If there’s one thing we adore more than a pigmented eyeshadow palette, it’s the adorable packaging and features.
Perfect Diary has outdone itself this time, creating a sparkly butterfly-shaped highlighter on top of one of the pressed shadows, allowing you to stamp adorable sparkly butterflies all over your face.
Before you add this palette to your cart, let’s take a look at what makes it a must-have in your vanity!
Perfect Diary Explorer Eyeshadow Palette in 14 Butterfly
The gorgeous packaging
Each palette contains 12 dreamy colours inspired by the butterfly.
With its ethereal lilac packaging and a magnificent shimmery butterfly on the case, the 14 Butterfly palette has truly propelled the Perfect Dairy Eyeshadow Palettes to global fame.
And the added bonus? It even includes a double-headed professional brush and a built-in mirror.
12 pigmented shades
The palette features a variety of blendable shades in matte, pearlised, soft, shimmering, and metallic finishes.
While the palette is based on purples and mauves, which are generally more suited to cool tones, there are still plenty of warm pinks and browns in the palette for those with warm complexion undertones to enjoy.
Even though the matte shades are beautiful and pigmented, the shimmer and glitter shades, such as Muse, Dreamland, and Sprite, really sold this palette because they captured the dreamy vibes perfectly.
Crystal Wing, a light green shimmer shade, adds a fun pop of colour to the otherwise pink, purple, and brown-dominated palette.
3 ways to wear the Perfect Diary Explorer Eyeshadow Palette in 14 Butterfly
Ethereal goddess eye look
This shimmery eye look will go great with a fancy dress, and you’ll be stealing hearts with your goddess-like appearance.
The butterfly stamp on the cheek completes the look, and while it looks quite complicated, it’s simple to recreate!
Step 1: Apply the skin-toned shade Flower Pistil all over your eyelids as a base colour.
Step 2: Apply Butterfly, a light purple shade, over your base colour to cool down the overall eye look.
Step 3: Using Fairy Purple, go over your eye line and outer corners to deepen the eye look and give your eyes more depth.
Step 4: Go over your aegyo-sal (under-eye area) with Fantasy and blend to create a seamless eye look.
Step 5: Then, lightly pat concealer all over the inner half of your upper eyelid. This serves as a foundation for the glittery shade that will be applied next.
Step 6: Apply Sprite over your concealer for glittery starry eyes, and also on your aegyo-sal to brighten up your under eyes.
Step 7: Once you’ve applied your eyeliner and falsies, your ethereal goddess eye look is complete!
Butterfly diva eye look
If the previous look wasn’t fancy enough for you, go full diva with this colourful eye look created by @clara.slays on TikTok.
This eye makeup’s creative winged look is so glamorous that you’ll be the star of any party you attend.
Step 1: First, dip your brush into the two purple shades, Butterfly and Fairy Purple, and apply them as your base colours.
Step 2: Using the mauve-y red shade, Mysterious, draw a larger triangle at the end of your upper eyelids and a smaller triangle on your lower eyelids. This will make it appear as if you have butterfly wings stuck to your eyes.
Step 3: Next, apply Crystal Wing to your inner corners, extending them slightly onto your upper eyelids.
Step 4: Finally, apply Sprite to your aegyo-sal to brighten up your under eyes. To complete the look, draw on your winged liner and add some dots to your eyes to mimic the patterns of a butterfly wing.
