FOTD: Ice Queen

I'm the worse at recreating makeup. I still have much to learn. Back in November I bought a magazine with the cover of an »Ice Queen« lady. I liked the cover so much that I decided to recreate it. Well, in the end I did more my own version, not a complete copy of the look from the magazine. I do like it, but I’m not 100% satisfied with it, I know I could do it better (but usually when I try to do something again. I just do it worse).


First I tried to do blue eyeshadow low as she wears it on photo, but I hated it on me. It just didn't look right. I decided to lift it up. Although it looked good in person, I hate how it looks on photo. I guess we can't have it all. I didn’t do such sharp end as she wears it, but I soften it. She doesn’t wear any false lashes on photo, so I didn’t add any as well, but I have a feeling that they are missing, I think this look would be better with them. Oh, and if you're wondering why dark blue eyeshadow isn't applied the same way on both sides it's because she doesn't have it applied the same way. Eyes aren’t my favourite, but I’m very satisfied with the lips.


On both sides she wear glitter on her temples and one side I think she has countered her temple with a blue eyeshadow and a glitter, but I decided to skip that. I used L’Oreal Lumi Base, because it gives such a gorgeous white glow to the cheeks, but on one side I also added a pearly eyeshadow to give it an extra glow.

    1. Hvala, Sanja. <3
      Ponavadi sem taka, ko si nekaj zamislim, pa ni na koncu ne gre po načrtih, sploh, ker je vedno lahko boljše. :)

  5. Re-creation is always hard ! I tried 1 or 2 times maybe to do something I saw in a magazine as well and I was so disappointed because it looked awful in comparison - I think we are to hard on ourselfs though :)
    You did a really good job and I love your eye make-up and your lips especially, they turned out great!

    Btw nice earrings ;) I have them too :D

  9. Okay yes, finally! I think I could manage to draw that on my forehead, pretty sure I can't do anything else and 100% sure I'd still end up looking like I rolled in blue glitter. LOL You're amazing at what you do, I love everything. :D And the earrings are super cute! :D
