I can't scroll through the Instagram of New York City-based makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes without wanting to bookmark every single glittery, graphic, and dreamy eye makeup look she posts. One of her signatures, in particular, is as practical as it is stunning. She's come up with a genius winged eyeliner trick for those of us with hooded eyes.
For those with this eye shape, which typically involves the skin around your eyes folding over your creases, drawing on eyeliner that looks as razor-sharp as Ariana Grande's can be difficult. If you create your flicks while your eye is closed, a dip often occurs when you open your eye.
I have hooded eyes and often overcompensate to make my wing more visible by bringing it toward my temples. Not everyone is as daring as me, though. Hughes's trick offers a solution. You draw on liner in a batwing-like shape, so when your eye is open your liner looks like any other cat eye. However, when it's closed it has an unexpected swooped design. For this reason, Hughes says it's two looks in one.
