The recent, and thankfully, mild snowstorm had us thinking of the viral ‘Cold Girl’ Makeup look. So, what exactly is the ‘Cold Girl’ Makeup look? As the name indicates, it’s flushed winter skin that glistens and shimmers. Think Oona the Forest Fairy in the 80’s-tastic movie, Legend, with a modern touch. If you’re not familiar with this new makeup trend, we’re here to help you achieve the viral TikTok look with the wonderful products from Milk Makeup.
With five Milk Makeup products, you’ll be well on your way to achieving a natural flush and glowy skin. We will be using and highlighting a combination of classic Milk Makeup favorites and new product launches to achieve this opalescent look. Keep reading for steps to achieving the viral ‘Cold Girl’ Makeup look.
Step 1: Apply Hydro Grip Primer ($36.00) all over the face. The formula provides a radiant finish, locks in hydration, and grips your makeup onto your face for up to 12 hours. It boasts a shot of blue agave extract that forms an invisible layer to lock in makeup all day, smooths skin texture for an even canvas, and seals in moisture.
It also features hydrating hemp-derived cannabis seed extract to plump and smooth for blissed-out skin. Its antioxidant-rich properties also reduce inflammation and protect against free radicals and environmental stressors. This oil-free, silicone-free, green-tinted formula goes on clear to work across all skin tones and types.
Step 2: For blemishes or to highlight the high points of your face, apply Future Fluid Concealer ($29.00) to help cover, sculpt, and hydrate for a lightweight, crease-proof, and natural finish. Like AI for your skin, Future Fluid’s high-tech formula not only covers what you want, it works with you to address your specific needs thanks to our supercharged Hyaluronic AI Plant Complex.
Its cushiony, whipped creamy texture builds and blends easily with plenty of play time to completely cover dark circles, redness, and blemishes without settling into fine lines or wrinkles. Made with antioxidant-coated, finely milled pigments, its natural satin finish looks and feels like nothing on, so it covers everything but you and stays that way all day. Available in 30 seamless, super blendable shades made for an inclusive range of undertones.
Step 3: To achieve a natural-looking glow, apply Bionic Glow ($34.00) to highlight and bring radiance to your complexion. Available in two shades, VIRTUAL – Luminous Peach and REALITY – Luminous Bronze, this illuminator with skincare superpowers is a light, 90% natural liquid illuminator that seamlessly builds and blends to give your skin a smooth, natural-looking glow.
It’s infused with hydrating snow mushroom, reishi mushroom, and hyaluronic acid to help give you smoother-looking, plumper-looking skin. Its plant-derived vegan collagen helps improve the look of skin texture, elasticity, and firmness. Lastly, pea protein helps provide blue light protection from electronic devices.
Step 4: For blush, apply a Hailey Bieber-favorite, Bionic Blush ($22.00). Infused with hyaluronic acid, this 90% natural liquid blush can be blended sheer or layered for a more intense payoff. Get ready for a healthy flush of color that can be dialed up or down. The powdery finish layers seamlessly over other makeup and the buildable formula allows for fool-proof application. Like the above Bionic Glow, the Bionic Blush is also infused with hydrating mushrooms and hyaluronic acid that leaves you with a hydrated flush of color.
Step 5: Finish with Hydro Grip Set + Refresh Spray ($36.00) to lock makeup in place and provide a visible, breathable, glassy glow. An absolute favorite of ours, this makeup finishing spray has gotten us through some of last summer’s hottest days.
