Snow Queen Tutorial

If you're like me, winter is your favorite time of year. In my opinion the clothes are better, the
makeup lasts longer and the whole world turns a little bit magic. That is just my opinion of course. There are a lot of people who dislike it, but for those of you who love it I thought Halloween may be a fun time to pay tribute to the most wonderful time of the year.
1) To start with I used my Becca: Backlight Priming Filter. 
2) Then I used the Becca: Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme.
3) I decided to cream contour with the Bobbi Brown: Skin Foundation Stick in Almond from my BBU Palette.
4) Then I concealed under my eyes using the Nars: Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla.
I decided that this would be a perfect time to bring out the Tarte: Light Of The Party Collector's Makeup Case. Full review here.
5) Using Tartini #1 in the crease after priming the lid with Eden from Urban Decay.
6) Then a pressed Fizz The Season #2 lower lid space.
7) I then mixed It's Snow Time #3 and In A Flurry #4 in the inner corner and on the brow bone as a highlight. (Let's just pause a moment and appreciate the names of the shadows!)
8) Lasty I took Mulled Wine #5 on a fine angled brush, followed by Midnight Kiss #6 along the outer half of my lash upper lash line to thicken the look of my lashes.
9) I popped Amazed Blush, from the Tarte set, just on the apples of my cheeks to create a flushed-from-the-cold look.
10) I then used the Becca: Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured in Pearl. I used my fingers to apply this as the warmth from them tends to spread cream products easier.
11) I then used Pink Champagne highlighter, from the set, to highlight even more creating a high beam effect.
12) On my lashes I used Benefit Roller Lash and then I used Duo Lash lash glue to apply long Ardell individual lashes.
13) Using Urban Decay: 24/7 Glide On Pencil in Ransom (discontinued) to create a purple snowflake on the cheek. Following up with Urban Decay: Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Distortion on top of the snowflake.
14) I then did half snowflake designs on the outer corners of my eyes with the glitter liner.
15) The final touch is to apply Kat Von D: Studded Kiss Lipstick in Coven. I wanted a twinkling gloss on top so I have a throw back for you...LipSmackers Vanilla Frosting Lipgloss.

And that is the finished look! I hope you like it, and honestly, you could skip a couple steps and 
wear this as an actual look. I hope you like the look and that if nothing else it gives you some inspiration. I have some more looks coming for you, so don't forget to follow me here or on my social media, if you're not already, so you don't miss a thing.
