My husband and I have a bet this year as to how many little Ice Princesses we’ll find roaming the streets on Halloween night, trick-or-treat totes firmly in hand. I think we could see a new record for most popular girl’s costume for the under-12 set. Every little girl I know in kindergarten has had her mind made up for at least a year, including our own daughter!
But why should the little ones have all the fun? Wrap yourself in sparkly tulle and organza and use these tips to create a spectacular Halloween look that will have your friends, family and guests absolutely frozen with awe!
First, let’s start with makeup. To create a cool, porcelain complexion, remember that your primer, concealer, foundation and/or powder should be a shade or two lighter than usual. You’ll want a vivid blue eyeshadow for your lid and crease – try Femme Couture® Eternal Color Intense Silky Shadow in Sapphire. Then add something frosty, like Sally Girl™ Mini Magic Eyeshadow in Enchanted as a highlight on your browbone, just underneath each eyebrow. Finish off your glacially regal stare with blue eyeliner and mascara. Try Palladio Precision Eye Liner in Electric Blue, then Ardell Ombré Lashes in Blue. Now, just add some light pink blue to your cheeks, and a little white eyeshadow to your forehead and around your eyes (a fan brush is perfect for this), and your face is complete!
For your royal hairdo, a simple braid will do, but here are a few tricks that will ensure the final result is extra cool:
First, brush your hair to one side, and use bobby pins to keep it in place. Now, curl several pieces at the top of your head and around your face (including bangs, if you have them). If you’re headed to a full night of Halloween revelry, be sure to use a tool that gives maximum curl retention, like the Ion™ Titanium Pro Curling Iron. Draw attention to your ‘do by clipping in long strands of colored synthetic hair to the beginning of the braid – make sure it’s heat-resistant, like Sassy Colors Clips in Royal Blue. Make sure that color shows through as you braid! Now, finish off with a bit of sparkle by adding DCNL Flower Rhinestone Spinners.
There’s no need to conceal those magical fingers on Halloween night! Give yourself the perfect manicure with China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Frostbite, then add FingerPaints® Nail Color in Amazing Glaze for super-frosty tips.
And, you’re ready to head out and freeze (or thaw, depending on your mood) the hearts of your Halloween subjects. Have fun!
