As experts in the areas of hair and makeup, we at Gibson Hair + Makeup (one of the top, boutique hair salons in Charleston) have given you plenty of great style advice recently. We have covered tons of great topics, but we noticed that the makeup part of Hair and Makeup has been a little thin, so we want to give you some foolproof fall makeup color ideas from butter London.
Looking Flawless With butter London
If you have ever paid attention to NYFW or trending fall celebrity hair and makeup styles, you’re most likely aware that bold lip colors are one of the cornerstones of a great fall makeup arsenal. But many of us everyday, average women just leave this fall makeup tactic to the pros, because they aren’t quite sure how to make it work without it looking like too much. Maybe you give it a try, but end up feeling like you put on clown makeup, so you wipe it off and go back to the basics.
The Answer is – couple your bold lip colors with a set of soft eyes.
So How Do I Pull it off?
Firstly, you’ll want to start with a fresh, clean palette. Butter London’s Scrubbers Makeup Remover is a great way to gently remove dirt, oils, and makeup residue so that you have clean beautiful skin to work with (if you have super-sensitive skin, you’ll love these Scrubbers). Once your face is fresh and clean, you’ll want to apply some pre-makeup facial moisturizer then follow that up with a little T-zone foundation and concealer (if needed).
Now it is time to set up your eyes! Try the WINK Eye Pencil, preferably in a brown, like ‘Twigged’ to get a softer look than what you would get with your standard black pencil. Lightly draw around your lashline and then blend it for a natural smokey feel. Finish this out with a bit of black WINK mascara.
To get a real fall feel on those luscious lips, definitely go matte! Butter London’s LIPPY moisture matte lipstick is perfect for this and you can maximize the matte effect by dabbing the lipstick on while puckering your lips until they are mostly covered, then just gently press your lips together a few times to finish the coverage. Some the best butter London lip colors for the fall are abbey rose, blowing raspberries, toff, come to bed red, dahling, lady bird, loved up, and Macbeth.
Now, when doing your fall hair and makeup, your cheeks usually won’t need too much pop. For the perfect fall makeup effect, just brush the apples of your cheeks with some CHEEKY cream blush in a color like, Ruby Murray.
