How to apply a frozen makeup look in a few easy steps

It’s nearly mid-October, which means Halloween is right around the corner. Needless to say, the hunt for a great costume has reached a boiling point. If the allure of elaborate makeup doesn’t appeal to you this year, consider simplifying things with this frozen-inspired makeup look. The video contains all the steps you’ll need to master the technique.
You don’t need to be a professional makeup artist to reproduce this frosted look because it doesn’t require precise brush strokes or color application. What are you waiting for? Gather your supplies and let go of your inhibitions, because this look is practically begging to be re-created. Don’t forget to act the part, throw on a jacket with a hood and practice your shivering skills.
- Isopropyl alcohol
- Alcohol-activated paint palette
- Sponges
- Frozen SFX gel
- Spatula
- SFX frozen crystals in various small sizes
- Spoolie
- White hair paint
1. Activate the colors in the alcohol-activated paint palette with isopropyl alcohol.
2. Dip a sponge onto the white shade in the palette, and pat the mixture onto your face.
3. Use another sponge to dab red paint near your eyes, nose, mouth and hairline area.
4. Repeat the same steps using the purple paint but this time around, be sure to add the shade onto your cheeks and lips.
5. Smear the frozen SFX gel over your face with the spatula.
6. Afterward, sprinkle the SFX frozen crystals over the gel.
7. Layer black paint from the palette close to your eyes, nose, mouth, cheeks and hairline. This step reinforces a hypothermia effect.
8. Now on to a few finishing touches. Dip the spoolie into the white hair paint and coat your lashes with the mixture. Run the same spoolie onto a few strands of hair around your face, cementing that frosted look.

Traditional makeup sponges never used to get any of the spotlight or attention. That was until the beauty blender was invented by professional makeup artist Rea Ann Silva during a makeup class one day!
