HOW TO: NEW YEAR’S EVE MAKEUP LOOKS FOR A 2021 GLOW

See ya never, 2020! Break up with the old year and welcome in the new with bubbly makeup looks that  are sure to make the champagne pop and their jaws drop. Whether you are toasting virtually, 6-feet apart or however you choose to celebrate, butter LONDON has created 3 gorgeous, posh and face-mask friendly beauty looks that will highlight your eyes and help start the new year off right!

New Year’s Glow

Combine a striking cat eye look with a fresh and flawless-looking complexion that shines as bright as your future.

Step #1: A glow starts at the base. Enhance the look of your complexion and blur imperfections by applying the LumiMatte Blurring Skin Tint to the face using your fingertips.

Step #2: Warm your skin, flush your cheeks AND add a radiant-looking glow all with one skin-loving product: butter LONDON Cheeky Face Palette. Use your favorite cosmetic brush and gently dip into the luminous bronzer, applying it to the cheekbones, forehead and jawline. Next, dust the rosy-pink blush across the apples of your cheeks, then highlight your cheekbones with a sweep of the shimmering, champagne highlighter.

Step # 3: Power up for the night with the Power Up All Day Wear Eyeliner and Mascara. First, create a bold cat eye look using the smudge-proof and long wear liquid eyeliner—feel free to try your hand at a “fox eye” by adding the liner to the inner corner of your eyes too! Last but not least, define your eyes with a swipe of the Power Up All Day Wear Mascara to help lengthen and curl your lashes.

Step #4: Complete your look with a swipe of nude lipstick on your lips using the plumping butter LONDON Plush Rush Lipstick in Playful.

Smoke Show

Create a cool-toned smokey eye look with a touch of golden shimmer for a New Year’s look that dazzles.

Step #1: Start with our bestselling Teddy Boy Eyeshadow Palette. Create an even base by applying the nude eyeshadow in Nigel to the entire eyelid. Use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to blend Simon, a soft taupe eyeshadow colour, into the crease before gently diffusing the eyeshadow shade out and upwards.

Step #2: With the same fluffy makeup brush, apply the dark brown eyeshadow in Graham to the outer corner of your eye in a V shape. Build the eyeshadow until the desired drama is achieved. Blend, blend, blend into the crease to help create a seamless eyeshadow look.

Step #3: Sparkle and shine with a touch of gold. Using your finger, dip into the Glazen Eye Gloss in Spark and apply it to the middle of your eyelid, blending it into the inner corner of the eye.

Step #4: Line your way to smokey allure using the matte black eyeshadow in Rupert. Dip the end of the flat eyeshadow brush into the black hue, then create a smudged eyeliner effect by applying the eyeshadow colour to the upper and lower lash line.

Step #5: Top off your smokey eyeshadow look and take on the day—or night—with a swipe of Double Decker Mascara to help lengthen the look of lashes and complete the look of your sultry smoke show!

Chromatic Eyes

Label yourself a 2021 trendsetter with the glossy eye look that is about to take over runways and magazines.

Step #1: Reach for the Teddy Girl Eyeshadow Palette and cover the eyelid in the pale nude eyeshadow in Poppy. Next, dip your finger into the iridescent Glazen Eye Gloss in Oil Slick and apply it to the entire eyelid for a kaleidoscopic blue and plum-toned sparkle eye makeup look.

Step #2: Going back to the Teddy Girl Eyeshadow Palette, use a blending eyeshadow brush to apply the warm brown eyeshadow shade in Beatrice to the outer V of the eye and the bottom lash line. Gently diffuse outwards for an effortless-looking eye makeup application.

Step #3: Use the smudge-proof and longwear butter LONDON Eye Pencil in Brown Sugar to line the upper and lower lash line. Take lashes to their greatest length with the Stroke of Wow Volumizing Mascara.
