Blogmas 2014: Day 1 of Christmas Challenge - Let it Snow

Hello, ladies (and gentlemen, if any is reading this). I'm so excited to start with Blogmas and Christmas challenge today. Christmas challenge will be part of my Blogmas, but sometimes I'll also post two posts a day, so I hope you won't mind that. The first theme of my challenge is Let it Snow. As I hear it's already snowing in some parts of Slovenia, but not here, here's just raining. But I don't like snow anyway, except on nails. :) 
For the first theme I decided to do both, makeup and nails. I couldn't wait to show you what I did, because I really liked both creations. :)


Makeup 

White and blue are the colors I think of when it comes to re-creating "snow" on eyes or nails. Using only matte eyeshadows is a coincidence, but I love how blue matte eyeshadows look on me. Because I wanted a bit deeper look I combined blue and white with black eyeshadow in crease and outer V. At the beginning I took photos of a look without false lashes and later I applied them to see how the look will look with them. They actually make quite a difference, but I personally prefer the look without false lashes. 


For the cheeks and lips I went with quite nude shades. On my cheeks I applied my favourite blush Catrice Mandy-rine, which is a peachy shade and it looks so natural once applied on the skin. For the lips I went with nude combo, Aura lipliner 36 and Essence lipstick Natural Beauty.

Nails

I wanted to do a free-hand nail art for this theme, but when I received MoYou Festive 06 plate I knew I'm going to use it. I started with Essence Wild White Ways and then I did gradient on a tip of each nail with P2 Crazy Beauty. For special effect I layered each nail with Essence Icy Fairy. Snowflakes are stamped with Essence I Heart MY Blue Jeans and are from MoYou plate. 


Tell me, what do you think about my makeup and nails? Thank you for reading!
