Yes, give them both a severe cut, I'd be inclined to do it in October as that is when I tend to do all mine, I'm always afraid that if I do it is Spring I'll lose all the flowers - though with the fuchsias that is very unlikely as they really are as tough as old boots. In some milder areas they are used as hedges and trimmed with hedge cutters like any other hedge, and still flower like mad. Not so certain about the honeysuckle - no experience with that. Feed and water, feed again in the spring and off they will go.
