Just when you've finally mastered winged eyeliner...
Meet the reverse wing. It's the outer corner flicks twin sister, and it's becoming a thing. Credited to Instagrammer dahliacreates, it's a look that has Instagram all abuzz as people flock to their mirrors to try their hand at taking their wing skills to the next level by bringing that line towards their nose.
To be honest, it's a look we're on the fence about. On one hand it adds an exotic touch to the eye and it's something that can be played with, as Dahlia shows in a photo taken after her original went viral.
That glitter accent is to die for! And I feel like winging the inner corner of your eye gives a person more space to play with, especially if their outer eye area is of a more hooded nature. But on the other hand, it doesn't feel like a look one could head to the office wearing, especially if the office is of a more conservative nature. It could be seen as distracting or a little 'out there'. But what's the point of makeup if you can't play? And could it be a case of wearing it often enough that it becomes the norm? I mean bikinis were frowned upon not that long ago until women went 'bugger this, we'll wear what we want' and now it's go-to beachwear for millions of women.
Of course, if you want to be all extra on it you can do a Dahlia and wing it both ways. Don't you love that symmetry? I love that symmetry. I think I love this look the most. Bless that balance's cotton socks.
So what say you? Beautiful or banal? Crazy or cool? Magnificent or meh? The next bikini? Or should it go the way of hyper-colour t-shirts?
