is what you use for your flick, then you use the liner to line the rest of your line.
It’s so, so easy to use, and means you can create pretty good winged eyeliner in literally about 20 seconds.
I hold down the stamp at the corner of my eye, then connect it to the line that I’ve drawn across my eyelid.
I couldn’t believe it the first time I used it, as it actually worked, and well if little old me, can do it, anyone can. I mean my eyeliner isn’t perfect, but we’re getting there!
I’ve been really enjoying having winged liner recently, it’s always good to mix up your make up look now and then, hopefully the Stamp and Drag liner will mean no more liner accidents.
Also it’s very black, pigmented and lasts all day which is great! If I had to be realllllly picky, I wish the normal liner side had a slightly finer tip but apart from that, I have been using this non stop and I had to blog about it cause I know you guys love a make up product that makes life easy as much as I do!
So that’s it for now, if you’re looking to perfect the old winged liner then this may be the liner for you!
I’d love to know if you’ve tried it or if you have any top tips for creating perfect flicks
