#BestOf2015 Top 10 Celebs Who Rocked The Winged Liner In 2015

So you think, 2015 just ‘flew’ by? I say, “On a ‘wing!’”

This year, we were all high on the winged liner: From the college queens to the office divas, everyone exhibited their ‘cat eyes!’

The celebs have always been our fashion torch bearers and the trend of the winged eye was no such exception. When it came to winging it out, Bolly and Holly girls managed an A-level performance. Obviously!

Let’s see which divas ended up ‘winn(g)ing’ our hearts. ☺

Still wondering how to get that?! Duh! Make use of your ‘edgy’ business card if you find drawing it freehand too tricky. Real Life hack from real Sona, right there!

2. Kareena Kapoor Khan, smokey extended wings  

These smokey extended wings worn oh-so-elegantly by Mrs Khan needs to last longer. For that you need to tune your eyeliner with the color of your eye shadow. Basically, use the one that matches. First, pencil line your eyes and then apply eye shadow on top to keep the liner in its place.

3. Sonam Kapoor, the golden wings

All that glitters IS gold… proves Sonam!

This effect is given best by liquid eyeliners. However, if your hands are not yet steady for that, use a pencil first. Now you can trace your way over it using a gel!

4. Taylor Swift, dramatic thick winged look

A lover and mother of cats needs to perfect the cat eye, that too ‘Swift-ly!’

For this effect, hold your kohl liner right over the flame (just the tip of it!!!). After a few seconds, test it at the back of your hands. You have created your own gel eyeliner! Now nail all that ‘drama!’

5. Deepika Padukone, murky and hot winged eye

For a murky and hot winged eye you need to tic-tac-toe a little! 😉

Draw a hashtag towards the outer corners of your eyelids and smudge them with a sponge. Keep playing until you get the smoke you want. Now wing it!

6. Beyoncé, sharp winged liner

For a sharp winged liner like Queen Bee’s, you have to draw the flick inwards rather than outwards. Drawing the wing towards your eyes will make it easier for you to decide where you will be ending ‘the cut’!

7. Jacqueline Fernandez, subtle winged eye

A subtle cat eye can be put on by anyone anywhere. It is understated enough for an ‘unadventurous’ situation and tame enough for beginners to get started with this trend! Jacqueline looks mesmerizing with it, doesn’t she?

8. Aditi Rao Hydari, typical thin flick  

When in doubt… Pout! Preparing for @gqindia #gqawards

For a dawn-ish fresh look like Miss Hydari’s, use brown in lieu of black. That will give you a more flattering air. An ashy brown will work wonders on your eye and also you need not worry about your eye colour or shape. A brown liner is less harsh than a black one.

9. Selena Gomez, burgundy cat eye

Thank you @chrisclassen @kystyle @lonavigi and @hungvanngo ☺️☺️☺️

Selena raised the bar of cat eye-ing to another level with this look. A burgundy cat eye to compliment the gown that she has put on gives her a balanced but glamorous look.

You can do the same with an eyeshadow of the colour of your choice.

10. Rihanna, perfect cat eyes

For the perfect, people go to insane levels! I am not hinting at you, RiRi! 😉 But for the perfect wing we suggest you use the handle of your spoon for drawing the angle and its curve to create the amazing shape. Lastly fill your flick!

Hope these hacks help you coz even though 2015 is ending, the winged cat eye fever has just begun!

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster.” This Isaac Asimov line, embraces my love for writing in the finest and most desperate way that it is and should be! I was tormented by the earnestness of the written word not very early in my journey. But once smitten, it has helped me devour life twice over; savoring the moment and indulging in its memories. As a flâneuse, I wander to understand the intricacies of human relationships. Realizing that, they are just different manifestations of the same feeling of love, has been my greatest learning. I seek to share its opulence through the words I type.
