Butterfly Eye Makeup Will Give Your Winged Liner a Metamorphosis

The butterfly eye makeup that's been taking over Instagram explore pages lately is probably one of the more intricate and literal takes I've seen on winged liner as of late.

Winged eyeliner just isn't what it used to be anymore. Simple, precise points are so, as Hilary Duff would say, yesterday. Pat McGrath is rounding it out. Another MUA created an inverted version that made brains melt everywhere. And others on Instagram are turning their winged liner into actual butterfly wings. The butterfly eye makeup that's been taking over Instagram explore pages lately is probably one of the more intricate and literal takes I've seen on winged liner as of late. Makeup artists are painting on liner and eye shadow to look like they glued a butterfly wing onto their eyelids. (Of course, no actual butterflies are harmed in the process, in case you were wondering.) The result is gorgeous and reminds me of my days of visiting a butterfly garden in South Florida when I was a kid.

Even though butterfly eye makeup looks like you need the artistic skills of Picasso, you only really need to know how to do winged liner. Start off by covering your lid in a brightly colored shadow. You could either brush on one shade or blend two or three together. Then, draw on winged liner as you typically would with black liquid liner — lining along your lashlines before winging it outward toward the tails of your brows.

Next, paint on arcs along your crease that connect to the winged liner. Then, create vertical lines that connect the meeting points of the arcs to the line along your lashline. From there, you can etch little white dots to add to the realism of the butterfly eye makeup. Pretty easy, right? Sure, it takes a bit more time than simple winged liner, but the end result looks a lot more impressive than the actual work you put it in.
