The Perfect Winged Liner Guide.

{This post contains PR Samples by}

I have been wearing a winged liner since I was about 14. I just can't do my makeup without it, I literally feel naked. I would rather not do my brows than skipping my liner. With that being said, I feel like I tried many many liners and techniques over the years and thought this would be the perfect post to share with you guys. So here we go.

The Liner
The most important part about getting that perfect winged liner is the product itself. The kind of product you like really comes down to your preferences. I love a felt tip and waterproof black liner. My current faves are the NYX Epic Ink Liner and the Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyeliner Pen. For days when I don't need my liner to last forever, I choose the Charlotte Tilbury Feline Flick. Not my fave for a longlasting wing, but an easy product to use anyway.

The Technique 
First,  you will want to draw a thin line in the inner corner of your eye as close to the lashline as you can. Cover around half to three-quarters of your lash line. Then it's time to define the wing. When you are happy with the wing simply connect the two and fill the gap. YAY!

The Style
There are many many styles when it comes to a winged liner or even a liner in general. Just try out what suits your personal style. This is the fun part!

The Heat Proof Summer Makeup.

As much as I am craving autumn and the colder days right now, it is still quite hot here in Germany. So today I thought I would share with you my heatproof summer makeup products that I use right now. I never really wear heavy and full coverage makeup anymore. However, in the summer it's even more important to me to use light products. Nobody got time for cakey makeup that is literally melting of your face. So what are the kind of products that I use to achieve my heat proof makeup?

Embrace the dewiness. 
Firstly, embracing the dewiness is key for me. There is no point in trying to stay matte when it's over thirty degrees. So instead of fighting the glow, let's embrace it. The best way to do that is by sticking to cream products as much as possible. A cream bronzer, highlighter, and blush look much more natural, especially in the summer. Whenever I use too many powder products in the heat, a cakey mess is almost guaranteed.

Setting Sprays. 
If you take anything away from this post, then please invest in a good setting spray. It not only makes sure that your makeup lasts longer but it also takes away the powderiness of your base makeup. I always need to set my undereye concealer with a bit of powder. Using a setting spray afterwards makes sure that everything blends in seamlessly.

Ditch full coverage products. 
Nobody is perfect. So try and ditch the full coverage products. And to be honest, sometimes heavy-duty foundations just accentuate your flaws. So maybe try and go for a lighter bb or cc cream instead and just conceal the spots that you really want to have covered. Or maybe ditch the foundation all together? You got this!
