Buttery skin: the new makeup trend

Written by FDM

For the past five years, Instagram has forged a reputation for being the home of trends. Many beauty trends have notably found solid ground on the platform, starting with contouring to the No Makeup makeup and the Yoga Skin… Today, The Buttery Skin look is the latest trend going viral.

It’s been a while now since we kissed the heavy face makeup look goodbye. Trends like Yoga skin and Glass skin have taken over to liberate our faces from the heavy layers of condensed products and make a place for a more radiant and healthy looking skin.

The Butterry Skin comes to add some techniques that mimic the same silky texture that comes off as smoother as butter. Make-up artist De Vries, the inventor of this method explains to Glamor: “It’s all about beautiful, healthy and glowy skin … I called it that because it brings the same silky and smooth texture as butter.”

How to achieve this makeup?

The first and most important step is moisturizing. First of all, you have to exfoliate your skin then moisturize it with a mask and then with a primer that projects radiance and shine. As for the next step which is the foundation, warm the product in the palm of the hands and apply it, finally apply a few drops of highlighter to get shiny cheekbones.

For a 100% Buttery Skin makeup, choose a nude color eyeshadow for your eyes. In short, nothing complicated and yet, the result is just hot!
