Being major beauty aficionados ourselves, we are always on the lookout for new makeup trends. And the latest makeup trend to have caught our attention is 'Buttery skin'. This trend was initially spotted on MUA Isabelle de Vries' Instagram page and we must say—we're obsessed.
The look mimics the appearance of smooth, glowing butter on your skin (minus the obvious glossiness of glass skin), and is achieved through good skincare and a clever concealing technique. Let’s find out how to get this look in 3 simple steps...
Prepping your skin is an essential step in this look that you just cannot miss. Hydrate your skin by working a moisturiser such as the Lakmé Peach Milk Soft Cremé Moisturizer into the skin. It is essential to leave the moisturiser for a few minutes before you apply makeup so that it sinks in completely to help makeup glide with ease.
What separates this makeup trend from the others is that buttery skin is all about applying your foundation with your fingers instead of with any of the foundation brushes or sponges.
Pick a liquid foundation such as the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation With SPF 45 in the shade that’s closest to your actual skin tone. Next, using your fingers, press the liquid formula gently into the skin, allowing the warmth of your fingers to melt the product. Remember while applying foundation that less is more.
The last step is all about using a concealer to highlight your face instead of a shimmery highlighter. Pick the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer that is two shades lighter than your foundation and using a small, fluffy brush blend it into the high points of your face to give a light and flawless finish.
You will be surprised to see how flawless and buttery smooth your skin will appear.
