Winter is right around the corner and it is driving me with an overload of look ideas! My inspiration today is all thanks to my mom, she had come up with the idea of a look representing someone who just stepped out of a winter wonderland. While some people might be scared to wear the frosty blues, I assure you with a light pink lip, almost nude, it’ll feel just like you’re wearing a bronzed smokey eye!

This look also was a break away for me since I used the BH Cosmetics Cool Matte Pallet, and BH Cosmetics Cool Shimmer Pallet. Both are reasonably priced and as you can see from the shadow look, pack a punch in color! I notice often times people put these sort of Indie brands down and in my personal opinion I contribute it to ignorance. If the product is used correctly, the correct primer is used, and application process is formal the product should be fine unless it really is shit, excuse my French.

Like any other blog post of mine, you guys can always swap the lip colors! If you do so please send me your recreation of the look presented here at thaeyeballqueen@gmail.com.

First off, when starting this look be sure to exfoliate, especially if you’re opting in for the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation! I started my morning routine with Fresh’s Rose Mask and allowed it to set for seven minutes. While not all moisture is added to my skin it helps to create a cleaner skin appearance when washed off. By the way, since I am sick and my nose is riddled with dry snot- I am living proof this mask works, oh and hey I also added Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream for added volume to my hair.

Primer is one of the easiest things to accomplish in makeup since it sheers out clear. Using my favorite primer, Hourglass’s N28, I applied the equivalent to a pump into my palm. I say the “equivalent” because my pump stopped working so I have to remove the whole contraction and rub the tube onto the palm of my hand. Once you have the pump or equivalent of pump ready to be disbursed, rub your hands together and just like a face moisturizer apply even across all zones of the face.

Generally you should let your primer set for 3-5 minutes depending on the thickness and purpose it serves to your skin. While letting my primer set I went ahead and saturated my Beauty Blender Pro in lukewarm water. After I had dampened the Beauty Blender, I proceeded to mixing my foundation with a thick creamy shimmer product, specifically the Elf Shimmering Facial Whip. By mixing the Estee Lauder foundation with the shimmer product it creates a more luminous base which screams Winter wonderland. By the time you have mixed the two together, or perhaps you already have a glowy foundation, your skin should have fully absorbed the primer!

Using the rounder side of the beauty blender I dipped it into the mixture on the back of my hand and began stippling it onto my skin. I like to start from the center of my face and drag it out towards my hairline, and I also prefer using light coats of product and building up wherever it is needed. While disbursing most of the product on my cheeks with nice and easy stippling motions, and sometimes patting on areas needing more coverage, I then took excess product and stippled it right onto my forehead, nose, and chin.

You guys know the drill- right after foundation I go contour happy, literally. There are so many different ways to contour so it is fun to change it up daily. Today I incorporated the method I used two days ago which involved applying the highlight then mixing in thicker concealer on areas that need the product most. This just avoids multiple layers being applied, and a less cakey appearance.

With my Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer, which happens to be my new found love, I highlighted my under eye area with large upside down triangles; my left jaw line to my chin, to my right jaw line; then stemming down from my forehead a |/ shape going straight down to my nose, connecting back to my chin. From the tube I squeezed and applied Makeup Forever’s Full Coverage Concealer to blemishes hidden under the highlight.


Once your highlight is placed move along to the contour! I contoured with my fingers, and with Cover Fx’s N100 Foundation. I wasn’t quite feeling brushes today. In fact for the highlight I used the doe-foot applicators right from the tube’s. At any rate, I drew a line with my finger under the natural hollows of my cheeks, right on my jaw line, and the sides of my nose!

Blending should be rather simple to do since it involves two motions: stippling, and circular motions. I used my ELF Ultimate Blending Brush for this and began working in the contour for the lower half of my face. Occasionally I wiped off my brush. After reaching the middle part of my face which is were the eye highlight should end I began with upward strokes for the cheek contour. This makes for a “lifted” effect. Then, I patted and blended the under eye for the most natural look possible. On areas I applied concealer I slightly stippled it on with harsher motions to make sure the product stayed in place. As for the nose and rest of the fact I continued with circular motions and followed the natural contours of my face!
