Get the Look: butter LONDON for New York Fashion Week 2014

butter LONDON's  Global Colour Ambassador, Katie Jane Hughes, kicked off New York Fashion week creating the nail and makeup looks for Creatures of the Wind, Tadashi Shoji, and Dannijo’s BOXERina presentation. 
Designer: Creatures of the Wind
Lead Manicurist: Katie Jane Hughes, butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador
The Scoop: Fabrics and patterns within the collection had a space-like/psychedelic feel, which was presented down the runway as an evolution of colours – from dark to light.

The Look: Katie used a technique called water marbling to create the nail design, with the agate stones that inspired the A/W ’14 collection as her guide. Each nail (675 in total) was made by hand last night by Katie and her team—with no two nails alike. To achieve the look, Katie poured drops of several Nail Lacquer shades one after another into a bowl of water, creating rings of colour, much like agate. Once the colour had been placed, Katie took an orange wood stick to swirl the colours together, creating a range of patterns. She then dipped the press on nail into the water, letting it sit under the water’s edge just below the pattern she wanted to lift onto the nail. Once removed, the pattern below the surface was transferred to the nail. To add playful variation to the nail look, two different base colours were used: butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Trallop was used on half of the models nails and Nail Lacquer in Teddy Girl was used on the rest.
Nail Lacquer Colours Used: Yummy Mummy, Diamond Geezer, Posh Bird, Pearly Queen, Billy No Mates
Designer: Tadashi Shoji
Lead Manicurist: Katie Jane Hughes, butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador
The Scoop: The collection was inspired by Moorish architecture and textiles, with a range of deep hues and rich shades.
The Look: Katie applied butter LONDON Nail Foundation to the nails followed by butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Marbs to create the gold half-moon and tip. She completed the look with butter LODON P.D. Quick Topcoat.
Designer: Dannijo
Lead Makeup Artist & Manicurist: Katie Jane Hughes, butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador
The Scoop: The collection hinges on the relationship between ballet and boxing and its ability to connect us to the core essence of humanity. BOXERina is about the power of emotion, its role in creating and humanizing our heroes. The collection was presented as a ballet, with dancers from the American Ballet Theatre serving as the models, choreographed by Nicola Curry.
The Makeup Look:
·         Eyes: butter LONDON WINK Mascara in Union Jack Black on the lashes, WINK Eye Pencil in Twigged on the bottom lash line and palette of nude powder shadows
·         Brows: butter LONDON WINK Mascara in Brown Sugar, groomed upwards
·         Lips: the new LIPPY Lip Balms in either Toasted Marshmallow or Nutter (depending on skin tone) mixed with a hint of concealer
·         Skin: concealer around the nose and on blemishes, as needed; the new Hydrating Balm mixed with a highlighter on all high points of the face (pressed onto the middle of the forehead, down the nose, on the top of the lip, across cheek bones and brow bones); butter LONDON Cream Bronzer in Bit Faker (out Summer ’14) on the cheeks
·         Body: to give the ballerinas a polished and sporty shine, Katie mixed the new butter LONDON Signature Lotion with body oil and applied sparingly on legs, arms, shoulders and décolletage
The Nail Look: Katie applied the new butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Goss as the base, and then applied Nail Lacquer in Posh Bird at the tips using a makeup sponge.
Dannijo’s BOXERina presentation must have been amaazing and sounds so elegant and beautiful.  The colour scheme is divine and I love the mixture of nudes and metallic look of the nails. Check out you favorite butter LONDON products here.
