The Graphic liner makeup look has become my new jam. All free hand and only using liquid lipsticks! I've fallen back in love with wearing a winged liner. I think I've been doing it since I was a teenager LOL! Eyeliner and mascara were the only things I wore. How times have changed and obviously with time I feel that I have slowly got a little better at it, and now to a point where I can start to get really creative with my winged liners. I've seen a couple of girls that have taken it  one step further with their winged liner and have created some inspiring masterpieces , this, I had to try. 

For this look, I made sure that the eyes were the centre of attention, which meant keeping everything really minimal.  I've created two ways in which you could incorporate a graphic colour liner into your life. For the first look, I used 'Sleek Matte Me in fandango purple'. Super easy and fuss free, this is a great and easy way to incorporate colour into your normal makeup routine. Especially for those who don't really wear a lot of shadows on your eyes. For me, this was a great way to use some of the lip colours I don't usually use every day. 

Now if you are someone that would like to take one,two or three steps further, and are very confident in creating a winged liner try this!. Now obviously you need to draw them on freehand. I would recommend looking for some inspiration - look at shapes, lines, and what you feel would work best for your eye shape, then go off from your favourite graphic shapes, and of course adding your own creativity and personal twist to it. Also look at the tools you already have at home, if you don't have an eyeliner brush try using string or tape. For this look, I used the Sigma E11 brush to create the wings. You could also include more coloured liners, shadows and glitter! the possibilities are endless; don't be afraid to experiment with your makeup you never know you might end up loving it.  

For the second look, using the same Sleek liquid lippy I simply followed the contours of my eye shape and really subtly  also incorporated  Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick in 'Aphrodite' to highlight some parts of the liner. Purchased from beautybay.com.  If you wanted to take your graphic liner further and add more dimension to the look, add some gloss! - (of course, I would say that). 
Hope this inspires anyone to get creative with your winged liners! If you do try this out please tag me on ig @textbookbeauty. Peace!
