The PUNKY BUTTERFL-EYE

Salut mes amis!

Hope you're all happy and healthy. Today's post is a lashes review + easy makeup look in one, and I created this one just in time for Halloween. I've been carelessly neglecting the fact that Halloween is heavily revolved around makeup, so the next few posts will be dedicated strictly to costume makeup for this grandiose occasion!! Today's maquillage is inspired by the awesome lashes sent to me by my friends at KKcenterHK and I call it: The Butterfly that Landed on My EyE ::flutter::flutter::
 Read more for the review + pix, deets, etc. :)

For this look, I used none other than KKcenterHK lashes number FE202 described as a pair of Green and Orange Plumes Pattern Round Feather Lashes (a mouthful indeed :) Here they are, packaged in a clear hard case (great for storage).
Price: $3.69
Includes: lashes, tray, hard case / box. Does not include lash adhesive.
Description: Dramatic, bright, bold feather false lashes to be used professionally or by any makeup enthusiast. These lashes are perfect for a dress-up party, carnival makeup, or Halloween.
Quality: As usual, I'm impressed with the quality of KKcenterHK's costume false lashes. The feathers are soft and light, therefore, they do not weigh heavy on the eye. The band of the lashes, although thick, is surprisingly flexible and is extremely easy to handle. The only drawback is that with lashes this delicate, one has to be very careful when removing them from the tray and even more careful when removing them from the eye. These lashes can be re-used if handled with care and caution.

NOW, On to the MAQUILLAGE!!!

Since these lashes are already very feminine and pretty, I wanted to wear them a bit differently. Traditionally, these lashes are to be worn on both eyes, with the feathers curving out, imitating natural lash growth. Instead, I decided the wear the pair on one eye, placed in such a way that the lashes curve inwards, as in the pic above. This way, the feathers look more like butterfly wings.
 Over the years, I've seen far too many butterfly costumes and makeup looks aiming at girly, glittery and symmetrical pretty. Today, I didn't want to go for pretty... I wanted my butterfly to be somewhat punky. Also, I really wanted to accent one eye, as I do with my nails when I create nail art... Accenting one feature is all the craze right now. Anyway, here I am, looking a little Annie Lennox & giving you my most androgynous stare possible :)
With so much drama on my butterfleye, balance must be made with my other eye :))) On the lips: NYX lip cream in Antwerp.
To create this look, simply apply the lashes facing inwards and fill in the gaps between your skin and the lashes with a black liquid or gel liner. Also, line your waterline with a waterproof black liner. Apply black liquid or gel liner to your other eye and extend the inner and outer wings. Line the waterline of your other eye with a white liner to make it appear slightly bigger.
Wrap yourself with a neon boa and you're ready for the "Carnaval"... Save this look for Rio, baby!!!

bisous,
