Inspired: Snow White

It has been an unusually snowy season here in Southern Illinois. There has been some form of snow or ice on the ground since January 4. And before that we had a pretty large snow in the beginning of December. I am not a big fan of the fluffy white stuff, or the cold for that matter. But I'm making the best of it! The December snow brought me a beautiful, snowy engagement session, SO BEAUTIFUL!
And during this bout of snow I drew some inspiration to do a makeup look based off Snow White. I decided to take my inspiration from Snow on Once Upon a Time, the show on ABC. At the beginning of January I was OBSESSED with this show, watched the 2 complete seasons and caught up on the first half of season 3. I am very much looking forward to the return of the show in March. 
The makeup & hair on the show are fabulous & the clothes are to DIE for! I want all of the things. Give them to me!

So without further ado. Here is the image of Snow I took my inspiration from:

She's got a fresh, natural face with pink flushed cheeks. A clean, wispy wing on her eyes. Not a whole lot of eyeshadow, but some. She has a very no fuss, fresh aire about her & I love it! 

Here are some images of the look I came up with! 

The emphasis of Snow's look is definitely her flushed cheeks and beautiful wispy winged eyeliner. She doesn't have much liner on the bottom lash line & she doesn't have on false lashes like most of the other characters. I simply used a volumizing mascara, and she doesn't appear to have mascara on the bottom, but I feel weird with out it, so I added it to my look.

I have been loving this white sweater from Macy's this season, I wore it to my Friendsgiving & to my Christmas Day & Night activies. It is so soft and comfortable yet still looks very nice. I love adding different bold necklaces or scarves to it to switch up the look. So much love for this piece. I thought it very fitting for my Snow White look. I also chose to add an arrow ring, also very fitting for the fiercely loving Snow. She loves her bow & arrows. The ring is from Maurice's. I'm 85% sure my necklace is from For Love 21, but I've had it for years so there really is no telling. Earrings and bracelet are Pandora. 

For products I used:
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Nude - under eyes & light handed highlighting - center of forehead, nose, & chin
NARS Laguna - very light handed contour around my hairline 
Wet 'n Wild Color Icon Blush Heather Silk - Apples of my cheeks, lightly down the bridge of my nose, & a light dash on my temples.
Sugar Rose lip balm - has a sheer wash of color. LOVE

I used Urban Decay Naked and Naked2 palettes for my eyes
I primed with UD primer potion in Eden, pictured below this image.
From Naked:
Virgin all over my lid.
Sin in the inner corder and brow bone.
And Naked LIGHTLY in the crease and lower lash line.
I used all of these colors very lightly to help achieve the clean, fresh look. I basically just wanted to create a tiny bit of dimension.
Can you tell my deep love for my Naked Palette? So much pan!
From Naked2:
I set my black gel liner with Blackout, a deep matte black. I love this color, so pigmented.

Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner, blackest black.
I started in the middle of my lid, close to my lash line and started drawing stroke out toward the outer corner, then back toward the inner corner. I then started working on drafting out my wispy flick. After I got all the ground work laid I went back and deepened the line. I try not to get too much product on the first go so it dries and sets quicker. After I finished both lines I went back and set it with Blackout from Naked2.
I then went for my Colassal Cat Eyes. I added a couple coats to my top lashes and then just a quick little swipe to the bottom lashes.
