Temporary Tattoo Eyeliner Is Now A Thing And We’re Obsessed

We NEED to try this...

We all appreciate a winged liner. Mainly because deep down we know the time, effort and tears that went into creating it, it’s certainly not an easy job.

We have tried everything that promises to create a ‘wing so sharp it could kill’ look. From eyeliner stamps to tape and stencils… if it promises a perfect flick, we’ve tried it. So when we came across Gina Frey’s outta-this-world liner skills, we had so many questions. Starting with… how on earth is this even possible?

Been experimenting with #temporary tattoos and graphic liner lately. Used @blackmooncosmetics #blackmooncosmetics liquid lipstick in “Bones” buffed all over my lid. I love to use liquid lipsticks as eye bases for temporary tattoos because they don’t slip or budge and give the tattoo something matte to adhere to while also creating a barrier for the skin. My tattoo from @alyshanett // @madebytattooyou was super easy to apply. I trimmed very closely around the lettering and applied to my lid using a damp q-tip. I tweaked the script gently on both ends with @katvondbeauty tattoo liner in “trooper black” to give a more wing-like effect! This stayed on ALL day long until removal. Bottom lashes are cut up @ardell_lashes #ardelllashes

Woah.

So, it turns out she actually uses temporary tattoos to create these looks. And hey, she could be on to something here…

Temporary Tattoo Eyeliner

(Warning, it is a bit more complicated than it looks and it may take several attempts to get it right!)

Gina used a temporary tattoo from Tattoo You – but any skinny temporary tatt would work.

Before you start, apply an eye shadow primer in the area you want to use the temporary tatt to ensure it sticks. (We love Urban Decay’s but any you have should probably work)

Sounds odd, but try not to move your face too much! Any smiling / frowning will change your eye shape and therefore wrinkle the tattoo.

Apply like you would any other temporary tattoo and finish with mascara. Ta-daaaa!

This may just become the new festival trend this summer, who knows?

🗡ACE OF SWORDS🗡Back on my temporary tattoo makeup look game 😉 And for a good reason- you’ll find out soon! I’ve had a few looks like this one 🥀🌹 cooking in my brain for awhile.. time to let em out! ••• EYES: Temporary tattoo designed by beautiful friend @alyshanett and her tattoo artist @timhendricks https://www.tattooyou.com/temporary-tattoos/tim-and-alysha/ applied over #katvondbeauty lock-it foundation in L45N. 🔮✨ @makeupgeekcosmetics blush in “date night” as a base shade, blended with @sugarpill “love+.” @katvondbeauty x @toofaced “Better together” palette “swoon” and “devotion” all up on my lid. I also used the new #kvdbeauty Everlasting Lip Liner as eyeliner in “Outlaw” and “Homegirl” – these are formulated for lips but I have no issues using them on my sensitive eyes and because they are water resistant the color STAYS on my waterline for HOURS! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻I’m so impressed by them. My lashes are @shopvioletvoss “Unicorn flare” faux mink 3d Lashes. The little blood drop is “outlaw” liquid lipstick from #katvondbeauty with a little white out for dimension applied with the @smithcosmetics 202 micro liner brush!
