very stand-out makeup for events, partys and photo shoots :)
First thing, let's be honest here, I do NOT claim the idea of this makeup to be mine! I've seen it on YouTube, but I wanted to share! :)

When I first saw this I was all like "So this is VERY pretty, but a) it's never going to work for me and b) I wouldn't know when to wear it. Well, obviously, I was wrong on both, I did it for a shooting with the ever-so-amazing Alina K. (https://www.facebook.com/pages/FotoAlina/184312604947823) and it turned out GREAT!

Sorry, no step-by-step images. Should have taken some. :(

  • How to makeover your eyelashes. Butterfly Makeup - Step 1
    Step 1

    Create a template of butterfly wings, make sure the size is about right and you have seperate upper and lower wing parts.

    Either just print them out and blacken the backside of the paper with any given marker/pen. Paper makes this really light and easy to work with, but you may not be able to reuse them.
    Or use thin black cardboard, they get heavier and sturdier.

  • Step 2

    Cut your wings out using an exacto knife or anything else you find usefull.

  • Step 3

    Optional: You could try and curl the wings a tiny little bit, just to make sure they won't touch your face all the time. I bended the inner tips upward a little.

  • How to makeover your eyelashes. Butterfly Makeup - Step 4
    Step 4

    Apply your desired makeup. Either go for dramatic black and blue glamour or - which is what I did - apply light, soft colours with a shimmer.

    I also used black liquid liner to create my usual eyeliner routine, and I also added a thin, jerky, squiggly ( would not know how to describe it otherwise ) line going upwards from the outer third of my lid. Obviously. Aaand I added tiny dots. Because I love dots. ;)

  • How to makeover your eyelashes. Butterfly Makeup - Step 5
    Step 5

    Get your lash glue and glue the inner tip of the upper wing to your upper lid, close to the lashline. Hold them in place untill your glue has dried.

    Place the lower wing tip just below the outer edge of your lower lashline.
    Sorry for the crappy image. :D

  • How to makeover your eyelashes. Butterfly Makeup - Step 6
    Step 6

    Basically you're done now. Of course this will feel a little weird at first and you should make sure your don't wipe your face by accident or get your hair all tangled with the wings.

    But there's one more thing I'd suggest: Get in front of a mirror and blink! Just blink. And look what happens. <3

From the main picture I thought you had painted it on, which I found really cool. But moving wings are even cooler!
