In The Know’s Lisa Azcona tested a viral trick that claims a simple bobby hairpin can give you perfect winged eyeliner. For anyone who is a makeup novice or doesn’t have a steady hand, getting a liquid liner to cooperate can be frustrating. So really anything that simplifies the process could prove to be indispensable.
“Getting them to look symmetrical is incredibly difficult,” Azcona said of winged eyes. “I’m hoping this hack will make it less of a struggle.”
“First, coat the open-ended side of the bobby pin with the eyeliner,” Azcona said. “Then angle the bobby pin and press it against the corner of your eyes like a stamp.”
She pressed the pin against the outer corner of her eyes and the pin left the outline of a winged tip on each. Then she filled the outlines in and added mascara to complete the look.
“I will admit that winged eyeliner is not my go-to look. But this hack changes the game,” Azcona said. “I can’t reiterate enough how easy this was. Liquid eyeliner tends to get really messy. But the bobby pin did half of the work for me. I’m impressed.”
