What Kind of Butterfly Am I?

Digital Angel asks us "What Kind Of Butterfly Are You?" So I thought of shooting 2 birds in one stone.

I planned on doing my version of a "butterfly" look and use the 78pcs palette she gave me! Thanks again for the palette, I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
Here's my inspiration

Let me do a diagram first

Products Used ---

1. 78pcs Palette's Green (inner corner of the eye - up and down)

2. 78pcs Palette's Shimmery Yellow (middle area of the eye)

3. 78pcs Palette's Dark Brown (outer v, blend blend blend)

4. Shimmery white (sorry forgot to take a shot) - as highlighter
Not shown on diagram ---
  • Stila Smudgepots in Black
  • Paul & Joe Curly Mascara in Black

And here's my version of a "Green, Yellow and Brown" Butterfly

Side by Side comparison :)

I honestly enjoy doing inspiration looks!
I enjoyed using my 78pcs palette!
I want to thank my readers who have "Cyber Hugged" me!

    Vi Anne, aawww...I guess that's how good it feels to have someone having a "girl crush" on that how Actresses feel? LOL (dream on Nikki, Dream on) I hope your skin gets better!

    Lydia, go go go! It is fun! I was looking at the photo each and every step! LOL If the photo can talk, it'll go "STOP STARING AT ME!"

  9. wow. I gotta give you credit for coming up with very catching title, twin! For a second, I thought you meant a real butterfly name for you...but uh...LOL...the colors does match the butterfly though. Great job!

  10. Hi Twin, thanks for loving the "butterfly" inspiration look. I'd love to get the credit but it all came from Nabi of Digital Angel. She challenged us with the question of "What Kind of Butterfly Are you?" so..the credit is hers..but can I take credit for "not taking the credit?" lol How have you been Cinthia!!!!!???? It's funny how when I met up with Bloggers here in Manila, they knew about me being the Evil twin against you :( Not good to be known for that right ?

    I have dark brown hair and light brown eyes, and I am wearing a dress with purple black and white prints...

  27. Nadine, try at :) I believe they have it :)

    Steph, it is ok, but it really depends on the intensity, you can do the same one as I did but do not go darker! But you know what? I believe whatever you do on your makeup, you'll look great as I'm sure you'll be super happy and it'll exude in your aura :) Congratulations in advance on your graduation!
