Backstage at Libertine we caught up with butter LONDON’s Global Colour Ambassador, Katie Jane Hughes. This is one busy lady, Hughes served as the lead makeup artist and manicurist, creating the looks the show.
The Scoop: Pretty with an edge; the collection was a collage of colours, fabrics and textures with many embellishments.
The Makeup Look:
· Eyes: Katie used butter LONDON WINK Eye Pencil in Union Jack Black on the bottom lash line and smudged with her fingers to add a rock n’ roll edge. She used butter LONDON WINK Mascara in Union Jack Black on the lashes and the WINK Mascara in Brown Sugar on the brows to create subtle definition. Vaseline was applied on the lids of the eyes to add a glossy effect. Three black crystals were applied below the right eye.
· Lips: Katie used butter LONDON LIPPY Balm in Toasted Marshmallow to neutralize the lip colour. She added a hint of butter LONDON LIPPY Balm in Black Cherry – matted lightly in the center of the lips.
· Skin: Skin was clean with minimal tinted moisturizer.
The Nail Look: Katie applied butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Union Jack Black. She then used holographic foil and applied several colours to the nails. She finally applied crystals and studs to the nails and a small red pom-pom on accent nails. The crystals were also used to create hand-art – placed along the middle finger to elongate the look of the fingers.
