With summer in full swing, we’re all suddenly hit with the urge to switch things up. While most of us may be tempted to chop off our hair, the latest beauty trend that’s doing the rounds is a lot less permanent. Swap your regular black eyeliner for some butterfly-inspired eye makeup. Now, you don’t have to be a pro to nail this trend but you sure have to make sure you stock up on some colourful eyeliner and…a ton of patience! If you’re stuck in a beauty rut, you have to try this Instagram-famous butterfly eyeliner look STAT!
This look requires some serious winging skills but the best part is that you don’t have to be too precise. If you are a beginner, make sure you use a fine felt tip eyeliner instead of opting for a liquid liner. Once you have the basic black structure of the wings in place, the possibilities are endless. Go in for one pastel shade like @cutcreaser or add more colours to your dreamy butterfly makeup look!
Is it just me or does @anaellepostollec’s eye makeup look like literal magic? When it comes to this butterfly-inspired beauty trend, feel free to mix and match and opt for shades and textures you wouldn’t reach out for. Orange with sky blue and some iridescent colours to top it off? Sign us up! To get the look, make sure you’re blending your eyeshadow upwards on your top lids and downwards on your bottom lid. This will open up your eyes and give it the butterfly wings look we’re aiming for.
This ombre eyeliner scream summer and all thing pretty, right? To get the look, simply begin by using one pastel shade in the inner corner and till half of your crease. Then use the second shade to complete the wing to the outer corner of your eyes. Voila! You’ve officially jumped on the butterfly makeup trend bandwagon.
If you thought the OTT factor of the butterfly makeup trends ends with just drawing wings, you’ve got another thing coming! Feel free to bring out all the sparkle and shine formulas in your makeup bag and layer them up on your lids. This look by beauty influencer Rowi Singh is inspired by singer Dua Lipa’s outfit and makeup at the 2021 Grammys. We love! Begin by drawing the wings using a metallic eyeliner and then using some lash or glitter glue, load up on glitter. To complete the look, stick some rhinestones around your peepers.
BRB, we’re just going to wing this trend!
