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 Pressed Powder in Transparent. With a fan brush and starting at the apples, I applied Wet n Wild Coloricon Blush in Mellow Wine, a terracotta shade.
EYES: I love 30’s fashion but I hate 30’s brows. In comparison, Ruby’s aren’t so bad. I filled in my brows with Benefit Instant Brows Pencil in Medium. I applied e.l.f. Essential Eyelid Primer in Nude. With a large shadow brush, I applied Lancôme Color Desgin Eyeshadow in Positive (not pictured), a matte sand, from lash line to brows. I blended Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Designer, a medium khaki green shimmer, from lash line to crease. I also lined the bottom lash line with this shade. I lined the entire top lash line with Estee Lauder Automatic Eye Pencil in Khaki. I lined the bottom water line with Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil in Sin, a shimmery champagne. I curled lashes and applied a few coats of Estee Lauder MagnaScopic Maximum Mascara in Black to top and bottom lashes. I applied Ardell Lashes.
LIPS: I lined my natural lip line with Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Liner in Tiramisu, a neutral brown. I applied with a lip brush, Besame Lipstick in Merlot, a satin neutral red. I love this color.
Now for a fragrance…I’m in the mood for Clinique Aromatics Elixir, so that’s what I went with. I think it fits this look – rose & moss.
It’s supposed to be a cooler and rainy weekend. This is expected for this time of year. I need to stock up on cozy scented candles and sweater tights. What are your weekend plans? I don’t know if I have any yet. We may be going to Oregon tomorrow, we may not. I’m inspired by Ruby so maybe I’ll watch 42nd Street this weekend!
