Halloween is an annual holiday, celebrated each year on October 31st that has roots in age-old European traditions. It originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts.
Over time, Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating and carving jack-o-lanterns. Around the world, as days grow shorter and nights get colder, people continue to usher in the season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats.
Halloween costumes are traditionally related to ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils. Black and Orange are the famous color for this day. The Jack-o-lantern is the festival light for Halloween. Pumpkin is a good substitute of the turnip, to be used as Jack-o-lantern.
Our love for eyeliner and its versatility knows no bounds, especially around Halloween, as it can be a key component to many costumes.
But for the Goth makeup mavens and those who love to get into the spirit of the haunted holiday, bat wing liner is quick (if you have a steady hand), simple, and an effective way to start the celebrations a little early.
Although Halloween is not an event celebrated in India, you’ll still find the occasional parties and kids trick or treating around various neighborhoods. And ofcourse, not to forget the crazy looks makeup artists like us come up with to give you some costume inspiration!
With Halloween right around the corner, we sought out the best bat wing on the blog. From subtle to shocking, there’s a lot you can do with this look.
In these looks we have primarily used the Anastasia Beverly Hills SUBCULTURE palette and black liner/kaajal. The looks take their inspiration from a Pumpkin which is the most sought after commodity during Halloween. And ofcourse, the BAT (as in the mammal)!
The first look is comparatively subtler with a crazy eyeliner inspired by the bat wing and colours on the eyes inspired by the pumpkin.

To turn up the dial on your wild side, we used the black kajal and tried to create a mask like look. The deep lipstick was smudged around the lips and pigment was added to round it off. This Halloween is all about showing the dark but fashionable side of you.
