Despite the number of school photos worthy of a squealing in our mother's living room, the frosted makeup trend has eluded the 90s and has followed us into the new millennium. Regardless of your complexion, white or silver rocking makeup is downright difficult. If you use too little, it's barely noticeable. And if you use too much, it looks like you washed your face with baby powder and forgot to rinse yourself. The good news is that can look up to date and pretty if you keep a few things in mind.
Turn Down Your Lighting
Lesson number one: less is more, especially if you want to sculpt your cheekbones. According to Streeters Makeup Artist Frankie Boyd "The highlights should be used to add dimension and luster to the face, not to warn the traffic you are crossing the street." So, if you want to try this winter, remember that a little goes a long way and stay away from the white shades.
Brilliant and shiny cheekbones are never a bad thing … except when you went to the sea with a cream or powder. Alternatively, you can also apply on small parts of the face, such as the inner corners of the eyes or under the brow bone.
Ditch the powders
Speaking of powders, there is a reason why you do not see many experts using frosty shadows on their clientele. Not only are they in disorder; they also make the skin more oily instead of smooth, even with a primer underneath.
"I have not used frosty eye shadow to showcase the brow bone for more than 10 years," says Boyd. Instead, "try using a cream highlighter to accentuate the eyebrow.The cream will immolate a clean, radiant skin that reflects light.Keep the excitement of the shadow Eyelid on the lid of the eye will give you a more modern and effortless look. "
So, if your snow-white highlights seem crazy, but you still want to freeze, where should you apply makeup instead? Boyd says to start "under the brow, between the forehead and the hairline, the bridge of the nose, Cupid's bow and on the chin."
And be sure to use a small but firm brush, so that you can actually see the color gain. Overall, there is not much difference between your frosted makeup and everything else on your vanity. Apply in small amounts and if your skin is in agreement with it, stick to liquid formulas or cream. Boyd swears by The Metallic Shadows of Natasha Denona and Urban Decay's MoonDust Palette for his famous clients, but if none of them sting your interest, there are three other options, depending on the complexion.
