Today, it's my mom's birthday, and because of that, I wanted to do something special. My mom is the greatest mom in the world, so she deserves something special :) She absolutely adores butterflies, so I thought it would be fun to recreate one of her favourites, the Papilio Machaon (also known as a common swallowtail), with makeup.
I used the Hema eyeshadowbase on the side of my eye, to make sure the eyeshadow would stay put and show up on cam. Then I used the Barry M kohlpencil to draw the baseform of the butterfly. I also made a little line above my eye, that ended in the butterflywing.
Then I started filling it in with the yellow Gosh eyeshadow. This one didn't hold well on cam, so later on I added some yellow from the Sunset Sleek palette.
I used the blue from the Sunset palette aswell. Same with the small dot of red on the bottom.
Then I added the Catrice lashes with the silver butterflies and the little line below my eye.
I used the Born pretty store nail art stones, to add some bling to the look. I also used it for the red dot, to make it pop out more. I liked the effect so much, that I did the same with the yellow pieces on the side.
After taking some pics, I decided to add some Sugarpill Starling to the blue areas to give it some more bling.
I also added some Sugarpill Stella, to give it some extra sparkles in the black spots.
Finally, I re-drew the outlines with Gosh Black Ink, because the kohlpencil wasn't dark enough for the pics.
So, what do you think?
I posted a little sneak preview of this look a while ago, when I just did it, and Kashmira liked it so much, she did her own version of it. Check that one out HERE.
