Hi Glitter Girls, it’s Jessie from Sweet Thing here to bring you another decade-inspired tutorial. This week we’re focusing on one of my favorite eras for beauty — the 1950s. With the war over, women worried less about frugality and focused more on fun! Their makeup reflected that this decade was all about glamour.
1. Matte skin was a must in the ’50s. Start by applying a matte foundation (I use Korres Wild Rose Foundation). Use a powder if you prefer. Next, apply under-eye concealer (I like Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage).
2. Define your eyebrows. Fill them in with a pencil, focusing on the arch. If you’re blonde, the pencil should be a few shades darker then your hair. If you’re a brunette, it should be a few shades lighter (I use Dior Brow Styler).
4. Sweep a light brown shadow over your eyelids, then apply a darker brown shadow to the creases and outer lower lash lines (I use Stila Eyeshadow in Grace and Espresso). Blend until it looks seamless.
5. Apply lots of black mascara (I prefer Rimmel London Lash Accelerator).
6. Place a few individual fake lashes on the outer corners of your eyes using tweezers (I use Ardell Dura Lash Individual Lashes). This highlights the winged eye and makes for a more glamorous look.
7. Line your lips with a nude or red pencil. Next, apply your favorite red lipstick (I’m wearing Revlon’s Orange Flip).
8. Apply a rosy-hued blush to the apples of your cheeks (I use Laura Mercier Blush in Orange Blossom).
