High Shine series: Frost

Continuing our week of High Shines, today we’re focusing on Frost. Frost is definitely a high shine, metallic silver. This isn’t ‘a look for the faint of heart, but I think it could be toned down for a nice night out.  The close-up eye photos today have a slightly blue/green hue, and I apologize for that. Sometimes the lighting doesn’t always work out in my favor!

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!

    Thanks 🙂 This is a fun series to do. This look was definitely different for me – too bad my husband’s on a business trip, he would have loved it!!
