Bring it back to the Classics!

I love the old days, Greta Garbo, Marilyn, Jane Russell...the list goes on and on.  The best part about them is their makeup looks are timeless and can be worn on a daily basis still to this day.  Okay, well maybe not the Fire Engine red lips but the majority of the look is perfect no matter the occassion.  Here is a Classic Pin Up look channeling all the classic beauty icons.  This video is one of my longer ones because I go in to more detail about how I did my "face." & there I didn't name the products I was using because it doesn't matter who made the colors, only that similar colors were used. 

For the Eyes - Almost all the colors are Matte!
  1. Use a shadow that is a few shades lighter than your skin tone and blend it over the entire lid.  Then use another that is the same shade as your skin tone and blend that color from the crease to the brow.
  2. Next, use a matte medium brown in the crease, and a shimmery white right under the brow bone, in the tear ducts, under the lower lash line and right next to the side of your outer part of your eye.
  3. Wing out your black eyeliner using either Fluid (liquid) or gel
  4. Line the lower waterline with a white eyeliner pencil
  • OPTIONAL - use black eyeliner (pencil & see video) for the lower lash line
For your cheeks - Use and pink or coral blush on the apples of your cheeks

For your lips - Any fire engine red will do (I used Hard Candy's On the Prowl lipstick)

CONTOURING & HIGHLIGHTING - See Picture for all the spots....See Video for how to do it! haha
