Any time Meghan Markle steps out, you can be sure she’ll be rocking some type of twist to her beauty look. During an appearance in September, she surprised us all when she had a red tint in her hair. And let’s not forget the time she stepped into the Royal spotlight and brought 90s glossy lips back into fashion with her.

So, when Meghan recently attended the 2021 Salute To Freedom Gala in New York, of course her makeup had an exciting touch.

For the occasion, Meghan wore a gorgeous vibrant red dress, which, usually, would be paired with a traditional black eyeliner, if you were going to wear any. But not for Meghan. Instead, she wore a deep plum eyeliner for a pop of clashing colour. In the words of Paris Hilton: loves it.

But that’s not all. Meghan usually outlines her eyes in a super dark colour for a circle of dramatic definition. Here's a quick reminder:

But yesterday, her go-to make-up artist Daniel Martin actually swept the deep purple eyeliner outwards into the perfect wing – and it looks like he used our go-to method.

Of course, there’s no one-size-fits-all technique to eyeliner and it depends on your eye shape and preference. But if you struggle, it’s always a good idea to use your eyebrows as a guide when drawing on your wing.

To do this, you should start by filling in your eyebrows first. Then, you can begin sketching on your winged eyeliner, ensuring that the end point of your eyeliner is in line with the end point of your eyebrow.

This is a technique many make-up artists rely on to ensure symmetry on both sides of the face and it actually makes drawing on winged eyeliner a lot easier.

Rumours are still swirling that Meg might be bringing out her own beauty line and if it happens, here's hoping for lots of pops of colour. Maybe she’ll sway us to finally step away from the black eyeliner…
