Party Makeup Ideas- All about Winged Eyeliner

I plan to keep my fantasy of fashion alive by following this season’s hot makeup trend, the winged eyeliner. I often try different makeup styles sometimes I succeed, sometimes I miss but I always have fun!

Have you mastered applying the winged cat eye eyeliner yet? Me neither! I have found, however, all the tricks for applying it precisely. It is obvious, I am obsessed with the ’60s style eyeliner and it is my hot season’s perfect party makeup choice.

For the upcoming Christmas events my lovely makeup artist, Elena, who shares my enthusiasm to try new styles is doing my makeup. She is really good at adapting makeup trends to my face. Wing it out girls 🙂

History of Winged Eyeliner- Celebrity Fashion Icons

In the 1920s, Tutankhamun’s tomb was discovered, introducing the use of eyeliner to the Western world. The 1920s were an era associated with many changes in women’s fashion, and women felt more free to apply makeup more liberally.

In the 1960s, liquid eyeliner was used to create thick black lines around the eyes in the makeup fashion associated with designers like Mary Quant and fashion icons like Brigitte Bardot and Marilyn Monroe.
