As the name implies, bat wing eyeliner is a specific type of makeup look, which uses the line of your eyeliner like the wings of a bat, to give your eyes that dramatic pop of color. Bat Wing Eyeliner can be used in a variety of ways, from simple and subtle to bold and intense. It can be a great way to add a little extra drama to your everyday makeup looks, or even as a prop to complete a costume. Let’s take a look at the different types of Bat Wing Eyeliner and the best ways to apply it.
What is Bat Wing Eyeliner?
Bat wing eyeliner is a look that starts with a winged, drawn-on line of eyeliner that extends to the outer corner of your eye. Like many other variations of winged eyeliner, the details of bat wing eyeliner can vary somewhat, but they often all have one thing in common: the winged line is extended to the outer corner of your eye.
How to Apply Bat Wing Eyeliner
There are a variety of methods you can use to apply bat wing eyeliner. For example, you can draw a winged line with a liquid eyeliner first, then fill in the wings with a brush. You can also use stippling brushes to apply the thick line of color. The best way to apply a winged liner is to first outline your upper lash line with a liquid liner and then fill in the wings with a brush. Depending on how extreme you want your wings to be, you can also try adding a bit of glitter to the liner before applying with a brush.
Types of Bat Wing Eyeliner
1. Soft Baked Bat Wing Eyeliner
As the name implies, soft-baked bat wing eyeliner has a baked-on finish, which is less intense than a natural baked look. This is the type of baked look that is commonly found in liquid eyeliners.
2. Natural Baked Bat Wing Eyeliner
3. Sharp Baked Bat Wing Eyeliner
Sharp baked bat wing eyeliner is similar to natural baked bat wing eyeliner, but the line is sharper and more defined.
Different ways you can wear your Bat Wing Eyeliner
A single-color bat wing eyeliner is a great way to add a pop of color to your everyday makeup looks, especially if you like to go for more neutral looks. One way to accessorize a makeup look with a single-color Bat Wing Eyeliner is to pair it with a similar shade of lipstick, or even a contrasting one. You can also pair your bat wing eyeliner with other red makeup looks such as red lips and red eyes, or even a red blush. If your go-to makeup look is a Smokey eye, you can easily add a pop of color with a single, shade of blue or violet. You can also pair the color with other blue eye makeup looks, such as blues or purples in your eyeliner, or your eyeshadow palette.
Tips for perfect Bat Wing Eyeliner application
- Don’t Draw Too Thin: Draw a line that’s only slightly thicker than your usual eyeliner line. Keep in mind that the line of your eyeliner should be thicker on your upper lash line, where it will meet with your wing, and on your lower lash line, where it will end.
- Don’t Fill It in Too Much: When drawing your wing, don’t go overboard with the pencil and try to fill in the wing completely. Instead, try to draw a wing line that extends to the outer corner of your eye, so that you can still see part of your natural eyelid.
- Don’t Draw Too Close to Your Eyelashes: Make sure to leave a couple of millimeters of space between the tip of your eyeliner and your eyelashes, or the line will end up looking messy.
- Don’t Put on too Many layers: When you apply your wing, don’t try to put on too many layers of the liner, or you risk smudging your natural eyeliner.
- Don’t Use a Waterproof Eyeliner: It’s important to use a non-waterproof liquid liner when applying bat wing eyeliner because you don’t want the line to be too thick, or waterproof.
