Hallo my dears – this is my second tutorial which will be made into a permanent tutorial and a podcast/video shortly. This is a classic 50s look – dark strong brows, red lips, pale skin and dark black eyeliner in about 15 mins.
Chanel Le Blanc De Chanel Primer
Rouge Bunny Rouge Aquarelle Foundation (a few shades lighter than skintone)
Benefit Badgal Mascara
Blinc Black Liquid Liner
NYX Cream Blusher in Red
Illamasqua Pencil in Spell
Nars Pencil in Black Moon
Revlon Matte Lipstick in Really Red
YSL Palette in Tresto D’Afrique
Anastasia Brow ex-press
Here we go!
Step 1: Put hair in rollers – curly hair is a must!
Step 2: Put primer on the skin. We want a nice, white base.
Step 3: Apply foundation – lighter than the skintone for that pale and interesting look:
Step 4: Apple a matte, ivory/beige all over the eye:
Step 5: Take the matte mid brown for the contour:
Apply in the crease:
Step 6: Use a inky black liquid liner to draw a line:
Step 7: Use a pencil in black to line the lower lash line:
Join the corners up:
Step 8: Add mascara!
Step 9: Do your brows. I am using a stencil for a full brow as I want an exaggerated effect:
Fill in with brow powder:
Apply to the ends too:
Full defined brow – adjust as you please:
Stage 10: Dot the red blush along the cheeks:
Step 11: Dot some foundation on the lips to create a base:
Draw a lipline:
The top lip in the 50s style is very rounded rather than angular so I made the lip quite curvy like a heart shape:
Use a lipbrush and add the lip colour:
Add another coat:
Clean up edges with a sponge with a bit of foundation:
Step 12: Take out rollers and add a fascinator or some feathers for the 50s look!
I am madly in love with my fascinator which I found on ebay. It looks like its just a lot of fine feathers stuck on a hair comb but I adore it! Might try making my own…
There will be more photos in the tutorial that is converted to a podcast/video and is uploaded to the Tutorials page (see the top navigation bar!)
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Let me know if you have any ideas for the next one!
