Pink maribou! False eyelashes! What isn’t there to love? Here’s what I did to get a flirty 1960’s look inspired by the lovely French actress, Anouk Aimée.
EYES: Being a look that is all about the eyes, I started there. First I applied, e.l.f. Essentials Eyelid Primer as an eye makeup foundation. While that is drying, I applied Alima Pure Satin Matte Eyeshadow in Raven, a dark brown, to brows with a hard, slanted brow brush. For this look, I’m using Wet n Wild Color Icon Palette in Lust and Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Optic, a pale dove gray shimmer. With a medium sized shadow brush, I applied Lancome Color Design Eyeshadow in Optic from lash line to crease. With another medium sized brush, I applied the nude mauve matte in the Wet n Wild Lust palette. I brushed this on under the brows, above the crease, and closer to the inner corner of the eye. In an exaggerated “v” motion in the outer corner and the crease, I applied with a smaller shadow brush, the shimmering smoke shade in the Wet n Wild Lust palette. And I blended outward. I took this shade and lined/smudged the bottom lash line. With a slanted liner brush, I applied Wet n Wild Mega Eyes Cream Eyeliner in Black. I lined thickly, getting thicker towards the outer corners. I curled lashes and applied a few coats of Mally Volumizing Mascara to top and bottom lashes. I then applied Ardell Fashion Lashes.
FACE: Under the eyes with a concealer brush, I applied e.l.f. All Over Cover Stick in Apricot Beige. With a wet sponge, I applied Lancôme Dual Finish Powder in Matte Ecru all over the face. With a blush brush, I applied Physician’s Formula Solar Powder Bronzer in Light Bronze, a matte bronzer, directly under my cheek bones.
LIPS: Lips are sheer and pretty. Directly from the tube, I applied Lancôme Juicy Tubes Lip Gloss in Fruity Pop, a sheer powder pink with pink shimmer.
I want a “pink” juice to complete this makeup look. And that is why I’d love to complete this look with the flirty-cosmetic fragrance, L’Artisan Parfumeur Drôle de Rose. It really goes with the pink maribou.
I really like this look for those with blue or gray eyes. It works for Anouk’s beautiful brown eyes too 😉
I hope everyone has a great first weekend of June. Finally, the weather here is forecasted to be clear and 77. I’m declaring this a regional holiday in the Pacific Northwest. I’m not doing anything but enjoying the sunshine (slathered in SPF, of course). Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
