Frosty Eye Makeup Is Back and More Flattering Than Ever
While you might remember frosty blue eyeshadow from a '90s look gone wrong, frosted makeup is back — and it’s way more flattering this time around. Check out this surprisingly subtle and wearable look from @nikki_makeup for proof! Then follow professional makeup artist Jonet Williamson’s four-step guide to recreating it below.
  • STEP 1:

    Apply a Taupe Shadow All Over Your Lid

    To start off this makeup look, Williamson applied a dark, taupe eyeshadow all over her lids and brought it up to the crease. She also applied this shade on the outer part of her lower lash line. The color, Williamson explains, helps make the forthcoming frosted eyeshadows stand out more.

  • STEP 2:

    Apply a Cream Sparkling Eyeshadow

    Using a packing shadow brush, apply the NYX Professional Makeup Diamonds & Ice, Please Shadow Jelly in Diamonds in the Sky, a purple hue with blue reflective shimmers in it, all over the lid. To get the most pigmentation from this jelly-textured eyeshadow, Williamson advises pressing the shadow onto the lids and then blending it out towards the crease to create an effortless fade. You’ll also want to apply this color on your lower lash line on top of the taupe shadow.

  • STEP 3:

    Finish the Inner Corners

    Next, Williamson used a detailed fluffy brush to apply the NYX Professional Makeup Diamonds & Ice, Please Shadow Jelly in A Lister Silver in the inner corners to brighten up the eyes. Any shimmering silver shade will work for this step.

  • STEP 4:

    Add Mascara

    Finally, finish off the look using your favorite volumizing mascara on your top and bottom lashes. Our current pick is the L’Oréal Paris Air Volume Mega Mascara because its lightweight formula instantly lifts and volumizes without clumping.
