Snowflakes!

I wore this fun look to my 'Winter Wonderland' themed holiday meeting at work! By the time I took these pictures I'd already been running around for 7 hours so it's sadly a bit faded. The inner corner highlight was much stronger and the entire look was much more glittery than it photographed!

AAANnnyyway! Sorry I've been MIA, the holiday season is busy busy busy! Hope you guys enjoy this look!

  


1 Pat an eyeshadow primer all over the lid.
2 Peel off the eyeshadow sticker and line it up with your lash line. Hold the far sides down with your thumb and index finger and use your other hand to rub and smooth the back of the sticker to transfer the design.
3 When removed, you will see the design and feel that the shadow feels very sticky and creamy. Try to keep your eye as closed as possible so that you don't smear the snowflake design! Use a stiff brush or you finger to soften the edges.
4 Apply a translucent powder on top of the snow flake to set it into place. Press an iridescent blue shadow all over the lid starting 2/3's of the way in. Wrap it around the lower lash line as well. Make sure you use a small brush around the intricate design of the snowflakes!
5 Press a light blue iridescent shadow on the first third of the lid and a frosty duo chrome white/green on the inner corners of the eyes. Use this duo chrome eyeshadow to soften the edges all around your blue eyeshadow (top and bottom) and to highlight the brow to make the whole look glow! I brought this colour down onto my cheekbones as well to tie the whole look together!
6 Pat a fine, light blue glitter all over the lid.
7 Define the outer corner of the upper lash line with a thin line of black liquid or gel liner and apply lots of mascara to the upper lashes!
