Today, I’m here to talk makeup. Specifically, an easy makeup look inspired by everyone’s favourite Snow Queen – Elsa! I really like this look for a few reasons. It’s very quick and easy, so perfect for a busy morning, but still has a nice dose of colour, for the days when you might not want to use all neutrals. Being January, it’s a nice refreshing palette after all the red and green, and let’s face it – Toronto has frozen over like Arendelle this week, so at least it matches the weather!
Here’s how I put this all together:
- Foundation, concealer, and setting powder as normal (I’m currently using NYX BB Cream in Nude, Rimmel’s Hide the Blemish in Neutralizer, and CoverFX’s SettingFX powder for light skin tones).
- Gently swirl a rosy, almost candy pink blush onto cheekbones (my pick here – Artistry Cheek Colour in Pink Passion).
- Eyes – this is the most intricate step, but still simple. Use a white or pearly shade to highlight the brow bone and inner corner of your eyes, followed by a light nude shade on the rest of the eyelid above the crease. Then use a pastel pink shade right on the crease. Apply a rich blue from the lashline to just below the crease. Blend the colours gently into a seamless look. (Colours used here in order of application – Artistry Eye Colour in Starry Night, Bone, Charm, and Capri). Apply 1 or 2 generous coats of mascara to upper lashes (here, I used Artistry’s Signature Eyes Volume Mascara).
- For lips, choose a soft pink lipstick or gloss. Here I’ve used a custom blended pink lipstick, and Artistry’s Light Up Lip Gloss in Glitz.
And that’s it! I would suggest wearing icy hues of clothing as well. This was a look I did for our ice skating date, so I wore an almost Tiffany-blue sweater, a shade that’s actually pretty close to Elsa’s dress. Of course white and black would work well with this look, as would a cool pink or even purple!
What sorts of fun makeup looks have you been creating? Do you like to vary your colours with the seasons, or opt for a similar palette year-round?
