Hi Guys and Dolls!


For my first tutorial with my new camera  I knew I had to do something special. I was a little iffy about doing a mask or something way over the top because I’m still adjusting to the new set up/camera/settings etc. Then I remembered I’d never shown you guys (and dolls) Batwing liner! Throw in some new eyeshadow palettes from Wet ‘n’ Wild & MAC and this look was born!

With eyes open it looks like traditional, if thick, winged eyeliner.

With eyes closed, it’s the Batwing express! Fun, Flirty, and Unexpected!

This look would be extra hot with false lashes!

I do want to let you guys know that this was shot with my new camera a Canon Rebel t2i, but not in HD- so if the video is AMAZING it’s because I didn’t have a class 6 (or higher) SD card, so I could only film at the lowest setting, 640×480, same as my old camera. Thankfully the pictures look much better than my old camera, and I just bought a proper card for filming 🙂

      Glad you like it, let us know how it turns out!

    Love it! These colors are awesome on you and the wing looks great. I still can’t get my liner to cooperate consistently. I’ll be on a roll for like a week and then like WHAM it’s as though I’ve never seen an eyeliner before in my life.

      I have times like that too. Liner on other people- I’ve got it. On myself, I have occasional issues!

    I love this!!!

    I actually do this shape a lot, because I have sort of hooded eyes. I can’t wait to see how you do it, because mine’s not nearly so sharp looking.

    Also, can’t wait to watch on your new camera (the same camera I’ve been wanting for a while! Time to trade in my rebel xt)

      I have slightly hooded eyes especially on the outer corner! I love heavy/kind of cartoonish liner, but with such shallow lid space it looks kinda goofy. This is the perfect kind of liner for us!

    Love this look and can’t wait to try it out. Those colors look so amazing together.

  8. February 23, 2011 / 10:22 pm

    The colour combination is gorgeous! This eyeliner shape will begreat for my eyes too, I do a less dramatic version for day wear. I have troublesome eyes that refuse to play ball sometimes. That’s the downside to having smaller eyes :(. Love this look though!

    The pics with the new camera really rock. Nice to see you starting to get the hang of it. It’s definitely a bit of a learning curb, I can only imagine with the filming bit. Love the look!

    Did you wet your brush with water, or was it something else?

    • vintageortacky

      I used Fix + by MAC (I think)

    Which shade from MAC could be used instead of the olive green shade you used on your eyelids( wet’n’wild pallete) ? Swimmining, seems to me a bit too yellowish and no sparkle… and bio green has been out of stock in UK for a while. Will go round the shops with the photo looking for the right shade…

    You are doing a great job! Love it!
    ps I left the same message on youtube… wasn’t sure where you go more often. Also loooooove the shamrock with false eyelashes!

      hm, perhaps Golden Olive Pigment and Humid Eyeshadow mixed?

      thank you so much 🙂

        Had a go with the golden olive. Would say it’s close enough I will need to practice a bit as I tend to go over the top with the fig and browns in the crease. The batwing is a bit of a challenge! It’s turning me into a goth instead of sexy sultry rockchick.;)

  23. April 17, 2011 / 3:29 pm

    I love it. It is so me I am a very colorful person. I need looks like this man lol

    I’ve been following you on youtube for a while now, but I feel like I should finally drop this comment here to let you know how awesome I think you are.

    Being a plus size girl, I could never find a way to express my individuality through my looks, but then I found your channel and it really inspired me. Since watching your tutorials, I’ve gained a lot more confidence in myself and my appearance.

    I just wanted to say thank you for that. =)

      I second that.
