When you break it all down, makeup is really all about the ingredients. The right (or wrong) ones can affect how the formula looks on your skin, wears throughout the day, and more. That's why we're spotlighting an ingredient that should definitely be on your radar and in your makeup bag: butter.
Moisturizing Tucuma Butter, Cupuaçu Butter and a Murumuru Butter blend are the key ingredients in Physicians Formula's Murumuru Butter collection and can be a total game changer when incorporated into your routine. The Butter Eyeshadow Palettes consist of a mix of both matte and shimmer finishes in 12 tropical-inspired shades, which are formulated with these natural exotic butter ingredients from the Amazon to deliver good-for-skin benefits in a highly pigmented product. Another editor-favorite in this collection? The Butter Lip Creams, which not only boast the same butter blend, but also contain conditioning fatty acids for a lush formula that moisturizes your lips while providing tons of color-payoff. Keep reading to see how the Murumuru Butter collection can help you achieve this season's trendiest looks for makeup that feels as good as it looks.
This season, we're all about a monochromatic look. The key to pulling off this all-over effect? Blendable products. Terracotta eyes and blurred, berry lips are the perfect beauty beat when you're planning on transitioning from day to night. The whole look gives off nostalgic '70s vibes that can be perceived as happy and playful during the day or sultry and fun at night, which is why it was a favorite on the runway this past Fashion Week.
To create this look, you'll need the perfect blend of copper and bronze, which can be found in the Butter Eyeshadow Palette in Tropical Days. Start at the lash line and blend up toward your brow bone to create this molten metallic effect. Be sure to buff all over to prevent creases and to softly diffuse the color. Finish off your eye look with a touch of gold at the center of your lid and in the corner of your eye to add subtle dimension.
Next, you'll want to add warmth to the rest of your face with the Butter Blush in Saucy Mauve. Starting at the apples of your cheeks and working up and out toward your hairline, swirl on this creamy powder blush to create the glow-from-within look that stays put all day. Follow that up with a touch of Butter Bronzer around your hairline and over the bridge of your nose to add a sun-kissed flush to your skin.
Finish off the entire look by dabbing on the superpigmented and buttery-soft Butter Lip Cream in Acai Berry. You'll want to blot this product directly onto your lips to control the color payoff while creating that much sought-after "just-kissed" lip effect.
If Instagram has taught us anything, it's that makeup doesn't have to be so serious. We love products that allow us to experiment with color in a foolproof way that's worthy of your feed. Opt for products that have longevity in your makeup bag and that can be used no matter your beauty mood. Craving something bold and fun? The Butter Eyeshadow Palette will work for that. What about something soft and office-appropriate? The blendable formulas in this palette can also provide tons of daytime inspo.
Try re-creating this wearable look at home using the Butter Eyeshadow Palette in Tropical Days. Just use your eye-shadow applicator to pat on color. The secret is to apply thin layers of product until you've achieved your desired effect: a soft wash of color.
Since your eyes are going to be the focal point of this look, you'll want to keep the rest of your makeup simple yet flattering. Use a touch of Butter Bronzer to frame your face and add some dimension on the concave of your cheekbones. Then, juxtapose your purple lid with a poppy lip for a pretty colorblock effect. The Butter Lip Cream in Guava Mama adds just the right touch of fun.
A trend that never goes out of style? A flattering and intense smoky eye. But it's notoriously hard to pull off.
When it comes to a smoky eye, you want a bold look that won't transfer, crease, or travel — a big ask when playing with fickle powder formulas. But the Butter Eyeshadow Palette in Sultry Nights is filled with intensely pigmented shades that can be applied wet or dry for long wearability. Just blend shades of Gunmetal Grey and Charcoal Black to create a dramatic smoky eye with some dimension. The subtle flecks in the shadow help catch the light just right so that the entire look has a shiny effect without looking glittery or too over the top. The key is to use the sponge applicator to blot and blend, gradually building on the intensity as you go. Use the tip of the applicator as a liner close to your lash line, and use the clean side to correct any mistakes or smudges.
While this application method will ensure your eyes are bold, you'll want to keep the rest of your look neutral and soft. Blend Butter Bronzer on your cheeks for a touch of warmth, and then apply the Butter Highlighter in Pearl on the tops of your cheekbones for a dewy, glowy finish. Finally, play up your feminine side with a swipe of the Butter Lip Cream in Soaking Up the Sun for a subtle color that will soften the overall look in a very fashion-forward way.
