Backstage Beauty: butter LONDON + Laura Mercier @ Libertine FW14

Libertine’s fall 2014 collection was colorful, heavily embellished and showcased a variety of textures. Katie Jane Hughes, butter LONDON‘s Global Colour Ambassador, created both the nail and makeup looks for the Libertine girl, going for a glam approach with a splash of goth– think a party girl who has been digging around in diamonds.

The Beauty Statement: 1) Prep skin with moisturizer and apply Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer around the nose and on blemishes.

2) Contour hollows of the cheek with a tapered contour brush.

3) Curl lashes and then apply mascara; using a freshly sharpened eye pencil, draw out the line of the wing and fill in, then cover the lid up to the crease and blend with a soft brush, keeping the wing defined; press shadow over the pencil and blend up toward the brow bone. Finish with a light-colored liner on the bottom lash line.

The Nail Statement: 1) Start by applying butter LONDON nail lacquer in The Black Knight to the tips of press-on nails.

2) Apply nail lacquer in Stardust and the new nail lacquer in Anorak (a black, white and silver chunky glitter overcoat, available March 2014) over the entire nail.

3) To finish: While the nails were still wet, Katie completed the look by applying holographic, diamond-shaped glitter to the tips of the nails.
