Winged Eyeliner for Monolids!

avatar
clarity
Classic winged eyeliner look for monolids! I know for us eyeliners are such a struggle 🤪 I personally view eyeliners as a way to make our eyes more defined. Because monolids fold in, eyeliners can literally vanish on our lids when we open our eyes. So believe the key is to embrace this fact, and work on the parts that will show ❤️ I used NYX - Proof It! Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer
and then the medium brown shade from stila - Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette
as my base. Using an eye primer and then a shadow definitely helps the eyeliner stay put. For monolids, having a lot colors AND a winged liner can be overwhelming for our eyes, so I like a simple brown base, just to add a little depth. In terms of the process: 1. Draw a line of your preferred length from your outer corner. This will be you wing. Usually I follow the same angle as my lower lash line because this can usually ensure that it fits my eye shape. I used RIMMEL - Exaggerate Eye Definer
in Starry Night, which is a black color with silver glitter just to spice it up. It’s a bit soft and breaks easily. But as long as I sharpen it gently it’s fine. Plus it doesn’t smudge. Just don’t touch it for a bit and let it set, otherwise it will disappear. 2. Draw a line from the end of the wing to the midpoint of your upper lash line. 3. Make sure you like the shape. Then fill in the triangle. 4. Draw along your whole upper lash line and then gradually fill up upward, until it connects with the triangle you just made in a smooth line/shape. Usually I need to fill up the part of my lid that’s folded in. 5. Smudge the tip of the line with your fingernail gently to create a sharp end. (6. Optional, up to personal preference, connect the triangle to your lower lash line and smudge a bit. So the liner “hugs” the outer corner of your eyes.) Then I use a puff and laura mercier - Invisible Loose Setting Powder
on my entire eyelids to help stop it smudge or transfer. Important for us monolided people.

Zoom Ready: Easy Work Makeup with Glasses 🤓
Keep your base makeup smooth, easy, natural and glowy. Light/Medium coverage is the best. No heavy contour or highlight. Blend from center out. When wearing glasses, only use leftover foundation products on your brush/sponge on your nose and nose bridge where your glasses sit. And for under eye concealer, also leave space for your glasses and blend outwards. Less products mean less smudging/creasing. Powder and setting spray also help a lot. Emphasize your brows and lips instead of your eyes. Use a light brown matte shadow on your eyelids to minimize puffiness and add definition.

Glitter Gold + Classic Winged Liner for Monolids
I have an obsession with gold recently. NYX - Proof It! Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer stila - Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette NYX - Retractable Eyeliner in Black Glossier. - Pro Tip Brush Point Liquid Eyeliner NYX - Glitter Goals Liquid Eyeliner in Zodiac Queen Tips for Monolids: 1) Using a primer and a nude powder shadow helps prevent smudging. 2) Raise your chins and look down like you despise your makeup mirror when you draw your eyeliner, so you can get as close to lash line as possible. 3) Use a pencil first to dot/stamp the wing shape first. Also use the pencil to fill the lash line. Then use a liquid liner to perfect the eyeliner. 4) After your finish drawing your eyeliner, close your eyes and let the liner dry down before blinking. I know, ridiculous, but this will prevent eyeliner smudging when our lids fold in.

Say goodbye to midday creases
NYX - Proof It! Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer - Waterproof Eye Shadow Primer $7 🔥Key Benefits: ● Long-lasting formula increases eyeshadow wear ● Durable and waterproof ● Transparent finish ● Cruelty-free ● Vegan formula As I mentioned, I eyelids are oily, my shadow always creases after a few hours at work, but with this primer, it looks virtually the same as it did when I applied it. It makes my makeup budgeproof, creaseproof, and increases color payoff. It works for cream, powder, and foiled shadows. I have had this product for about 2 months, the NYX primer reminds me a lot of the Tarte product BUT as much as I loved that, the NYX primer is that much better. It goes on feeling drier than a lot of these other types of primers and it dries fast! It says it's clear on the packaging but I find it to be more of an off white colour (which by the way) doesn't interfere or affect any type of eyeshadow colour that you might use. I tend to use an ivory/vanilla, matte shadow all over my lids and nothing else so I pretty much just keep it simple...I find that the NYX primer makes my lids look clean and matte..,..no creasing whatsoever! I've tested it out for long periods of time, such as 16+ hours and it's flawless... I tend to use any remainder that might be left on my fingertips and put it underneath just below my lash line...it helps my gel liner stay in place...you need very little...just a quick dab... It is long lasting and waterproof -- long days, rainy days, Miami days, beach days -- it lasts! You only have to put a little bit on your eyelid and dab it, then apply your eyeshadow.My usage tip is that a little goes a long way and to set it with some residual translucent powder before going in with shadow - it makes it much easier to blend that way. I use the NYX Ultra Pearl Mania (loose shimmer) eyeshadows and the colors POP! I have also used it to do both of my sisters' makeup and they absolutely love it.

Classic Brown Eyeshadow Look for Monolids
Classic Brown Eyeshadow Look for Monolids
A good old classic earth tone smokey eye for monolided people! So for monolids, I think it looks better when we layer the color not from inner corners of our eyes out, but from lash lines up. 1. After prepping your lids either with a primer, or concealer, or whatever base color of your choice (prepping helps stop color transferring), blend a medium brown color up until visible when you open your eyes. Soften the edge. For me, it’s basically the place where I can feel a gap between my eyeball and brow bone. 2. Apply a dark brown color along your lash line and up. Blend it into the medium brown until you reach like an “ombré” effect. This deepens our eyes and give them definition. 3. Use a fluffier brunch and swipe a highlight color, such as gold, from mid lid out. (4. Optional, totally up to personal preference, you can use the brown color in step 2 along your lower lash to create consistency.) stila - Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette I believe this palette has discontinued? For me it works well and I like that the colors are not too intense but buildable. Easier to handle haha. But honestly any brown/earth tone shadows that you like and suits your skin tone will do.

swap your freckle pen for an eyebrow pencil!
#cheriepartner 🌊 i lost my freckle pen somewhere during moving and wasnt in the mood to buy a whole new one, so i improvised with a dark brown eyebrow pencil. I used the MAYBELLINE - Expert Wear Twin Brow & Eye Wood Pencil Light Brown which is super cheap (think $5 for two!) My method of freckle-ing lasted all day AND a four mile run soooo 🌊 the only thing you need to do differently is spray a lil setting spray like URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray Duo onto the tip to dampen the pencil. then, dot away! i finished my look with Milk MAKEUP - Blur + Set Matte Loose Setting Powder to set the freckles and another dash of setting spray 🌊 details 1) put on your base - primer and foundation 2) take pencil and sharpen a bit, then spray tip with setting spray. can also spray hand with setting spray and roll pencil 3) dot face with cute lil frecks 4) set with setting powder and spray

Eyebrows shape my face & it’s something that I have to do no matter what. Even when I don’t wear eye makeup I have to do my eyebrows because it makes me feel so put together. I also was never a fan of the feathery eye look up until Patrick Ta took over storm and really made it look super ethereal and I LOVED IT! I saw that he had this eyebrow wax and decided to try it out since I can just use it as an eyebrow setting gel as well if I don’t end up liking it. But this product worked so well and I love how it made my eyebrows look all day! It stayed in place all day and lasted thru a hot humid day as well! Texture: a tinted wax that’s not sticky Recommend?? Yes if you want the perfect eyebrows all day!! PATRICK TA - Major Brow Shaping Wax

Green + Gold Liner Look for Monolids!
A simple graphic liner look for my fellow monolided people! NYX - Slim Eye Pencil in Moss: easy to use, easy to smudge, but after setting it it didn’t transfer even on my monolids, color pay off is great, f**king love this muted green. NYX - Glitter Goals Liquid Eyeliner in Zodiac Queens: the formula is thinner than I expected and it takes a few strokes to get a solid line. but on the other hand we won’t mess up that easy. took off a star because after some time of wear it becomes almost crispy lol and peels off if you touch it. the brown shadow is actually the RIMMEL - Natural Bronzer Waterproof Bronzing Powder SPF 15 in 027 Sun Dance. long time favorite. this is probably my 3rd pan. I like to use my bronzer on my eyelids and nose to keep the color consistent on my face, plus it gives my eyes a bit more depth. for mascara I just used L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara in 201 Black. did it weigh down my lashes a bit? absolutely. did it make my lashes more longer, more visible and didn’t transfer onto my lids? also absolutely. I just believe everyone should embrace the eye shapes we were born with. there are definitely days I wish I have deep eye sockets and naturally soft, curled up lashes. but at the end of the day, my lashes protect my eyes, and my eye shapes are part of my heritage. I think my lashes look pretty good here and they fit the look.

Soft Sunset Eye Look for Monolids 🌅
Soft Sunset Eye Look for Monolids 🌅
Soft glam inspired by the color palette of sunsets! I used COLOURPOP - Yes, Please! palette for this look but of course you can use any similar red/yellow/orange shadows! So I personally think the key to eye make on monolids is depth. Therefore instead of designing the colors from inner corner out like most tutorials, I like to stack colors from lash line up. The closer to lash line, the deeper the color should be. So our eyes can be more open and defined. But when applying, we have to go from light to deep. Here are my steps: 1️⃣ I use *Champs* a neutral nude pink all over my lids. 2️⃣ I use *Mischief* a bright yellow to create the shape of the look. This really depends on your lid space. I usually go up until my invisible crease, where I feel the gap between a eyeball and my brow bone. 3️⃣ I use *Big Cocktails* a warm peachy orange to create the second layer of color, focusing on the inner half of the lid and filling the inner corner too. I go right above where my lids fold in, making sure I can see the color when I open my eyes and look straight. 4️⃣ I use *Spoiled* a rich dusty rose red on the outer half of my lid, and always dragging it along the lash line and out to make a soft wing shape. 5️⃣ I use *Chauffeur* a bright orange with gold glitter along the lower lash line. 6️⃣ I use *Louie* a shimmer dusty rose on the outer corner, connecting the color with my upper lid and with *Chauffeur*. 7️⃣ Finally I use *Butter Cake* a glittery champaign gold to brighten up the inner corner and then gently swipe the color from mid lid out to give the look a sprinkle of shine.
