When we asked RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Shangela Laquifa Wadley what she can’t live without, she mentioned Liquid Eye-Lie-Ner from Lady Gaga’s Haus Laboratories. She swears by it for creating perfect winged liner. Its magic is in the brush and pigment combination: The brush is thin enough for precise linework (which Shangela says is a must for a wing), while the black is deep and pigmented enough to stay on all day. Currently, the liner is 60 percent off when you buy it on Amazon, making it an ultra-affordable $14. The liner comes with wing-tip stickers. Use them to fake a wing if your freehand liner flick isn’t quite cutting it.
