I would be lying if I said I was always able to swoop on eyeliner and get that winged look with ease. It was always a case of trial and error. However, since I’ve gotten older and my brows have started to drop, getting a winged liner look that opens up my eyes feels harder than ever. Because I have the drooping and hooded lids, strategically placing my liner so it’s going up towards my temple (thank you Katie Jane Hughes for the life-changing tip) requires overcompensating and drawing a wing that lifts my eyes to enhance my shape instead of following my lash line down. Things can get pretty messy—until now.
Adding to the “Where have you been all my life?” category of beauty, I found this Tresluce Beauty Line It Up Edge Corrector ($12) to be the one tool that helps me line my hooded eyes easily and in no time. Rather than going back and forth with Q-tips, micellar water and liner remover that can smear away the rest of my face makeup (and sometimes my eyeshadow), this magic eraser gives me the chance to fix my mistakes and re-route rogue lines or thin out liner that is too thick for my eye shape.
As far as ingredients go, Line It Up includes emollient isodedcane and hydrating jojoba seed oil. While it cleans up uneven lines, it won’t irritate or dry out the eye area. It pairs well with all liquid eyeliner and especially with the Tresluce Eterno Liquid Liner which has a nice petite tip and is highly pigmented.
How to Use:
After creating your winged liner look, open the Line It Up corrector and swipe away any mistakes or use it to create sharper lines. You can also use it to clean up fall out or to carve out a clean cut-crease shadow. Make sure to wipe off the tip after each use so you don’t drag older product onto your face with each use.
The Bottom Line:
If you can always line one eye perfectly but not the other, are overlying your hooded eyes or find it difficult to nail a wing or cat’s-eye, this little affordable tool is totally worth keeping on your vanity and in your purse and travel bag.
