Butter London Natural Goddess Tutorial

Butter London has such a wide range of products. I’ve tried a few of their nail polishes before and one of their eyeliners, but I’ve never worked with their eyeshadows. I got this Natural Goddess eyeshadow palette in my July Boxycharm and couldn’t wait to start playing with it to see what kind of quality this formula had to offer. It’s a somewhat neutral palette with a few pops of color that are actually a lot more wearable for everyday than you might think.
For this tutorial, I’m starting off with my favorite Milani eyeshadow primer. This is one of the best primers on the market because it’s completely matte and can work on all different skin types. I have extremely oily eyes and this does a great job at keeping eyeshadow in place all day.
One thing the Natural Goddess palette is missing is a matte transition color for the crease. I decided to keep things pretty easy and just used my bronzer on a Luxie 250 Large Eye Blending brush. Makeup Geek’s Love Triangle is my absolute favorite and it’s perfect for multitasking on the eyes.
Now, moving to the palette, I’m taking the brown shade called Temptress and placing that on the outer third of my eye. This is an extremely pigmented eyeshadow, so work in light layers and build up as needed. Once I applied the amount of color I was looking for, I went in with a separate, empty, loose-bristled blending brush to help blend it out even more.
With just one color on the outer corner, things can tend to look a little boring and unfinished. So I decided to go back into Love Triangle and blend that in the crease again. This will add more dimension to the eyes and help blend the edge of Temptress into a more diffused look.
Then I took the shimmery copper shade called Diva and placed that over the rest of my eyelid, leaving just a little bit of space untouched by the inner corner. With shimmery shades like this, I like to pack it on the lid with my finger to get the most intense pigmentation possible.
Once the Diva shade was applied, I added a little bit of Enchantress to the inner corner that I left untouched. This is a beautiful shimmery pink champagne shade that will help to brighten the eyes and add more dimension over the eyelid. Again, I applied this shade with my finger first and then blended it into the crease with a small shader brush.
For our pop of color, I decided to use the shimmery green shade in the palette called Star. I buffed this along my lower lash line with the Luxie 246 Precision Crease brush. Normally I don’t like to go too dark under my lower lashes, but this is more of a lighter shade which eliminates that concern.
Moving onto eyeliner, I’m using the Appeal Cosmetics Gel Liner in the shade Forest Green. I applied it all the way along my upper lashes and only halfway along my lower lash line. This is a very smooth pencil, making application super easy. I don’t really like the look of a harsh pencil liner, so I went back in with the Luxie 246 Precision Crease brush and buffed out the liner just a little bit to give a more smokey effect.
Finishing up by curling the lashes and adding three coats of my favorite Benefit Roller Lash mascara. This look could be paired with a set of slightly more natural looking falsies, but this mascara is just as good. It makes my lashes as thick and as long as I would like without having to reach for anything else.
Here’s a close-up of the final look:
And a quick, more condensed guide for easy reference:
To finish up the rest of the face, I used my favorite Makeup Geek blush in the shade Heart Throb and created a lip combo with the Alamar Cosmetics lip gloss that was also included in my Boxycharm. I first applied the bellápierre Cosmetics lip liner in the shade Cinnamon, then used Pixi’s MatteLast Liquid Lip in the shade Pastel Petal, and finished it up with a few dots of the Alamar Cosmetics Des-Nude-As lip gloss in the shade Dulce.
This is such a fun look, especially with the Fall months coming up. Bronze and green is the perfect Fall combination! The nude lip helps to calm the look and this particular gloss gives the most gorgeous, juicy effect! Depending on your skin tone, you could even wear the gloss by itself without the other products. It’s just a little too light for me, so I had to bring in the other colors for some depth. If you’ve been looking for a way to mix in a little bit of color into an everyday look, this is a great way to do it. The green is there, but it’s not too loud.
