Ruby Keeler

I love this makeup look of actress, singer, dancer and Broadway legend, Ruby Keeler.  It’s from the 1930’s but it is still a great look for now. Here’s what I did to get this look:

FACE: I evened out my complexion with Shiseido Stick Foundation in O20 and blended with my fingers. Under the eyes, I applied MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC30 under the eyes with a concealer brush. With a sponge, I applied Rimmel Stay Matte

FACE: The complexion is porcelain and perfect. I covered up imperfections with MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC20 using my Bobbi Brown Concealer Brush. With the sponge include, I applied Lancôme Dual Finish in Matte
