Tutorial: Icey Blue

Another look using mostly L'Oreal HIP Metallic duos. I was able to snag the last missing duo, Magnetic, last week at CVS. This one disappointed me a bit. Unlike the other four eyeshadows I did a review on, Magnetic seemed to be a bit messy and glittery. It was quite bothersome how glitters kept falling off my face. Anyway, I know you can clean up the mess by picking it up with scotch tape or brushing it off with a clean brush, but when you're crunched for time, you'd rather not look for that scotch tape.

I wore this look at another friend's dinner birthday party. I paired it with a pink lippie which I currently don't remember which one I've used. It was a bit Barbie-esque for me.

What I Used:

EYES:
MAC Soft Ochre p/p
L'Oreal HIP in Platinum e/s
L'Oreal HIP in Magnetic e/s
L'Oreal HIP in Showy e/s
Milani Snow Frost e/s

















I've gathered my stuff up for the sale. Now, I have to go check my brush stash and see which one I'm willing to part with. But that's going to be a toughie.
