Winged eyeliner just isn't what it used to be anymore. While some of us still launch into full panic overdrive at the thought of the “perfect winged liner”, a more dextrous bunch are turning it into all sorts; from glowing neon flicks to today’s full-on butterfly wing.
Butterfly winged liner has infiltrated our feeds like no other, providing the most literal, yet most intricate take on the classic wing and it’s truly giving us the flutters (sorry). Be forewarned: it’s not easy. It’s may not be for every day. But it does look seriously impressive.
Applying eyeshadow below the flick of their liner and shaping it into a wing, Instagram MUAs are making it look as though they’ve glued literal butterfly wings onto their eyes. (Of course, no actual butterflies are harmed in the process, in case you were wondering).
