At varying points in our lives, we’ve all had our eyeliner slips – from the mild episodes where we end up with unattractive jagged clumps to the really bad episodes where we come out looking like someone who just shed black tears. You may have tried the spoon method or the eyelash curler hack and still haven’t been able to get the perfect winged liner. Not to worry, the winged eyeliner is one tricky skill to master albeit learnable.

Read on to learn more on how to do the perfect winged eyeliner and the eyeliner products to use in order to achieve the best results! 

Steady Your Hands: This is the first and most important element in getting the perfect winged eyeliner as it determines the general outcome. Be sure to rest your elbows on a flat and steady surface to get the right amount of control over your hand movements. 

Start Applying Eyeliner at The Upper Lash Line: Locate your upper lash line and draw an extended line on the outer edge of your eyes. You don’t have to complete the line in one stroke, so make them short if you have to. As you break your strokes, try not to double on them. You want to start out as thin as possible and end on the same note in order to achieve a really sleek winged eyeliner, especially if your eyes are small.

Work Your Way Outwards: Gently work your way out towards the corner of your eye as you continue drawing your short strokes, you can always build up on it later. Continue with your strokes to draw a tail-like shape following the curve of your lower lid. Mildly tug at your eye from the outer corner if you need to smooth your skin out more. Lastly, fill in any openings between the winged tail and your line drawn to create a sleek and perfect winged eyeliner.

Kim Kardashian West has taken a fashion company to court. Kim just filed suit against Missguided USA, an online retailer that sells outfits resembling ones worn by celebs, and oftentimes by Kim herself, for using her name and image without permission to advertise their own “knock-off” designs.

In the documents, obtained by TMZ, Kim cites multiple instances where Missguided posted its own versions of outfits, Kim was photographed wearing. Kim claims the outfits are often whipped up and peddled in a matter of days, sometimes hours.

Her lawsuit includes a side by side of her own post, next to one from Missguided as evidence of what pisses her off about the company.

She also says Missguided often tags her on their social media posts, and includes photos of her giving people the wrong idea that she’s working with the company.

The Missguided lawsuit is just one of many more to come against fashion knockoff brands.

Kim just slammed Fashion Nova for recreating her vintage Mugler “boob belt” dress from the other night, saying this practice by fast fashion companies was “devastating.” Fashion Nova did not use her image to sell their stuff.

Missguided, however, used her image and that’s why Kim’s going after them.

Kim is asking a judge for an injunction to immediately stop Missguided from using her image …. and she wants damages in excess of $10 million.
