So pretty.

Summer is coming and that means one thing - festival season is almost here. And after three years of missing out thanks to Covid, we're going all out this year and that means trying out a bunch of new looks.

Butterflies were a recurring theme in '00s fashion and the motif is having a huge resurgence - from butterfly clips to butterfly bra tops. Next up: butterfly liner.

There's so many different ways to try the fluttery trend and you can keep it subtle or go extra. Whatever your vibe, there's a way to make it work for you.

And the different colours of actual butterflies mean you can play around with a vast array of shades from vibrant pinks to deep blues.

Celebrities like Dua Lipa and Hailey Bieber have already tried the look out and while might seem complicated, it's actually not that hard. Because of its versatility, there's no one way to do it. Plus there are lots of simple tutorials on YouTube and TikTok to follow.

Start with drawing an elongated winged cat eye with liquid or gel liner, rounding it out on the bottom to mimic the shape of a wing.

Once you've perfected the base, you can go in and add any colours or patterns you like, topping it all off by adding some white dots along the outline. Finish the look by adding some highlighter or a shimmery shade to your inner corners.

So stunning.
