Woman’s genius eyeliner filter trick helps achieve ‘perfect wing’ every time


If you’re not a make-up artist, or don’t have the time to practice perfecting certain make-up techniques and skills, the idea of trying them out could be daunting.

From contouring to baking the face and cut creases, there are so many thing we just don’t even know where to start with.

But when it comes to eyeliner and achieving a killer wing, a TikTok user has got us covered.

Imogen Thorpe, who posts under @imogenthorpehair, shared a video on the social media platform revealing a simple life hack for applying liquid eyeliner.

And it looks like it could be a game-changer.

In the clip, Imogen explains how she uses her smartphone as part of the trick.

She gets up an app with filters, like Instagram, Snapchat or even TikTok and finds one that makes her look like she’s wearing full make-up – including winged eyeliner.

The filter is then used as a template and she just draws on her own eye where the eyeliner is projected on her camera screen.

Imogen explained: “I legit put this filter on to do the perfect winged liner.

“WTF is life in 2021.”

At the end of the clip, she removes the filter and shows how the eyeliner she drew on looks just as good as the fake one.

Her video quickly went viral, being watched more than 588,000 times and garnering over 71,000 likes.

Many were impressed by her eyeliner hack, with one saying: “This is actually genius.”

Another replied: “This is probably the smartest thing I’ve ever seen.”

A third admitted: “I did this with nose contour and GIRLLLLL AMMMMAAZIIINGGGG!”

Someone else wrote: “OMG!”

“She is living in 2030,” proclaimed a different user.

A sixth added: “This is low-key next level thinking.”
