Weird or wonderful? Ice cream make up is literally summer on a face

Love ice cream? Ok, silly question, of course you do. You’re human. But do you LOVE ice cream? Like, enough to paint your whole entire face with raspberry ripple then glue waffle cones and sprinkles onto your head? Instagram’s beauty queens do.

A new wave of MUA’s are seriously committed to the sugar-sweet look, using summer’s most delish dessert as colourful inspiration for ice cream make up.

What better way to pay your respects to the school summer holidays (aka the best time of the year, apart from maybe Christmas and National Chocolate Day) than to rock up to your friend’s BBQ fully decked out like a super-cute Mr. Whippy. Sure, it might turn heads, but it looks SO PRETTY.

Better still, why not throw a summer fancy dress party for you and your squad just so you can debut Instagram’s latest hun. It totally won’t be weird if you’re all painted with sugar syrup. OMG, that might even mean that some of it is edible?

The best news about this new trend is that you can actually hide snacks on yourself. Genius, right? (We see that sneaky doughnut you’ve popped on your head for later, @bunnyneedsmakeup…)

So, the next time you’re off to a party, or just want to play around with the brightest shades in your make up palette, use your fave ice cream flavour as your muse. In fact, you should probably just go and buy a big fat ice cream sundae for research purposes RN…
