Winter Wonderland Makeup Look

This look is inspired by the traditional white Christmas with the cold, frosty weather. Winter is my favorite season, and I’ve always wanted to create a frosty makeup look. So with that, I created a blue and white “smokey eye” and of course, threw in some glitter as well.



I decided to go full coverage with this look and opted for a light foundation then set with powder. I wanted the face to look clean and crisp, so I took a pale powder and baked under my eyes, around my nose and mouth, and in the middle of my forehead. I then carved out my cheekbones with a contour shade, and baked under that to give a sharper line. Next, I added a dark, rosy blush to the apples of my cheek. Finally I highlighted my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, and cupids bow with a cool toned highlight.


Apply a white cream base all over the lid. Set this with a shimmery white shadow. I then added a pale blue shadow into the crease, and deepened the outer corner with a dark blue shade. Apply the blues to the lower lash line as well. I also added the same face highlighter to my brow bone and inner corner. For the eyeliner, you could use a glitter liner but I didn’t have one so I just took a few extra steps. I started by creating a winged line with a metallic silver eyeliner pencil. Then I applied eyelash glue on top of that and once it was tacky, set with some silver glitter. Add mascara and you’re done!


I’m the type of person who always opts for a nude lip, so of course this look wasn’t any different. I outlined my lips with a very pale pencil eyeliner, and then filled the rest of my lips in with a nude lipstick.

Hope you’re having a jolly holiday season so far,
