Shades Of U Contest: Holiday Look # 7 From Andrea

Here's a breathtaking interpretation of the Snow Queen look by Andrea from Buenos Aires, Argentina. The concept is hauntingly beautiful, and I totally dig the icy eyes and blood red lips. Andrea is a young lady who is obviously a very gifted artist.

When all the leaves have fallen, winter comes along and brings chilly winds, grey landscapes and hoards of snow. No need to fear though, holidays are around the corner! Snow, hot chocolate, presents, music, parties, Christmas trees, food and…her.

She waits with flushed cheeks and blood red lips. Her porcelain skin tingles with cold. She has frosty eyes which are pure white: snow flake covered lids and eyelashes like icicles. She is the Snow Queen
.








Andrea was also kind enough to include a pic of the products and tools she used for this look. She reckoned that since most of the products she used were from Argentina and Brazil, some of the readers would not be familiar with them.

Here's her note about the products:
I just wanted to apologize for using so many unknown brands! Natura is quite a big brazilian brand, and has three different 'branches' of makeup (Faces_ , Diversa & Unica) aiming at different age targets. Dinhora is a brand from Argentina and there are a couple of Australian brands as well (Sugar Baby, ChiChi Cosmetics & Red Earth). I included a pic of products used so you could get an idea. Thank you! And enjoy!


No need to apologize Andrea! If you can create gorgeous looks such as this, I doubt if anybody cares even if you used water color paints. You look beautiful!
