Colorful Winter Wonderland!

I created this look for a competition by Makeuptalk.com/Sugarpill Cosmetics. For the competition I had to create a look inspired by something that reminds me of a colorful winter wonderland! For me, the most beautiful thing I know about the winter months, is the sparkly, magical night sky, filled with gorgeous stars! 😀 That’s mainly what inspired me to do this look. The other thing is the imagination of Santa Claus crossing this winter sky, at night.

As you can see I used the colors red, black and white on my eyes, which represents Santa Claus. I aslo wanted the lips to match with that. To add some sparkle to the look I used glitter to create the stars. I thought that since the theme was a colorful winter wonderland, the stars could be in many different, Christmassy colors!

How to:

  1. Start off by applying a primer to your forhead
  2. Apply foundation over it
  3. Conceal any areas you feel like concealing
  4. Set the foundation with a powder
  5. Apply a primer to your lid and up to your brow.
  6. Cover the lid with a red eyeshadow and bring it a little bit higher up than your crease
  7. Cut the crease with a black colored eyeshadow
  8. From each side of the eye, create a soft line with a grey eyeshadow, up to the hairline. This is to outline where you want the black “sky” to go.
  9. Place stickers of stars in many different sizes in between these two grey lines.
  10. Follow the grey line on the outside of the eye, with a black eyeshadow and fill in the space where the stars are, with the same color.
  11. Use a grey eyeshadow to blend the black toward the inner part of the forhead, to create a smooth transition to the skin color.
  12. Remove the stickers and fill in the empty space with a white pencil liner, using a small, pointed brush.
  13. Apply a glitterbase over the white.
  14. Then, with a small, angled brush use loose glitter in different colors and apply it over the glitterbase. Now, you should have some beautiful, sparkly stars
  15. Apply a silver glitter liner close to your upper lash line and wing it out. Put some loose silver glitter on top of this line
  16. Create an even smaler line with a black liquid liner and wing it out twice, like it shows in the photo.
  17. In the little gap between the two black, winged out lines, apply a white base. Set this with a white eyeshadow.
  18. Fill in your upper – and lower waterline with a black eye pencil and set it with a black eyeshadow.
  19. Smudge some black along your lower lashline.
  20. Apply mascara and false lashes and your eyes are done
  21. Remove any glitter fallouts from your face with tape and makeup remover.
  22. Apply primer, foundation and powder to the rest of your face.
  23. Use a matte rosy pink blush and a matte highlight.
  24. Contour your face
  25. For the lips, you can start by outlining them with a red lip pencil and also fill them in with this pencil
  26. Apply a red lipstick in the same color as the lip pencil
  27. To make them look sharp and perfect, go over the edges of your lips, with a concealer.
  28. You’re done! 😀
