Not Your Barbie’s Frosted Eye Makeup

When we think about frosted eyeshadow, we tend to think of some low points in our lives — namely, our insistence on mimicking our Barbie's pale blue shadow back in junior high. Talk about some unfortunate school pictures. But, since we generally feel like there's no such thing as a color that can't be worn well, we decided to call in an expert to show us how to modernize this frosty look.
Watch as makeup artist Bryan Feiss teaches Tara the secrets of how to ground the look and give it a grown-up spin. Icy blue eyeshadow turned out to be way easier to master than we thought — check out the video so that you, too, can learn how to master a Barbie-free frosted lid.
