Try a new palette this holiday season inspired by the awesome beauty of an ice cave.  Whether in a warm or cold climate, these cool tones will have you feeling like an ice princess.

Here are 3 ice-inspired makeup looks:

  1. Evening Frost.  For an ethereal look, sweep a shimmery turquoise shadow over eye lid with your base shadow brush (1).  Use your domed shadow brush to finely blend pigment up toward the brow for a subtle look. Try Nars Eye Shadow Duo in Burn It Blue (2).
  2. Snow Fall.  Apply a sheer layer of white shadow like MAC Eye Shadow in Avalanche, from lash line to brow with your base shadow brush.  Smudge a deep teal shadow onto your upper lash line with your accent brush then blend up toward crease with your domed shadow brush to create a gradient eye makeup look.
  3. Ice Storm. Use different textures to pump-up the dimension and drama.  Press on a cream shadow like, Makeup Forever Acqua Cream Color in Turquoise over lid and blend up into crease with your domed shadow brush then apply cream onto your lower lash line with your accent brush.  Layer a powder eye shadow on top of the cream to add depth and keep makeup lasting all night long.  Finish eyes by adding a white shadow under eye brow with a clean domed shadow brush and then blend lightly with your setting brush for a dazzling highlight.
