♕ Halloween 2017 ♕ Bat Wing Eyeliner ♕
{Feat. Glitter Palace}

I've just realized Halloween is only 11 days away - so I decided to put the other looks waiting in the drafts on hold and to go ahead with the Halloween series. I've done only one look so far - aka this one (apart from the Disney Villains looks which are kind of an Instagram exclusive as of now) - but I thought it was better to start right away! Also because next week I'm going to post only hauls probably (the Sugarpill one and the NABLA one). So without any further ado, let's get started!

This year's Halloween series will feature Glitter Palace's Halloween Collection* and also the new That's the Point* eyeliners by NYX Professional Makeup - which I received just recently! As you can imagine, the glitters are all fit for Halloween - while the eyeliners, with their different tip sizes and shapes, are perfect to design and draw basically everything.
I plan to do as many makeup looks as I can using all of these products... So I have to run, time flies! *tick tock*


The main inspiration for this look is, once again, Swayze Morgan (@swayzemorgan on Instagram - check her out if you haven't already!), who created an intense Halloween look featuring a dramatic bat wing eyeliner one month ago or so... And I've been wanting to try it since then! *-* To achieve this particular design, I used both the Epic Ink Liner (for the sharp edges) and one of the new That's the Point liners - in this case, I chose Put a Wing on It* (it has a big pointed tip, quite stiff, perfect for any kind of dramatic winged line).

As for the glitters, I chose the orange ones - Chucky*, which is a mix of medium orange hexagons, tiny black hexagons, fine orange glitters and even glow in the dark hexagons, with a pinch of neon orange strands. In one word: bomb! *___*


After priming my lids I started off by applying Suburbia eyeshadow by Sugarpill - a matte coral - on the crease, outer corner and lower lid. On my lids (both upper and lower) I applied Flamepoint by Sugarpill - which is a bright matte orange that screams Halloween XD I blended it with Suburbia to create a soft transition (easier done than said, Sugarpill eyeshadow are so incredibly blendeable, it's unreal *____*).
On my inner corner I used Clementine, a shimmery orange that goes so well with Flamepoint; on my brow bone I applied Antique White eyeshadow - which I used also as transition shade this time - and I defined my lower lashline using Nocturne (all shadows by NABLA Cosmetics). 

As usual, before applying the glitter I did the eyeliner design. This time I used two different eyeliners, both by NYX Professional Makeup: I applied the Epic Ink Liner* on my lid, then I went on using Put a Wing on It* (from the That's the Point range) to draw the big, outer wing. Then I used the Epic Ink Liner to add the details of the wing - aka the 'spikes' and sharp edges.
Once I was done and happy with the bat wing design (which took me a while), I applied the glitters: I used Chucky* loose glitters by Glitter Palace and I applied them on both my upper and lower lids (I used my lash glue to make it stick to my skin).
At this point the look was almost complete: I applied some dramatic eyelashes (Double Up lashes n° 201 by Ardell Beauty), mascara, and the usual black eyepencil on my waterline... And I was 100% done!
