Winter Blues Makeup Tutorial

First post of the new year! Hello my angels! How are you guys feeling? 2014 is going to be one of the best years of my life, I can feel it! I'm super excited for what's to come. What's to come? Who knows but I'm ready for it!

Today's post is a makeup tutorial, I was feeling inspired by the snow storm that hit us here in the northeast 2 nights ago. I really wanted to do this tutorial yesterday but I was frozen and  kinda red from shoveling the never ending snow that was in our big-ish driveway. Took forever to get warm again lol.

Our driveway covered! This isn't even the whole driveway. Me and my mom busted our butts shoveling yesterday haha. It was a great workout! 

Lots and lots of snooooow!!!

Let's get to the tutorial!

List of products used:
-Fluffy Blending Brush(here's an alternate)
-Sigma E30 Pencil Brush
-Sigma E55 Shading Brush
-Thin Angled Brush(here's an alternate)
-Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Naked(mine is from the original Naked Palette)
-MAC Eyeshadow in White Frost
-MAC Eyeshadow in Moon's Reflection
-MAC Eyeshadow in Deep Truth
-MAC Eyeshadow in Electra
-L'Oreal Lineur Intense Carbon Black Liquid Liner
-Benefit They're Real Mascara
-NARS Laguna Bronzer 
-OCC Lip Tar in Zhora

First with a fluffy blending brush, apply Naked eyeshadow on the crease, blending upward toward the brow bone. Doing is will warm up the look a little bit, it wont look so...1980's lol. Blue eyeshadow can be tricky sometimes!

Now using White Frost eyeshadow and a pencil brush, apply to the inner corner of the eye and just under the brows.

With a shading brush, use Moon's Reflection eyeshadow and apply it to just the middle of the eye lid.

Using the same pencil brush as before, apply Deep Truth eyeshadow to the inner third of the lid, as well as the outer third of the lid. Then using whatever shadow is left on the pencil brush, apply it to the crease. Now blend that well with the fluffy blending brush. If you find after blending that you lose some intensity of the light blue Moon's Reflection eyeshadow, just pack some more on!

Apply Electra eyeshadow to the lower lash line with a thin angled brush, then with the same brush apply Deep Truth eyeshadow to the outer half of the lower lash line.

Line the upper lash line with L'Oreal Lineur Intense Carbon Black liquid liner, then apply black mascara!

Use a bronzer to warm up the rest of the face since blue eyeshadow can be a bit much, especially if you're pale like me!

I used OCC lip tar in Zhora on my lips, it is a beautiful metallic peachy color with a bit of rose shimmer. You can use whatever peach or nude lipstick or lip gloss you like.

Here's the finished look!

What do you think? Please leave me feedback/suggestions in the comments below!

I hope you all are staying warm if you're snowed in, and if you're not snowed in then I'm coming over! It's freezing over here!

I love you guys, thank you for taking time out of your day to read this. Have a fantastic weekend! <3

xo, Michelle
