One can be inspired for a makeup design from almost anywhere; including a piece of wardrobe, this is the case for our tutorial. During a search for interesting wardrobe accessories, I came across these beautiful costume wings. Immediately I knew there was a makeup design waiting to be drawn out of them. As I sketched ideas, the door began to open for the wardrobe options. This entire process has transformed our model into the Asian Butterfly.
*Take note how the detail lines of our makeup mimic those of the wings.
Step 1: Secure hair back from face. Using the white and damp hydra sponge, cover entire face, ears and neck area that will not be hidden by wardrobe. *For the full-face coverage, I like to mist the white cake with water and collect paint on to the hydra sponge.
Step 2. Wet the medium brush and load with a generous amount of black, start at inside of eye and paint a line over the eyelash extending just past the eye line.
Step 3. Continue with a black line on the lower eyelash line connecting at the edge with the top line.
Step 4. Using the medium brush and black paint create the lines over the eyebrow.
Step 5. The lines on the side of the face represent the curves of the butterfly wing, you can modify this to suit your preference. We are still using the black and medium brush.
Step 6. Next are the lines between the eyebrows, these should give the appearance of antennae.
Step 7. Add black accent dots above eyebrow lines.
Step 8. Line the lips with black using your medium brush.
Step 9. Highlight the cheekbones with the Ben Nye powder; use the contour brush as the applicator.
Step 10. Add in accent dots to the curved lines side of the face.
Step 11. Place a self-adhesive gem between the antennae lines, I chose a round silver gem.
Step 12. Cover entire face with glitter dust.
The makeup portion is finished, add in the wardrobe and your transformation is complete.
