FOTD: Snow Queen (Halloween Series)

Since I made my first Snow Queen look in January, I wanted to create a new, better one. This year’s Halloween season really inspired me, and although you probably won’t see very crazy face painting creations on my blog, I’m really happy where my way of creating “creative, non-everyday makeup” is going. At the moment there are 7 more looks I want to do for Halloween. I plan to do tutorials for most of them, I just hope nothing will come in way and I’ll manage to realize all my ideas. 

Back to my Snow Queen look. As always, I started with the application of foundation and filling in my eyebrows. No matter what kind of look I do, these are always first two steps. Then I go on eyes. 
Photo 1: I took a pointer brush and with a dark blue matte shade I draw a line in my crease. This way I outlined where I wanted for my eyeshadow to end. In outer part I connected the line with my eye.
Photo 2: I deepened the line in crease and also made a longer flick in outer part. I filled the flick with dark matte blue eyeshadow. If you make any mistake (for example to higher line), just use a thin or angled brush and apply a bit of concealer on the place you want to fix it.
Photo 3: All over the lid and in inner corner I applied a white creamy eyeshadow, which was my base for a blue eyeshadow.
Photo 4 and 5: On the lid, over the white base, I applied a bright blue eyeshadow, and in inner corner I applied a white matte eyeshadow.
Photo 6: Under my eyes I applied a dark blue matte eyeshadow. On my waterline I used a white jumbo pencil
Photo 7: Above the crease, where the blue eyeshadow ended, I first applied a white creamy eyeshadow as a base and then I went over it with a white powder eyeshadow. I felt like I need to highlight this area, because without it this look was missing something.
Photo 8: In the end I made a thin line with eyeliner and then applied false lashes. I also used the mascara. By my looks false lashes are always the last step, because no matter what I do, they never stick nicely in inner corner. At the beginning I manage to stick them okay enough to take few photos, but with time they can unglue and that’s the reason I always apply them in the end.

Let’s see what I did on my face. I already mentioned that I always first apply foundation and then I do my eyebrows.

When I did most of the work on eyes, I applied a white creamy eyeshadow from Flash palette on areas where I wanted to highlight my face. I blended it in with a makeup sponge. Then I set everything with a setting powder. I contoured my face with a light blue eyeshadow (I actually mixed white and blue eyeshadow from Flash palette, because I wanted a colour that would match my eyebrows, but they didn’t really blend even, probably because I applied setting powder underneath). I didn’t use any blush, but I highlighted my cheeks, high point of my cheeks and my nose with champagne shimmery highlighter. Then I thought I could also contour the highest point (this doesn’t sound okay) the upper part of my nose, so I applied a bright blue eyeshadow with a blending brush from my brows till the point, where the dark blue eyeshadow on eyes has ended. The final step when everything was done was blue studs. I bought few blue and green studs in Müller. They aren’t the cheapest, but they can be used multiple times. They already have glue on them, but after the first usage the glue doesn’t hold anymore, so then I usually use lash glue to glue them on. 

Considering the lips, I started with a bright blue shade (I mixed blue and white eyeshadow from Flash palette). In inner part of the lips I applied a white eyeshadow. Then I outlined my lips with blue shade, because I wanted to make it look darker and I wanted to achieve a gradient look from dark blue to lighter blue and white. I took my time to blend it nicely together with white shade. In the end I used pearly white eyeshadow and applied it in inner part of my lips. 
P.S. If you're going to wear blue on your lips for Halloween, don't smile too much, because it'll make your teeth look yellow. ;)

There are few details that I’m noticing now on photos and I would fix them if I’d do this look again (for example, I blended white highlighting shade really high, but not on the crown of my head, so it looks strange now), but overall I’m pretty satisfied with it. Now my plan is to do an Ice Queen looks with less blue and more white. Will see how this will go.
