Carnival is approaching with its colours and its joy. Here in Italy we tend to fancy dress in this part of the year rather than Halloween. Or, to be honest, we dress up with fancy clothes both during Carnival and Halloween, but we keep the spooky stuff for Halloween and the funny one for February. I used to wear incredible costumes when I was little, and this year I wanted to do something special, something magical…
My most recent obsession isn’t Frozen, but Elsa is still fascinating me. I mean, she has incredible powers, she’s almost a water bender. Wait, headcanon accepted! Anyway, I decided to make my own version of Elsa, but I did both versions, when she’s a scared princess, bound to be queen and totally insecure about what she’s going to face, and the powerful ice queen, fierce and cold, and fashionable.
From one version to the other I did just some minor adjustments, like the eye and the lips make up, but the base is basically the same. During Let It Go she hasn’t the time to magically re-apply her foundation, let’s be honest! She simply changed some particulars, and we all know it.

The first version is more natural and really close to a no-make up make up, because it’s almost impossible to detect any trace of any product, except for the eyes. The only trace of sparkle is a bit of Essence’s pigment over the black eye-shadow to give a royal-ish touch.
The ice queen version is really bolder. I applied the cream eye-shadow directly on what I previously had on and then blended on it an enormous quantity of purple eye-shadow. I then re-applied the black eye-shadow as eye-liner and Illamasqua’s Gleam on the apple of my cheeks. Oh, I obviously added a lot of colour on my lips!
What do you think about this version?
I’d like to thank my friend Monica for the white wig, it was reaaaally helpful!
