Shimmering Icy Winter Blue & Charcoal Grey Makeup Tutorial

Who says blue can’t be elegant? Naturally a vibrant, rather obnoxious blue, isn’t every one’s cupcake topper, however when the correct tone mixture is selected such as a muted deep charcoal grey PAIRED with icy blue shadows, things can get a tad freaky ;). There is such things as COMPLEMENTARY hues! Over matching can be detrimental to the final look, thus forth making that “clown” and “obnoxious” vibe flow out, here is where complementary hues come into play. They’re not exactly alike, but they ENHANCE each other through the usage of different color spectrum’s. Think of pink toppling over green, OR yellow fading into purple– both colors are opposites, but bring out the best in each other! The question here is, how does one make icy blue “pop” without the typical blue/pink or blue/red combination? Well, I just started it above my friends, a similar yet complementary shade of grey, after all, silvers and icy blues fall in the same trap of “wintery hues”. While you might be sittin’ here thinking, “WINTER? Lilleeee, come on! We haven’t even reached Halloween yet?!, why does wintery colors ONLY have to be worn during the snowy months? Here’s a thought, BE YOU, and rock what feels best, that day, that moment, and that hour.
