Winter Wonderland Look

Today we had our first 'real' snowfall of the season!  As much as I love the warmer months, I missed the snow and the winter weather.  I was inspired to create a winter-weather wonderland look.  Being a warm seasonal type, I decided to keep most of my makeup 'warm' in tone.  I applied my regular golden brown based concealer/foundation shades, used NARS Orgasm blush and created a 'warm' neutral red lip.  I used MAC Chicory lipliner with Creme in your coffee lipstick.  For the eyes, I started with a warm base, using MAC Soba, but then decided to play around with a cool grey tone that matched the grey in my sweater.  MAC Grey Utility was the perfect match and choice.  I finished the look with black mascara.  I also decided to take a photo of this look in natural light facing a window where a lot of the snowfall had fallen.  I wanted the snow's reflection to play a key part in the  'look':

There is something very magical and dramatic about the winter months, especially when you have the element of snow and the elegant atmosphere of everything cold and regal.  I'd like to say that this is somewhat of a 'Snow Queen' look.  I really like that I can stay true to my warm base shades and still pull off this look :)

I still say you may be a cool. IMHO you look your best in cool colors based on your blogs.

I was dx'd in the years past via draping with results of Winter, deep and warm autumn and then a true spring and finally as striking spring Until just last week.... I was Determined to be a Bright Winter via draping with an analyst with 12 tones (4hours and very in depth analysis).

You are v pretty in most all colors (you and I share that we have an exotic ancestoral heritage; and can pull off many colors because of it); yet to my eye, you look better in cool colors. The Bright Winter shares color influence with warm season Spring, you may want to check it out.

Thank you for your feedback - I really appreciate it. I loved how you expressed the 'exotic ancestoral heritage' because I just got my DNA results from 23andMe and I am quite a mix of various things!!!
