Winter Chill

Hi everyone! I woke up yesterday, made myself breakfast had 2 giant cups of coffee in my favorite mug and was struck with an idea for a look. And it worked. It doesn’t often happen that the first try works out as perfectly as this did. But I ain’t mad it. Here in NEPA we got about 6inches of snow overnight and into the morning, which makes for a slow, lazy, comfortable start to the day…moving at a lazy pace when creating this is probably the best advice I can offer to any of you who recreate this with your own products. Taking your time to blend blend blend blend and blend more is really the key to any look. Anyhoo– let’s jump into it!

I rarely use blue shadows, and I never do cut creases because of the time and precision it takes. But seeing as it was a snowday, I had the time. Starting with a matte baby blue transition shade in and above the crease on a fluffy crease brush, build this up until the baby blue has feathered away as it gets closer to your brow. With a smaller denser brush, use a matte cobalt blue shade to further define your crease. Take your time with this step in particular, this shade will begin to carve out the shape for your cut crease, so tap gently into your eyeshadow, tap off the excess and then apply the shade to your lid. Now with a small blending brush, dip your brush into a matte navy shade. After tapping off the excess, begin in the center of your lid and brush the shade around your eye socket. This step took the longest for me. Again, take your time to build up the intensity and blend.

Now cutting the crease. If you’ve never tried a cut crease yourself, this step is make or break. Be patient when trying this, try a few techniques, brushes and product but they all matter. I start in the center of the lid and drag the concealer down, then work my way around the eye, use a small rounded tip concealer brush, and my Maybelline concealer

Before the concealer sets, I added a silver metallic shadow to the lid concealer, topped it off with a glitter and liner my lashes with a black liquid liner. I could have added liner after the silver shadow honesty, but I was feeling extra and dammit I love glitter.

Pop on a pair or pieced out lashes like the ones I have on here, add mascara to your lower lashline.
