My Pinterest Life #8: Cutting My Own Bangs and Winged Eyeliner

Hey All –

Today, I get a little crazy. Maybe it’s the rainy weather, but I’m feeling a little cooped up and experimental.

First up, winged eyeliner. I’ve tried to do this free-hand in the past and have always failed. I just haven’t been able to find the perfect spot for the flick – KWIM? So when I saw this tutorial on how to use Scotch tape to create winged liner, I was like YES!

Okay, so once again, I’m showing off my make-up free face. You’ve been warned.

Here I am with just the tape on my eyes. It was slightly uncomfortable and hard to blink, but hey, small price for getting this technique mastered.

tape Since I don’t use liquid liner, I dipped my wet shadow brush into navy blue shadow and drew little upward lines along the tape.

Now, more terrifying than make-up that can be washed away: Cutting my own bangs into a side-swept style. I did this with cuticle scissors since I couldn’t find my good scissors. After blowing out my hair, I re-watched this video:

I started like this:

The final product:

Not too bad. I’ll probably stick with getting them cut at the salon, but it’s nice to know how to do a little trim at home. Pinterest WIN.

I’m 2 for 2 today, and am going to call it quits. I have some grocery shopping to do for Sunday’s Cake Extravaganza. Hazelnut flour, anyone?

Until next time, Kittens,

xoxo ~ dawn
