There’s no denying that there’s a certain art to applying liquid liner: it takes practice. But it’s also more than worth the effort once you master it.

On the front of a beauty supplement for the September 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, Barbara Palvin wears that perfected winged black liner matched by red lips. The liner here starts from the very inner corner of the eye and sweeps thickly up towards the eyebrow. Palvin adds her own tip on getting the artistry right:

“The best tip I ever got backstage was to pull your eyes out to the side before lining them – you’ll get symmetry every time.”
