Dramatic Wing

Today's look is perfect for any of you that like to vamp up your look! A Dramatic Wing is a sexy yet easy way to maximize drama on the face. Angela used two products for this look on Marianne, L'Oreal Liner (in a pot) and a small paint brush - a total of only $ 12.00. 

Get ready for some serious VAMP as we walk you through 4 easy steps of the Dramatic Wing!

Begin with your face prepped as usual. If you are going to wear eye-shadow, you should also apply that during this step. Marianne is only wearing foundation and mascara: 
Next, get your favorite cream eyeliner. We love cream eyeliner because it's extremely versatile (we also like liquid liner, but cream gives a softer look). We have tried everything from MAC's Fluidline to the dollar store brands and this is our very favorite: L'Oreal Lacquer Liner in Blackest Black.

To save money, we use a paint brush found at JoAnn. They are cheap, durable and come in all different shapes and sizes. Simply dip your brush in the cream liner, beginning with a moderate amount of product on the brush and draw!  Remember, you can always add more
Start in the inner corner of the eye and drag the brush outward along the lash line. The more pressure you apply with the brush, the thicker the line will be. Get a solid base, then go over it a few times. 
And now, for the wing!
Draw a thin line extending from the end of your lash line toward your temple.  Angle the line toward the end of your eyebrow.  To complete the shape of the wing, draw another line from the tip of the wing in to connect with the outter corner of your eye.
Fill in the open space with more liner.  You can see that we brought the line slightly underneath Marianne's eye, this makes the wing look more natural. 

Once you have your basic wing shape, you can build on it to make it thicker, darker and more dramatic!
We thickened and darkened Marianne's look for fun!

We brought the eyeliner under her bottom lashes, making her eyes pop even more. Have fun with this!

To complete the look, add a little blush and highlighter to the cheeks and cheekbones. We used Buxom Blush in Shangri-La-La and Benefit Watt's Up! highlighter.

Simple and Dramatic!
