First, place the handle against the corner of your eye and draw a line. After that, flip the spoon over and place the curved portion of the spoon against your eye. Use the round edge to create another line that’s connected to the first line. Then, remove the spoon and fill in the outline. Just like that, you’ll have beautiful winged eyeliner!

I Personally use & highly recommend Maybelline New York waterproof gel eyeliner for a Dramatic eye look.
