How to do a winged eyeliner

Winged eyeliner is a challenge everybody seems to face. There is nothing more annoying than spending ages on redoing your flick or trying to match both sides. I do struggle with it everytime i try to do a winged eyeliner, but one technique helped me to downsize the amount of time i spend on doing a decent eyeliner.

You can use this technique with any type of eyeliner. Eyeshadow or gel liners are probably the best ones to use but it works with an eyeliner pen too.
So first you draw a line in your mind from the end of your eyebrow to the outer corner of your eye. Then you place your brush/pen on the line at the point you want your eyeliner flick to end and then draw the line down to the outer corner of your eye.
I like to do this on the other eye right afterwards and compare the two to make sure they are similar.
Now you can do your eyeliner line along your lashline until you reach the outer corner of your eye.
Last but not least you connect the two lines and you can make the part between the beginning of your flick and the line along your lashline as thin or as thick as you want. Depending on the look you are going for.

This technique took my eyeliner flicking (is that even a word?) from over 30 minute application and a lot of correcting and removing to a maximum of 15 minutes and a perfect result.

Do you have any tips on applying winged eyeliner?
