TheBalm Cosmetics Look Tutorial


Sultry matte lids, berry-stained lips, wintry cheeks with a hint of a glow. It’s a look that punches this disgusting polar vortex in it’s face. If ya can’t beat ’em, join ’em, and when it’s negative temps, I’m not even going to pretend I’m a bronzed caribbean goddess. It’s winter, I’m in the midwest, I’m pale and I’m ready to party with it.


This look tutorial utilizes 4 super-solid products from TheBalm Cosmetics. No BS-they’re all sogood.

I adore the matte shadows in the Meet Matt(e) Nude palette for creating cozy, sexy eyes. The InStain blush in Houndstooth is the perfect rosy/mauve that is winter-sexual. Mary-Lou Manizer has long been basically my favorite powder highlighter of life. Stainiac finally gets lip stains right and puts the power of the stain in an easy-to-use applicator.

I actually did my hair in these photos. Gasp!


Here I am, leading the pale whale express! Choo, choo!

It makes a beautiful eyeshadow too. TheBalm Stainiac Lip & Cheek Stain This reminds me of Benefit’s Benetint but it’s cruelty free, easier to apply and doesn’t have a rose scent. I have it on here.
