The votes are in: butterflies are the biggest trend in beauty right now. Butterfly airbrushing was seen on so many makeup artists pages that it was the subject of a trend piece in Allure at the start of quarantine, and even Bella Hadid tried her hand at the look recently. This trend is going absolutely nowhere soon, and there are several different ways to try it, as seen in the reviews by some of our talented community members below.
Don't forget to read until the end and enter the challenge!
Here are 3 ways that you can wear the butterfly beauty trend:
1. Butterflies in your hair
You know those plastic, fabric, or feathered butterflies that you can find in a garden or glued to the wall of a kids' bedroom—who would have thought that they can also be used to zhuzh up your beauty look? Jaleesa Jaikaran, makeup artist and Supergreater-extraordinaire knew. But she always does.
As seen on JaleesaJaikaran:
"I started the series during quarantine. It was my way to celebrate the season despite the circumstances," she says. "Because I wasn't going outside at all, I wanted to find a way to encapsulate the season with color and creativity."
And then re-imagined by VanzillaScott:
"I'm always really inspired by what Jaleesa does," she says. "She just has this way of always making makeup and beauty fun and colorful. Every time I see she's made a new review, I know something exciting is going to happen."
2. Butterflies on your lids
I tried this one out myself, and the results were better than I could have imagined. Watch my review below, along with other Supergreaters who tried it using their favorite eyeshadow palettes and liners.
3. Butterflies on your face
As seen on Sabletoothtigre:
"It was super fun to do and it reminded me that if you have lash glue… you can put anything on your face," she says. "Makeup doesn’t have to just be 2D. Imagine the possibilities!"
