Dua Lipa has always centred her aesthetic around butterflies—from clips and pendants to butterfly-shaped tops, the singer has debuted the symbol in multiple carousels on Instagram. And the latest entrant? We're calling it - butterfly lashes. You'll know why—and how to recreate the fluttery look with the stroke of a wand. Quite literally.
What’s the butterfly lashes trend all about?
In a recent photo dump on Instagram, the singer is seen complementing her ensemble with a pendant in the shape of a butterfly...and lashes that look like they're close to fluttering away. Literally.
What sets the look apart? It's how the lashes are fanned out in either direction from the centre rather than being sloped. The top and bottom lashes are extremely elongated, and there are no clumps at all. This plays into the illusion of bigger eyes. A minimalistic look, this one works best without too much eyeliner or eyeshadow.
How to get butterfly lashes
All you need to perfect this look is a volumising inducing mascara like the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volumizing Mascara. A triple-duty product, this one curls, volumises and lengthens your lashes instantly. Like Dua, you can brush your brows just a little—remember not to fill them in. Natural-looking brows pair well with this look. Dust a rose-tinted blush on your cheeks to lend a natural flush to them, and paint your lips a shade of brown to complete the look. We love how this fits right into the skinimalism trend—soft, fluttery lashes, rosy cheeks, and a fresh, healthy glow. Nothing is overdone, and that's why it's such a coveted look.
