HOLIDAY MAKEUP INSPIRATION

POST + PHOTOGRAPHY BY AMY NADINE, GRAPHIC DESIGN BY EUNICE CHUN

There’s something so pretty about a frosty eye paired with a frosty lip! You’d think it will wash you out, but if you make sure to anchor the look with 1. a strong dark brow, 2. a black inner rim and 3. black mascara, I promise you, you’ll be happily surprised! Here’s how to recreate the shimmery look I did on the lovely Miss Bria Murphy above:

TOOLS:

STEPS:

  1. Paint the entire lid with the frost shadow stick.
  2. Trace the frost shadow stick along the lower lashline and blend it with your finger as shown above.
  3. Rim the inner waterline with the black pencil.
  4. Sweep the gold shadow along the crease of the upper lid.
  5. Coat the lashes with mascara.
  6. Contour your cheeks with the bronzer. Revisit my Contouring 101 Tutorial if needed. Then apply the highlighter above the cheekbones.
  7. Finish by painting your lips directly from the tube or with a lip brush for more precision.
