HOW TO WEAR FROSTED EYESHADOW?
The sparkle, the individuality, the statement – it all plays an essence in the empowerment of wearing something bold and fun. So, here are some steps which you need to incorporate, if you’re opting for a frosted look.
For this look you definitely want to prep your eyes with a primer, this will stop the shadow from falling. Next, apply your chosen frosted shadow using your fingertips. Start from the inner edge of your eye and sweep your finger towards the outer edge to get that full-on frosted shine.
To finish, take a small fluffy brush to blend the shadow from the lid to the socket and way up to the brow. Feeling adventurous? Take a deep frosted shade and work it into the crease to smoke out the eye.
Achieving the coveted finish is more than just picking up a shimmery shade. There are two main things to consider: where you place the product and what type of shine you are working with. With this frosted trend you need to blend while melting the eyeshadow up into the crease and blending it out seamlessly, whereas with a conventional application of a glittery eyeshadow, you would use a separate crease color, liner, and highlighter.
To give this frosted eye look a more contemporary feel, apply lots of mascara. Layer it up, this will help giving a balance of punk to the super pretty frosted texture. Take cues from the celebs looks who have flawlessly crafted a pale shimmery shadow with a slick of bold black liner and lashings of mascara.
We say go all out with the 1990s vibe. Work a natural matte base and contour with bronzer. For lips, opt for lip liner and a topcoat of gloss. Not only will the whole look be cohesive but the game of texture – frost, matte and gloss – will make a more
fascinating make-up moment. As no matter what color you choose as your base, make sure your “frosting” has that signature cool tone.
