If you are not confident in your makeup skills and still want a fairy-wing look, then I have the hack for you. You just need a temporary butterfly tattoo. Place the tattoo on the outer corner of your eye, wet it with a damp towel, remove it, and voila, you have intricate wings on your eyes. Add some final touches with rhinestones, and you are ready to fly all night.
