The chill of winter has set in, but don’t let the cold affect your make-up. While celebrating your favorite qualities of the season, add a little dazzle to your make-up by creating an Ice Princess effect. Yes, we’re thinking Elsa from Frozen – she’s beautiful in so many ways, so let go of your old make-up habits and venture into new territory with this tutorial.
For Your Face:
It’s essential to create a clean, crisp palate to frame your mystical ice princess look. So, start your look with a layer of concealer. We love H&M’s BB Cream ($9.95) which evens skin tone as well as conceals. Top your concealer with a matte-finish Foundation and Powder to prevent streaks. Or, use a Mineral Veil (our favorite is bareMinerals for $21.00). For a luminous look, add a Highlighting Powder along your cheekbones.
For Your Eyes:
Line the base of your eyelid with a white Eye Shadow Pencil, we prefer H&M’s Eye Pen ($4.95). Follow the natural curve of your eye upward to create a Wing that peaks just below the highest point of your natural crease. Then, line the crease of your eyelid to meet the bottom line with the Eye Shadow Pencil to create a Cateye. Color your Cateye inward to make an ombre effect by smudging the color toward your inner eye. For a radiant design, cover with a shiny Powder Eye Shadow in white.
Mascara is crucial for this look to really work. For an extra pop, consider fake eyelashes. Try Eylure Naturalites ($4.99), available at Target, or you can add decorative lashes to exaggerate the ice effect.
For Your Lips:
Line the outside of your lips with the same white Eye Shadow Pencil. Then, apply a nude lipstick. Finally, cover the entire lip with the white Eye Shadow Pencil. Consider adding a clear gloss if you’d prefer lips that gleam. Our favorite gloss is e.l.f., which can be found in a set at Target ($10.00).
For Your Nails:
If you desire, paint your nails white to match your refined make-up. We believe Nordstrom’s dip ($10.00) is the best polish for the look.
For the final touch, wear a faux fur coat or scarf and mittens. Decorate your hair with crystals and don sparkly white earrings, like these from H&M.
