A winged eyeliner look is always a classic, and one with a hint of color can be an especially fun holiday makeup look. Learn how to create this colored winged eyeliner look using powder eyeshadow for a soft winged eyeliner effect.

Skincare and Makeup Prep

Firstly start by prepping your skin for makeup application using skincare. If you’re looking to really prep your skin for a big event and give it a boost of hydration use the Advanced Génifique Hydrogel Melting Sheet Mask. Containing the equivalent of one bottle of Advanced Génifique Face Serum this sheet mask instantly plumps the skin and leaves pores visibly reduced, and skin texture visibly refined making it perfect for a smooth makeup application.

As this makeup look focuses on the eyes it’s important to care for the eye area (especially since this look uses purple tones which can sometimes accentuate blueness and darkness under the eyes) Before applying any makeup use Advanced Génifique Eye Light Pearl Eye Illuminator Youth Activating Concentrate underneath the eyes. This eye serum is lightweight and helps the skin around the eye area look smoother as it targets under eye bags and fine lines.

If you’ve skipped the face mask (or just want an extra level of hydration) smooth a small amount of Advanced Génifique Face Serum over the face. This award-winning serum helps to strengthen the skin barrier and visibly improve wrinkles, skin texture, fine lines, and skin tone over time. After applying the face serum moisturize skin with Rénergie Muliti-Action Ultra Cream this day cream tightens, lifts and firms the skin and contains SPF 30 to protect skin throughout the day.

Face Makeup to Complement the Colored Winged Eyeliner

After you’ve primed and prepped your skin for total hydration using skincare products you may like to even out your skin tone with a foundation like Teint Idole Ultra 24 Hour Long Wear Foundation. The formula has a long-wearing natural matte finish that lasts for up to 24 hours and is suitable for all skin types. Following on from foundation apply Teint Idole Ultra Wear All Over Concealer onto dark circles, redness, breakouts, or anywhere else where needed.

After applying foundation and concealer it’s a wise idea to add some color to the cheeks. Apply a shimmering pink blush shade like Blush Subtil in Absolutely Happy and focus the application on the apples of the cheeks for a fresh and youthful look.

Prior to going creating the soft winged eyeliner look start by contouring the eyelids with the satin brown eyeshadow shade in the Lancôme's Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palettes in Nude Sculptural. Once you’ve created a neutral base and contoured the eyes use a small angled brush to apply a red-pink shade like to the eyes in a winged eyeliner shape. Using a powder eyeshadow as eyeliner is especially great if you struggle with creating perfect eyeliner. Using the shade to create a colored soft winged liner look is a fun way to add a pop of color to your makeup look.

Winged eyeliner is never complete without luscious long lashes. To create long lashes that complement your winged liner look start by priming eyelashes with Cils Booster XL Enhancing Lash Primer. Designed to be used before mascara this mascara primer contains micro-fibers which grip to the lashes to create a base for your mascara application. The perfect prep for your lashes it helps make lashes look longer and works to maximize the results of your mascara.

After applying your lash primer slowly start to build up your mascara with Définicils High Definition Mascara in 01 Black. This mascara has a lightweight buildable formula so you can customize the length you wish to achieve without your lashes clumping.

Finish with Lipstick

A bold red lipstick shade teamed with colored winged eyeliner may sound a little daunting, but it works! Apply our L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick in 132 Caprice to the lips directly from the tube and really focus on creating a defined cupids bow. Since the eyeliner is quite subtle the lipstick doesn’t clash or complete with the winged eyeliner look.
