Just when I thought I had mastered the art of nailing the perfect winged eyeliner look (both eyes to have the same length, thickness and angle) another Instagram trend came along to present a whole new challenge.
My beautiful ladies, meet the ribbon eyeliner look, otherwise known as the twisted liner, corkscrew liner, or spiral liner. Whatever you want to call it, you have to try this super cool way to dress up your cat eye.
So how exactly do you achieve this look?
As you can probably deduce from the name, this eyeliner trend involves a twisted shape. More specifically, first things first, you need to draw the perfect straight thick black line along your lashes and angle it up at the edge as you would do when creating a classic cat flick. Once you’ve finally got your flicks even (because THAT takes about half an hour on its own, let’s face it), you need to grab a colored eyeliner pen and create a twisted shape around your black flick, like a ribbon. As you can see from the pictures below you can achieve the look using multicolor pens, or with just one block color, or you can add a metallic or glitter liner into the mix to up the stakes even more – but either way, prepare to spend a lot of time squinting in front of the mirror, but the results are worth it.
The easiest way to see how the ribbon eyeliner look is done is to copy existing examples on Instagram before you invent your own take. I rounded up 15 of my favorites below, whether you want to start simple or graduate to a multicolored, double helix. The good news for beginners? This trend is all about being creative and expressing yourself. So if you happen to mess up the first few times, just call it an artistic decision.
