Shirley MacLaine…you have to love her for her quirkiness alone. Here’s a late 1950’s look inspired by Shirley:
FACE: Under the eyes with a concealer brush, I applied MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW20 and blended. With the sponge included, I applied Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation in Natural Ivory. I applied NARS Blush in Gina, a matte medium peach, brushing up the cheeks. This blush shade would look so much better on a redhead than myself.
EYES: I filled in my brows with Benefit Instant Brow Pencil in Medium. I thickened my brows for more of a 50’s look. With a large shadow brush, I applied Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow in Brulee, a matte cream. With a wet eyeliner brush, I applied Clinique Water-Resistant Eyeliner in Natural Black. I lined the top lash line rather thickly and did not extend the line past the eye. I lined half of the bottom lash line with NARS Eyeliner Pencil in London, a matte gray. This adds some “thickness”. I curled lashes and applied Estee Lauder Magnascopic Macara in Black, a few coats to top lashes and only one to bottom. I then applied Ardell lashes.
LIPS: This look is all about the red lips. I lined lips with Maybelline ColorSensational Lip Liner in Clear. I love this product FYI. With a lip brush, I applied Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Certainly Red, a bright true red. With the applicator, I applied N.Y.C. Liquid Lip Shine in Sheer Ruby, a bright red lip gloss. I applied this to the bottom lip. I promise that my lips looked more like Shirley’s. The flash “changed” the color, very frustrating.
For a fragrance, I went with Estee Lauder Tuscany Per Donna, a floral spice.
I wanted to get more “costume” looks up before Halloween, but I have been so busy. Plus, I dress in costume daily 😉
Do you have any weekend plans? We don’t. We’re going mushroom hunting tomorrow. Frink and Moxi are going too. Yep, we adopted another smooshed face dog, Moxi. I hope to post pics of her soon. And then I hope to get the yard “winterized” on Sunday. Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!
