This is such an adorable picture of Betty Hutton. Yeah, it made me, a grown woman, put in a bow in my hair. Here’s what I did to get a similar 1940’s inspired look:
FACE: With my fingers, I applied Paula’s Choice All Bases Covered Foundation in Nude. Under the eyes, I applied e.l.f. All Over Cover Stick in Apricot Beige and blended with a concealer brush. With a powder brush I applied Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent to control shine. On the cheek bones, I blended e.l.f. All Over Color Stick in Golden Peach, a warm bronzed peach shimmer. With a small blush brush, I applied Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Candlelight Powder down the nose and in a “c” around the brow bone.
EYES: Brows are tidy. I filled in my brows with Lancôme Le Crayon Poudre in Natural Blonde. With a large eyeshadow brush, I applied Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Honeymoon, a light wheat shimmer. I closely lined top lash line with Dior Waterproof Eye Liner in Trinidad Black. I curled lashes and applied a few coats of Estee Lauder More Than Mascara in More Black to top lashes and one coat to bottom lashes. I applied Ardell Duralashes in Natural.
LIPS: I lined lips with Jordana Lip Pencil in Nutmeg (not pictured), a light warm brown. Directly from the tube, I applied e.l.f. Lipstick in Voodoo, a warm rose. With a lip brush I applied Milani Buzz Worthy Lip Gloss in Beehave (not pictured), a clear lip gloss. I applied this to the bottom lip.
And Betty is wearing nail polish. A similar color is Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in Lady is a Tramp. Now it’s fragrance time. I’d like something floral but not sheer, like Estee Lauder Beautiful.
I’m still entertaining my Nashville guests and I’ll be doing that throughout the weekend too. What are your weekend plans?
