Everyday makeup look: Illuminated skin and winged liner

This has been one of my go-to looks recently. Since it’s winter, I’ve been trying to stave off dull skin by throwing basically every illuminating product I own onto my face.

I’ve also made an unofficial New Year’s resolution to try to perfect winged eyeliner this year. Winged liner and bold lip colors scare me to death, so I’m trying to take steps to become more comfortable with them. I think I’ve already gone out with winged liner more times this year than I did all of last year! Go me!

If I were to change anything about this look, it would be to add a satin eyeshadow and inner corner highlight to my eyes.

    I love how youve done your liner here, not too extreme of a wing. It makes me think maube winged liner isnt too intimidating to try ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have been all about highlighters lately! I just got a Laura Mercier one that ive been loving, and i adore hard candy’s “bronzer” in tiki, or becca’s highlighter in moonstoneโ€ฆi may have a problem ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lovely post as always!

      Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve always been super afraid of winged liner. My only advice is to practice! I’m still experimenting with the shape/angle of mine to see what looks best.

      I have a Becca shimmering skin perfecter I haven’t used in a while. I’ll have to dust it off! Thanks for the other recs! I’m so into all types of highlighters lately ๐Ÿ˜€

    How do you like the Bobbi Brown concealer? I have really dark circles.

      I love it! I think it does a great job of canceling out blue/purple under eye circles. However, you do have to set it with powder, and/or use another concealer on top of it because it will crease if you have fine lines.
