I love this promo pic of 1930’s actress and showgirl, Toby Wing. The colors are wonderful. Her outfit is very J.Crew, don’t you think? Here’s what I did to get this Toby inspired look:
FACE: Like all Old Hollywood babes, the complexion is perfection. With my Elizabeth Arden Foundation Brush, I applied Lancôme Absolue Foundation in Ecru 10. To conceal under eye darkness, I applied with my Bobbi Brown Concealer Brush, Covergirl Ageless Concealer in Corrector. To set foundation, I applied Cover FX Setting Powder in Translucent with a powder brush. With an e.l.f. Fan Brush, I applied a small amount of Wet n Wild ColorIcon Blusher in Heather Silk, a medium pink shade. I applied this shade “high” on the apples of the cheeks.
EYES: I am not a fan of thin 30’s brows, you guys know that. I filled in brows with Lancôme Le Crayon Poudre in Natural Blonde. I brushed brows in place with a spoolie. With my fingers, Shiseido Hydro Powder Eyeshadow in White Lights. This is a sheer pearl shimmer (not pictured below). With a large shadow brush, I patted on MAC Pigment in Kitschmas, a silvery mauve. I applied this shade from the crease to brows. On the lid, I blended with a medium shadow brush, mark Eye Shadow in Minx (not pictured), a shimmery cool taupe. I lined top lash line closely with NARS Pencil Eye Liner in London, a matte gray. I curled lashes and applied a few coats of Hourglass Film Noir Mascara. I then applied Ardell Duralash Accents/false lashes.
LIPS: I filled in most of my lips with NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Bloom, a pretty berry fuchsia. Directly from the tube, I applied Milani HD Advanced Lip Color in Premiere Plum, a shimmery berry shade.
Now for a fragrance, I want a pretty oriental with plum and rose, Natori EDP. And look at those nails! Don’t forget a nail polish! I recommend Essie Nail Polish in Big Spender, a red-violet pink with a satin finish.
