TUTORIAL: BUTTERFLY MAKEUP FOR GIRLS
How to do butterfly eye makeup for young girls? Like many children, Cheindel and Raphael love costumes. They never miss an opportunity to slip into the shoes of a pirate, an Indian, or more simply, a princess. Thanks to the generosity of their young aunt, they now have a nice collection of costumes at home. It happens a few times that I invite myself to their children’s games by making them up. I’m not very good but with a little color and a lot of love, it is not too difficult to meet the expectations of our two treasures.
As the carnival approaches, and in collaboration with Giotto, I invite you to discover the Papillon kit from the Giotto makeup range. The big advantage of this makeup is that with a simple wet washcloth, everything is erased, as if by magic. This weekend, I had fun revisiting the makeup of the famous moth to the delight of my little girl. The result is cute.
Here is a quick tutorial that will allow you to reproduce this butterfly makeup easily and simply.
The Butterfly Giotto makeup kit is composed of three eye shadows (white, gray, and purple) applied with a fine brush or a small sponge (not supplied) and a little water. The colors are soft and bright with silky texture easy to apply. Everything goes very easily into the water.
1 – Using a slightly damp brush (or sponge) and white eye shadow, draw two solid circles at your child’s eye level. Remember to integrate the eyebrows into your makeup. If you have put too much water in your brush/sponge, the result may not be visible enough. Do not hesitate to apply a second coat of white to obtain a more opaque shade.
Paint three dots in white between the two eyes.
2 – With the gray eye shadow, draw two silver petals at the corner of each eye. A petal starting from the top of the eye and another from the bottom of the eye. Stretch makeup well. Once again, apply one or two more layers of makeup if the color is not visible enough for your taste (or that of your child).
3 – Make the silver petals bigger with purple eye shadow. Go to the ends of your child’s face then, using a small sponge, work your white/silver/purple gradient so that the colors blend well.
Paint three purple dots next to/on the white dots between the eyes.
4 – Trace the antennae and the outline of the butterfly with a black Giotto make up makeup/eye shadow pencil (not supplied in the kit). Add a few touches of white here and there for an even more wonderful result.
A touch of lipstick and your makeup is ready ..!
