The term, practice makes perfect applies to practically everything, especially when it comes to perfecting the wingtip liner. I’ve spent years attempting every single “genius hack” in the book; scotch tape, pencil liner as a guide, even connecting the dots. Seems a bit extreme but that deep black matt liner adds the most sophisticated finish to every look – I strive to perfect it like I need the latest “it bag”. What I discovered was a real surprise, it’s not a trick to be hacked, rather a key element that lays in the actual liquid and the applicator itself. Discover my go-to below.

Get The Look:
It’s safe to say that I’ve been through all liquid liners. There is a dedicated drawer (the eye liner grave) in my vanity for them. After a recent trip to Urban Outfitters of all places, I discovered Ardency Inn’s Modster liner so I gave it a go. My issue with other liners is that it’s not thick enough and runs into the crease of my eyelid. Monster is honestly the only one I’ve found that stays all day without running and gives me that dark, matt liner look that I love. The flocked applicator gives you ultimate control for smooth glide application. My trick to creating the shape? Close your eye and follow the natural curve up and out to your desired end point. From there, go back and fill in the rest.
Oribe Texturizing Spray
Looking for that lit-from-within glow? Here’s your secret weapon. I used to think that certain women were slugging gallons of water to get that complexion. Wrong. It’s found in the smallest little container of RMS Beauty Luminizer. I use my damp beauty blender or my pinky and dab the highlighter into the inner corner of my eye, the center of the lid, underneath the brow bone and of course on the cheek bones.
