This is one of my favorite portraits of Jean Peters. It is the color combo. I love lime and hot pink together. Also, it’s a beautiful and simple look. Timeless. And her brows should win a lifetime achievement award. Best. Brows. Ever.
Here’s what I did to achieve this 1950’s inspired Jean Peters look:
FACE: With a concealer brush, I applied e.l.f. All Over Concealer Stick in Apricot Beige where needed and blended. With the sponge included, I applied Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation in Natural Ivory ( I like this for summer, has SPF 20). I then took a bronzer brush over this and buffed. I used Physician’s Formula Healthy Wear Bronzer (SPF 50) in Light to contour. With e.l.f. Angled Foundation Brush, I applied the bronzer to the hollows of the cheeks. I also contoured the temples and down the outside of the nose.
EYES: Take the time to admire those brows. With Benefit Instant Brow Pencil in Light, I filled in brows. I brushed them in place with a spoolie. With a large shadow brush, I applied Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Latte, a matte buttermilk, from lash line to brows. I closely lined the top lash liner with Estee Lauder Artist’s Eye Pencil in Softsmudge Brown. I curled lashes. Applied a few coats of Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara (not shown) to top lashes. I then applied a full set of Ardell Fashion Lashes.
LIPS: This look is really about the lips. And brows 🙂 I lined lips with L’Oreal Infallible Lipliner in Rose. Directly from the tube I applied Estee Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Rubellite, a medium pink with silver and pink pearl.
Now for a fragrance…yes, I’m being inspired by the roses and glamour, so that is why I’d suggest Dior Miss Dior for this look.
*Do you guys have any plans for the 4th? I foresee listening to a barking frug that can’t get over any firework toots and whistles. My husband got a new grill for “entertainment”, he says. I’m getting sick of eating burnt meat, but it makes him really happy. So, I foresee eating more burnt meat and vegetables. In a sick way, I kind of like the smell of sulfuric firework smoke. What about you?
