Tutorial: Ice Princess

Greetings from the Dark Side :)
A huge welcome to any new readers and a big thank you to all of my followers who continue to read my posts ♥

Today I have a wonderfully glam winter look using blue and silver eyeshadows. This is the perfect way to use color on your eyes for a winter party or just to reflect the icyness of the colder months. Blue is not the most wearable shade for most people, but I think this is not super overwhelming and it still has a soft effect on the eyes. If you want to recreate this Ice Princess look, stick around~!

Also, I will be having a "Get the Look" giveaway tomorrow for this look. So, you will have the chance to win most of the products I used to achieve this look! :D

                                                                       Products Used                                                                   

-Maybelline Color Tattoo in 'Too Cool'
-Maybelline Eyestudio Palette 'Blue Blowout'
-Jessie's Girl white eyeliner pencil
-L'oreal Voluminous eyeliner pen

-Lioele Super Gold Snail BB Cream

-Wet n Wild 'Dollhouse Pink' lipstick
-Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss 'Crystal Water'


1. As usual prime your eyes with a base. I used Maybelline's 'Too Cool' Color Tattoo because it works very well as a base and it gives a nice wintery color to the lids.

2. Use the matte baby blue from the Maybelline 'Blue Blowout' palette and apply it lightly on the crease. This is going to be a guideline for the darker blue we will be applying next.

3. With a small brush, apply the dark navy blue from the Maybelline palette and apply it in a V shape on the outer part of the eye. Make the line very sharp and very dark. Don't worry if it is not perfect. We will be blending it and fixing it along the way.

4. With a fluffy brush, go back in with the baby blue eyshadow and apply it on the crease again. This is to intensify the baby blue and to blend out the navy blue slightly. The best way to approach this is to do a little bit at a time. Apply a little bit of color, blend and repeat if needed until you are satisfied with the result.

 5. Go back in with the navy blue eyeshadow and fix the V shape. Blend it in ever so slightly to achieve a soft gradient between the navy blue and the baby blue. If you feel that blending it took away from the intensity of the navy blue, go back with the small brush and apply a little bit more of the navy blue to have a nice sharp line.

6. Use a matte white eyeshadow on the brow bone. Apply it right above the baby blue and blend it in slightly to create a soft, blended edge to the baby blue.

7. Once you are satisfied with the crease and the outer V, start to work on the lower lash line. Apply a white liner on the waterline and the baby blue eyeshadow along the lower lash line.

8. Use a flat brush to apply the silver color from the Maybelline palette on the lid. This color is a little glittery so make sure to pat the color rather than swiping in on the lid.

9. Finish up this look by using mascara, liquid liner, and falsies if you wish :)

10. My eyebrows were out of control so I had to pluck some of my eyebrows before taking the final picture. When my eyebrows are very unruly I also apply some concealer around my eyebrows to define the shape I want and to conceal some of the smaller stray hairs.
