Beauty How-Tos: Butterfly Lashes

If you’re not focused on making your lashes look amazing, then where have you been?! Beautiful butterfly lashes via falsies or great mascara takes your make-up look to a whole new level. Butterfly lashes are the most popular lash style that you’ll probably ever see. Some argue that the look only comes from using specific mascara or eye lash serum, but that’s not true!

If you want to maximize your lashes with falsies, check out the Beauty How-Tos: Lush Lashes article. If you’re looking to make the most of your natural lashes, continue reading! The CGS Team is sharing a few quick steps to help you achieve gorgeous butterfly lashes.

Step #1

Fortunately, it doesn’t matter what brand of mascara you use to help achieve the butterfly lash look. To be honest, the secret is all in the brush, the eyebrow brush that is! To acquire the butterfly lash look, it’s important to brush your natural lashes with a brow brush before applying mascara. This helps separate your lashes and prevents any lashes sticking together. Butterfly lashes aren’t achieved with clumpy lashes!

Step #2

Apply the mascara of your choice to your lashes. We prefer L’Oréal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara or Maybelline Falsies Push Up Drama. Start from the upper, outer corner of your lashes and work your way to the center. When applying the mascara, brush your lashes outward by curving your wrist counterclockwise.

Step #3

As you begin to work your way to your inner lashes, avoid adding too much product. Two pumps of your mascara should provide the right amount of coverage, without the clumps. The trick to achieving butterfly lashes is to add more mascara to the outer lashes and less to the inner, this should happen naturally as you apply the first of the product on the outer corner.


Achieving the butterfly lash look doesn’t require a lot of skill, just a little bit of know-how! Also, certain mascara products work better for some people rather than others. Definitely test out different brands to find the mascara that works best for your lashes. How do you style your lashes? What is your go-to mascara product? Do you prefer false lashes?
