Some of my favorite looks to see during the Winter season are the blue ones. I am always reminded of my favorite childhood stories, cold weather and of course, the snow. We rarely get snow here in Houston but I always get a chance to see icy blue makeup looks that are mind blowing. With the help of a fellow artist I wanted to show you some inspiration for the Winter Blue shades.

Here are three blue makeup looks you can rock this Winter!

Marc Jacobs Beauty is one of my very favorite makeup brands at this point.   After trying the Highliners and Shameless foundation it easily woke me up to why this brand is considered luxury.  When I heard about the  See-Quins my initial thought was, “Marc Jacobs wouldn’t just drop any old kind of glitter.”  I was right!

I picked up GLAM NOIR 84.   It stood out to me because the smokey gray color and how  high fashion the shade looked when I swatched it in Sephora.  It instantly screamed  “New Year’s Eve Party” to me so of course I had to have it.  It’s elegant but still daring and seems to draw you in when looking at it on the eyes.

I understand why they called these glitter pigments SEE-QUINS as well. When you put it on you’ll notice that the little  beads sit on top.  They definitely don’t look like traditional cosmetic grade glitter bits. Some will flatten out if you press it on to create a beautiful shimmer effect.  I absolutely love the finish.

 They are super glam to me and definitely capture the essence of Marc Jacobs Fashion for 2018.  There are two different editions and two different packaging finishes for them.  There is the 2018 Fall Runway Edition with more colors and the Glam Noir comes in the 2018 Holiday Edition with Gold Packaging.  You can get them for $28 a piece on the MarcJacobsBeauty website and Sephora.
