White makeup products can help you achieve a myriad of different makeup looks, but when it comes to the holiday season, they’re especially useful for creating a snowy-themed eye or lip finish. From Jack Frost-inspired liner to ice queen contour and more, we rounded up the very best snowy-inspired makeup looks to copy ASAP, not to mention, the products that can help you get there.

Snowy Owl

This super textured white eye makeup look will allow you to channel your inner ice animal. The look is easy to recreate with a white makeup paint (we love the NYX Professional Makeup SFX Face and Body Paint Palette in Primary for this) and a detailed brush to flick on the pigment.

Snowflake Liner

Snowflake liner is a must-try for the holiday season, and this look proves that all it takes is a good white makeup product to get it right. We recommend using a white liquid liner to master the look, like the NYX Professional Makeup Epic Wear Liquid Liner in White.

Icy Butterfly

For a totally striking look, try this chilly butterfly-inspired liner tutorial. Use a long-wearing icey white pencil to sketch out the shape like the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Yeyo.

Ice Queen Contour

Go icy with your contour this holiday season like this sparkling look. To get the ultimate icy highlight, opt for the Maybelline New York Facestudio Master Holographic Prismatic Highlighter in Opal.

White Halo

If you want to rock a snowy look more minimalistically, try a white halo liner look. To get the precise lines, we suggest using a pigmented pencil like the NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.

Frosted Lashes

Snowy makeup is not complete without frosted lashes. To get the look, try painting your lashes with a white cosmetics paint, or opt for a white mascara (or mascara primer) like the L’Oréal Paris Makeup Voluminous Lash Boosting Conditioning Primer Mascara in White
