Mac inspired triple winged liner

Hey all! Hope your all well...

I was browsing through the mac website & was really inspired by this picture!

I would love to recreate both these makeup looks on a model with similar eyes because my eyes are not the right shape for this look. I tried it and didn't like it so decided to recreate the triple wings but put my own stamp on it by blending a matt brown into the crease and pairing it up with bright red lips.

The lipstick I used was Illamasqua ignite. I wasn't sure if I should go for a retro red lipstick (revlon really red) or a bright orange (illamasqua blaze). I went with ignite because its red with a orange undertone- so I used both colours!

This look was surprisingly very simple (well if you exclude the triple winged liner). If you can't do the triple liner but still love this look, I think it would still look beautiful with just winged liner and liner underneath the eyes, still have a shot at trying it out.

Sanna's top tips for perfect triple winged liner

  • Use a really good brush! Pointed or angled or whatever you work best with really. 
  • You need a steady hand to achieve perfect liner so practise before hand- a good tip if you don't have a steady hand is to rest your elbow on a desk or book (something like that).
  • Use a cotton bud to clean up your line, this will help you get that beautiful long and pointed shape.
  • Use a kohl liner to trace your line first before going over it with your liquid or gel liner so you can prevent mistakes that are hard to get rid of 
  • Dont rush! Do one liner at a time and make sure you leave enough space in between to apply the white eyeshadow.
  • Do your concealor/foundation around your eye area before hand, otherwise it will be really hard to apply it after when all the lines have been completed.
