Winged eyeliner, as beautiful as it may be, can sometimes be a tad challenging to perfect. Winged eyeshadow, on the other hand, is a bit easier to achieve. Designed to create the same angular effect, winged eyeshadow takes the look to the next level by extending the wing up toward your crease and eyebrow bone for a dramatic finish. So, you can totally expect this eye makeup trend to turn heads every time you hit the town. Below, we introduce you not only to the step-by-step process of achieving a cat eye eyeshadow look but also the best eye makeup to bring it to life. Ready to rock a new beauty look? Keep scrolling!
Here’s everything you need to know about creating a winged eyeshadow makeup look.

Get the look by following these simple steps:
As with any makeup look you want to last, whether you adorn your eyes, face, or lips, it’s essential to start with a primer. A touch of eye makeup primer on your lids is all you need. This can help create a smooth base for the rest of your eye makeup application and allow your makeup to wear more evenly throughout the day.
Now, the moment you’ve been waiting for—learning how to create a cat eye eyeshadow look! Regardless of the eye shadow color you use to accentuate your beauty look, the process is all the same. Using a dense tapered eye shadow brush, apply the eye shadow from the outer corner of your eye and extend the shade in a slight diagonal line toward your crease. Finish up by creating a sharp corner back toward the inner corner of your eye for a defined look.
Next, use a fluffy eye shadow brush to help blend the eye shadow onto your actual lid, while also diffusing sharp-looking edges. Realized that you blended your eyeshadow too much and want a shaper cat eye look? No need to fret! Simply dip an angled eye makeup brush into some micellar water to clean things up. Easy, peasy!
Editor’s tip: Having trouble getting the shape right? Use a piece of regular adhesive tape as a guide!
This step is totally optional, but well worth it if you want to enhance the shape of your eye. We particularly love the contrasting look of black eyeliner on peach and metallic eye shadows, and gold velvet on black eye shadow.
If you’re feeling particularly daring, you can also define your look even further with floating crease eyeliner.
After applying your eyeliner (unless you choose to skip eyeliner altogether), prep your eyelashes with a swipe of lash primer before following up with a coat of mascara.
Once you finish your bold winged eyeshadow look, you’ll likely want to move forward with the rest of your face makeup. Personally, we love the look of natural-looking skin with this eye shadow look, as bold lids and clean skin is one of the most on-trend seasonal looks.
Touch up a bit directly under your eyes in case there was any eye shadow fall-out. To brighten the area, blend a couple of small dots of concealer into place, then you’re free to fall in love with what’s sure to become your new go-to makeup look.
