I love 1930’s looks, but there aren’t many color photographs of icons from this era, so, I’m desperate for inspiration and I’m resorting to using cigarette cards. I’m actually really impressed with this look. It’s something “modern enough” for today. Here’s what I did to get this 1930’s inspired look:
FACE: Hey, when you’re drawn you’re going to have the perfect complexion! But, we don’t have that going for us. I applied e.l.f. All Over Cover Stick in Apricot Beige under my eyes. I then blended with a cosmetic sponge. I applied Paula’s Choice All Bases Covered Foundation in Nude with a makeup sponge. With a kabuki brush, I applied Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent to set foundation. With a medium sized blush brush, I applied e.l.f. Studio Blush in Pink Passion, a matte bright pink, to the apples of my cheeks.
EYES: I filled in my brows with Benefit Instant Brow Pencil in Medium. I applied e.l.f Mineral Eyeshadow Primer. For the eyeshadow, I used Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection in Comfort Zone, this is the green and neutral collection. On the lid, I applied the medium warm brown shimmer. Closer to the inner corner of the eye, I blended the light khaki shimmer shade. In the crease, I blended the darkest warm brown and lined my bottom lashes with this color. Under the brows, I applied the champagne shimmer. I lined the bottom water line with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil in Sin, a shimmering champagne. I lined the top and bottom lash line with Estee Lauder Artist Pencil in Softsmudge Brown. I curled lashes and applied a few coats of Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara in Black. I applied a full strip of Ardell Lashes.
LIPS: I lined lips with Avon Ultra Luxury Lip Pencil in Rosebud, a medium pink. I made the cupid’s bow “pointier”. Directly from the tube, I applied Clinique Different Lipstick in A Different Grape, a pinky-plum with a satin finish.
Now for a fragrance…I’m going with Guerlain l’Heure Bleue EDT.
What are your weekend plans? So far, I have none. The weather is supposed to be warm and sunny here. My husband has to work some and so do I. Not fun. I imagine that we’ll be getting a few last uses out of the grill and taking a little frug down to the waterfront to cool off. Frugs pass out when the weather exceeds 60°. Have a great weekend!
