NY Fashion Week: BOXERina Style

butter LONDON’s Global Colour Ambassador Katie Jane Hughes was on hand to create the nail and makeup looks backstage at Dannijo’s BOXERina presentation at New York Fashion Week. 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 humanixing our heroes. The collection was presented as a ballet with dancers from the American Ballet Theatre serving as the models, choreographed by Nicola Curry. Keep reading for all the fabulous details…


THE EYES: butter LONDON WINK Mascara in Union Jack Black was used for the lashes, and a WINK Eye Pencil in Twigged was used on the bottom lash line. A palette of nude powder eyeshadows was applied to the eyelids.
THE BROWS: butter LONDON WINK Mascara in Brown Sugar was applied to the brows, which were groomed upwards.
THE LIPS: The new LIPPY Lip Balms in either Toasted Marshmallow or Nutter (depending on skin tone) were mixed with a hint of concealer and applied to lips.
THE SKIN: Concealer was applied 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 the check bones and brow bones) was applied, and butter LONDON Cream Bronzer in Bit Faker (which will be out in Summer 2014) was applied to the cheeks.

THE 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, shoulder and décolletage.

THE NAILS: Katie applied the new butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Goss at the base color and then applied Nail Lacquer in Posh Bird at the tips using a makeup sponge.
