WINGED EYELINER: A DAYTIME DO OR DON'T?

8:49 AM

After writing this post, I tried a couple of the winged liner looks on {ps thanks for all the liner suggestions!} and.....meh. I can paint my lips the most shocking shade of orange or the brightest hue of pink I can find, and I feel totally confident. Swoop a  swipe of winged eyeliner on me, and I suddenly feel super self-conscious.

I wear glasses most of the time, so it's not really a tried-and-true look I fall back on in a pinch. However, I just LOVE the retro-inspired winged look when I see it in editorials, on the runway, and on the stylish gals on the street. It's a major bummer whenever I attempt it because it just looks a little 'off'. One reason just might be because I have deep-set eyes so it kind of covers the lined part when I look straight on. Seriously...I took about a zillion photos to get one where you can actually see the wing. Le sigh. The other reason? I'm not going to lie....I sometimes looks a little more chola than chic on me if I go a little too cray cray with the wing. Yep. It's a sad, sad truth.

But enough self-deprecation. The question still remains: do you ever wear a winged cat-eye look during the day? If so, where do you draw the line (literally and figuratively) for daytime wear?

Oh, and promise me you'll never do this....ok?

  3. Huh? You mean... I shouldn't wing my liner all the way up to my eyebrows?? Ha. I love this look! When I wing my liner for day though, I just smudge the ends... makes it slightly less severe.

  6. From a guy's standpoint, I like eyeliner any time. Perhaps more subtle use during the day, but those little wings on the edge are hot.
