This 1940’s look of actress, Barbara Britton features a bold warm red lip. Here’s what I did to get a similar look:
FACE: I applied Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Foundation in Beige Clair and blended. For extra coverage under the eyes, I applied Covergirl Simply Ageless Concealer in Corrector. With a powder puff, I dusted on Coty Airspun Loose Powder in Translucent. With a blush brush, I applied NARS Blush in Orgasm, a shimmery pink-peach, to the apples of the cheeks brushing upwards.
EYES: Barbara is getting my nomination for best brows. Her brows are amazing! I filled in my brows with Lancôme Le Crayon Poudre in Natural Blonde. Eye makeup is minimal. With a large shadow brush, I applied Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Positive, a matte light beige, from lash line to brows. I lined top lash line closely with Estee Lauder Artist’s Eye Pencil in Softsmudge Brown. I curled lashes and applied two coats of Estee Lauder MagnaScopic Maximum Mascara to top and bottom lashes. I did not apply mascara to bottom lashes. I then applied a half strip of Ardell Lashes.
LIPS: Other than silly curled bangs, this look is all about the lips. Make sure lips are exfoliated smooth and moisturized. I lined the natural lip line with Jordana Lip Pencil in Natural, a nude pink-brown (not shown). I applied Besame Classic Lipstick in Carmine, an orange-red, with a lip brush. With the lip brush, I applied Milani Buzz Worthy Lip Gloss in Bee Rich, a sheer and shiny red.
Now for a fragrance, I topped this warm makeup look off with Estee Lauder Cinnabar, my go-to spicy fragrance.
Any weekend plans? We’re getting the house ready for another smooshed face dog. Cross your fingers for me! We should be adopting her next week. So, I’m going to go out today and purchase a harness, food bowls, etc. AND poor Frink looks like he has a flea allergy. I didn’t know fleas even lived in Washington, especially in October. Poor, guy. I guess with some pets, it only takes one bite and they can develop a bad reaction. So, enough of my pet talk (yeah, gross pet talk too). Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
