Frosted make-up

Oh, Tilda. The icy eyes, those frosted lips, the whole darn ethereal look you're working, it's so next season. You make it seem so easy. Is it any wonder there is a sudden rush on frosted make-up across the land? All of a sudden, otherwise sane women are reaching for chilly whites, pinks and blues. They know not what they do. Frosted make-up is not for the shaky of hand or wonky of brush. It must be applied with precision and boldness. Wear it like you mean it or it'll look a hideous mistake.

Apply as little base as possible, then have a play. The eyes are the easiest place to wear frosted colours, and the most important thing is layering. You want to end up with a block of colour that also has depth. Apply shadow, with a brush, over the entire eye area, right up to the lash line. Wet your brush and draw a line of colour along the bottom lash line. Next apply black mascara (but not eye liner). A dusting of shadow to the tips of your lashes gives the full Narnia look, but it's best to keep the lips simple, either with a touch of balm or a gloss with a hint of iridescence. Turkish delight anyone?

I'm not a huge fan of it. Well, I think it looks good on pale people, but on me since I'm asian and not porcelain colored, it makes me look sort of like a ganguro girl instead:

Which isn't exactly the same look...

Some make up is for runaway only, and this frostbite thing is for sure....

People have to realize that what works on runway doesn´t work in real life, so all you can do is to adapt whatever you like but do some adjustments so that you don´t look like you are sick.

Forgot to add, the make up done at runways is a part of a concept that starts with what the designer wants to express trough the clothes and what is choosed for hair and make up is all a part of that concept.

Rarely the makeup itself looks good if it´s not part of that whole.

You bet!

pale allways pulls out the worst in most people natural skin tones, not to mention dark shadows... :p

As for using white, my makeup mentor once told us that white is for clowns only...

I fear I'm drawn quite strongly to this... already I love pale/pastel shadows - but in matte, I balk at shimmer... possibly due to shimmer trauma involving beige, which (in my opinion) is the worst of the bad by far...

You might like Linda Cantello's matte baby blue eyeshadow "Later"

I like this look....the pale skin and the icy pastels

Although, if I was to do it...I'd water-down the shadow a bit
