A Wonderland of Winter White Makeup
As clean and crisp as new-fallen snow, white makeup can brighten up any wintertime beauty look. From a porcelain nail polish to a crystal-like lip gloss and even a milky mascara, here are some of our favorite alabaster cosmetics.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in 4 Snow ($23) is a silvery-white multiuse cream that imparts a gorgeous sheen and can be applied on eyes as an allover base, on top of the cheekbones as a highlighter or along the cupid’s bow to make any pout appear plumper.
Shu Uemura Eye Light Pencil White ($19) is like caffeine in a stick. This white liner contains both a buttery smooth matte and pearly tip that instantly brightens and opens up tired eyes. Apply the matte side to the inner rims and the pearlescent one along the tear ducts and under the brow bones to perk up peepers in a snap.
YSL Golden Gloss in 46 White Gold Quartz ($30) houses 24-karat white gold flecks that make lips sparkle with bling. Far from looking chalky, this white gloss goes on sheer to glide over any lip color.
Giorgio Armani Soft Lash Mascara Primer ($29) may look intimidating with its blanched appearance, but this lash primer dries crystal clear. Wear it alone for a natural daytime look, or prep fringe for color with the formula that lifts, separates, thickens and curls each individual lash.
Zoya Nail Polish in Snow White ($8) could be fairer than its namesake Disney princess. This rich cream polish instantly gives tips a modern look that’s as opaque as Wite-Out, only more chic and pristine.
Lancôme Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow Smooth Hold in Drape ($18) makes for a lovely everyday highlighter under the brow bones. Or try sweeping the glistening shade across the lids and along the inner corners for eyes like diamonds.
Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Bobby Dazzle ($19) is a dazzling liquid liner that’s perfect for adding a glitzy accent. Layer a strip of the metallic hue directly above a black winged line for a truly icy stare.
