How to Apply Winged Eyeliner on Asian Monolids

Sometimes the most beautiful way to enhance Asian eyes is to just keep them simple.  After all, when everyone is wearing a full face of makeup emphasizing each area of their face with so much color; the boldest statement made can be the most minimalistic.

Take for instance the winged eyeliner, classic and simple yet draws major attention.  Can this be done on monolid eyes? Of course.  If you have ever watched the movie The Flowers of War with Christian Bale, (If you haven't seen this movie, it is on Netflix streaming, make sure you have a box of kleenex or a bucket close by to hold your tears!) the ladies in this movie are truly gorgeous and classic. 

Eye Anatomy for Eyeshadow Application

The emphasis is on the eyeliner with the well shaped brows.  This in turn gives space on the face allowing people to see the face as a whole and not just the division of eyeshadow, blush color, lipcolor.  To complete the simplicity of the eyes, a strong lip goes well with this.  Red would be classic but any color other than nude would be good. 

Again, I use Susan who has monolids to demonstrate the winged eyeliner.  What is important about winged eyeliner is placement of that wingtip.  If it is not lifting, it won't fly!

1-Prep the eye area in the usual manner and make sure you apply a smooth layer of foundation to the eye area.  2-Draw a strong eyebrow.  Remember, the winged eyeliner is the major attraction and to complement that look a strong eyebrow goes well with it.

Instead of just applying the eyeliner, I like to add some shape and shimmer to the eyes.  3-Take a shimmery beige eyeshadow and just apply it onto the lid area only.  This just gives a touch of light onto the lids when they open and close.  4-Next, take a medium to medium dark brown and apply just at the outer end of the bottom lashline and go around the corner onto the top lid.  Don't apply it entirely onto the lid.  This will create the illusion of depth and also encloses the lid area.

The winged eyeliner is next.  My method of a winged eyeliner may differ from yours.  I just prefer it this way because it works on any eye shape and on any age including mature eyes.

On monolids, it is the same as any other shaped eyes.  The red line represents the crease of the monolid.  The end of the line will just hit the bone of the eye.  6-If you are a beginner, the best way to start is to just feel where the crease hits the bone and start the liner there.  Go downward, it might not hit the outer end of the lashline because it is a winged eyeliner which is mostly drawn on the lid rather than peeking out at the end of the eye like a crows foot.  (This is why the brown eyeshadow was applied, not only to create depth but to minimize the look of that gap.)  7 & 8-Lift the brush and start again at the inner corner of the eye, allowing the liner to meet and continue upwards.

9- Without the red "crease" line.  10- How it looks when the eye looks downward.  11-How it looks when the eye is open.

Add some lashes and/or mascara and that is one classic and beautiful winged eyeliner look on Asian monolids.

Special thanks to Susan!!! xoxo
