White Winter Inspired Makeup Look


Learn some tips on how to create this white-winter inspired makeup look, along with a DIY icicle inspired necklace.

October is a time when I make a creative look like this. This brings me back to the time I was on college, writing my thesis about makeup looks inspired by paintings (A few examples can be found here). As I mentioned in my previous post, here’s the full makeup look I mentioned in the DIY icicle inspired necklace tutorial. This makeup look was more on the lighter tones with an illuminance. I made a mixed foundation, 3 shades lighter than my skintone, with a highlighter. I then applied it all over my face and neck. The makeup look is simple, it’s just a matter of more highlighting in the areas like the bridge of your nose, cheeks, chest and shoulders. I didn’t put any eyeliner on, using only false lashes instead to give my eyes a flattering look. Using a sponge and white face paint, I dabbed it around my forehead to blend in with the white color of my hair. Speaking of my hair, thanks to my mom who braided my hair to create this braided crown hairstyle. I think it looks nice with the concept!


I also made this icicle hair piece using the same procedures as with the necklace. I just needed to apply it on a flat surface instead of a bowl. I glued a big bobby pin onto the finished icicle hair piece, so that I could clip it on my hair. white-winter-inspired-makeup-look-3 white-winter-inspired-makeup-look-4

I also painted my nails with white glitter (tutorial here) and dabbed some white face paint onto my fingers for more of a winter frost look. Check out this similar dress that matches this look!


Anyone here like to create an avant-garde makeup look for Halloween, event, or occasion?
