Butterfly ??? used @limecrimemakeup velvetines in #thistle and #squash as well as the @wetnwildbeauty liquid liners in black and white. I mapped out the black outline, filled in the gradient colors where I wanted them to be and then darkened the black lines and added white liquid liner for the dots overtop. I then added glitter with glitter glue in the corresponding color sections. #butterfly #butterflymakeup #sfx #halloweenmakeup #limecrime #featuremymakeupart #underratedmakeupbabes
Want to hang onto summer for just a little bit longer? Are you not quite ready for pumpkin spice everything and cozy knits? Then you’re going to want to try the butterfly eye makeup trend.
Makeup artists are going way beyond your standard cat eye flick and decorating their eyes with butterfly-inspired makeup using a combination of black eyeliner, pigments, eyeshadows, face paint and sometimes a bit of glitter.
Monarchs are one of the most popular sources of inspiration, but any butterfly works from skippers to lycaenidaes to even cartoon ones.
Makeup artists are also getting creative with the placement and shape of butterflies. Some are choosing to create a full butterfly on each of their eyes while others are drawing on supersized versions that extend down their cheeks. Then there are some people who are putting a butterfly wing on each eye to create a “butterfly flick” as opposed to a cat eye one.
And if you want to take the look into fall, you can always try it with more autumnal shades like gold, red and pumpkin spice, of course. Don’t forget that it would also be a brilliant look for Halloween.
