Makeup Tutorial: Vintage Makeup

Need the perfect look for your newest vintage threads? This 50s inspired makeup tutorial is just what you've been looking for (oh, it isn't? well hopefully you'll enjoy it anyway).

There are 3 main things to remember about creating a vintage look:
1. Dark top eyeliner
2. Extend liner outward
3. Red lips

If you can pull of the fire engine red lipstick. I say do it. I was going to home depot after I snapped the pictures for this tutorial so I decided to go a bit less bold (smart move, I know). 




*bareMinerals matte foundation in light 
*LORAC blush in pink rose
*Too Faced eye shadow in pink cheeks
*combo of  Sephora brand high precision liquid liner in black and Bobbi Brown long wear gel liner in caviar ink
*Buxom Lash mascara in blackest black
*Bobbi Brown metallic lip color in ruby

helpful hints: keep your foundation matte and use a bit of neutral shadow. either beige tones or a bit of light gray. skip the lower eyeliner/mascara altogether or keep it light. the emphasis should be on the upper lash line and your lips. add a dusting of pink blush and you're good to go. 

hope you enjoyed the tutorial! let me know if you have any ideas/requests for future makeup posts!
