So, it’s New Year’s Eve. I wanted to do an over the top disco inspired look, but this pick of Diana Dors is festive enough. And I’m staying home. That’s never stopped me before, but I’m just not feeling like it today. Don’t you think Diana looks blonder than usual in this pic? It’s verging on silver to match her top! Anyways, I do love this look. This is a look that does work well with lighter complexions and those with light brown, blonde, and even grey hair. Here’s what I did to get this 50’s inspired look, unfortunately I don’t have a silver robe:
FACE: With my Elizabeth Arden Foundation Brush, I applied Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra in Buff 2. Under the eyes with my Bobbi Brown Concealer Brush , I applied e.l.f. All Over Cover Stick in Apricot Beige. This stick can also be used on blemishes. With my Guerlain Kabuki Brush, I applied Victoria’s Secret Pressed Mineral Powder in Medium 10. This powder has a bit of shimmer that looks natural. With a blush brush, I applied Covergirl Cheekers Blush in Classic Pink, a light but bright pink with faint silver shimmer.
EYES: Those brows are filled in, aren’t they? I don’t love them and personally, I’d feel stupid walking around (in public or at home on NYE) with dark, waxy brows like that. And that’s why I’m not. But, I will fill in brows with a darker than I usually do brow pencil, e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Lifter & Filler in Ash. I’m also going to take that lifter side and apply it under the brows and blend. With a large eyeshadow brush, I applied Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Latte, a light ivory beige that is matte. With a wet liner brush, I applied Clinique Water Resistant Eyeliner in Soft Black. This is my favorite cake eyeliner. It’s black but not too harsh. I lined, slightly wining out. On the bottom lash line, I applied Jordana Eyeliner Pencil in White, to open up eyes. I curled lashes and applied a coat of Hourglass Film Noir Mascara in Noir to top and bottom lashes. I applied Ardell Duralashes.
LIPS: When I do these looks, I always try to avoid limited edition colors because I want these to be looks that you can recreate any time of the year. However, I couldn’t resist. Revlon Fire & Ice Collection Super Lustrous Lipstick in Temptress is the perfect Diana Dors lipstick! It’s this pink and it’s in retro 50’s packaging. It’s a lipstick made for this look! Directly from the tube, I applied this lipstick, a satin light pink. It looks lighter of course, indoors or with a flash. In my pic, I’m standing in front of a window with blinds; hence, the stripes look.
Now for a fragrance. I want it to be cool, icy but feminine. That is why I am going for Creed Fleurissimo.
So, it’s NYE, do you have any plans? Like I said, I’ll be staying in, but I don’t mind that. I can’t think of anything less appealing than drunken masses. I’m not interested. Husband, Frink the Frug, and I will stay home, most likely being boring and playing Scrabble. It appears that Frink swallowed at least 2 letter tiles. I did salvage the /b/ from his fruggly mouth, but it’s half a /b/.
I hope everyone has a safe, fun, and wonderful New Year’s Eve!
