Step 1: Use tape
Jackie’s first step in creating the perfect wing is to use tape — yes, you heard right! Using tape under the eyes is the secret to creating the defined eyeliner look. Place the tape underneath the outer corner of your eye and angle it as you wish. Make sure that the tape sits evenly on both eyes to get a uniform result.
Step 2: Make two dots
In the next step, you need to bring out your eyeliner and make a small dot on your upper lash line, where the eyeliner will be the thickest. Then make another dot where the eyeliner should end. The dots will guide you where to apply eyeliner.
Tip: Raise your chin
Then lift your chin and look down when applying eyeliner to prevent the applicator from coming into contact with the lashes. To create a defined wing, Jackie recommends using an eyeliner that has a pointed and thin felt applicator similar to Xlash Eyeliner.
Step 3: Work vertically
The fourth step is to take out your eyeliner! Remember to work in a vertical direction and meet the point when applying eyeliner.
Step 4: Connect the dots
The next step is to bring the dots together! Start by applying the eyeliner from the starting point (the dot on the upper lash line) and paint gently to the end point, where the wing should end. Repeat the step on the other eye.
Then remove the tape and voilà — now you have a sharp and perfect wing! If the result is uneven, you can always use a dry cotton swab or a little concealer to fix the wing.

HOW TO APPLY XLASH EYELASH SERUM
Not sure how to apply Xlash Eyelash Serum? No problem, it only takes 30 seconds and Xlash Cosmetics shows you how to do it in a simple step-by-step guide. Check out the video below!
STEP 1: WASH YOUR FACE
The first step before applying Xlash Eyelash Serum is to remove your makeup using a makeup remover, followed by a gentle facial cleanser to remove any makeup residue and impurities.
If you wear contact lenses, Xlash Cosmetics recommends that you remove them to prevent the eyelash serum from coming into contact with them and causing irritation.
STEP 2: OPENING CAREFULLY
Carefully open the Xlash eyelash serum.
STEP 3: APPLYING ALONG THE LASH LINE
The next step is to apply a thin layer of Xlash eyelash serum at the bottom of the upper lash line, right next to the lash roots so that the thin eyelash serum applicator can get to every lash.
We recommend that the application of the eyelash serum takes place just before bedtime so that the serum on the eyelashes has time to be absorbed.
STEP 4: REPEAT EVERY EVENING
Repeat the above steps once a day for at least 28 days to achieve naturally long eyelashes. After about six weeks or when you have achieved the desired result, applying Xlash 2-3 times a week will be enough to maintain the length.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN XLASH AND XLASH PRO EYELASH SERUM
Xlash PRO Eyelash Serum has the same formula as the best-selling Xlash Eyelash Serum. The difference between the two products is the size: Xlash PRO is twice the size and contains 6 ml, while Xlash is in a smaller size and contains 3 ml.
A pack of Xlash lasts for about 2-3 months and is perfect if you’re considering starting to use eyelash serum. Xlash PRO is optimal for long-term use because it contains twice as much product as Xlash and lasts for about 5-6 months.
