The emotional struggles of applying winged eyeliner
Look, we all just want to look like 60s queens with fierce eyeliner flicks. Alas, the road to cat-eyes flawlessness is a rocky one.
Whether we're trying to master the art of a liquid liner with a wobbly hand, or working so hard to even up our flicks that they end up HUGE, the winged eyeliner is such a CLASSIC that it's worth the effort. But – damn – it's hard.
Thankfully, we are not alone in the struggle for perfect lines. These folks get it.
