Style Your Eye Makeup Like a Butterfly's Wings

Butterfly Inspired Makeup
They don't call them butterfly kisses for nothing. Long, fluttery eyelashes are not only fun for tickling another person's cheeks, they add drama your eye makeup and call to mind Mother Nature's little winged beauties. You can find plenty of eye makeup inspiration in the colors on a butterfly's wing for spring. The monarch, for example, flaunts a stunning pair of black and orange wings, a look that you can interpret as your own with strips of fluttery black eyelashes, tangerine eye shadow (applied to the eyelid) and a hint of gold shadow (applied to the brow bone). Here are a few more butterfly-inspired makeup ideas that are both fearless and flirty. Try on butterfly makeup in our virtual makeup studio.

The color combinations on a butterfly's wings offer plenty of inspiration for pairing eye shadows. Unexpected combinations, such as plum and olive green, can look gorgeous on green eyes. Blue eyes look stunning in lemon yellows and golds, apricots and coppers. Brown-eyed gals look striking in midnight blue and shimmery charcoal.

Take a closer look at a butterfly and you’ll see the glorious texture and graphic details (think symmetrical dots and dashes) on those little wings. Mimic the texture of a butterfly’s wing with a shimmery, velvet-textured eye shadow and copy the details of the wing using a sharpened, slim pencil eye liner. Create a look that's ideal for a costume party or celebratory evening out when you paint a succession of small dots around one eye, in a heart or star-shaped formation.

Paint your lashes with colored mascara or line your eyes with in the same shades as you seen on a butterfly. You can easily turn your favorite powder eye shadows into uniquely colored eye liners by dipping a flat, smooth eyeliner brush in water before applying them to your lashline. Think lavender eye shadow liner on the lower lashline and baby pink on the upper, or any daring combination you desire.
