This ingenious tool will ensure your eyeliner looks flawless

Ever dreamed of a crisp, clean liner flick that will transform you into Lana Del Rey in the blink of an eye? Well, armed with brilliant new tool {The Vamp Stamp} you can wave goodbye to squiggly brush strokes or messing about with masking tape. It allows you to stamp on an immaculate liner look with minimal hassle, to give you MUA-worthy make up in a matter of minutes.

The creation of Veronica Lorenz – one of the brains behind the legendary {Beautyblender} – she developed this trick after becoming ill and losing feeling in her fingers, so she needed something that could recreate an expertly hand-drawn line. The {VaVaVoom Stamp} is ideal for absolute beginners or anyone lacking the required dexterity to boss a Twiggy-esque cat eye.

So how does it work? Dipped into the {VINK} or your preferred pot of eyeliner (or brushed with your favourite liquid formula), this allows you to literally ‘stamp’ a liner tail at the corner of each eye – no painstaking brushwork required! Then simply use your normal eyeliner (in the same colour) to draw along the lashline and disguise any gaps.

Available in three sizes, for larger-than-life ‘wings’ à la Winehouse, or a subtler Audrey Hepburn feline flick, check out The Vamp Stamp’s {Instagram} feed where several super-fans show you how they sport it (tip: you can even place the stamp a little lower down the eye and connect it with your lower liner for a graphic, statement look.)

So, for anyone who considers winged eyeliner to be as essential as a statement red lipstick, this is a stroke (or should we say, stamp) of genius.
