      Well this is one of my favourite "icy/cool" looks but bear in mind I'm fair so I'm not sure if the colours will work on you! Personally I think this kinda look calls for a lot of shimmer & highlighters.


      blusher - pale pink with tons of shimmer

      I use: Benefit Dandelion, layered with Tony & Tina Cosmetic in Nude (shimmer), layered with Stila AOS loose powder in *6 (pink glitter) or *9 (brown/nude glitter)

      Effect is a shimmery but very "glowy" look on your cheeks.


      e/s - you can try a pink or lilac eye

      I use:

      Jane It's a Girl as base, I Nuovi Fairy as Wash, I Nuovi Fever in crease + Black eyeliner (pink eye) or

      Jane Sugar Daddy as base, I Nuovi Fairy as Wash, I Nuovi Uranus in crease + Black eyeliner


      The black eyeliner is impt 'cos it transforms what would be a simple sweet day look into a more "drama" look. Purple would also be more "icy" than pink 'cos pink by nature makes you look sweet.


      lip color - any glossy /wet pink or light purple lip gloss (depending on your e/s)


      HTH!

          They are more commonly used as eyeshadows (only the eye-safe ones please ), lips (only the life-safe ones), and as cheek colours. You can also mix some into nail polish.

          vonvonne's eyeshadow suggestions are great, I love I Nuovi Fairy too!

            Thanks so much for the suggestion, vonvonne and poochi. Caryll, no problem.. you will be the first person i tell... besides, you already look very pretty without make-up. I love love love your long and silk hair, so unlike mine which is like dry grass.

              Have fun trying out the colours & mixing & matching to create diff looks & see what you like. That's the fun in playing with make-up!

              I agree with poochi! I Nuovi Fairy is a really versatile shade I like to use, it's a shimmery purplish pink shot with silver glitter. The shade can be used as a wash to match pink, purple, blue, grey & even green e/s.

                      usually if they've storewide discount they'll be ads in the papers. as for the 10% off, it's by luck i guess. 'cos sometimes i'll be walking around & i'll spot it. maybe you can follow the make-up promotions thread to know about the latest promotions.
