Snow Queen, Second Try

In January I showed you my first try at Snow Queen make-up. It was pretty close to what I wanted, but not exactly. For the photoshoot with the finished outfit I did a second version of the look.



I used the same eyeshadows, but placed the outer wing higher up, used darker silver liner for brows (thank you Nina for bringing it for me all the way from Paris!) and different lashes. My main gripe with the first version were the lashes, but also the low wing made my eyes look a bit tired. For lips I decided to go for pink after browsing some inspiration pictures. The silver lips are cool, but take up too much attention. Light pink is natural and lets the eye make-up get the spotlight. I applied blush heavily to have a little frost bitten look and to have some more colour on the face.

There's also more white dots and I found my dotting tool so there are two sizes and they look very neat. I did some white markings because I felt like it, I think they work nicely! To compare, here's the first try:

 I'm very pleased with the shades, they make me think of ice and northern lights, just the type of elements this look should have! The little dots work nicely to add some crisp details and the lashes are a thousand times better than the ones I used for the first try.

I have no finished pictures yet, but you can see some behind the scenes snaps of the photoshoot here.

    1. Thank you! I'm much more pleased with the second one my self, but I might need to do the silver lips for some other look, they are so cool!

  2. I really love both looks. But somehow I prefer the first try. Maybe because of the grey lipstick. I think a combination of both looks would look even better!

    2. I think it would look great if you put the new make-up, but in combination with the grey-silver lips. Will let it look truly Snow Queeny :D

  3. Second one is way better, darker brows looks more "natural" and dots are wining combination. I'm also not the biggest fan of fake color lashes, so again in the second look I like lashes more.

  6. Tykkään tästä toisesta versiosta IHAN HULLUNA..!!

    Oon aivan pähkinöinä tällä hetkellä vaaleansinisiin / turkooseihin / kylmiin meikkeihin sekä noihin pieniin pisteisiin, joten tämä iskee ja kovaa! Sairaan hieno :))
