Simple winged and mascara– Always remember to even out the tone of your skin by applying a loose powder compact or a natural base so that the eye makeup comes out nicely and prominently. This one is the simplest of all the combinations. Just apply mascara to the lashes after you are done with the eyeliner. You can also apply transparent mascara instead of black one. Mascara provides the much needed volume and shape to the lashes for the liner to show up. No eye shadow is needed in this style.

The double color style– They look great for a party. Just put a thin coat of the winged style liner and highlight it further by putting a line in a contrast color. You can choose the color of your dress or a shade in a sparkle golden, silver or bronze will also look great.
