Project Runway Jr + butterLONDON!

Project Runway has been a favorite of mine since in started in 2004. Has it really been that long??? Guess so, Season 15 just wrapped up a few weeks ago. Now adding to the fashions, designers, judges and the eponymous workroom, is Project Runway Jr. –contestants are 13-17 yrs old. The second season debuted on Dec. 22nd. Tim Gunn is back again as mentor, with host Hannah Jeter and judges Kelly Osbourne, Christian Siriano, and Aya Kanai.

On season 2, Project Runway Jr. is collaborating with butter LONDON for all the makeup. This makes me so happy! I’ve loved butterLONDON nail lacquer for ages and my devotion to the brand grew even more when they introduced their makeup line.

As part of their official makeup sponsorship, butter LONDON’s beauty room was featured in the premier episode, where contestants worked with celebrity makeup artist Scott Patric to create one-of-a-kind looks to complement their designs on the runway.

The season debuted with a “First Impressions Challenge,” putting the up-and-coming designers to the test by asking them to create a look that represents their point of view. Whether they are inspired by their surroundings, their experience being chosen to compete on Project Runway Junior or something from within themselves, each of these talented young artists have something to share.

The winning look featured an array of butter LONDON products, including the award winning Glazen Eye Gloss, Double Decker Lashes Mascara and Plush Rush Lip Gloss. 







Season 2 Episode 2 of Project Runway Junior® brought us the summer heat in the midst of winter! In the always exciting “Unconventional Challenge” (my very favorite challenge) episode, this season’s group of next-generation fashion greats found themselves tasked with designing a look using a variety of aquatic materials inspired by nail and makeup sponsor, butter LONDONTM’s, Pure, Posh & Playful personality. While taking in the skyline from atop a Manhattan rooftop pool, these talented teens created ensembles using inflatable flamingos, beach balls, tiki torches and more.

Winning Look

Under the direction of co-hosts Tim Gunn and Hannah Jeter – plus special guest, butter LONDON President Sarina Godin – the designers were definitely not feeling the summertime sadness in the butter LONDON beauty room! With assistance from celebrity makeup artist Scott Patric, contestants dove right in, capping off their pool party-esque attire with punch-colored glosses, sun-kissed bronzers and more. The winning look featured a number of butter LONDON colour and nail favorites, including the award-winning Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer, Melt Away Cuticle Exfoliator, Double Decker Lashes Mascara and Plush Rush Lip Gloss.



I had to laugh out loud when Tim said “it looks like Beach Blanket Bingo meets Gillian’s Island” and the contestants have no idea who or what Gillian’s Island is! One of girl’s says it’s a Charles Dickens book. Kids these days!!

I can’t wait for the next episode! I cannot believe how creative and talented these teens are, it’s so inspiring!
