Frost Bitten Beauty From myface.cosmetics


ICE, ICE BABY . . . rock the ultimate snow queen makeup looks this Christmas with ice cool, frosted glamour from myface cosmetics. FREE with purchases over £15, treat yourself to a myface makeover with a festive bling box that includes a full size Lil’ bling nail polish, high def eye pencil and one hit wonder lip gloss . .. worth over £25!!

For makeup that says ‘frost bitten beauty’ follow these steps from myface.cosmetics artistic director, Kay Montano . . .

Step 1: apply the high def eye pencil black along the top and bottom lashes and in the lower rim. smudge slightly with a small blending brush or a cotton bud to create that sexy lived-in look - the makeup is meant to be smokey and sultry. at the outer corner take the line out and up slightly to elongate the eye and really emphasize the feline shape

Step 2: molten metallic nails are THE trend for winter so go for high impact, ethereal colour with a coat of Lil’ bling in Diamonds and Pearls. sweep the easy application brush over nails for a wash of ice cool, metal chrome – and for added bling match nails with eyes using the pigment packed, blingtone eyeshadows

Step 3: to add to the frost effect, add a wash of shimmering sparkle to lips with the One Hit Wonder lipgloss in Diamonds and Pearls. the pale, ice cream, sheer colour resembles a new fallen crystal snow in the morning sun, adding opulent shine with just 'one hit'

Kay’s top tip: build up colour pigment on both nails and eyes for a high impact evening look by layering both the blingtones and lil’ bling nail chromes
