'Buttery Skin' Will Make Your Face Look Good Enough to Eat


Skin and makeup trends come and go so quickly that it can be hard to keep up. That’s why we’re here. And today we are introducing the latest one – ‘buttery skin’ – which is as delicious as it sounds.

Smooth Like Butter

It should come as no surprise that dewy skin is in. Because who *doesn’t* want to have a youthful glow? Not long ago, ‘glass skin’ was popular, after which came ‘yoga skin’. The latest makeup technique gives just as much radiance and is gaining just as much online traction as its predecessors. Say hello to ‘buttery skin’ – a term invented by pro makeup artist Isabelle De Vries – which is all about making skin look both beautiful and healthy.

Unlike ‘glass skin’, ‘buttery skin’ is a makeup technique rather than being skincare-orientated. It is also (you’ll be happy to know) easy to achieve because instead of transforming your skin completely by piling on tons of product, you are merely concealing any imperfections. As for the name, the finish of this technique makes your complexion silky smooth with a sheen that might resemble a stick of butter. In a good way.

Get Your Buttery Face Beat On

The ‘buttery skin’ technique relies on plenty of layering to get that glow. Here’s how it’s done:

1 Make sure that your skin is smooth by exfoliating it, and then add some hydration, such as a serum or sheet mask that contains hyaluronic acid.

2 In order to get this look down, your skin needs to be smooth. Because lumpy butter is NOT a vibe. We suggest using an illuminating primer that will smooth out any bumps while adding some radiance.

3 If you like this trend but also like matte foundation, you are going to have some decisions to make, because to get your skin looking ‘buttery’ you need one with a dewy finish. Mixing some liquid highlighter into it will also boost your glow.

4 You want to make sure that you look creamy and hydrating, so avoid using powder products. Use a cream blush formula instead for a perfect finish.

5 So by this point, you probably have enough illuminating products on your face. So instead of reaching for your regular highlighter, apply a beauty balm that doesn’t contain shimmer to your cheekbones for a lit-from-within glow.

6 To complete this look, spray some illuminating facial mist or just a fine layer of the regular hydrating variety on to your face. This will give that slightly-sweaty-but-totally-fresh finish.

We like you, ‘buttery skin.’ You can stay.
