Ursula with black hair and I love it! I’m guessing this pic is from the 60’s or maybe the early 70’s. I can’t find many pictures as Ursula Andress as a brunette so it’s difficult for me to “date” this one. Anyways, I love a dramatic eye makeup look. Who doesn’t? This makeup look works for most complexion but I think it would be amazing on medium to dark complexions. Here is what I used to get a similar look to Ursula’s:
EYES: With this look, I started with eye makeup so I wouldn’t mess up my complexion products. I filled in brows with Lancôme Le Crayon Poudre Brow Pencil in Natural Blonde. I brushed brows into place with the spoolie attached to the end of the pencil. Stubborn brows will need a brow gel. Under the eyes and on the lids, I applied Covergirl Simply Ageless Concealer in Corrector. I used colors in Wet n Wild Color Icon Palette in Greed. (You must buy this palette if you dig vintage/retro 60’s eye makeup looks). With a large, fluffy eyeshadow brush I applied the lightest matte beige shade from lash line to crease. From lash line to crease, I applied the matte black. I winged out on the top lash line. With a stiff slanted eyeliner brush, I lined the bottom lash line with the same matte black. Top and bottom lash lines are lined but never touch. I curled lashes and applied one coat of Hourglass Film Noir Mascara in Onyx to top and bottom lashes. I applied Ardell Duralash Lash Accents in Natural. Yep, I still use dime-store false lashes.
FACE: With Sephora Pro Kabuki Brush , I swirled on Maybelline Mineral Power Foundation in Nude in circular motions. With the same brush, I swirled on Cover FX Setting Powder in Translucent. On the cheeks with a blush brush, I applied Lancôme Blush Subtil in Cappucine, a natural medium matte brown.
LIPS: I lined lips with Jordana Lip Pencil in Natural, a lighter neutral brown. I applied mark Glow Baby Glow Lip Gloss in Peek-a-Boo (not pictured), a pale vanilla cream shade that I love. Over the gloss, I applied NYX Round Lipstick in Creamy Beige, a light beige sans shimmer. I blotted. The lip gloss stage can most likley be skipped but my lips are so dry right now from winter cold and wind. No color wants to stick to my lips right now.
Now for fragrance…I’m thinking something comforting and luscious like LUSH Vanillary. Surprisingly, I am loving this gourmet vanilla perfume especially in the winter.
I made it through work this week. Now two weeks off. Don’t hate me! I really don’t have any plans other than catch up on all that I’ve neglected over the past few months. Remember, I still live in a home renovation mess? Well, it doesn’t go away on its own. This week the sofa I ordered came. I feel motivated to decorate and be Martha Stewart again. The great room has been a disaster for too long! Decorating starts with home fragrance 😉 This weekend I have no plans other than avoiding the mall since Christmas is a week away. What about you? Any plans? Tron!!!
