All About Eyes - The Double Flick

Products Used:
MAC Paint Pot - Soft Ochre
MAC Eyeshadow - Naked Lunch & Tempting
MAC Fluidline - Blacktrack
Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner - Black
L'oréal Voluminous Mascra

I can't even begin to tell you how much grief this particular look gave me.

First of all, I've seen both Michelle Phan and Jessica of Picturesque Makeup do double flick looks and I decided to try it out myself. However, this look wasn't as simple for me as it was for them and I think it all boils down to the product you use. I hesitate to say this, but I've had my Blacktrack Fluidline for... A while. Let's just leave it at that, shall we?

For the most part, it still applies very well. However, I notice that it tends to leave gaps when you're doing stronger looks. So, I need to go over those gaps with some matte black eyeshadow. I filled in the gaps in my eyebrows as well. Speaking of eyebrows, I've had a few people ask what I do with them (if I get them threaded, etc). Actually, I've been plucking my own eyebrows since I was a teenager. As you can see in the photos above, the eyebrow area isn't always clean :p.

Anyway, Naked Lunch and Tempting were layered on top of each other before applying the liner to create the double flick. Along with Blacktrack, I also used a Revlon Colorstay liquid liner to make a finer point and to clean the edges. I also applied some white liner between the two flicks to make it more pronounced. 

As for the flick, I will leave you with Michelle and Jessica's tutorials since you will learn how to do it better by watching them than by reading what I have to say about it.

Hope you guys like it!

Have you ever rocked a double flick?


  1. very cool look! i can see how this could be a difficult look to do but you did it very well


  2. looks good! winged eyeliner is too difficult for me! hah.

  3. @Roxy - thanks so much :)

    @Kaitlyn - it is for me, too! that's why i rarely do it :p

  4. You go girl! Hey, the double flick is not easy and you're right it totally depends on the product. Plus, it's hard getting it symmetrical but you totally rocked it! If I have to do a look like this I usually use a powder or pencil in black as my "guideline" then I take a liquid or gel-based liner and go over top. Saves time and less mess. :)

  5. @Make-up Junkie - thanks for the tip! i'll make sure to do that next time :)
