  • For me what is most comfortable is first outlining the upper lash line from inner to outer corner and then creating a flick, taking lower lash line as guide. ( That means sketching a wing from the outer corner of eye imagining it as it is an extension of lower lash line ).
  • With this effortless technique you don’t need to worry about unequal wings on both sides.
