Have A "Frosty" Summer

The summer heat is on,but you can get a frosty cool eye look by following these steps. 

Every now and then, I love to try to re-create a look from a movie,especially one that captures the eye and doesn't let go. I was mesmerized by the shimmering,icy look of "Emma Frost" in the recent X-Men First Class movie.

The role is expertly played by January Jones, who sports a retro,60-ish glamor, including teased blond hair, and pop pink lips, and silver rimmed eyes. The overall effect is villainously sexy.

For a purr-fect look I used several products. First, I brushed on Lancome's Lava all over,then on my lids I swept on Kitten Heel. I then used Urban Decay Snatch on browbone to add the "frost". This is a light, glittery pink that set off the color just right.

To define eyes, I then lined the inner "v" with silver eyeliner, and also waterline. Flash, a regal purple from Urban Decay, was then applied with a pointed brush as a liner.

For the same look you can use: Lancome Color Design Palette in Pink Envy $48
Available at www.lancome-usa.com  Sweep pale pink all over lids, then add the darker pink as lid color.

  I also recommend Aqua Eyes from Makeup Forever  Try the silver in 8L $18 at sephora.com a liner for inner "v" and to rim the inside of eyes.

Add a bit of "sugar" with a pretty pink pout. Once again, you want to keep this a retro 60's look so think pinks with a hint of white or silver.

 To capture the total look try Maybelline's  Maybelline's  Color Sensational Pearl Lipcolor in Pearly Pink.
