COOL WINTER BEAUTY TREND
Hello makeup divas! Beore we jump into the pinks and peaches that spring makeup will undoubtedly bring, I wanted to pay homage to one of my favorite makeup looks this winter season. Whether at Sunday brunch or on the red carpet, women are rocking the ethereal icy blue and sliver grey eyeshadows.. This color combo seems to work well on virtually every skintone, as you can see. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this trend will stick around for spring. DIY Anyone can pull this look off. Apply color on the lid, then use a deeper shade to contour in the crease. Clear blues, shimmery crème/white or even gold on the lid will give the same effect. If you have a rich skintone be sure to choose color with high pigment. Splurge on Dior 5 Color Eyeshadow in Blue Croisett ($54). Not in your budget? Check out Milani Runway Eyes Fashion Shadows in Backstage Basics (5 bars $7). Rim the entire eye with charcoal or black eyeliner and add mascara. Try Benefit Creasless Cream Eyeshadow/Liner in Skinny Jeans and Town Car Black ($19). Pair these eyes with subtle cheeks and a natural lip color.
