Icy-Blue Pink

I've been playing around with a lot
of new makeup colours and one of my
favourite shades right now is an icy-blue pink. 
Not everyone can pull this shade off -
especially if you have a very warm skin tone. 
However, for all you 'summer' and 'winter' seasons
and cool toned gals, this shade is for you.
I always prep my face the same way -
i start with Loreal's true match concealer
in N4 and then apply Laura Mercier's tinted
moisturizer in 'nude' - To even out my skin tone,
i lightly dust on MAC's refined golden bronzer
and then usually use Tawny blush by
Bobbi Brown with MAC's mineralize powder in 'gentle'.
To really emphasize the icy blue pink,
I applied MAC's swish as a base colour to
my shadow and then added it to the inner
tear-ducts once my eyemakeup was complete.
  I also used Whirl lipliner by MAC
and Covergirl's lipstick in 'iceblue pink':
This cool shade of pink looks lovely
when you pair it with other cool
toned colours, especially blues and
purples.  Have fun with this shade and
don't be afraid to try pink - its such a
feminine colour.  If the icy-blue pink
is not your colour and you're
very warmed toned, try a light, shimmery
peach shade - It looks fantastic if
you have that warm, spring colouring!!!
