Violet and blue smoky eye
This isn’t a butterfly makeup look. It’s just that the blue reminds me of butterflies’ wings. The makeup itself is a standard smoky cat-eye that is flattering on most eye shapes, and the lips and cheeks are kept a pale luminous pink to stand up to the strong, matte eyes.
Step 1: Apply a good base on your lids, and then pack on a strong matte blue shadow on the inner half of upper lids, and along the inner half of the lower lashes as well.
Step 2: Repeat with a strong, matte purple on the outer halves.
Step 3: Important step. Smoke the edges out into a smoky wing, past the outer corners of the eyes.
Step 4: Add definition by packing a matte black along the upper lash line as liner.
Step 5: Apply black mascara on top and bottom lashes to finish the eye look.
On the rest of the face:
- Use a soft eyeshadow blending brush to apply pale pink shimmer to the brow bones and cheekbones, then apply a pink blush normally. I used MAC Porcelain Pink for highlights and NYX Pinky on the cheeks
- Apply a pale baby pink lipstick lightly (Barry M Baby Pink #100), and top with an opalescent pink gloss (MAC Cha Cha Lipglass)
