Since Ariana Grande released her music video for No Tears Left to Cry, the internet (us included) just couldn't get enough of her beauty looks. Her rainbow highlighter and silver braided ponytail instantly caught our eye, but that metallic beauty moment was hands-down our favorite from the bunch. Simply put, the music video has no shortage of cop-worthy looks.
However, out of all the makeup tutorials we've seen online, this one from Aryanna Epperson stood out. She recreated the soft smokey eye that the singer wore with her silver braid, which also featured her signature dramatic wing (yes, that wing that seems impossible to do freehand).
Luckily, Aryanna found a beauty hack that will make the look easier to cop even for beginners. She used an old yet always reliable beauty tool: tape!
Lining her lower lashline with the tape, Aryanna sculpted her crease and lashline with dark eyeshadow to create the base for the eyeliner. Her cat eye went on smoothly after, since the tape already gave her a stencil for a sharp wing. Another tip: Align the end of your flick with the tip of your brows to make sure both wings look similar. We swear, with some practice, this technique will help you get that perfect wing every time.
Oh, and BTW, always remove some of the tackiness from the tape before sticking it onto your eye area! This will help reduce the tugging you'll need to do when you're done.
