Definitely not your basic flick.
LOTD: This Winged Liner Trend Is About to Take Over Instagram
Definitely not your basic flick.

Forget about your basic cat eye for a second, because a new winged liner look is having a moment on Instagram. Clue: it's monochrome and looks much like your go-to smokey eye. Check it out below!

We first saw this trend on Olivia Culpo last month; her makeup artist, Hung Vann Go, blended the edges of her bold black liner to create a winged effect.


Not long after, Bella Hadid showed up sporting a hypersharp version by Patrick Ta. Look at how much that wing lifts her face!

Lauren Reid hopped on the trend, too, with help from her MUA Mac Igarta, who did a revamp of Olivia's look by lining Lauren's inner tearducts and creating a soft gradient with the outer flick. Paired with an ultra-tight ponytail, this look basically gives a botox effect sans the needles.
